30 Day Writing Challenge: Day 1

In a fit of masochism, I’ve decided to try a 30-Day Writing Challenge. Join me! You can comment here with your own responses to the day’s prompt.


  1. Five problems with social media.


  1. It can become overwhelming. It takes a lot of time for me to keep up with my personal and professional social media.
  2. It can be a time suck. I don’t want to know how many hours I’ve spent playing on social media when I could have been doing something more productive.
  3. It can be destructive. Because of the nature of social media, some people are tempted to use it in harmful ways. It gives trolls and others free rein.
  4. It can be misleading. Because it’s so fast and unmediated, social media lends itself to fast rumors and misinformation.
  5. It can mangle language. I wince at all the misspellings and grammatical errors–especially when I’ve made them!
