Once again, (a well-used oxymoron) I find myself deafened by the cacophony that is social media. My desperate attempt to grab hold and hang on has proven to be unsuccessful, another one bites the dust ( wink). I still enjoy my time on Pinterest ( I’m still rearranging my boards). But, Facebook, Google +, Twitter and Instagram…..well, I just don’t enjoy them and there really is not much interaction there at all. It’s supposed to be this wonderful connection with old and new friends. But, it ends up feeling more like work and a few desperate pleas asking you to visit Katherines Corner or to share with the social network world what’s happening on the corner. Facebook barely has any views at all and two or three comments once in a while from a few darling readers ( you know who you are, and I am always grateful).
When do I say and really mean, I’m done? How many times do I have to talk, write and ponder over breaking free from social media?…
We all know that readers, email subscriptions and comments are the lifeblood of any blog. Although the writer brings the blog to life through creativity and in my case, a love of sharing. It is the readers that make an online journal the joy that I think it should be.
Did social media bring you to Katherines Corner?
Once again I’ll ask you the unanswered question from the Saturday Sharing post (if you missed it you can click HERE to get caught up). What keeps you coming back to Katherines Corner? You can be very honest….. If it’s just for the giveaways, that’s okay, please let me know in the comments. If I finally do break free of social media I might actually find time to read a book!
Would you still be a subscriber, reader and bloggy friend if I didn’t post on social media (with the exception of Pinterest)?
I look forward to reading your comments. I hope to see you all back here tomorrow for the TFT blog party for blog writers and blog readers.
