I have to admit, I find the possibilities of analysing what works for which account in terms of social media engagement engrossing. At first glance, there seems to be a lot of synergy between, say posting on Twitter and having a streaming schedule on Twitch, yeah?

In a very serious manner, you can not use the hashtag and expect ANYONE to see it.

This needs more research, I am sure, but to find the posts whch work, despite the hashtag should provide some insight into why practically everyone using the tag might as well not post at all or omit the tag itself.

It drives me nuts, to be honest

Alright, mass deletion is not something mastodon likes. Rate limiting on your own instance is a thing, it seems. Alright Alright Alright.

for all misfortuned #windows users, here is where to find your #product #activation #code (not explained in #microsoft forum, why would they?)

I'm in love with storage devices, mostly the read-only type of menory. The thing about them is, on the surface level, I can make it my own. Also, there's the design of them, with a clear data side or whatever you want to call it.

I went and got myself new horseshoe, on tumblr. I think I'll have it redirect to a subdomain, because I love that I can do that.

I'm also kicking around the idea of using in some capacity or other.

I'll let that one stew for a bit until I figure that out.

Nostalgia is always happening. It's mostly grotesque.

Signed up on two ancient forums. Ancient and dying, so of course they run phpbb, which means that you have to write the mods when you want your account deleted. Which I did and did do.

How do these things even exist anymore..

I did not not enjoy finding new forums to try out. I like how forums work.

I'm getting back into more serious graphic design things. Going to look for related things on irc and stack. It's missing from my life :(

Essentially, I believe that social media as a whole is carried by a generation of people who think that they should matter to you, because they have decided to be famous.

Where does that leave you?

I propose calling this "trickle-down follower capital" and moving on to something more interesting. Like making friends again.

Each social media platform is carried by a single generation of people, I think. Overall, I think that social media is a dated concept. What if you're not comfortable with sharing your thoughts? What if you already have a job and don't see a point in being your own social media manager? I see all these people who promote their content, and all they do is compete with everyone else on the same platform, not just with the people and brands who are their competitors.

Wait why does this work so well?

I can actually focus on it rather than having g to reread like 3 times.

There was a lot of cleaning and freeing up spaces going on in my tiny witch's house today, it seems.

As a free bonus, DSL is currently dead. I think I'll take what is offered and read.

I was lacking motivation and drive lately, but seeing what insane finished pieces two art direction master students brought as entries to the Art Director's Club this year changed that.

I need to finish my bachelor's degree, so that I can move on towards art direction. Needless to explain, they're from the same alma mater as me, so that helps.

What motivated you recently, o reader mine?

Cleaned up my workspace after a mindfulness seminar provided by my alma mater. It's a lot less cluttered now than it was before. I feel the same way about myself
