So I’m turning 30 at the end of the month. Which demands at least a little ‘life re-evaluation’. There are a lot of things I wanted to accomplish by this point in my life that I haven’t (having something published… being done having children… we haven’t even STARTED on that last one), but there have still been a lot of milestones met (we have a house, and that mortgage is our ONLY debt, we’re living on one income and still having a little leftover each month).
Most of all, though, I’m looking at the things in my life that make me feel angry, or helpless, or that are just wasting my time. Some of them are things I can’t do anything about – I’m just going to have to roll with the punches. Others are things I can change. It’s just making up my mind to do so.
One of the things I’ve kept wavering on is Twitter. I was never really interested in Twitter, I only joined it because it was ‘what a writer should do for networking’, essentially, but I just… don’t like it. I can’t connect with people that way – when I do interact with people, it’s the same handful of people over and over. And I can communicate with those same people elsewhere – on blogs, on Facebook, through email, etc.
So, all of that to say… I think I’m finally going to take the plunge and delete my Twitter account.
I thought, for a while, that I might just keep it around to be able to participate in Twitter pitch events, but at this point, I’m not going to have anything ready to pitch again for probably another year. And I don’t want to keep hanging on to a stagnant social media account just for that.
So… I guess, for all my Twitter followers, this is your notice. If you need another way to get hold of me besides that, you can find me on Facebook, tsu, here on the blog, you can email me (rebekah dot loper at gmail), or you can also find me on Instagram (which I have been on for about a month now and am enjoying far more than I ever enjoyed Twitter).
And now, I am going back on my self-imposed sorta-hiatus. Hope you’re all doing well!
