So after reading a post by Christa Desir at her blog about documenting our lives, it got me thinking.
Do we reveal too much? Too little? Okay, that’s probably not the case most of the time, but it can be hard to find the balance between getting your name out there and getting too much out there. Now this is my take from Christa’s post: that maybe instead of focusing on promotion, we should focus on connecting.
Which is a great point.
The thing I worry about is sometimes I feel like I’m not connecting. Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely not promoting, since I have nothing to promote, but it seems like I’m not doing enough on the other side.I just noticed something fairly recently. Like within the last few months. A lot of people Favorite and/or Like FB comments, Tweets and Instagram posts.
And I don’t do much favoriting or liking. Or what feels like like enough. To me, favoriting things is like acknowledging that you’ve seen it. And by not doing that, it’s like you’re not responding.
And then I feel bad I’m not responding even though I do like what was posted.
Am I the only one like this? Am I being to hard on myself?
And if you’re one that always favorites/likes stuff a lot, do you feel neglected if people don’t do that to you?
I’m just curious about what others think of this whole favoriting thing. If you even pay attention.
