Everyone needs a place to express themselves online. A place to post whatever your heart wants. The problem comes when you have family members who want to see what you post but you would rather them not. Whether it be your blog or Twitter having the freedom to express yourself without having to say you are sorry or to be criticized for it. You don’t have to explain your opinions because they are your opinions and they should be not up for debate.
Storytelling can be as basic as sharing a tale around a dinner table or in front of a roaring fire. It can be as complex as an app on your computer or phone with all its bells and whistles. It’s my philosophy that the more something does the less good it is at performing any one task well and that goes for websites and apps like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and even WordPress. Maybe the basics where its about text, images, videos and audio presented simply can get the point across. Innovation is great but when it makes sense and can be of help to the end user. You know, there is such a thing as too much flash and awe.
The question, “how are you doing?” is a very loaded one. However its one that needs to be asked. Checking in with your family and friends is a good thing to do. Be prepared for answers that you will get. Caring about the welfare of others can help you deal with your own stuff. Getting stuff out in the open is good for your mental health.
So, my friends, how are you doing? (leave your answer in the comment box below)
Tomorrow standard time returns to clocks in a lot of places. Be sure to turn your clocks back one hour before turning in. You get an extra hour of sleep. Not sure I want an “extra hour” of 2020 though.
Well you get to see my words and musings for another year. I am proud to be powered by the great folks at WordPress.com. They focus on the heavy lifting so I can just create, connect, and communicate. Thank you all for your kindness, support, comments and visiting this little corner of the blogosphere.
Grace and peace to you all. Keep on blogging good people. Blogging is the way.
There are many things you come across online or in life in general that you wish you had never seen. For me yesterday was one of those situations where I saw something that was very surprising. The things that you can’t “unsee” seem to stick with you for a while but soon become a fleeting memory. Now some things you come across can disappoint you and leaves a longer impression.
The old saying goes that a picture can paint a thousand words and you know that is timeless wisdom. Maybe we need to look at things a new way or get new things to look at. Don’t forget to stop and smell the lovely roses (but scent is a sense that is for another post)
See what I mean?
