What is this?

I’ve always had an on again-off again relationship with social media, and finally decided to call it quits in 2018/19. I tried all the usual stuff… not commenting, not liking, not looking… none of it really worked. So I deleted my accounts. All of them.

So… doesn’t this just replace that?

Well, yes. Yes it does. Social Media is about advertising one’s self, so I guess that’s definitely what I’m setting out to do here.

Except there’s none of the bullshit. No ads. No notifications telling me when someone else has posted something, or reminding me to spend more time on the platform. No pressure to compare myself to anybody else.

I’m probably going to refer to my mental health a lot, because keeping it under control is a huge part of my life. At least, it has been lately. I’ve worked hard at it, with a lot of ups and downs. If I can give someone an insight into what it takes to be me, and it helps them, then I’m happy.

And no, I’m not looking for anybody to tell me how “brave” I’ve been.

At the moment I’m in a good, stable, place and I don’t plan to put myself in any situations that will change that. I’m actually hoping that I can move on from my mental health and start to live life again. So maybe there will be a bit of that on here too.

I guess you could say I don’t really know what I want to get out of having my own website, it just feels like a good thing to do right now, so I’m just going to get on with it.

If it disappears randomly, sorry not sorry.
