I can't even blame social media, I have always done it and often at the most inopportune moments with the most inappropriate people!
Social media has merely allowed me to do it more.....
It seems like if I can't photograph it, tweet it or Fb it maybe it isn't worth doing. Once I was a person in Pelton who worked alone, went home alone and socialised alone( an oxymoron if I ever heard one). My views had few people to bounce off and meant not a great deal to anyone.
Now I FEEL my views and opinions reach someone.
Now there is the crux of the matter.
Oh hang on a minute there's another thing.
Mmm will have to mull this one over.
Am I Petnanny Supernanny or Caroline/ Petnanny? Pah who cares all I know is what I value in life is what I need to value on Facebook. So I am having a spectacular clear out( oh lordy I can feel a head between my knees moment, fanning my clammy brow), a good tidy up and a major cull.
I once had a stalker.
He never hurt me.
Yet it shook my little world.
I also had an imposter.
She never managed to hurt me
Yet it shook my little world
I have a lurker ( or ten hehe)
I have no idea if they will hurt me
I can't let it shake my world
Maybe I am stroking my ego by making my Facebook profile a little 'we like Petnanny club'.
My next plan is to have time away from technology. Gulp
Did I mention my addictive personality?
I am going to take my last blog seriously and remember my life needs attention too not sharing always with half a mind on my technology fix.
To acknowledge why I use it:
Tami Simon, of Sounds True, made some insightful observations about her instinct to pull out a piece of technology. Others from the panel chimed in, creating this list:
- For stimulation
- For confirmation of importance (as in, I got so many emails, likes, comments I must be important!)
- To connect with other people
- To have something to do when anxiety creeps in
- To find an escape from the rawness of an experience or to feel in control
- time to be me
Will I stop sharing? Not a blooming chance.
