“We want to be loved,’ ” quotes Britt-Marie. “ ‘Failing that, admired; failing that, feared; failing that, hated and despised. At all costs we want to stir up some sort of feeling in others. The soul abhors a vacuum. At all costs it longs for contact.’ ” ― Fredrik Backman, My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry Today… Continue reading 4 Weeks Facebook Free
Two weeks ago today, I gave up Facebook (again). It’s been easier this time and I really feel I will stick with the Facebook Diet Attempt #723. While I probably won’t lose any weight from this particular diet, what I have seemed to have gained over this short period is more happiness. What is different… Continue reading Facebook Diet: Gain Time & Happiness
When given the homework of doing something artistic, I never thought I would actually follow-through. In fact, I gave myself permission to skip this exercise because when I say that I’m a terrible drawer/painter/Play-doh sculpture maker, I’m not being humble, I’m being accurate. However, I decided to give it the old college try. Feeling somewhat… Continue reading Maybe I Should Have Fingerpainted Instead
I’ll be the first to admit that writing anything is not coming to me easily this year. I’m not sure what happened but it’s like the well is completely dry, and I’m not really all that thirsty. I did manage, however, to play a game called 6-word days inspired by Judy Clement Wall in her… Continue reading 6-Word Day for 7 Days
As a stay-at-home mom (more or less), I run around all day long picking up this, buying that, dropping this off, leaving other stuff elsewhere, and I’ve begun to notice a trend. Maybe this has been happening all around me and I’ve never noticed before because I was so busy, but now it’s all I… Continue reading When Parking Used to Mean Getting Close (aka ‘Necking’)
Deleting Facebook seems to be on my mind a lot these days. I still check in with my FaceFriends about once a day but what I am finding is that there’s nothing too exciting going on (or at least it’s not exciting to me which is a huge difference). The people who overpost continue to… Continue reading Farewell to Facebook and All My FaceFriends?
A few weeks ago, I happened to be on Twitter when @ADramaticMommy was talking about how she had free deodorant to give away to anyone who wanted it. I thought it odd but also didn’t want to pry into Melanie’s personal life or her personal hygiene! I figured there was something more there I didn’t… Continue reading A Little Bit of Klout — Don’t Keep It a Secret!
As a relative newbie in the Twitter world, what I can share with you is my ‘aha moment,’ the day I figured out why my business needs to be on Twitter. It was a day when I stopped wondering, “Why would anyone be on Twitter” to “Why isn’t everyone on Twitter?” As a businesswoman on… Continue reading Twitducation Part II
People who don’t “get” Twitter should try harder to do so otherwise they may get left behind in their competitors’ feathers. I admit I did not get Twitter either but I wasn’t really using it properly. I followed only people I knew or people who others recommended. I think at the beginning of my foray… Continue reading Twitducation Part I of III
