Social Media Breaks

For the past few months I’ve really taken a step back from social media. This wasn’t planned, but with various algorithm changes and the resulting increased demand for content generation, it was all just getting a bit much.

I’ve been on social media since the very beginning and am usually a fairly early adopter of new platforms. Social media has definitely changed a lot over the years, however, and instead of being somewhere you shared whatever you want, it now requires far more thought and curation if your intention is to be successful.

Blogiversary!

Despite only returning to the whole blogging thing a few weeks ago, turns out today is a bit of a birthday. My first ever blog post was December 15th 2007... literally 10 years ago!!!!

Now obviously I’m not claiming to have blogged consistently for the entirety of the past 10 years. I haven’t blogged at all (besides the odd Guest blog on other people’s) for he past 4 years, but it’s still kinda crazy to think about the idea of blogging being that old, when we still talk about it being a ‘new thing’.

Maybe it's a sign that I'm getting old, but lately I've been trying to work out ways of using technology less. I know that probably sounds odd, especially as you're reading this on the internet, using some sort of computer, smart phone or tablet, but it's true. When I was growing up in the 80's, everything was about the future. We had the Space Shuttle, Star Wars, Back to the Future, and the dawn of the computer game era. Back then, and indeed much into my teens and twenties, I've always been into the new thing. I've got no end of Apple products, I have a smart tv, and blu-ray. Everything you'd expect to find in a 'man pad'. But as much as I love some of the things we have available to us today, I do feel that things are getting a bit too much, to the detriment of our nature as human brings and individuals.

Internet Presence

We all have a website, it's a given, but what happens if your website goes down? This has just happened to me, through no fault of my own. My web host have managed to screw everything up during a server transfer and now I'm unable to gain FTP access to my webspace. Not ideal! I'm in the process of setting up with a new hosting company following the inability by my hosting provider to rectify the situation, but thats not the main problem. The main problem is that I currently have no website now, and that doesn't exactly help me get work.
