Shouting In The Wind

Sometimes when we share our thoughts on Social Media it can feel as if we aren’t reaching people. It can sometimes feel that unless you are one of those people who engages with the latest “righteous indignation” that seems to pervade sites such as Twitter you are talking to a very small audience or even to yourself.

One of my friends described it as “Shouting into the Wind” suggesting that like a leaf caught in a blowing gale your thoughts are simply tossed around. But don’t lose heart because at some point that leaf almost always comes to ground.

So it is with sharing thoughts, advice and encouragement on sites such as Twitter. There is always a chance that someone who really needs to hear what you have shared will chance upon it through a like, a retweet or a search.
