Social Media

Twitter my other Twitter (I have a Gemini Moon, so I have twin twitters!)

Linkedin

Facebook (see all of my articles on Facebook)

Be social – share your stuff – share other people’s stuff – stay in contact with people far away and the ones closest to you who have no idea what it is you’re doing day to day.  LOL

I belong to the generation that doesn’t do “social media,” so any time you share one of my articles I appreciate it greatly.  Yes, my friends are useless when it comes to social promotion, but I love them anyway.  I hear all the time – “Oh, I read your article and it was great!”  But that’s where it ends – they don’t “like” or “share” or do any of the social media promotions someone might in their 20’s or beyond or if they had a job that depended on other people’s “likes” – then again when I was in my 20’s we didn’t even have social media – heck, we didn’t even have computers or cell phones unless they were used at work or belonged to your boss. These items were luxuries;  in the 21st Century  they are a necessity.  I don’t hold out much hope that anything will ever change the way my friends interact in social media (or, correction – don’t interact in social media), so I’m relying on those of you who are kind enough to read and like my articles and share them – So, a SUPER BIG THANKS TO YOU!

  1. I have twin Twitters, too! I’ll be sure to follow you 🙂
    It wasn’t that long ago that I was terribly anti-technology…think, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman (an old favorite TV show of mine, way back when). Slowly, slowly, I have come to appreciate and embrace technology and all its wonders. I tell my children all the time how lucky they are to have the internet to use to help them with their schoolwork – I remember the days of card catalogues and endlesss hours at the library, not to mention REAL cut-and-paste!
    I am thankful every day now for technology and most especially the blogosphere, where happily I have encountered you and so many other wonderful and friendly people!
    Pleased to meet you 🙂

    • I totally agree with you – (wasn’t Doc Quinn’s boyfriend cute?) I have to thank my many years working in law firms with busy IT people who showed me the ropes in a lot of techy stuff and also my persistence at learning software programs. I have an insatiable appetite for learning new things – it can be annoying and I am sure it’s part ADD. Still I could use some WP help with site I’m working on. WP is a great place to share and meet new people of varied interests and I can’t wait every day to get on here and make new discoveries and new friends – like you 🙂 thanks for stopping by and for your lovely note. I look forward to more of your posts.

  2. I hear what you are saying re social media, computers etc. In the early nineties I was laughed at because I wanted and did create a database to make paying staff easier and more accurate.

    • I look at it as if there was a total split in time – when technology came in – half of my friends embraced it (to a point) and half of my friends don’t even know how to do email or hook up an HD cable to a TV. LOL – Although there I something to be said for life as it was pre-tech .. you could actually disappear for a day and no one could track you down with phone, texts, GPS … getting lost for a day was a true escape. Nowadays vacations are working vacations and I wouldn’t be surprised if the next step in evolution was an expanded head to absorb more data and a pointer finger that resembles a stylus. LOL
