November 3, 2022

I started posting on LinkedIn a few times a week.

Most of you know that I had been off social media for several years. I wasn’t into the endless scrolling, the comparison trap, or the ethical & privacy dilemmas associated with social media.

I still have some of the same concerns, and I also felt an inner urge to start sharing my writing more broadly and to participate in wider conversations.

So, I’m back - in a limited way.

LinkedIn may seem like an odd choice. It doesn’t have some of the slightly touchy-feely/pretty features of IG etc. It’s more of a professional feel.

That’s exactly what drew me there.

I’m interested in having conversations and sharing thoughts about the professions of herbalism and nutrition. LinkedIn is slow enough that I can comfortably show up a few times a week. I feel caught up after 15 minutes and go about the rest of my day.

I also appreciate that it handles long(ish) articles and posts well.

Am I still hesitant about participating in social media? Yep, no doubt.

However, I’m going in with an open mind. I’m giving it 3-6 months. If I love it, great. If not, I’ll reassess.

If you’re there, I’d love to connect.



P.S. Here are a few of my LinkedIn posts in case you’d like to check them out or say hello:
