by Kev Quirk led to some research on how to reduce the digital impact of websites and turned up the links below.
My Hubzilla page got a very poor rating. I will at least try to optimize images better. The only pluses are that
a. It is hosted at home and does not have many visitors. My own visits are only via the local network.
b. People don't need to visit the site at all if they see the posts on the fediverse, or use a feed aggregator
this has made me think that maybe my custom of aggregating various items throughout the day into a single post may be less effective than, in the traditional way of social media, i.e., creating a separate post for each item. When a post federates to hubzilla servers, aggregated items will usually be re-sent with each new edit, and, if the post is quite long, this will result in energy waste. If a post is edited, the edits, as far as I understand, are not re-sent to other fediverse sites.
