You know what? I might be taking it back!
Could be the wine talking, but reading a night of tumblr makes me nostalgic! However if I’m doing this, I might have to start over again. That way I could go all-in again. Anonymity to write anything that comes to mind without worrying about co-workers, IRL morons, or traceability through email or nicknames.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not ashamed or afraid to disclose anything about my person. I am who I am, and nothing can change that. But at the same time, to know me is to know all of me, and selective indulgence might leave a somewhat malevolent impression.
Besides, this account is somewhat encumbered from the early days of Twitter. Times have changed, and with time, people change.
But before you label me a douche let me assure you that 98% of the people I’m following with @mentalvasectomy here on tumblr, I would choose to follow again if I was to actually change my handle.
But let’s be frank. Even though I like shitloads of you, that doesn’t mean the same is true the other way around!
I was always convinced that “Social Media” was supposed to be about the People you meet and get to know online. I honestly despised the early culture that saturated Twitter, you know, “the popularity contest/favstar”-thing… and in all honesty that was what made me opt-out in the end.
to end this rant..
When you get new followers, talk to them, take an interest in them and get to know them. It’s the crazy ass human beings that make this shit worth doing. It IS after all the friendships we form that tie us together in the end, IRL and online!
Over and out! More wine!!
