I deliberately try to follow diverse people on Micro.Blog. Occasionally I unfollow someone if I find their posts just don't really interest me. Unfortunately, on scanning the list of 350+ people I follow I'd estimate half or more aren't actually active. 😒
I aim to find people from other countries, provided I have some kind of hope of understanding what they're writing about — that's just a language issue. The Discover feed is a great source for finding people.
Photos of dogs, cats, landscapes are highly likely to 'hook' me. I also try to follow any women on Micro.Blog.
I currently follow people who are in or seem to be from these countries and who seem to still be active:
- New Zealand (of course)
- Brazil (added 27-Nov-20)
- Ireland (added 26-Nov-20)
- Italy (added 04-Jan-20)
- Philippines (added 26-Nov-20)
- Poland (added 26-Nov-20)
- Portugal (added 26-Nov-20)
- Puerto Rico
- Vietnam (added 27-Nov-20)
This list of countries may not be utterly accurate — sometimes it's my best guess. There may be others I follow where I just don't know where they live. I must say, 19 countries is a pretty pleasing number.
Update 19-Dec-19: added India, so now 20 countries.
Update 26-Nov-20: I checked my list and added several countries. Note: visit [micro.blog](https://micro.blog/)[name]/following to see the list of follows.
