My flirting with Micro.blog is over.

I have gone to a free account on Micro.blog. I  still have not figured out what use I can make of it. I tried posting little quips, but no one seems to respond and it seems like it is a vast emptiness you write to. Maybe if I set it up on my own server, it might make sense, but paying 5 dollars a month for something I hardly use seems to be a waste. Maybe someone can explain to me the benefits of it. Ciao.
