These past couple of years, my blog has moved beyond a simple hobby for me and turned into something I genuinely want to foster and grow, not just as an outlet for myself, but as something I want other people to enjoy as well. My problem is that, to grow my blog any more, I’m going to have to start promoting it, something that the very nature of the internet itself has created an insurmountable roadblock that I’m not sure I can overcome.
I’ve found myself getting more and more frustrated using social media of late. Twitter, Instagram and I’ve all but stopped using Facebook completely. The services all seem to do more harm than good when it comes to their original intended purpose these days.
Outside of contacting people you actually know in real life. The platforms seem to be little more than people making hot (irony much) takes, daring anyone to question them, and when they do it turns into a venomous debate over said subject. Which might be the most pointless activity known to mankind.
