May 29 2020 Daily Proof of Life Post

7:30 am EEST (GMT+3). This is the May 29 2020 daily proof of life post. I’ve been posting these every morning on Twitter, but I’m currently backing away from that hellsite. There’s no rant. We all know it’s a drain on productivity and mental health. Bottom line, I’m going to add a short post here every morning instead as I’m drinking my coffee and journaling. It beats looking at the news.

The main reason I’m there is because it’s the only way to remain in touch with a few friends. They won’t use email. They don’t read this blog. For some reason I’m still compelled to go to them, even though they won’t make any effort to come to me. Somehow I think those friends are going to end up on the same scrapheap as the people I lost forever when I quit Facebook.

A secondary reason to hang onto Twitter is as a means of syndicating these blog posts. It doesn’t draw  lot of traffic here, but once in a while something will blow up. Every year it gets harder to reach people through the written word, so every little bit helps.

  • If you get anything out of these blog posts, consider buying me a coffee. You can also purchase one of my books or zines from Gumroad or DriveThruRPG.
  • I check all email and Twitter DMs, personal and professional, three times once a day. I respond  as time allows; if it requires some thought or research on my part, it will take me longer.
  • I am actively avoiding news and social media to focus on writing. Please take your information from reliable sources and certified experts, not the Mad Carrot and its puerile cultists.

I can understand entirely. Twitter contains some profoundly unpleasant people, the sort who believe that if you happen to hold an opinion one iota different from theirs, it’s quite OK to harass and abuse you. I don’t want to be in the company of nasty abusive people who think that deliberately setting out to hurt another person is an acceptable way to behave.

They don’t even see the irony of such behaviour when they have chosen to attack someone because they believe that the individual in question has said something that’s unpleasant or harmful… even when by accident or through ignorance.

You could laugh… but I’d just rather be someplace else from them.
