Blogging has not been my top priority lately. It is funny the way things change when you start graduate school. I have found myself amidst the chaos of an MFA program, and, while I write regularly, this blog has taken a back seat.
I put my wordpress site on private and I deactivated my Facebook account. It felt so good and healthy and distant from a world of people I sometimes simply don’t understand. I thought distance is the key. I don’t need to be attached to news feeds and followers and likes in order to be a good writer. Right?
Well, I have tried this strategy for one whole semester. That is 4 months. And it did feel good. I was happy without social media in my life. And then people started telling me, if I ever wanted to get work as a writer, social media will always be my friend. They told me that branding myself is the best thing I can do for myself.
As an Aries and therefore a doer, I have created my own website. On this website, is a blog. And so if you have enjoyed Simmons View, then you can now find me here I have given in to the world of branding millennials and find it kind of addicting. Here goes nothing into a whole new world of taking myself more seriously as a writer and doing shit about it.
