Social anxiety

It’s coincidental, I suppose, that I started becoming uneasy about social media and publishing platforms around the time of my daughter’s birth.

Perhaps it’s that I generally tune out from the internet when I’m not working 9-5. She was born shortly before Christmas and I didn’t go back to work until mid January.

I think it was Ezra Klein who pointed out that when you disengage with Twitter for 10 minutes you feel as though you’ve missed everything, but after 10 days you feel as though you’ve missed nothing.

Writing feels like a much better investment these days. I’ll probably go back to doing this.
