@valgrind @pfx hihi!! welcome to mastodon:D I’d start by seeing what’s happening on your local timeline and then take it from there (you'll come across more ppl to follow via other ppl's interactions and boosts)
would also defo recommend doing a # introduction post to tell people who you are and what you’re interested in ^^
Consider this a friendly, local pub. Make yourself at home, bring your friends, have a good time! Meet new people, have a laugh, enjoy the ambience, and the Oxford commas.
