Social Media Sigh

Google is too fast

Email too slow

Facebook too crowded

Twitter too short

YouTube too much fun

Google+ too much Google

LinkedIn too professional

Flickr too photographic

Instagram too much photo food

Blogging too cool,

In other words,

Social media is a bit too social.

Yet to quit it all requires

A bit more courage than I have right now.

I will try instead to be

A little less connected,

And a bit more focused.

  1. I read a post where my understanding of an Artist needs a good balance of focus and connection for ongoing support of the Artist’s creation. I am not striving to be an artist but I certainly appreciate the works. Art has suffered like everything else the last 100 years to me and needs integrity returned to it too. Good Luck.

  2. Agree, agree.
    I have successfully deleted my social media accounts: Facebook, Twitter. And now I’m left with my blogs and my email account only.
    It is peaceful. My reasons to leave them behind was time (of course), and the superficiality of the virtual world… It got a bit overwhelming. And might I say, I feel so much better now.
    Good luck to you!

    1. Oh, I do have time to write, Frederick. The first thing I do in the morning is write. That way I can be sure that I whatever happens during the day I have not lived in vain. But sometimes, although the urge to write is great, one has nothing worthwhile to say…

  3. I’ve had the exact same thoughts about blogging recently. Unfortunately, it is very hard to get back into post writing… I haven’t added anything since January! Being free from updating your blog for a while can be a surprisingly good feeling. ๐Ÿ™‚ I will be posting soon though.

    1. Hope you’re well, Daniel. Fun as it is, blogging can feel like an obligation, especially since it can eat up more time than other social networks. I was wondering, do you have FB?

      1. Thanks! Hope you’re doing fine too! ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t have a Facebook account. I only have WordPress and recently Deviantart.

          1. I do! ๐Ÿ™‚ Her name’s Eve and she’s everything I could possibly want in a woman and more! She’s wonderful! ๐Ÿ™‚
            How about you? Is there anyone special in your life at the moment?

              1. Thanks! It’s still a bit early on to be thinking about marriage but I genuinely believe that she’s the One! Good luck with your friend too! ๐Ÿ™‚
