Something my acupuncturist said recently (sorry, I live in L.A.) has stuck with me. She said the problem with social media is everyone thinks they’re the star of their own adorable, wacky sitcom. LOOK HOW MUCH SOCIAL MEDIA I HAVE. I must be in like 80 adorable sitcoms. I’m frankly tired of a lot of it. All of this clicking killed my proper blogging too.
Facebook - 100% pictures of babies
GoodReads - where I learn exactly how damaging Twilight has been to society
Tumblr - where fairly illiterate 17 year old girls show you how they’re “brilliant at life” (actually spotted this description on a Tumblr)
Google+ – where I post Beavis and Butthead screencaps from Tumblr (I don’t even understand my behavior here)
Flickr - where my photos go to die a lonely death
Instagram - photos of sunsets
Twitter - pretty funny during a State of the Union address or when a celebrity dies
Pinterest - 90% wedding-obsessed pins, 10% Reddit LOLs that have finally filtered down to housewives
Yelp - eye-rolling reviews by college kids who think $8.95 is a lot for an entree
Spotify - where you can quietly sneak a Britney Spears song into a pretentious playlist and shock your friends
I guess I’m glad I don’t have Foursquare? For some reason, I never jumped off the cliff on that one.
So…can I axe you some questions? Has Tumblr killed your blogging? Has Twitter made you hate Facebook? Do you have EVEN MORE social medias than I do? Are you sleepy? How sleepy? Sleepy enough to sleep under your desk?
PS I might have been harsh on Pinterest. It’s pretty addictive actually.
