I always enjoy your posts. Thank you.

As a writer who depends on social media to bring readers to my Substack, I'm conflicted. I loathe FB, Twitter, IG, etc. but a substantial amount of my livelihood his tied into those machines. It's a bad arrangement but unavoidable.

Do I spend 'time' on those networks, as I did in the past (posting family photos, getting into discussion meltdowns with imbeciles?) No. But I still have accounts there.

I'd love to read your take on this theme in one of your upcoming posts.

I feel like social media was a lot more palatable when we had to sit down to use it. Doesn't mean we weren't on there a lot; we were. But there was something more..... or rather, *less* frenetic about it.
