Can’t believe it’s been over a week since I last posted. I hadn’t really thought about it until I read Kristen’s Wednesday post, Frankenfriends & Zombie Tweets. It’s basically about writers who are there one minute on social media and gone the next. And then back again. While I didn’t think I was one of the examples who inspired the post, I did sort of feel like a distant cousin of those guys.
When it comes to social media and blogging, I am not consistent. I try, but things come up. People might say I’m making excuses or not working hard enough, but the only person who knows the truth about what’s going on in my life is me. Some weeks, I’ve got plenty of time to express my thoughts, say hi to friends AND write. Other weeks, I’m lucky if I turn the computer on. It’s not something I do on purpose. I’m always working on ways to balance it all out. It’s the ever evolving process.
Now, here’s where I think I differ from the people Kristen was writing about.
When the frankenfriend resurfaces, it’s usually to promo something. Something that costs money and he might be looking to YOU to help sell his crap.
I’d never do that.
I barely promo my blog posts. The one tweet that goes out when it first posts is it. If I go back on social media again, it’s just to talk to my friends.
I’ve gone some stretches where I’m a ghost, but when I poke my head up, all my buddies are there as if I were never gone. So, I must be doing something right. Even people who I don’t chat with a lot or I’m just starting to get to know are like, “Hey! Good to see you.” I suppose whatever impression I leave on people is a good enough one that they’re glad to see me when I’m around.
I like that. A LOT.
So, to the few, the happy few, thanks for sticking with me.
