So I understand Social Media is now a very important way of life. A lot of businesses, artists, athletes, celebrity’s, charities, etc etc rely on social media to get known. & Yes.. It can work wonders!!!! However, the last couple months I have been getting tired of everything. I find it overwhelming…& well just a plain waste of time.
I have to admit since starting my Blog & my online shop…. I have had to add a few accounts.. which I then got in too deep with.
2 personal emails… 2 work emails
2 facebook accounts… 2 twitter accounts
2 instagram accounts…
That is 10 accounts I was checking on a daily basis… Nasty right!!!?? Although I have to admit that without social media I would have lost touch with some close friends… would have not had as many people find out about my blog or online store either.. but with this being said I decided to “DeActive” my social media life… so to speak!
I want to worry about spending time outside.. working on projects for my store.. spend MORE time with T after work.. & instead of reading about other peoples life.. & goings on… I want to be ACTIVE in my own goings on… while riding passenger I want to look at the mountains… the prairies… & not miss that massive moose that briskly ran into the trees while my head was in my phone.. Although I LOVE looking at peoples photo’s on instagram.. I have to admit.
Also, I will no longer feel bad for missing peoples calls…because when I get home from work or on the weekend.. I usually leave my phone on the counter in the house. & I will get back to you! Promise.
Or when I go into a store I will more than often leave my phone in my truck, as I feel its rude to be talking on the phone when around others, whatever it is can more than often wait.. & you will make the cashiers day by saying “Hi”.
Remember this is JUST my own personal opinion, & social media can be hugely beneficial (mostly pinterest! so many smart ideas.. & delicious delicious fooo!).
I do not judge what other people Do..or Post.. or Share.. or Like or ReTweet or Favorite or Pin or etc…
each to their own.
So with this being said I have deleted some/most of my accounts.
So you can catch me on Instagram… Or on my WildRose Gypsy Facebook page… but other than that I hope to talk to you personally, enjoy the outdoors, & the “un-distracted” time with family..friends..& T.
Live in the moment that’s yours… as we only get a few… Take the time to unplug as much as you can! Your missing out on some amazing things!!! 🙂 Plus I bet it will make your head, your heart & your eyes feel better~!!~
Luv Ya.. WRG (slight hypocrite.. but I didn’t say I was completely shutting it down..or how could I share these thoughts with you..) 😉
