my changing relationship with online communities
Over the past few years, I've noticed a shift in how I engage with online communities and social media platforms. There was a time when I was very active and engaged, particularly in niche interest-based communities around music and technology. I would spend hours each day discussing my passions, sharing content, and getting to know other passionate individuals.
However, I have far less energy for that type of engagement these days. I often prefer lower-key activities or solo experiments in my spare time instead of diving deep into online discussions. Even though I'm not super busy every day, the communities I was once so involved in hold little appeal now. And interacting takes real effort compared to how effortless it once felt.
