@Fromage001 Welcome! And don't worry if you don't feel like this is the right home. For Mastodon hosting, I'm using masto.host run by @mastohost which is very reasonably priced. I think most instances became invite only because of the bots. Putting the instance behind Cloudflare (free plan) dissuaded most of the bots.
Looks like these spring soled boots?
