My (Cuban) husband discovered social media later than many, and has found joy in reconnecting with people from the island who left over the years. But I am so over his addition to Facebook, I keep telling him, you'll never get that time back and you create nothing. I guess for him, though, he creates connections and relationships, and that for him is important.

I never got up and running as much as I wanted to on Medium through lack of time. I was a slow burner and enjoying the upward ride. I kind of took for granted it would remain as great as it was, and while I love the community, I'm having trouble now finding the motivation to prioritise writing here over work that will pay me. Right now, I need to making money. I'm not leaving, but I will dedicate time now to investigating Newsbreak too.
