If you are a fan of Twitter like me be aware there is a new look coming soon. It will be interesting to see how it works and functions. I am a believer that a user interface update is good every now and then as long as it makes sense. We shall see what it does and will it be easier or more difficult to use.

Question Of The Day – Social Media Break and Blogging

Friends,

When you take a social media break do you include your blog as a part of that time away? I am contemplating some sort of break soon and want to know what you think. Your input is appreciated.

Something About Online Living

AAEAAQAAAAAAAAIMAAAAJGY4NTIzYTIyLTlhNjUtNDljZS05YjZiLTFmNjkwZTJjN2MzOAIt seems so many people are living their lives online without stepping away to live it in reality. The lure of a virtual life is so much more appealing than that of a real existence. We find people who can’t differentiate what is artificial and what is actual.

When you un-friend someone on social media it could be interpreted as un-friending in the real world which is not the case but the two seem to have linkage in the hearts and minds of many.

People are emboldened to do and say things on social platforms that they might not say to your face. That in itself can cause many problems and can end friendships and family connections. You have to decide if it’s all worth it.

Everything is amplified online and there is no way to translate full meaning in text or words without possibly offending someone. Freedom of expression is a great thing but with it comes great care and responsibility. You have to know who you are conversing with and not everyone will get what you are saying could be humorous or even serious.

Your online life is to enhance your real world life not the other way around. Although for me I am always looking for things to blog about and to be inspired by what happens to me in daily living.

My friends it’s a very good thing to get out and get off-line for a bit. Get some fresh air, go to a coffee-house and meet friends face-to-face. Engage in conversations over a meal. If you have a porch invite your friends over for real face time. The social network has existed for years before computers or social networking. It will give you a lot of great ideas to post about.

Living online should be done in a measured way. Living off-line is where the action and adventure lies. Having the world at your fingertips does not replace having the world outside your door.

Beginning To Wonder About Me On Twitter

I think I might be on one of those lists and services where you can buy Twitter followers. Not quite happy with the thought of that being a possibility. Some people want to inflate their followers artificially so they can make money or something like that. If someone wants to follow me on Twitter or here on the blog they are pretty much welcome to but know I am not a famous person and at times I find myself rather dull. Interesting.

How To Make “Homemade Ice” From Meh Food

This is a parody/satire site on Facebook and YouTube that pokes a little fun at those short cooking videos you see on social media. You will find this to be both funny and snarky in equal measure. You can also find them on Twitter.
