Admittedly, I have been a “Twitter person”.
I have always loved the concept of microblogging, and the content limit of up to 280 characters for a tweet has really resonated with my penchant for haiku.
I have met many of the crucial partners in my rakugo journey through this SNS platform, too. I really hold them dear, and they have become some of my best virtual and real friends.
It became even better when a certain president of a certain country (finally) got kicked out.
However, I have to say I am not too sure if I am still on the same wavelength with this platform after its takeover by the… richest person in the world.
Some of the Twitter users have already started emigrating elsewhere like that one that sounds like a dinosaur.
I have considered moving myself, but where to?
After some thought, I’ve realised I don’t like other alternatives, either.
Yet, I need some online presence for my work.
Is there a way to stay connected with people without relying on a SNS?
How about this blog?
Sure, my posts are kept on the wordpress.com server, but at least I don’t get unwanted posts that affect my mental well-being…
My art is very, very niche, so if this blog becomes the only space you can connect and interact with me, those who (really) want to get hold of me will probably visit here? Or not?
So… here’s my little experiment to see if this blog can act like a SNS.
For the rest of 2022, I have decided to post things only on this space and see what will happen!
Time will tell!
