i should probably start off by saying that i have commitment issues, best to get that out of the way from the start so we all know what we’re getting ourselves into when i inevitably stop posting in a couple of weeks. it’s the era of the influencer (and influenza) & everyone and their mother spends every waking moment on some form of social media?? funnily enough depreciating actual social interaction, it’s become some sort of unspoken digital fight to the end between #blessed gladiators of performative positivity in the meta-colosseum of IG & TikTok. don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate it! in fact i personally feel there’s so much to gain from the sheer volume of resources available online. but maybe i’ve just been doing this for too long? and maybe i’m tired??? of publishing only the most perfect, media trained, commercially friendly iteration of myself; literally everything and anything but my actual thoughts on occasion. for what is the point of having insights that show a wide reach when you constantly feel like you’re falling short of your own expectations of authenticity? for what it’s worth, i don’t think i’m going to announce that i’ve started writing again. if you’re here reading this then you are (you probably have a bit too much free time -no shade- me too) because for now at least, even if only on this platform and nowhere else, i’m going to prioritise my own opinion.
