Yeah, okay, so maybe the lack of posts isn’t so much because of my busy-ness but rather because I’m too lazy and I can’t really think of what to blog about? To be fair, I picked up two more shifts per week compared to April/May so there’s that.
So anyway, I thought I’d talk about the social media sites I spend a lot of time on, and how I use them differently. Let’s go!
- Facebook – So this one is probably the one most people are familiar with. I keep it around for three reasons: for work, because that’s how I get my weekly schedule; for pictures, and staying in touch with old friends in general; and most importantly, birthdays! I don’t really post much content on Facebook, save the occasional snarky status update.
- Twitter – I’m really sassy on Twitter. I’m not a very political person but I think Twitter is where most of my political and socioeconomic opinions are posted. Either that, or I’m retweeting Razorback stuff. Go Hogs!
- Reddit – This, along with Twitter, are my sources for news. The added benefit to Reddit is it’s also entertainment in that I can directly subscribe to feeds for topics that I am interested in. There’s subreddits for Lincoln, Fayetteville, tennis, crappy design, slowcooking, and urban planning, just to name a few. I post zero original content and most of my contribution is, like on Twitter, sassy comments.
- Tumblr – So I really never post on Tumblr anymore. I think I just outgrew it. Not sure if it’s the format, or the crowd I follow, or what. I think a lot of it was just I got tired of the same old stuff getting reposted. Doctor Who fandom this, gifs and terrible hashtags that. I feel like it tied me down emotionally, keeping me from maturing by holding onto things that I could relate to with other people but not actually form a real bond over. So I left. Don’t get me wrong. Tumblr introduced me to a lot of cool people and things, and it taught me a lot about love and life and being a good person. Tumblr is a place that people can be themselves without being judged. But it was just time to move on.
- WordPress – I never post on WordPress either, haha. But when I do, I think it’s a really good way for me to just wrap things up or gather my thoughts on a particular topic. Like journaling. Which is why I don’t mind so much whether people actually read it. But for those who do, I hope you get something out of it. It’s not like I’m super deep or insightful with these posts, but maybe just reading it will get you to think, “Oh yeah, this and this is how I personally gather my thoughts on a particular topic,” or “Posting political beliefs on social media is always a disaster!”
So yeah, that’s what I use the internet for. That, and a whole lot of YouTube and Netflix. Maybe that’ll be my next post. IF I EVER POST AGAIN HAH
