I haven’t written here since August?? Wow, I didn’t realize it had been so long. I sit down to write, but nothing comes to mind…there’s so much going on in the world and so much stress we’re all dealing with, and I easily get swept up in the despair and fear. Which leaves not a lot of anything in my mind worth publishing here.
My intention this year was to find one or two platforms to hang out on, rock them, and grow my healing business. Instead, I’m all over the place, jumping from one to another (hello, Pisces), and nothing is growing.
I do miss writing, so you’ll forgive me if this becomes more like a LiveJournal blog than a purpose-driven one. Maybe by having this as the focal point, I will be able to shift through the rest of the sites and figure out where I really, truly want to hang out. Twitter, my go-to, is filled with all the horrors of this year; Instagram, while void of the horror, implemented FB’s stupid algorithm, and when you log in, posts from 4+ days ago show up. It’s incredibly annoying, and I find that many pictures aren’t showing up in my feed, just as posts don’t show up on FB (which I do NOT use). I’m trying Tumblr again, but not sure how that will go: I really just chose it because chronological timelines are still intact there. It may not last, because what the hell am I thinking, adding another iron in the fire??
Hunh…it feels like I’m so many other places, but that must be because of the social media work I do for a friend, which adds a few more accounts to my plate. There is my healing website, but I haven’t blogged anything there for months, either. Right now it’s pretty much just a static site.
I would love nothing more than to step away from everything until the new year, but it’s not possible. Are you feeling overwhelmed, too? How do you handle it and still stay connected?
I guess the real question is, why do we feel we MUST stay connected? 99% of the people I follow are ones I will most likely never meet in person. So what feeds the need to interact as we all do, following more and more people, friending more and more…why? How close are we really, when it come right down to it?
I’m just rambling here, trying to get my mind used to writing again, so apologies if this is a bit disjointed. 🙂
