I’m just going to expand on this here because, that’s what a blog is for and idk why I default to Twitter anyway.
I have a problem where I know my thoughts aren’t unique but I feel compelled to share them anyway.
I see something interesting and want to make a conversation around it, but nobody is ever interested.
I think I’m smart and funny and
usually have something valuable to contribute but I feel like I’m stupid for thinking that because, if it were true people would engage with me.
I have no reach and I’m always disappointed when someone who does says something I already said, or makes a point I already made, and people engage with them. Because, then it’s not that I say things people don’t care about, it’s that I’m not someone people care about, so they don’t care to engage.
Then I feel stupider for thinking there is any reason whatsoever for people to care about what I have to say. It’s like a loop: I post something, nobody sees it or they ignore it, I delete it or retweet/reblog it with added commentary as if someone had replied, I feel stupid, rinse, repeat.
The upside to this garbage post is no one will read it.
