I usually take off the last two weeks of the year, but this year I’m starting a little earlier with my social-media retreat/cleanse/void/break. I have no idea what truly constitutes “social media” these days. I know Instagram is “social,” but I use it mostly as a broadcast stream for short essays accompanying an image — sure, I look at other people’s images, too, and like/comment on occasion, but aside from the “like” aspect, it doesn’t feel all that different from commenting on someone’s blog post. Anyhow, for the most part I mean I won’t be on Twitter or Facebook.
See you on the other side.
