So … welcome back! Wow, I’m rocking the blogging thing after being away for so long, aren’t I? Whoo, go me …
But seriously, we’ve all gotta talk.
So, the world of #FP and #200WT has always been small but mighty, right? And we have the most amazing community of people who have been around from Day 1, who stuck it out with us through some pretty heavy times and we could not be more thankful for that.
But now, with the change in #Friday Phrases and #200WT and #MusaeMosaic and all the things that happens … we are really stretching ourselves thin here. And by we, I actually mean lil’ old me, @LoonyMoonyLara.
As you know, @AdeleSGray is battling a lot of health situations, and still being the warrior she is to get our family going in the world. And that is a huge mission, in itself, so the beautiful world we have online, it’s on me for now.
And I love that. I love being trusted with the confidence, with the friendship of so many people.
But concentrating so many efforts on so many places, it takes a toll. I end up sleeping very little at night, just worrying about the tweets I have to send, and things I’ll have to do … quality of life is very much lessened by worrying about being in so many places at once. And that’s exactly my problem.
Musae Mosaic is going to help with this problem a lot, in that #FridayPhrases and #200WT are going to be in the same place, and I don’t need to bounce between blogs so much.
A problem, however, still resides with the Twitters.
We cannot afford an automater, or one with a premium plan that best suits our purpose, so we cannot keep things going on four different Twitter accounts at the same time, if you follow me.
And we do all of our interacting there! All of it, we just go and we talk to people and were have an amazing time, right? It’s the magic behind #FP, it’s so wonderfully personal!
I just don’t have enough hands, enough space in my head for so many things.
So that why we’re considering deleting the #200WT twitter account, as the blog is already defunct and making way for Musae Mosaic.
More than that, it seems strange to us to have a Twitter for #FP and not one for #200WT, when they will both still carry on as they’ve always done, but not on an independent website.
At the same time, %90 of our community is on @FridayPhrases and we can’t just start a new twitter to place our efforts … the time that takes …
So you see the dilemma, right?
Now there is a solution that I’m pretty sure I’m going to do and this long winded post is, in a way, just a little preparation for that.
I propose that we keep the #FridayPhrases twitter account for its exact purpose. Hosting #FP every week and interacting with the community. But amalgamating it with #200WT, #S4S, Musae Mosaic and everything else…
In fact, renaming the entire #FridayPhrases account, Musae Mosaic. To concentrate all efforts in one place rather than four, and getting absolutely nowhere at all …
Now I know that after all this time, it’ll be another weird adjustment … but let’s just keep inviting folks to everything they could possibly want in one place, yeah? Make a huge community and welcome all in with open arms. If I can make that happen, you have my vow that everything there will always, always be personally written by me. Every tweet, every favorite, every reply. Not another faceless bot behind a façade …
So what do you say?
