Thanks for your contributions to SN and within the bitcoin field! Just started reading your guides. Thanks for writing those! I'm doing combo of private nodes on Blixt and CLN (on Embassy Pro device) and an LND routing node that I'm having fun managing (also on Embassy Pro). While I would prefer to have clearnet support (this is supposedly coming in 2023), Tor only seems to be working okay for the moment. I'm not running a routing node to get rich but rather to contribute to decentralization of the LN network and support better liquidity.
I have had quite a few force closures on me lately, however. I've reached out to the node operators and the theme is that they are running their nodes on Umbrel and did not initiate the force closures or even know why they are happening.
My "best" channels are the big players (like c=) to be honest. Great flow both directions with that. I'll have to be more selective in choose channels to open in the future.
Thanks again for your work!
