Two things in this post: (1) I'm going to start writing shorter posts on here just whenever I think of them. (2) I need ya'll to get on Twitter.
Why I Need to Write More Informal & More Frequent Posts
The problem with blogging for a long time (over a decade) is you start to become so formal.
The joy of blogging is really more about sharing ideas and collaborating.
For me, blogging is like a sketchbook is to an artist. You play with ideas, develop thoughts, which you then later turn into books, the same way an artist would turn a sketch into a painting.
And reading comments really brings me a lot of joy – and the collaboration is really helpful for me.
Why I Need Ya'll To Get on Twitter
However, right now, I don't have comments on this blog.
You see, when I started my blog in 2007, I loved the back and forth I had with my readers in the comments.
I had to switch from Wordpress to the Ghost platform a year ago because I was so shadow-banned by Google, and no one could even share my blog posts on Facebook, Pinterest, etc. They were marking them as "spam."
Anyway, I don't have comments on this blog right now because I literally cannot afford to pay for comments (I could do Disqus but they have a ridiculous amount of ads they force you to run for the "free" service).
So this is why I do most of my "sketching" on Twitter.
I used to do it on Facebook, but they keep censoring and banning me and it's really not helping my PTSD.
Why I Need You To Get on Twitter
I really thrive on the interaction with readers, and until I can get my comments back, I would LOVE to interact with ya'll on Twitter. I need you guys!
Twitter is my number one social media platform now for the forseeable future. Why? Because FREE SPEECH!
I am so freaking sick of this BS on Facebook:
While I love the fact that most of you are on Facebook, I hate the fact that they constantly throttle me over there, and I really can't speak freely because they might ban me again. I was banned for a year and a half – and I lost over a quarter of a million followers!
You can follow me and interact with me on Facebook, but please know that I will not be posting there as much. My main presence will be on Twitter.
I am so excited about the FREEDOM OF SPEECH Elon Musk is enabling on Twitter. I haven't felt this free since oh I don't know, 2016? Actually, no, never. Because back then I couldn't say a fraction of the things I am saying now.
I can't talk openly on Facebook, Instagram, etc. But I can on Twitter. So that is where I will be most of the time from now on.
What Will You Get Out of It?
It's not just about how you can help me. You will actually benefit greatly.
For example, I just posted this thread today on Twitter – all about Prince Harry, Harry Potter, the DNA of Jesus, and eucharistic miracles.
People – does it get any better than this? No, it doesn't. This is the kind of thing I would write on my blog if I had time.
These are the sketches I will be using to write my future books. Yes, the current book I'm writing is all about health, but in the future, I'm going to be writing a lot more about faith, religion, history and science.
Sooo much swirling around in my head. I really want to hear your thoughts.
Follow Me on Twitter
I really need the freedom, now more than ever, to speak freely. So I hope you will get on Twitter and add me: @cheeseslave2.
When you add me on Twitter, please send me a tweet with the word "Cheeseslave" and I'll follow you back.
You can DM me on there, too.
