Doomscrolling

So I recently found myself repeatedly “doomscrolling” over the past few months. Even when it wasn’t particularly just negative posts, tweets, etc., I would just keep scrolling down for the next high or low. After checking my engagement analytics numbers I found that anything I am doing on Twitter or Facebook isn’t doing anything for me marketing-wise. When I added up those two factors it seems that both are a waste of my time, and effort. I still enjoy Instagram since it is a very passive app for me to use, and I enjoy sharing my toys, pets, and art.

While I am not deleting my accounts, I am avoiding them for the sake of my mental health and my dwindling time left on this plane of existence. My blog posts will be shared on those sites still, along with Tumblr and LinkedIn… those are going to be a Fire and Forget post. You can contact me via my recently reactivated contact form, Instagram, or just directly mail me at doc@doctor-multiverse.com

It’s not been easy to avoid the time sink sites, but it’s also been nice. I have more time to art and play with my website. After purging the big two from my life, I may try to prune a few more that don’t benefit my endeavors.
