A reminder that #Google is evicting the early adopters of its #GoogleWorkspace service (formerly known as #GoogleSuite aka #GSuite née #GoogleApps), who were still on the 'lifetime' #free legacy plan aimed at families, small communities and small businesses:
Free will always turn out to be #freemium and bite me in the arse.
(Yes, no need to tell me I should've known or to remind me to #deGoogle. Please keep that for your own posts rather than at-replies.)

So: building a personal #IndieWeb capable gallery of my sociallly-shared photos from various sources, keeping it light, pulling in new posts automatically (#PESOS) and eventually posting on my gallery and auto-posting it to Pixelfed/Twitter/Flickr/etc. (#POSSE) on a per-photo basis. Probably using #eleventy.
Anyone have any recommendations on tools that might be better than WP/11ty, or that would work well with this workflow?

Yay, my visual cortex is done defragging!
Or whatever the heck is going on when I get a visual #migraine
