Just a few days ago, I was complaining about my social media fatigue. Well, I guess it is a little more than that.
This fatigue has spread to the news. Now I have labeled myself a “news freak”, checking out different news sources during the day to keep up with what’s going on. Twitter and Reddit are my best friends. My two favorite iOS apps are Flipboard and Pocket. The first one allows me to get news from different sources in a better way than RSS ever allowed me to do so and the second one lets me save links to articles that I can read at some other time. And yet my Klout score keeps slowly going down. Yes, I spend less and less time on Twitter. Flipboard still distills interesting news and yet I’m gone after flipping through just a few pages.
Is it that I’m more preoccupied by my own issues? It is that news seems to be just leftovers from days before and just being reheated? Or is it that I have gotten to the point that I don’t even care anymore? Maybe it’s really just being burned out and needing a break.
Maybe I just need to go into rehab. Or take a long vacation away from everything.
And tomorrow will be a new day…
