It was great! Definitely the right choice.
A month ago I put myself on a Twitter lockout for a month. I made the right choice.
Technically, the hiatus ended yesterday, but I don’t think I’m going back to using it the way I did before. I’m not exactly sure what my new relationship with social media will look like, but I’ve pretty much shut down all avenues for doomscrolling.
I like blogging. Getting back into the regular flow of keeping this blog updated brings me a sense of satisfaction and joy that I never get on any of the social media platforms.
For the next month I’ll try posting to Twitter (including linking to these blog posts), but not scrolling through the feed. Maybe that’s the solution I’m looking for.
