I believe that I have to practice what I teach.
Every once in a while, I will try something new and think- oh, that’s such a great idea! It will be fun and will help my business. So, I started a FACEBOOK account. Well, if you read this blog a lot, I am sure you know where this is going. Fun for others can turn into a bit of an obsession for me. It’s not that I was obsessed with Facebook- it’s that my brain found it stressful. I am sure you know what I mean. It was an experiment that I am glad I tried. It IS good for business to get myself out there so that I can connect with readers. and it IS a good idea to keep up to date with my writing friends and their projects.
I want to stay well- especially when it comes to internet use. Treat bipolar first is my motto and has been for over 10 years. Thus, I am closing my Facebook account! My dear friend Sherri- who has bipolar one- had to do the same thing. I need to use my energy for work, instead of spending time on the internet.
Have you had similar experiences? I would love to hear them!
