NEWS: I'm stepping away from social media

Are you there, Angels? It's me, Robyn.

Yeah, always wanted to say something along those lines.

Anyway, I hope this post finds you all well and enjoying the last of spring and start of summer! It's been hotter than hell here in my part of Florida, stormy as always. It could be worse and I'm grateful it's not.

So, I'm writing this post instead of posting on social media because, well, I'm finding I need a break from it. Social media that is. I'm a news junkie (okay, gossip queen), but the constant posts and tweets with so much hate and negativity are not healthy for me or anyone! I'm finding it harder and harder to keep a positive attitude these days. It's all overwhelming.

I've often used my social media profiles as a way to bookmark a time or feeling in my life, to celebrate others, and promote the people and things that matter to me. In looking back over the past few years, I've moved away from so many things that made me genuinely happy in some strange effort to be accepted by people I don't even know. That's only brought on heartache and disappointment. I'm finding it hard to trust my instincts these days. I'm finding it hard to quiet the constant noise telling me I'm not good enough or smart enough. Social media only shows me the things in my life that make me feel like an absolute freak. And not in a good way.

I'll remain active in the AD Angels reader group on Facebook and keep those who are interested about Eden Books' progress up-to-date with information on the Eden accounts. But for now, staying away is really the better option. I suppose in an odd way it's just returning to my life prior to 2015. When my insecurities, self doubt and self loathing were kept out-of-sight from every one.

As for Eden Books, the website development is well underway. I'm lucky to work with incredibly talented, smart, and innovative folks. We believe in Eden and making it the best experience for romance readers. So many great features that will make it a one-stop shop!

I want to hear from you, so feel free to drop an email every now and then! Let me know how things are going with you. And no matter what, please always remember I'm here for anyone who needs an outlet. Loneliness is a killer.

Be kind to yourself. Be kind to those around you.
