Hiatus

Standard

I’m addicted to social media. I know it’s sounds stupid, but I have an unhealthy obsession with it. I compulsively check Twitter to see what news people are posting, what links are popular. I’m addicted to information. I crave interaction. And it’s not healthy. I – ashamedly – play games like Social City on Facebook. It’s got to stop. I can’t do it anymore. That’s why I’m giving them both up. I’m not deleting the accounts. (I made that mistake with Twitter once before.) But for now, I’m stepping away. Now is the time for me to focus on being as creative and productive as I can.

If you @ me on Twitter, I probably won’t see it. If you direct message me on Twitter, make sure you include an email address otherwise I won’t be able to respond. Same goes for Facebook. Email, phone or IM will be your best bet to get in touch with me until I decide the time’s right for me to venture back onto either of those networks.

  1. Sadface. You’re one of my favorite people on Twitter. Why is everyone “quitting” social media these days? It’s ultra-sad.

    Anyway, shoot me an email whenever you want to go grab some lunch.

  2. Congrats on the venture. As you know, I just got back to it. Honestly, from a personal standpoint… kinda over rated (I know… lol wut?! coming from me). Sorry I couldn’t make it out to Refresh Lunch today!

  3. Well done Chris. I totally respect your decision on this. I must say that I feel like doing the same thing as of late (especially Facebook). I always find myself reading status updates and playing a silly game or something when I know damn good and well that I should be doing something more productive with my time. I look forward to your return though as well. Good luck sir.

    I was worried about you. I stopped seeing your Twitter updates and knew something had to be up. I’m glad all is well and that this was a planned absense. Good luck with everything and catch you when you ease back into things!
