A Summary of Blog Happenings in 2017
2017 has been a pretty fruitful year for me, in terms of outreach within the chronic illness community and beyond. I’ve made some lovely friends from all around the world, and my favourite kind of support group is one behind a screen. I hate going for any type of networking events in real life, even if it’s for something I enjoy.
My favourite blogging activity – apart from writing, of course! – is curating content for Twitter. I used to think that the volume and noise on that platform was overwhelming, but once you get the hang of it, is great fun with endless possibilities. I post a minimum of 15 articles per day, which takes quite a bit of reading to curate into a coherent, useful feed. While there’s a lot of junk floating around cyberspace, there are innumerable gems awaiting discovery, too. A well put perspective is priceless. P.s. If anybody is looking to hire a content curator, I’m totally up for it 😉 With Twitter, I also feel like I can be useful to others without oversharing about my own life.
I’m not quite into Instagram for the same reason – it’s too personal for my liking. You might think that that’s bullshit because many of the articles I write are highly personal 😉 But there’s still a difference between ‘personal’ and ‘privacy’. I can describe gross bodily functions, without telling you where I am exactly, for example!
In conclusion, here are the top five blog posts published on ‘A Chronic Voice’ in 2017. It’s been a pleasure having you around, and I look forward to interacting with you more in 2018!
