STATUS – 29.02.2020

Reporting from #1000mphClub.

That was quite a 24-hour run. One live radio show plus two extra episodes recorded me as a guest yesterday evening. Today gave two trainings at NLTR Academy from 9:30 to 17:00. Now headed back home. There’s still a NewsLabTurkey newsletter to be finished tonight. Now taking couple notes for my personal newsletter —which I’ve been neglecting for a while— before taking a short nap on the bus.

PS: testing to see if I can post from the WordPress Mobile app. Sorry if it looks weird on the website.

Rethinking How I Use Internet: 5

This entry is part 5 of 10 in the series Rethinking the Internet

Decided to experiment on my social media use: I’ll be giving most of the control to the automation for a while.

It’s not that I’m trying to go Hard Waldenponding. (Thanks for pointing that term out Warren.) But instead, taking a step back during the adjustment process. Because that’s what I need right now.

With September on its way, workload is getting heavier and #1000mphclub life is coming back strong. This means I have to give up something to save some space in my mind. But at the same time, totally quitting social media is not an option. Not just because I’m a freelance writer but also there are people I’m actually interested in what they’re doing.

So I decided to go with lurking and automation for a while. Meaning, I’ll be mostly in read-only mode (exception will be the private channels) and most of the posting will happen through automated stuff. This also means more blog posts, regular newsletters and Patreon posts, because those are, in a sense, private channels too.

I’m going with this option not just because I need to save some energy but also want to see if and how my perspective about those platforms will change. Stepping back and looking from a distance may help me to gain a different perspective.

Not sure how long it’s going to last but the current situation already forces me to stay away until the end of September. We’ll see how it goes.
