Toot Planet is creating mastodon instance!

patrons

$24
per month
I'm the current administrator, moderator, and feature-developer for tootplanet.space - a small mastodon instance with the prettiest UI! It's open for registration.

You can check out how that looks on the UI preview page, here.

I've been doing this since early April, mostly to have a place to talk to my friends, but also in the hopes of building a small community of interesting people. Setting it up was a bit expensive, as I learned what the heck I'm doing with this, but it's currently settled to a reasonable amount.

Currently, the breakdown of time and money costs is roughly:

  • $10-15/mo for hosting services
  • ~1hr/day on basic maintenance
  • Pretty much constant monitoring to make sure nothing's down or broken
  • Keeping the instance up to date, with all the major release upgrades, which is shaping up to be a 1-3 day process every few weeks.
I also put in a few hours a week or more on developing new features and customizing tweaks.
