I’m Taking a Social Media Hiatus in December

I got inspired by this decision after seeing Faith Schaffer on Instagram. This badass artist takes time off at the end of the year to plan projects for the next year. That, in turn, is inspiring me to do the same.

So, for December, I’m taking a break from Instagram, YouTube, TikTok, Tumblr, and Twitter. I won’t be posting anything new on those platforms during the last month of the year. (Yes, that means no live streams, too). I’m also taking a break from posting new blog posts here on this site. Then, I’ll be back in January 2022.

I have SO many ideas for next year! And I want to plan out how to make them happen.

Webcomics like The Legend of Azu-Mi and Puzzlespell will still update. And I will still be posting comics-in-progress on Ko-Fi. Also, the December Sticker of the Month will still happen. Plus, the email newsletter will only send out once a week on Fridays.

All that’s changing is that I’m pausing social media updates and blog posts. That way, I can make new work and plan for 2022.

I’ll post a reminder on November 30.

That’s all for now. Thank you for your understanding and support!

You. Are. Awesome.

The problem is when someone take these deeply emotional moments…and post them online immediately. They will proceed to let out their rage, tragic sadness, or malaise via tweets and posts. Continue reading “Have Your Freak-Out…Offline”
