I'm taking an indefinite hiatus from 𝕏

Published 3 months agoΒ β€’Β 1 min read

Dear Friends:

Today, I'm announcing I'll be taking an indefinite hiatus from 𝕏.

Over the weekend I had a moment of clarity and I realized the stuff I was doing on 𝕏 no longer aligned with my goals as an online creator.

When I first started building on 𝕏 back in June 2023, I was doing it because I wanted to drive traffic to my copywriting and web design offers.

Shortly after I started posting on 𝕏, I got swept up into the whirlwind that is Money Twitter and lost sight of my goals.

Then, around October, I began experimenting with LinkedIn.

I thoroughly enjoyed the couple weeks I was hanging out there.

I met some cool people and had loads of fun interacting.

It was a different vibe than 𝕏 β€” and I liked it...

But I realized I was spreading myself thin.

So I went back solely to 𝕏 and continued on with my posting, engagement, and everything else...

Neglecting my goal of building my e-mail marketing business.

I'm realizing it's now time for me to get back on mission, to build this business.

I want to build my YouTube channel.
I want to build my personal brand on LinkedIn.
I want to build my e-mail marketing business.

𝕏 doesn't really have a place in there.

So I'm done for the time-being.

In the future, I might hire a ghostwriter to handle my 𝕏 account, but until then, it's gonna be mostly a "dead account."

My plan going forward is to post a few times a week on LinkedIn (not three times a day as I was doing on 𝕏), one video per week on YouTube, and spending tons of time responding to various advertisements for e-mail marketers on job boards and freelance websites.

There's more to this story, but we won't get into it right now.

Thank you for being here on this journey with me. I hope you'll join me on LinkedIn and YouTube... it's gonna be a fun 2024. :)

Talk soon,
Neil

For 42 years, Uncle Bill busted his rear working at the Chrysler Transmission plant in Kokomo, Indiana. Not a bad career... it was labor intensive and back-breaking work, but all-in-all, not a bad career. Uncle Bill was a smart guy. A history buff. Well-spoken. Could fix just about anything. He was a strong, masculine leader. He took great care of his wife (my aunt) and his kids (my cousins). He called me "The Bubble Gum Kid" β€” because during my childhood I went through a phase where I loved...

It has been about two decades since I was diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. Shortly after I was diagnosed, my doctor prescribed some pills. They helped with focus, but they had some other side effects, including loss of appetite, difficulty sleeping, increased anti-social behavior, etc. I didn't take the pills for very long because I didn't like the way they made me feel. I continued struggling with focus and my parents gave me the task (at age 15) to find a holistic...

I dropped the ball on sending out an email last week about my LinkedIn progress, and it's primarily because life has been smacking me around lately and I haven't been able to invest the time I'd like to on the platform. Regardless, I've still been growing on LinkedIn (standing at 399 followers at the moment) and was issued a "Top Writing Voice" badge late last week! But the question still stands: Will I be able to hit 1,000 followers by the end of the month? So, here's the deal... I believe...
