You write about what you love. What interests you. What inspires you. What makes you happy. Or maybe you write just because you really love to write.
And if you’re on Tumblr, you follow people because you like them. Because they have a point of view. Because you may not have a single thing in common, but love looking at life through the eyes of someone else. Because you are completely invested in knowing how they are doing or what pair of shoes they bought or what they thought of the latest RH franchise reunion catastrophe.
You do all of this for you. Because it feels good to share and connect with other people.
But you don’t write for other people. And you shouldn’t. It’s your space to be wonderfully, uniquely, authentically you. Love it or hate it. Take it or leave it.
I am ALL about funny statuses on Facebook. Or updates on lives on Facebook. But I am EXTREMELY OVER the oversharing on Facebook. No one gives a flying fuck if you are at the grocery store buying extra scoop, wheat Tostitos. And even more, no one gives a flying fuck about the best shower you took post-birth of your child. (PS: YOU HAVE A CHILD. GET OFF FACEBOOK). And by far THE WORST… NO ONE GIVES A FLYING FUCK THAT YOU ARE SO MADLY IN LOVE WITH SOMEONE THAT YOU MUST WRITE STATUS UPDATES ABOUT IT EVERY TWO FUCKING HOURS OF THE FUCKING DAY.
'OMGEEEEE. I love my BOOO SO MUCH.'
Shut the fuck up. No one cares. (totally blocking your ass anyway)
