I realized something today.
I use Hootsuite, which means I set up social media posts to go live up to 4 weeks in the future. I do this for my own accounts, and also accounts for The Horror Within. Mostly, this is so I can spend a little less time on social media while remaining connected–and so my posts can go live when other human beings are awake and reading.
This does lead to awkward moments though. Like when say, “Cecil the Lion killed by d-bag” is posted 2 weeks after the dentist responsible was run out of town on a rail. Or any story that has updates, really. So I gotta be kind of careful about timely news versus evergreen articles and stuff.
Then I thought…
When I die (and honestly, how much time could I possibly have left?) my accounts will continue posting for weeks. People are gonna be hella confused. Yeah, the posts are labeled “posted by Hootsuite,” but my oldster family members aren’t going to know what that means. But how do I address that before my Big Day so it doesn’t terrify or upset anyone? Also, that’s gonna be a hella awesome troll. I wish there was a way to plan for it to be more awesome in advance…like maybe writing my own hilarious obit and posting it someplace.
As for me, kidney stones have me in terrible hurtful pain. Ugh.Tags: lj, publishing, scribing, sociality
