Darlings, please understand something… I don’t make regular blog and social media posts. That doesn’t mean I’m idle.
I consciously try to savor my life and work, immersing myself in the moment. My thoughts rarely turn toward documenting my experiences and thoughts for the masses. Once the moment has passed and I’ve relished its juicy goodness, I’m off to the next thing.
Here’s my confession: The pressure to regularly report my activities and thoughts online makes me want to dig in my heels like a petulant child. Will adding more memes, cleavage pics, and links to the digital clutter on social media really bring new friends to the Parlor who wouldn’t have found me otherwise?
Writing posts of value takes time, thought, and effort. I find myself drawn instead to spending that time with other human beings, or in quiet reverie, or playing, or learning, or planning, or—best yet—immersed in a new experience or adventure. Because that’s what life’s about.
Is this lack of consistent posting bad for marketing? Conventional Wisdom says so—but I’ve found CV to be an untrustworthy advisor. Is it self-indulgent, or even lazy? Perhaps. I do have things of value to share. But I’m more driven to maximize the time I spend living life and making a personal difference to others.
Sometimes I am inspired to post. When I feel like it. When I have something to say. Sometimes even in flurries. But not on a schedule.
Even if I’m quiet online, I’m here in real life. Maybe you should be, too. Schedule an appointment with me, in person or by phone, and create a new life-enriching experience of your own.
