Here we go again
Well, I didn’t think I’d be blogging again, but here we are.
I’ve had this site for a while now, and I never really knew exactly want to do with it. In regards to a portfolio site to find work, it never really did the trick seeing as 9 times out of 10 I get my work through referrals and word of mouth. Even with the company website, it’s all for naught as it’s often repeat clients, friends, and word of mouth. Then I just kept it up as a gallery, and that just seemed like a waste of time, and then I thought about using this site for my own personal purposes… But what those were exactly, I wasn’t sure.
See, almost two years ago, I dropped off “social media.”
Mostly Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and the likes. I still have a Linkedin, for how long is another story, and I did post regularly on Medium, until all of these companies started getting… Well… We all know how they got. And it really annoyed me. And the people on those platforms annoyed me. And the more time went on, and you started to see things as they were - tech companies operating under the influence of political parties - man, I really just had enough.
I’m a free speech kind of guy.
I say what I mean and I mean what I say. But when you’re on the social platforms, sometimes what I say isn’t exactly of popular or accepted opinion. Being in business, especially in the entertainment business as people’s insecurities and egos are like a freshly cooled piece of glass. Now, it’s not to say that what I discuss is harsh or vulgar, it’s just a disagreeing point of view.
And so since being off mainstream social media platforms, I really haven’t had a need to go back. I’ve taken a look at alternative platforms like Minds, BitChute, Gab, Dissenter, and Solid, but honestly…
I really don’t care about social media.
Over the last two years, my life has been much calmer, quieter, focused and simple. Sometimes I try to be social because of the company, but honestly, sometimes I feel like deleting all social platforms. It’s a waste.
