There is a gravitational pull of social media. I truly enjoy the posts I read on Facebook, Twitter, App.net, Google + and Tumblr. But something has to be done about it, as it tends to rob us from the real experience. There needs to be a purpose and a limit.
My blog is my quite place, a place where it is all about me. This is where my thoughts can get pushed to the ether and allow me to express myself in the best way possible. You can’t do that with social, there is too much noise. Every second I spent “socializing” would be better off spent reading and writing.
These two activities are a true priority for me. Water cooler conversations should be limited.
