I haven't blogged in a while...


I thought my next sentence was going to be "but that's not because I haven't done anything that I wanted to blog about...", but then I realised that I didn't want to blog about it. That's the big change that's happened for me recently, I've stopped living online, sharing every little thing I do. Don't get me wrong, I haven't given up on social media completely, but I don't spend anywhere near as much time there and I certainly don't post as much as I used to.

What I do post has changed too...

I post very little about what I'm doing in my personal life, because, well, it's personal and you don't need to know what I'm doing there, it's not for public consumption.

I hardly post at all on Twitter or Facebook although I do use them both for messaging friends. Most of what I put on social media now is on Instagram and it's nearly all writing/creativity related because that's a big part of who I am and is certainly the area of my life that I want to share with an audience.

And guess what?

I'm actually a lot happier for not sharing everything with the world at large and I don't for a minute believe that it's made a difference to anybody else that they don't receive endless updates on my day to day existence.

Are you going to keep blogging then?

The honest answer is "I really don't know", I'm still thinking about the direction my work is taking and what that means for how I share what I do. I guess you'll just have to watch this space...
