After five years of scheduling 50+ social media posts per day, I’m stepping down as The Sociological Review’s Digital Engagement Fellow next week. This seems like the perfect time for me to take a break from social media. I’ve locked my Twitter and Instagram accounts, deleted my Facebook account and the only place you will find me online is here on my blog. It’s so key to my writing and thinking that blogging isn’t really social to me, even if I try my best to engage. But apologies in advance if I’m slow to respond to comments, as I’m desperate for a break from mediated conversation at this stage.
