I have been largely absent from WordPress for almost two months now. I pop by, and look around and post something, and then I disappear.
Now, this is not because I have suddenly developed snobbishness or something. It is just that I have suddenly become quite overwhelmed by everything that is out there.
My brain is old, weak and feeble. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, 500 px, VuewBug, WordPress, 500px, Nikonians, Behance Flickr, Fine Art America, Zazzle….. they all haunt my dreams, and my waking spaces.
Don’t forget WhatsApp and WeChat.
Oh yes, there is LinkedIn as well
Did I forget to mention Ted?
They all scream for attention. Our attention.
So, what happened, is that I did not have the time to chalk out all the stuff that I want to do with respect to my business/photography and writing plans.
Suddenly, being social was not about being social, but was about being unsocial, as I did not have time for friends and family.
Sigh. Don’t blame me. I am old fashioned. I am not like one of you young guns who floats happily between screen and finger with the click of a brain synapse.
My brain synapses are slowly creaking, and are beginning to feel the stress.
Someone told me that nowadays, we have more knowledge (call that data) generated in one week, than the world, in the early 1800’s, generated in a year.
What he forgot to mention was that the day in the early 1800’s comprised of 24 hours, as it does today. Each hour is comprised of 60 minutes, which is comprised of 60 seconds.
Oh… my God!
And, given the fact that there are more people now, there are more parents, uncles, aunts, cousins, friends, secret lovers etc screaming for attention in ‘real time’.
Oh….. my Gawd!
So, I decided that I need to chalk out a social media strategy, and figure out where I want to be…
Else, it will be the looney bin for me!
