Late December through to the end of January is a busy time with social demands increasing and work timelines contracting. This increased demand often results in a decrease in social media activity as people prioritise their time. By the end of January I was spending relatively little time on Stonetree projects and was becoming increasingly less motivated to create new content. I still had a passion for the topics I write about, but I had lost momentum. The answer it seemed was to look for a simple project to get me kick started. Enter Spammy the Seagull!
Spammy (his original name was intended to be Sammy but the auto correct on the iPad has a mind of its own) is my new Twitter mascot and you will be seeing a bit of him over the next few weeks. I have committed to a 30 day challenge, posting a photo of Spammy on Twitter each day, offering a different harm reduction tip. It’s a simple project that gets me talking with my online network again, while at the same time promoting less risky drug taking practices.
If you see a Spammy the Seagull tip you like please pass it on to friends, relatives and even complete strangers. You never know #harmreduction might start trending on Twitter.
Even better commit to your own 30 Day Harm Reduction Challenge and post 30 harm reduction tips in 30 days. It would be great to hear about peoples projects.
