I’ll admit, I never thought it would happen. I didn’t even see it coming. And, then it hit me. I haven’t blogged in weeks, I rarely find time to tweet during the day and I even scheduled a Facebook update a week in advance knowing what my upcoming schedule looked like.
I used to shake my head in dismay when people said they “didn’t have time for Twitter.” I’d argue it only takes a few minutes here and there. That’s the truth, unless you really want to contribute something valuable to keep your followers engaged and attract new ones. When I look through the tweet stream at my last 30 tweets, I’m not exactly providing earth-shattering value. And, no, live-tweeting the Oscars Sunday night doesn’t count.
So, what do you do when you’re too busy to “socialize”? Am I the only one who feels a twinge of guilt for being absent on social media channels? Or, is it natural to shelve it when “real work” takes precedence?
