Yet Another Epic Gap in Writing
I was so sure that having WordPress on my phone would make me blog more. Sure,
it yielded a few neat photographs from "the field," but nothing really came of
it. Sad I guess, and I apologize, even though I'm not sure to whom I'm
apologizing since it's unlikely anyone stuck around when the entries ended.
I guess it comes down to having nothing interesting to say. I half-wrote a
social media post in the spirit of my epic Twitter farewell, but it never got
realized in a form I liked. Work has certainly provided me with a of insight
in to what I think of SM in general, and it comes down to "who cares?" I mean,
I know people do care of it wouldn't be an industry, but part of me can't get
past the fact that I think it's only important because we as a people say it
is. Think about it – why do you want to be friends with a company? Do you
think they're really following you back?
Maybe it's my inner nihilist coming out to play, but I feel the same way about
this blog to an extent – I like the idea that one day I'm going to look back
and be able to loosely piece together my life, but right now I'm questioning
the value in it.
On another topic altogether, I've started learning to code for iPhone and
Android. It's really funny to be learning about both of them at the same time,
but I think that's a series of posts better saved for their own entries.
