New year, new…Twitter handle? I've been debating consolidating my social media for a while now. I know that some bloggers have separate Twitter and Instagram accounts for their blog and personal life. That used to be me! But then, handling two accounts became way too much to handle.
I was neglecting my personal accounts because the blog account has been so demanding. I'm also planning to use my newly merged account for my new communications consulting business. This new account has a whole new look, combining all aspects of my life and I love it!
I'm definitely a private person, so this was a difficult decision to make. But I hope that only people who are interested in what I share will follow my *new* (combined) Twitter account. With open and public accounts comes negativity and vulnerability. Pretty much every celeb account/largely followed account on Twitter or Instagram receives hateful and crazy comments. Not interested in that lifestyle. 100K followers is not worth my sanity and peace of mind. I think it helps that I'm only following my friends and some blogger friends. So far, it's been great having my social media all under my name.

What do you think about this? Should bloggers have separate social media accounts or just one?
