A Sense of MysteryMonday, March 28, 2016
In this day and age, social media has definitely become a focal point in a lot of people's lives, and it's getting to the point where I just see too much. You know, more than one really needs to know. I can't help but feel people invest too much time exposing too much of themselves and their personal lives online. Don't get me wrong, I do love to watch a good old vlog (usually along the lines of travel), a funny Snapchat story, or read a deep meaningful blog post, but it all ends there really.
Being someone who blogs, having a presence on social media platforms plays a big part in helping me get my content out there for people to see, and if they like, hopefully stick around for more. They are also great for connecting and communicating with like-minded people, and getting my daily dose of laughing fits in, and that's about it! However, whilst always being quite selective with what I do tend to share socially whether it be on Twitter or Instagram, these days I can't help but sometimes feel the pressure to share more than I would normally want to! It almost feels like it is mandatory to share more as a blogger so that followers/readers stay interested, but I refuse to fall into that trap! Saying that, I don't think I ever will share more than I need to, as I quite like the sense of mystery behind doing so. For me it's intriguing. What are your thoughts on the way and how much information is shared on social media these days?
There really is no harm in keeping a majority of your life private, even if you have a big online presence. There are many ways to come across as relatable to an audience without sharing everything. Leave a little to the imagination, as a little mystery never hurt nobody ...
Also, how ace is this Bogjiko leather biker jacket? In love with its worn and rusty look.
