I think I broke my Facebook. I deleted all of my past posts and now nobody sees the new ones… do doubt due to algorithms that make it impossible to appear in the “feeds” of others unless you have a critical mass of past likes. Kind of like publishing, I guess. You have to be a big deal to be a big deal.
But do I want to trust my public persona to algorithms anyway? Deep down inside, even in the age of Kardashians, I kind of think that a fame based on being shoved in people’s faces is not the same as having, for lack of better word, a reputation. Some desperate, lonely part of me wants people to seek me out, to find me on the bookshelf, to enter my URL, at the very least to “subscribe” to my posts via email.
So maybe this is for the best. To the five people who see this post because they chose to see it, I thank you for stopping by.
