    You should know me better than that by now, @lobster...
    I am sooooo not the thinking type.
    Least of all, the overthinker type.
    My cup is only full of tea, but empty of anything else...

    And by the way, I have closed a page I had on FB and a parallel account because I have no extra time to dedicate to media and I have been bombarded with soooo many messages from FB to wheedle me back that, honestly, I would not undergo closing an account again unless it were strictly necessary.

    I have not visited twitter in ages, but since I did not close the account, nobody breathes down my neck about it.

    Feeling great! Social media Free! Very focused. Very clear. Very calm.

    Well my month is up! I really felt a difference not using social media for the month of February. I feel much clearer, calm and focused. As I deleted my accounts I would have to go to the effort of setting up brand new accounts if I wanted them. I'm not feeling like I want to do that, at this point in time. 💚💚💚

  • After using "the unholy trinity" of facebook, twitter and instagram for a good number of months I have decided that there is no middle path with me when it comes to use of social media. I end up overusing it and it becomes habitual. I know the middle road is the path to strive for and I admire all those who can use social media sparingly and effectively. I am not here to bash social media. I am here to finally realise like anyone who uses something addictively , I need abstinence from it. Facebook, twitter and instagram accounts have been deleted permanently. I can already feel the unburdening and lightness.....

    Yeah, a hashtag (for reasons completely unknown to me!) creates a large bold font.

    I use it to attract attention if I need to make a Mod-announcement...!

    Got it...?!

    :D

    There should be an ‘escape character’ that lets you just print a hashtag though
