Where has the year gone? Sheesh, its the 21st of January already and this is my first post of the year.
I must be honest, one of the reasons for the sluggish start to BiPolar Etcetera is because these days I'm so busy posting on other blogs/networks. Here's what I've got to maintain:
- 2 fully fledged blogs
- 3 twitter accounts
- 2 flickr accounts
- 2 websites
- ...and about half a dozen others.
I've given a lot of thought to this over the years. And my conclusion is that, no, the reason I split my "message" up into different accounts and channels is not about me - its about my audience. In fact, it's out of respect to my audience. The vast majority of readers that come to this blog are people with some interest in BiPolar. And it is for that reason I dont blast them with my posts about Search Engine Optimisation and photography. I post that stuff where people that are interested in that stuff come.
In the same vein I post pics regularly to two different Flickr accounts. One for my "serious photos" and one for my hugely manipulated work. A lot of serious photographers follow my Flickr stream, and they dont neccessarily want to be plastered with my more avantgarde photoshop experiments. Ditto Twitter. Ditto. Ditto. Ditto.
Trust me, I would love to be some major celebrity with millions of followers devouring every morsel I throw out there about my life, whether it be on SEO, BiPolar, photogrpahy, or what I ate for lunch. It would be a heck of a lot easier. But at the end of the day it's you guys that I respect...
