When it comes to social media, I’m all about the “future people tab.” I don’t even care what kind of picture you’re posting, I still want you to know that you’re looking at me. I don’t care what you’re wearing, I still want to know that I’ll see you on the other side.
In a future where you dont have to use the internet to do a lot of your socializing, it’s easy to forget that the internet exists for things like that. You can always post a picture of yourself, but if you dont like the picture, or if someone takes it and makes a lot of fun of you, it’s best to just start using a lot of social media.
You can, of course, post a picture of yourself but if a bunch of people are taking it and making fun of it, it might be best to just stop being the internet’s best friend and just stick to your old habit of just posting a picture.
I have a post from a couple of years ago that had a picture of myself and a bunch of other people posting stuff about my past that I thought was pretty funny. People were getting so annoyed with my old post that they went so far as to call me a’reactionary’ on the internet. I was so mad at myself for having that old post removed that I didn’t even reply to it.
I like to think of myself as a bit of a stickler for good taste, but sometimes the internet is so full of crap it’s hard to tell if it’s “crap” or just bad. I think the problem is when you start to put too much effort into a post. You start to forget that you are the internet, just another group of people posting stuff. I also think the problem is when you put so much effort into a post that you forget it’s that post.
It’s a bit of a tricky thing to get right. The internet is the most amazing thing since sliced bread, but so much of it is so broken that it can be hard to tell if its broken or just crappy.
I don’t always agree with my fellow internet denizens, but I’m going to say that many of the pieces I’ve written about in the past have been crappy posts. I think I’ve often been wrong, and I’m going to say that the internet is the best thing since sliced bread, but I also think its a lot easier to get right when you have to put a ton of effort into your posts.
The internet is good for posting and sharing, but it is also a place for terrible posts. A lot of the posts that are crappy are because the person who posted them hasn’t put in the work to make himself a better post. For instance, I was going to start a thread about a crappy thread I wrote a while back, but I saw that the person who put it together didn’t put in the work. So I just decided to delete the thread.
As I write these words I know I will be deleting a lot more posts, but I also know that when I stop I will still have tons of crappy ones to deal with. I am just hoping that I dont get caught up in the post purge too much.
The person who made the thread hasnt been a good poster either. I think it’s because he’s not a good writer. He really doesn’t seem to care to put in the time to make himself a better post. He is just so lazy that he doesn’t even bother.
