I’m Attempting to Limit Social Media

Earlier this year, I launched my own social network after using an alternative social network for several months.

The experience helped me slow my mainstream social media use and experience an advertising and political news free environment.

This month I shutdown my social network to save money. But I’m considering reopening a variant of it again later. For now I’m focusing my attention on my blog which has been neglected for quite awhile.

Kara sent me some more photos that she took of me while in Austin. A blog isn’t as quick and easy to post as a Tweet, but I’m exploring a transition to posting here.

I feel like a blog requires lots of proofreading and a considerable content length. Perhaps this isn’t the case.

I enjoy posting photos, but not always writing about them.

Earlier I wanted to post this photo of my steak at Outback, but it feels weird just to post a photo of a steak. I still need a title for it. Microblogging is better and Instagram is better still when I just want to post a photo.

Since I’m blogging, I might as well mention the Cowboys surprise victory over the Patriots. I started watching at the end of the game. I was really worried the Cowboys would lose, but I had hope deep down that they would turn it around for a win. It was a very close game.

I have respect for both teams, but the Cowboys are my home team. I don’t live in Dallas, but pretty much everyone in San Antonio is a Cowboys fan. Unless they’re weird and favor the Texans over the Cowboys. I guess that’s fair if they do, but whatever.

The play that won the game reminded me of Drew Brees’ Alamo Bowl pass when he was in college. I don’t watch football enough to confirm if it was a similar or not, but it did remind me of it. I imagine certain plays are so good, they’ll almost work every time you need them too; assuming you can catch the ball.

I hope the Dallas Cowboys win the Super Bowl. If they keep their winning streak up, I might actually start watching. Apparently, I have a lot to catch up on!
