I woke up this morning frustrated that I simply haven’t been writing across my various sites. In theory I am a “writer”, but I haven’t been writing! And as I wrote in My 3 Words for 2018: “because if I don't write... the stories build up inside of me until they want to explode like a pressure cooker without a relief valve. Writing is my relief valve. I need to do it.”
So I said to myself- I know, I will impose a new rule on myself... no social media usage until I publish something new! A blog post, a podcast episode (such as my The Dan York Report short audio segments), an article on some site (ex CircleID), a longer update on a social site... something.... anything.... BEFORE I get sucked into the vortex of social media updates.
And I will start with a blog post like this one...
I first started reading Dan York back when Movable Type was all the rage and I've been listening to him from the time Public Relations professionals met up for shrimp on the barbie while sharing ideas good enough For Immediate Release. It's refreshing to hear the human voice of disruptive conversations resonating so clearly in my newsfeeds and in my earbuds.
