If you know me well, you know how much of a love/hate relationship I have with social media. A while ago my husband and I both deactivated our accounts. He’s still off of social media and has actually permanently deleted it. But after 6 months I decided to get back on primarily because of this blog.
But something very amazing happened during those 6 months of no social media and I am really missing it. Let’s be honest, social media has a lot of benefits. It can be so great and useful to keep in touch with friends and family. I recently was finally able to reconnect with my best friend from grade school, somehow during our college days we lost touch. Without Facebook, reconnecting would not have been so easily possible.
It can also be a good tool to publicize your own unique creativity, whether that be a blog, photography, or whatever you’re into. But while it has some great benefits, it has so many downsides. And I’m starting to rethink it again.
