I’m not expecting much (if any) traffic on Medium. I’m here primarily to read interesting things, feel inspired and learn something, especially since I noticed the time I spend on Facebook is depressingly high. I probably spend hours scrolling through it, reading the same stuff over and over in search of a anything I may have missed earlier, swiping down so I don’t miss a minute of new content.

A significant amount I don’t care about, it feels like I’m scrolling for scrolling’s sake and for the constant source of stimulation. I don’t want to go too far into how I think I’m turning into a social media zombie and finding myself wanting to tell all my friends about the funny sneeze I just had.

As for writing, I want to set a precedent that this can be a nice mind-dump for me. I may discuss how I feel about certain topics or random little ideas… Once in a blue-moon, most likely.

That’s all that’s on my mind for now.
