Ello is the only social media site that doesn't give me anxiety.
I actually love posting stuff on @ello. Unlike every other social media network site, I very rarely feel the need to hashtag my posts. If you guys come across my work organically, that's great - but if not, I'm ok with that too. I never feel the need to time my posts just right incase I miss the web traffic from America or that I need to create a certain type of "content" (I hate that word) in order to be liked. I create the things that I want, when I want and I share it, and I click Love on the things I like without ever feeling obligated.
Being on ello fills me with a sense of ease - I don't feel like I'm shouting into a vacuum but at the same time I never feel like I'm in competition with any of you either.
EDIT: OK apart from that one time I launched a campaign to win the @yourdailybread bready - but I was new back then and still emotionally scarred from all the other social media sites
Thank you to everyone in the ello community for a great year - all the comments, the Loves, the Repost - I appreciate it so much. I can't wait to see what we all create in the new year!
