Here we go...

Being the product makes me tired!

By Simon Ratcliffe

Back in September I made a post about being tired of social media. Yes, I’ve been down this path before! Cut it out of my life, that was the plan. Unfortunately, within a week I was back, clicking away, wasting time and judging myself. How long will I last this time?

This profoundly ironic image, taken with Marie’s borrowed iPhone, is now posted as the only image on IG and my other social media accounts. The image garnered more likes than any other image I’ve ever posted! Comparing makes no sense – social media feeds this negativity in me. Judging my art by accepting the whim of the algorithms is no way to live as a creative. Making the effort and posting here as often as I can, that’s my plan. Here we go!
