Writing this blog is often a joy and struggle. From all the sass I give off in my daily life (sorry friends), it is actually harder to write about social media faults and successes than I thought it was. I thought I was the all knowing social goddess of my generation. This was going to be cake. False.
Truth is, you all scare me. The reason my stats are not anywhere near where I’d like them, it’s because I am too afraid to post on Facebook. I’ll post it on Twitter and Tumblr because that is where I feel the most accepted with my creative work. Even if we are afraid to admit it, the Facebook world is cruel, judgmental, and also sensitive. I am afraid to bring this blog there, right now.
My fellow WordPress homies at Thought Catalog and the geniuses at BuzzFeed are the reasons why I write and what I write about. These blogs are sarcastic, mean, truthful, witty, and relevant to what is happening everywhere in the world. From music to religion, they have your news covered with a new spin on “opinion pieces”. They have snarky remarks and provide insight on aspects of life we never even think about. I want my blog to be like that and in the funnest way possible. I don’t want to offend people. I want to educate by using humor and making my writing fun to read. This blogging experience is all about being passionate about what you write and enjoying the writing process, but still sharing riveting and relevant information. From what I have heard, that’s what I’m doing.
I’d also like to take this blog post opportunity to thank my friends who I harass on a daily basis to read my blog. You are all gems in my book, but if you break one of my Facebook rules, or I see you doing something I write about that I hate, I am going to call you out on your lack of reading my blog. That’s the price you pay to be my friend. And yes, the stats are a big component of success in the blogging world. But, in my opinion, if I get one less hashtag on Facebook, I am doing something right. It is more than just a numbers game to me.
So what’s next? What website do you want to read about? Do you feel like there is a place in social networking that you just don’t get and would like my opinion on? Tell me! Tweet Me! Comment! Anything, I’m everywhere on the internet.
