  1. A very insightful post and video. I only got interested in social media when I started writing my blog and needed to connect with a larger group of people to promote the blog. I wasn’t even on Twitter before I started blogging. But now sometimes I can’t focus on my actual friends and conversations with them because of my social media activities. I have to force myself to leave the house and interact with real people every day otherwise I would just be writing all day, which I love but is very solitary, and interacting with people on social media. I’m supposed to visit a friend tonight – I must make sure it happens!
