#AskMandirito: What began your love of social media?

I’m actually really happy you asked that, because it’s been a journey ever since I became exposed to our first desktop computer. You know, one of those massive, box shaped monsters that used to take up the whole desk. The desktop had a dial-up speed, but something about it fascinated me. I felt like I had every creative tool imaginable in the tips of my fingers. Quickly, it progressed from the popularity of the desktop computer (that held the basics of features) to my all time favorite, the laptop, which opened up a whole new range of tools. For years, I didn’t have my own personal computer, so I found myself exploring the internet on my parents’ computer. Little did I know that that spark of interest would drive me to where I am today: obsessed with social media and amazed by the ability to promote my work to a much larger audience. I feel like the allure of using a computer to have my creative voice heard on a larger scale gave me a sense of community that I would never pass up, and that feeling still remains with me today. I have met so many incredible people through the internet that have inspired me to promote myself and have pushed me to not give up on my creative endeavors. I am still continuing to learn all of the ways in which I can use technology to build a brand for myself.

Do you ever feel like, because of the accessibility of the internet and all the topics that you post, that you have to almost….filter yourself? I’m always watching what I’m saying and doing, and I don’t like it. I don’t like feeling like I have to “tone down” my personality to keep from being offensive, or being considered “unjustified”. Can’t I just spill the beans, and if you don’t like them, can you just tuck them into the trash can and not look at them again? Or does it always have to be that you’re gathering the beans, waiting to put them in a bb-gun to fire back as ammunition at the moment you feel threatened or disturbed? I don’t want to offend people, and that’s not why I’m posting this. I just don’t want to contain my thoughts anymore, about the world. What ever happened to “being yourself”? Why can’t I be myself without a black and white filter blocking your view? I’m colorful, and weird, and excited about the world. I have a lot to say and I’d love to be able to say it.

What are your thoughts on filtering yourself? Do you ever feel like you don’t get to say enough?
