On quitting as an act of self care

Digital media constantly sells us the joyful illusion of having it all. From interviews with folk under 25 who have built up a successful podcast in their spare time, to social media posts that are awash with links to new projects being started up alongside a main career, it can be easy to believe that...

How I quit Facebook (sort of)

To me, Facebook is a sea of noise. Having joined it a decade ago, I had befriended a great many people on the mother of all social media platforms long before its current format, which has left me with a news feed which demands way more time, attention and emotional energy than I have to...
