I don't know what it is about me that has to go All Or Nothing, but it's the way I work. I just deleted my Twitter account and my Instagram account.
You know, you kind of have to have a committed relationship with social media sites these days. I already broke up with Facebook a while back... But seriously, you feel pressure to "check in" and have this compulsive need to make sure you respond to people's posts, and if you're marketing something, you feel this strange need to market your books but at the same time hate doing it because you know how totally annoying it is to see other authors Tweeting their books all the time... And you get on there when you're bored, throwing hours of your life into a black hole, and you're seeing ads from people you don't even follow, but the Tweets are there because someone paid to have them flashed in your face, and...ugh. Back to the relationship comparison, when I feel like a relationship is more trouble than it brings joy, I tend to walk away from it. I know I may have pissed off a bunch of people because of that (both online and in real time throughout the years), but when things start to make you feel icky day after day after day, with more negative than positive, they just need to go.
I'm either into it, or I'm over it.
I'm also kind of dramatic. But there it is.
