Everybody's Free (To Write Websites)

A parody of the "Wear Sunscreen" thing from the late 90s. This is just fabulous.

I’m gonna keep this brief as you need to click that link above. This post is absolutely brilliant - Sara’s parody is fantastic in its own right, but then Robb and Keenan come along to turn it into a video.

Go there now!

Could You Give Up Social Media?

 

I have a love hate relationship with social media. In some respects it's great, but in others it's a nightmare. I'm wondering if I could give up social media entirely...

I've made no secret of the fact that I've struggled with social media in the past and I've taken some steps to try and make my social media experience a little more pleasant. But I dunno, social media is still a bit...shit.

It's full of politics, hot takes, and lots of other stuff that I don't wanna see. But here's the rub; it's also full of interesting posts from people that I do wanna see.

It's a quandary.

I envy people like Manu and Nicolas, who have just fucked social media off all together.

I'd love to be able to do the same, but I think I'd miss it. As much as I hate to admit it, I would miss it. I enjoy the daily interactions I have with cool people on Mastodon.

I don't enjoy having to deal with the troves of dickheads, however. But I think that's par for the course for any space where lots of people congregate. I'm under no illusion that many people would read what I post and think I'm one of those dick heads.

Everyone is a dickhead to someone. :)

Having thought about whether or not I could give up social media, I think it's the wrong question.

Yes, I could give it up. But would I want to give it up? Right now, the answer to that question is "no".

What about you; could/would you give up social media?
