Amanda

Hi and thanks for stopping by. My name is Amanda Rush, and I'm building a homepage like it's 1999. I'm doing this for a number of reasons. First, I want to own all my content and have control over it, and to that end I am constantly updating this site so that it contains as much of my data as possible from any silo I may have an account on. I decided to start doing this when I finally got tired of all the curated timeline nonsense and the social media design element that encourages us to be horrible to each other online for clicks. I'm not saying you have to join me but of course I'd love it if you jumped ship and joined the indieweb with me. In the meantime, enjoy my content.

Lord knows I have some very strong criticisms of the blind community, but if you think that the solution to constant negativity in your social media feeds is hang out with less blind people you haven’t spent time in any other small, tight-knit community. And if you want a less bitchy social media feed, spend less time on social media. Step away from your keyboard and your phone and go outside. I swear, the people constantly bitching about drama are worse than the people supposedly creating the drama.
