Reposting a non-Amazon version.
Hi! If for whatever reason you actually like my posts, it would be really lovely if you helped my soon-to-be-born human child be equipped for the world.
This year, I moved across the country, got a new job, became an American citizen, and bought a house. Money is tight.
I love the fedi community and every little $7 mitten or $5 pacifier clip helps my wife and I.
bigshoulders.city is a Mastodon instance for Chicagoans current, former, and future. Its name comes from Carl Sandburg, who once compared ships pulling out to “mastodons, arising from lethargic sleep.” Our goal for bigshoulders.city is to build a community of friends and neighbors across the Windy City. Toot your pho place recommendations, meet-up ideas, pothole gripes, creative dibs, and cross-town baseball taunts—whatever you want, as long it abides by our short and sweet content policy.
For now, membership in bigshoulders.city is subject to approval. if you don’t have an invite or referral, email our admin with a Toot-length intro.
