Organizing the Socials


It’s been almost a year since I cleaned up my social media. And since I’ve done things like rebuilding boards on Pinterest, I figured I may as well do an overall cleanup. Reentering the dating world has got my heart all fluttering and such. Every girl I knew in school had a wedding board and I finally rebuilt mine. I also post way too many memes online, so I’m going through and cleaning that up. My Google backup though, that was frightening. The amount of crap on that… It’s crazy to think I spend so much time on my phone and on social media these days. Wiping everything clean and starting fresh is oddly satisfying.

A Screenshot of my phone? Weird

I ended up clearing about a thousand photos off my Google drive that we just memes. I don’t need the memes backed up there as I have almost all of them on my computer now. You never know when you’ll need a particular meme, but they don’t need to take up room on the cloud. Work is quiet enough that I can reorganize my whole social life sometimes. Not that I’m complaining, it’s good on my mental health. Looking at all the pictures I’ve taken of Shadow over the past year and bit I’ve had him makes me laugh a whole bunch.

My Instagram is next. I hadn’t updated any of the captions after my last breakup and after the guy I’m now seeing changed his gamertag, username? @ symbol? Since he changed his tag on the Insta’s. I also take a lot of selfies that I just hate after too long looking at them. Instagram is also now the only way I remember how long I’ve had Shadow for, as I posted about him there and not on Facebook…

The roommate sends me the best pictures!

Twitter isn’t a problem much anymore. I’ve gone through it and not really hated anything, so that’s a bonus. Same with Patreon and I guess technically Tumblr. There’s no cringy screenshots on this years post of this as I don’t have anything too bad anymore. Still backing things up on a thumb drive like this one, I have put years of my life onto a memory card to literally never look at again.

Actually looking at my Pinterest, I was so overwhelmed I just deleted over 90% of what I had. I had upwards of almost ten thousand pins and now I’m down to almost four thousand. Being a nerd definitely takes up most of my Pinterest at this point. One thousand and twenty pins that are the majority just Legend of Zelda pins is insane. I’m still in the process of reorganizing it, but the writing and the fan art, I’ll be busy for hours. Actually that might be a good thing to tackle today. Unless of course I get distracted looking at wedding dresses…

Like, my kids are so cute!!!

My cellphone has been taken care of, and I’ve tried to keep on top of the screenshot problem. I also went and deleted apps I don’t use. Now I have to go find a new couple backgrounds for winter. With each season, I try and update my background, keep it fresh and all. But that’s all I have for today! Since I posted about Halloween yesterday, I’ll sub this for a Multimedia Day. Thanks for stopping by and be safe!
