Social media gave many us this crazy idea that we could be famous… or, at least sub-culturally famous.
It offered many of us the opportunity to expand our “platforms” and our influence globally, beyond our own small geography.
I’ll admit that I entertained this idea and even thought that I could “make it work” for me. I never really gave a thought about what the “cost” might actually be.
Now that I’m moving in the other direction I can see a lot of this more clearly and I feel like I’m seeing it for what it is: It’s just not worth the cost. Full stop.
