I'm quite active on five social media platforms: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Blogger. Although it might not come across, of the five, i feel the deepest connect with my blog. And i'm not just saying it. I've been actively writing on this platform since 2007 and my frequency has only increased so far. Yes, i refuse to promote it on other platform for several reasons. The primal one being, what's the point? I write for myself here. Unlike a tweet which i might have framed keeping the readers in mind, i don't write 140+ character material. So naturally, i don't expect much in terms of followers (which currently stands at 321, an embarrassing figure indeed!) either. But that's how social media works. If you don't exhibit or scream or both, you don't get noticed.
That said, every once in a while, you experience something which makes you feel better about yourself. For instance, a student of my brother's walked up to him after the lecture and asked him a question. "Are you Shakti Shetty's brother?" My brother nodded and asked the young fellow, "Do you follow him on Twitter?" The student replied, "No, i don't like his tweets but i love his blog!"
