I’m already 15 minutes in to today’s 28 minutes and I’ve just deleted everything I’ve just written.
Not because I didn’t think it was good (although it was far from my finest piece of writing), but because on reading it back I realised it was far too negative. I know the idea is that we just publish, but in this case I felt that hitting publish was, on balance, likely to cause more harm that good. So it’s gone.
Instead let’s ponder the idea of online spaces.
I have (among other things)
A Facebook account
These can roughly be considered in a continuum from ‘professional’ spaces at the top to ‘personal’ spaces at the bottom.
In addition I have Delicious and Diigo accounts (although neither used much any more), a Vimeo and Youtube account and two accounts on Flickr, all of which are in various states of disrepair. I also have several other blogs and websites kicking around on various domains
The Linked In and Google + pages are effectively just ways of either viewing content from other people, or pushing content from my own blog out to others.
The two tumblr blogs are used for storing quotes or blog posts I have found interesting
Twitter is where most of the my online interaction takes place and my blog is where most of my ‘original’ extended stuff goes. Both of these are open to anyone to view online, and comment on should they so wish. This is really important to me, and something I may come back to later.
Facebook on the other hand is private to people that I know and I’m happy to call friends. I will sometime post links there from my Twitter or my Blog, but never the other way around.
So there we are, a quick tour of my online spaces. Too many? Too few? How about you?
