Hi! I feel like I need to say hi to reconnect with y’all. Between travels, time zone changes and spring ahead plus an exorbitant amount of client work (that’s good, right?), I’m swamped and finding no ability to write, tweet, post on Facebook, pin to my boards, or breathe.
How’s by you?
I asked this question about a week ago on Facebook whether anyone thought Twitter was a ghost town (besides me). Because, I do think the tweet stream (there’s always something there, of course) has consistently withered to a dull roar.
My favorites column doesn’t move at the pace it used to, and original content by many is relegated to “tweet old post” or “from the archives.” Other tweets are RTs of others’ blog posts, and original commentary…? Fuhgeddaboudit.
Jason Konopinski had a great thought when I was lamenting (or was I whining)…he said we were on the edge of economic recovery and people were becoming employed (oohlala Lindsay Bell and Jugnoo Me!). Time was indeed becoming limited.
Could it also be the weather? The mild winter and the summer temps in March?
I haven’t felt this kind of pace in awhile; the clients are fewer, but the load is higher (not the money, sadly). There’s perhaps something there, too; clients/companies are feeling positive and investing more in marketing. In turn, that means more work for teams.
I’m not including attendance at South By Southwest this week, either, although that has definite effect on customary social media engagement.
What are you feeling? What do you think?
