MAKING PEACE WITH SMARTPHONES & SOCIAL MEDIA
The more I read about the evils of social media, the more I know that I need to make for the digital door. There isn’t one of these apps that works to monetize your data. I’m addicted, I have been doing my best to walk away for over ten years, but I keep getting sucked back into their trap. I don’t want to use WhatsApp or Facebook or Twitter, or any Google produced apps and resources.

Sceptics who talk up ‘false positives’ are engaging in wishful thinking. Read the full article by Tom Chivers here.

/fuck yeah_this looks way better_!
So, another evolution to this website/blog/journal_thing. The post number_title/thingy will now be a tag, and I’ll update the /url_slug with it too. I’m not sure what I hope to achieve by doing this? Maybe it is all about aesthetics? Anyhoo, I’m now limiting my social media and smartphone use to just a couple of times per day. I check once in the morning, and then once again in the evening before I log off the tech for the day. I feel lighter, somehow?!
I’m playing with the format for this blog again.
I’m thinking about losing the post title (sequential-numeric), and sticking it in the tags section instead. I think it might look a bit better?
