Those who say blogging is dead doesn’t know what they are talking about. WordPress people would have something to say about that. Blogging is life, blogging is a second religion, blogging is good. Right now its where I hang my social hat.

One Week Without #Facebook

Business-Does-Not-Need-Facebook-Page

So, today is my one week without Facebook anniversary. I have been just fine without it. Sure stuff is going on there I wonder about but in reality, I am learning that I just don’t need to know what is going on with everyone all the time. Avoiding drama is good for one’s mental health. As I wrote about earlier there is a Fear Of Missing Out but as you go along that fear is less and less.

Perhaps Facebook has told us that you can’t live without it but I know a few folks who are doing just that and many of them are fellow bloggers. Facebook can be a strong influence in terms of what is posted there. I am just glad there is one less thing to worry about. Let’s see how long this lasts, maybe it can be something long-term. We shall see.

YAFB – Yet Another Facebook Break

I am taking yet another Facebook break. I have discovered its hard to be yourself there and control who sees what you want to keep private. Yes, I know my blog is open for all to see but the one thing about my blog is that I pay for domain registration and the premium package through WordPress.com. It is important that I have total control over what I say, my content and even who sees these words.

My connections on Twitter and Instagram will not change. You can connect with both through the widgets on the right. Connect with me if you wish there.

A Thanksgiving Thought #thanksgiving

AAA-2016-Thanksgiving-Travel-Forecast-610x330

Today in America its Thanksgiving and its a time of feasting, family, friends and hopefully fun. It’s a tradition that has spanned generations. People coming together to express what they are thankful for is the rule of the day.

Yes, this holiday is not without its baggage. Sure there are stories of mistreatment and anguish in recorded history. We cannot ignore those facts because it would not be respectful to those who have suffered.

However, we can remember the problematic stuff and forge a way forward that recognizes the best of what Thanksgiving can be. In the times in which we live its good to have something positive to say and to remember the good times in our lives.

For many, it’s hard to be thankful and that is where we can come in to help provide experiences that they can hold onto.

I believe this holiday is one of redemption and renewal for something good. Happy Thanksgiving to each of you, far and wide.
