Well here I am again! Howdy!
I realised I was once more in blue in time for Tardis Tuesday, so quickly got Mr Actor to snap a couple of quick poses.
Before I get into that, I've gone and done something crazy...I deactivated my Facebook account...da da dah! (Cue spooky music.)
I realised I was spending too much time being sucked down the rabbit holes of other people's making. And then being depressed by their news driven info and the amount of time wasted. I also would put personal information out there when at a low which I would regret later, even though I was careful of my audience.
I resisted leaving for a while because I was in touch with old friends through this medium. But really I would get a sporadic like of a post but no real interaction. So it was spurious contact. I haven't missed the contact that much and hopefully will connect up with friends properly i.e. email, phone or cafe.
I've noticed how I feel more open to my physical friendships and to engaging in longer deeper ways. I also have more head space to engage with my blogger friends.
Online relating is not all equal I've discovered. Most of it is fast paced and tenuous. It feels more substantial than it is. Someone hitting a like button may have never really looked or read the substance within. Things move on quickly and it is easy to miss your target audience.
Whereas Pinterest and blogging are permanent sites you can return to again and again and engage deeply with the content and the people creating it. Blogging also brings out the creative spark where people create original content rather than just sharing the same news around and around.
I enjoy Instagram for its instant visual impact where I post funny pictures of faces I see in things and promote my blog. I like its cross promotion by tags where you can reach anyone. I have made interesting artistic connections this way.
I also use Google+ for connecting to like minded groups, but my personal page gets minimal response.
So FB is my first casualty. It remains to be seen if the others follow!
Alright enough news. Now to the clothes.
So today for your delectation we have an overgrown haircut, with a felted moth eaten vest of Bushy's I cut down (cut the bands off). So warmmmmm!
Under that is my handmade dress/tunic made from Indian fabric courtesy of a friend.
Under that is my silk dressing gown I made into a tunic by sewing the front together...genius!
The top layer has pockets...can you tell? :-D
And under it all are the secret pettipants, with my lovely Black Milk tights and hard working Rockports.
