I’ve signed up for nearly every social network thingy that I’ve ever come across since I entered the wide world of the internet back decades ago… I’ve blogged in a countless number of mediums, using tons of different services, and have had multiple accounts using those services as well.
It was time to start over. Really start over.
And the great thing was that it hasn’t been that difficult of a decision! It’s been a bit cathartic, perhaps. I’ve started a new Digg account, a new Del.icio.us account, a new Pownce, Technorati, a new Blog with a new look for heaven’s sake. Now, I’ve kept the old Facebook and LinkedIn… but of the rest, entirely new.
And I haven’t even started filling them in yet…
And what’s even more crazy is that I’ve also cleaned up house a bit as well in this process. Social media fatigue… that’s what had gotten me. Too many, too fast, too hard to keep up with them all. Choose a few, I thought… and stick with ’em.
So, that’s what I’ve done.
Now, for some, I can imagine this would be entirely impossible. It would be like throwing away old friends (and it sure did feel that way for a few of them)… but, it is what it is. Sometimes you’ve gotta start fresh. For the better.
So here’s to some new beginnings.
