Never ending story
My other blog.
My personal Twitter.
Keep up with me (as I see of the bottom of so many blogs or posts)? Good Lord, I can barely keep up with me.
Last year I took nearly two months off from my blog because it felt like just another thing that was work and I had plenty on my plate with my real job as it was. What I learned from that is I don’t have to post every day and putting pressure on myself to is ridiculous. Instead now I post when I want to, which is mostly every day but if I skip a few days because I’m having time off or I’m worn out from work, then that’s fine too.
Scanning the above list I rarely if ever use my personal Twitter any more, I don’t get a lot of emails at my blog account and I’ve never pinned anything at Pinterest. I really do not have the time or inclination for all of this. I’m always interested when people start up secondary accounts in other forms of social media, such as Facebook, for their blogs. What do they put on there? If it’s just blog links then why bother? Same with Twitter. If you’re only Tweeting and re-Tweeting links then why? That’s not to judge anyone who does those things or more but I am fascinated by how it seems it’s not enough just to have a blog any more. You need all these other accounts you back you up or give you credibility.
My gut feeling is that it’s all linked to the increased desire to have a blog as a business rather than simply a blog as enjoyment. And again, not that there is anything wrong with that for the most part but it all feels a little clinical.
