@MitchWagner welcome aboard Mitch! Nice to have you in the community. I just wanted to say that I think you did happen to just have signed up on a bad day. I've seen that Manton, the guy that created / runs Micro.Blog has had reports of slow running and he's told us he's working on this now. There's a Slack channel for micro.blog where you will see some information such as this. Let me know if you want an invite.
