Going Backward with Social Media

26 Aug

So I just realized I hadn’t blogged in a long time. Yep–just now. Better late than never, right? I only wish I had something mind-blowing to share, but, alas, not quite yet.

Anywho, life is cray. I just finished up the joy of meeting a book deadline, the day job’s hours have been insane, and I’m starting the always exciting journey of self-publishing. Whee! In the midst of this, I’ve come to the conclusion that social media just isn’t this introvert’s thing. Now, while I don’t plan to disappear completely–at least not yet–I do plan to pull back on a lot of it. I started the process of whittling down my Facebook friend list long ago, but then I got distracted (shocking, huh?) and never followed through like I thought I would. So it’s time for me to bid adieu to many FB friends and Twitter friends for now. It’s all a bit overwhelming at times and it only seems logical for me to friend/follow the very few I actually interact with on a semi-regular basis. Perhaps one day I’ll be cool enough to feel comfortable ditching the social media altogether. But what can I say? It is a wonderful way to procrastinate and I can always dig that. Hehe. Besides, I’m sure this will only help Ms. Procrastinator’s productivity, lol. I still appreciate so many of the acquaintances I’ve made during my first year of being published. It’s been a wild, eye-opening ride!

Here’s to thoroughly enjoying the rest of it.
