Ed Sheeran is quitting social media and why it might not be a bad thing

Another day, another…celebrity taking a break? Ed Sheeran recently announced that along with taking a break, he’s quitting social media for most of next year. But why would he ever want to do such a thing? For starters, let’s look at what he actually had to say about leaving in his Instagram post:


“I’m taking a break from my phone, emails, and all social media for a while,” Ed says, “I find myself seeing the world through a screen and not my eyes.” He continues with saying that he’s going to spend his time traveling the world to see everything he’s missed. This may come as a shock to some, considering that artists like Ed travel the world and see more of it than most people do. While that may be true, it’s also true that artists don’t really get a lot of time to explore the places they visit while on tour. We’re glad Ed wants to do this. Who knows, maybe exploring the world without being glued to a phone will inspire some interesting new music from him.

Quitting social media may not just turn out to be a good thing for our favorite ginger singer, it could turn out to be a good thing for the rest of us too. We can learn a thing or two from his decision and we can start monitoring how much we mindlessly use the internet. We all know social media is great, but even too much of a good thing can become a bad thing. That’s why we’re proud of Ed for bringing this subject to light. It’s nice to take your eyes off the screen once in a while and really live in the moment.

He finished his message off with something for us to look forward to: “The 3rd album is on its way and is the best thing I have made thus far. See you all next autumn, and thank you for being amazing.”

Thank you, Ed, for the amazing art you have shared with us all. Thank you for perhaps unintentionally reminding us all to think about how we too can start seeing the world through our own eyes more. We still admit that we’ll miss your tweets and Instagram updates, though. Thanks for everything. We can’t wait for album #3. We know it’s going to be great.

  1. First of all I would like to say great blog! I had a quick
    question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?

  2. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now
    each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

    Thanks a lot!

  3. This is really interesting, You are a very skilled
    blogger. I have joined your feed and look forward to seeking
    more of your wonderful post. Also, I’ve shared your website in my social networks!

  4. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails
    with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Bless you!

  5. I’m not sure exactly why but this site is loading incredibly
    slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it
    a issue on my end? I’ll check back later on and
    see if the problem still exists.

  6. Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after checking
    through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Nonetheless, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be
    book-marking and checking back frequently!

  7. I believe what you posted was very logical. However, think about
    this, what if you were to create a killer headline?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website,
    however what if you added something that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Why Ed Sheeran is
    quitting social media  is a little vanilla. You could look at Yahoo’s home page and see how
    they write news headlines to grab people to open the links.

    You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it
    would bring your blog a little livelier.
