Not joining: it’s what I’m famous for. I’ve always been more content to strut to my own beat rather than go with the flow. I often resist change and will purposely avoid jumping bandwagons simply out of principle.
The same could not be more true of my relationship with social media. I was one of those straggling converts from MySpace to Facebook years ago. For the longest time I held my ground over Twitter, unable to see the point in “micro blogging”. However, as this blog gains the structure and focused content it’s been featuring lately, I find myself with less opportunities to share personal thoughts in more than 140 characters. Isn’t that always the chagrin of Twitter?
Last night I started a Tumblr account-slash-blog in an effort to bring back a personal aspect to my online interactions. From what I can tell so far, I think Tumblr may just suit my needs quite creatively because it’s essentially an online scrapbook. You don’t need to be on Tumblr to check me out – my new postings will automatically be posted to my Twitter account. So simple.
