So recently, I stopped posting original content on social media. This was prompted by a whole bunch of stuff (that foolish ass election, this foolish ass administration, etc). But I also found myself feeling like I wanted to find a way to build content about myself, my work and my thoughts without working in the digital sharecropping fields for Massa Zuckerberg.
I realized "Yo...I'm giving all of my content to these people. They are getting filthy rich and then they use both their power and wealth to really screw the people who build their content." (This trash ass Tax Plan, Net Neutrality...how much they make off them Russia Ads though?)
So...I've decided to build my content here.
This move also forces me to be more specific and clear about what I want to say and how I want to say it. Posting here requires me to have some restraint and not just post impulsively about every little thing that happens and, as Lasandra from Kanye's Workout Plan would put it, what's most importantly, I draw people to my website instead of my Facebook page.
Don't worry, I'll like your pictures and witty Facebook status (though...for real...find a way to make that wit work for you mama. Some of y'all brilliant and you just casting pulls before swine) and occasionally post about productions or readings coming up...but other than that I'm kinda out. If you wanna know how I'm doing, call, text, or check this blog out.
