I’m back, bitches

I'm So Happy to be back

I’m back.

I missed you. No, not you in particular. The collective you.

OK, fine. I did miss you.

But really though, I’m glad to be back.

I took a break for a number of reasons.

  • I got bored.
  • There’s only so much to bitch about social media.
  • I trained for a half marathon, which meant time spent blogging was spent running and praying I don’t die of exhaustion.
  • Blogging doesn’t pay my bills.
  • I decided it was more important to have a life with real meaning off the internet, rather than waste my life on the screen.

But here I am, back for more. I guess you can say that I’m a glutton for punishment.

There have also been a number of topics that have been bugging me. Social media bloggers have been arguing back and forth about meaningless topics that have no value. We’ve stepped away from critical analysis of the tools and how people and businesses use them. Instead, I see pointless bickering, opinions offered as facts, and critical thinking sacrificed in favor of bite-sized information crammed into poorly designed infographics.

Ugh.

Someone needs to elevate the conversation. And for fuck’s sake I guess it’s going to be me.

So, this week I’ll be blogging about age, the future of social media, Twitter, and lurking. Maybe I’ll throw in a post about cats too, or what diarrhea can teach you about Pinterest marketing strategies.

It’s good to be back kiddos. What’s on your plate this week?

       @wagnerwrites You might need to talk to a professional about those.
