On my previous blog, “Where are we Going?” I talked about dropping out for a while and not spending time “doing social media”. A facebook friend Tamara Ann Burgh wrote, “how did you feel dropping out? Relieved? Negligent? Productive artistically? How do you feel about coming back?”. These are great questions,Tamara,and I did feel relieved. The pressure of doing social media is getting almost too much. As far as being productive artistically, that is more about the discipline of being in the studio doing something most days. Otherwise, anything and everything can throw you off your stride.
I question the word “social” in media because I’m of the opinion that a phone call can reveal more about a person than a few sentences in twitter and facebook. The media is coming at us so fast you really have to discern where you want to spend your time. It’s easy to write a few words and think that is doing your marketing for you. I would like to know how everyone else is doing and if the “social media” is doing it’s job? Please comment.
