Budgie’s Journal #1 – Goodbye Social Media
There are many who find my posts and writings through social media, mostly Twitter or Facebook. You’re reading this, and I have abandoned both of these sites. Mostly. I’m not deactivating my accounts. That seems like an act of self-destruction for which I am not yet ready. I may return. Hell, I probably will knowing me.
This is going to be the first of what I am calling “Budgie’s Journal” entries. I’m also abandoning my format of posting only on Tuesdays nights. I’m going to post these as they come to me and I type them out. This is entry number one.
But you want to know why I left social media I presume.
Simply put: it’s time to move on. I won’t stop writing, I won’t stop promoting, and I won’t stop interacting. I’m just choosing to do it away from the constructs of Twitter and Facebook for now. I don’t know where I’ll end up, or if I’ll end up anywhere at all. As I stated earlier: I may just end up right where I was after a hiatus of who the hell knows how long.
I used to be part of a tight-knit group, but it has fallen apart over the last couple of years. Most of what I’ve seen has been negative nonsense, pile-on trolling, and an overwhelming sense of rejection perpetuated all around me. I may change my mind. I may never return. But I’m looking forward to see what happens. This is about pushing that negativity away and regaining some semblance of focus.
There are those who know how to get ahold of me using other means. I encourage you to so do.
The projects I have pending (Freedom Lane, Blood Drive, The Secret of my Shemale Success, and Dusk Vol 2) will be finished at some point. But I may take a break from the fiction and do some journaling over the summer. Maybe it’s time to stop over-saturating the world with myself.
Again, who knows what I’ll do? I sure as hell don’t.
