Well, in the view of what my current goal is with the EP I’m working on, I did something drastically in the wrong direction promotionally speaking. And, to be honest… I don’t care. I’m better off for it anyhow. My goal for the EP might not be better off for it, but I am. And that’s what matters.
To those of you that have kept up with me through my other various endeavors will know that I am not much on social media. After I quit touring full time, the novelty of social media for me lost its flair. And with that, I have started and stopped different accounts a few times. So, this is nothing new. If you look around on the site, you will see that the one social media account that I do still have is Youtube. Right now there isn’t anything on it (accept a few old songs). But, in the near future I have some ideas that will cause that platform to come in handy.
As for things like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and the like… I realize that those platforms are good for getting the word out about my current projects.
But… at what cost?
Don’t get me wrong. I am having a great time putting together this EP and would love to see it have success by reaching people that would enjoy it. But, at the end of the day the only reason why I find myself on these social platforms is self-serving. And that’s not what Christ was about. Most people will assume that Satanism is the worship of Satan. But this is far from the truth. It is actually the agnostic worship of self. I must decrease that Christ might increase in me. It is pride that comes before the fall. This has always been true, therefore it will always be true.
When I get on these accounts, all I see are people boasting self. And upon reflection, how am I any different?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m no more a sinner or saint for choosing to step away from or keep social media active in my daily life. I just personally can’t do it. I’ve got better things to do with my free time than work out my thumb while eyeing the benumbed social habits of our fallen society one finger swipe at a time.
