That brief, fairly-well supported (I thought) piece I wrote last week on forming a more perfect union?
Facebook didn’t want it. In fact, Facebook seems to think my blog is simply not OK for their platform. And Instagram (owned by Facebook) seems to not want me at all.
Hmm, both FB and IG are a big NOPE on me. Tried sharing the same post I shared in my last tweet before and after I moved to a secure server (https://t.co/9mde7AuY8Q)
Does this make me a member of the intellectual dark web or do I need more followers for that? #IDW #officialIDW pic.twitter.com/q4gpJMLaTJ

This seems like a win. I mean, yeah, Facebook is a good place to share, since everybody’s there, but I’d really checked out of Facebook for the past six months, and now, other than a couple of groups I’m involved in, I suppose there’s not really a reason to go back.
And I was already finding Instagram sucking up too much time so I’d deleted it from my phone (which made it really hard to post), so I guess that’s no longer a concern.
While I do have something planned in this space next week, you may see a bit of a dropoff. You may not, but I have a couple of other writing projects I’m excited about. Hopefully they’ll see the light of day, but the risk of moving off my own publishing platform is that maybe they won’t. Onward.
