One Month At A Time

Friday roundup and resolution own up

There’s not much to report about my attempts at cutting back on social media.

Last weekend wasn’t great. I found myself edging back toward Facebook and Instagram. Rather than just posting what I was supposed to, I loitered a bit and wound up wasting some time scrolling mindlessly.

I’ll try again.

This sounds a little weird because until I can figure out how to get the blog to show up on the main newspaper website, this is being circulated entirely through the power of Facebook.

I post the link on my personal page and that’s my distribution.

So far, it doesn’t feel like I’m getting much traffic, but blogs tend take time and persistence to become noticed.

Nobody is bored enough to start following, but I’m patient and don’t have anything better to do.

Anyway, all I’m doing with this particular resolution is adjust my consumption to a healthy level.

I don’t think social media is evil. It serves a need. Everybody gets bored. Everybody gets lonesome. You just want to talk to someone about the new Netflix show you’re watching, but who in their right mind wants a text or (clutch the pearls) a phone call at 2:30 in the morning?

Why are you even up? Go to bed.

I hope to do better this weekend.

Meanwhile, this week with CrossFit has gone very well. I should make it to five classes total this week, including one in Hurricane and another in South Charleston.

I have also begun to finalize what I will be doing next month and what I’ll be doing in May. March and April are a little up in the air at the moment, but I have some good leads.

Suggestions, as always, are welcome.

Have a good weekend everybody.
