When I consider increasing my use of Instagram for sharing photos, all I see are people absentmindedly scrolling past the things I’ve worked to create and share. I’m doing nothing more than “feed”ing them so they can kill a few idle minutes. They’re not even really looking. Why would I want to do that? The kinds of photographs I like, and the ones I like to make, are not the ones alarming enough to make people stop scrolling, nor are they the ones best suited for viewing on a fucking telephone.

What if I used Medium as a microblog? That would be crazy, right? I mean, isn’t Medium a place for pseudo pundits and self-important twats to post long-form capital-C Content? Maybe, but could it also be where a goofball like me just blurts things out?
