Handy mobile app features: twitter, instragram and tumblr

Some social media apps on mobile have some really handy features I like. I got used to these features, which is why when I join new apps and notice they don’t have the same flexibility or capability as the others, I am propelled to call this out on my blog. 😛

GenXers, digital technology and the authenticity of blogging friendships

I am interrupting my vacation memories reporting to bring you some other thoughts percolating through my head. 🙂

There are people in my life who consider internet friends not real.

Most ‘real’ people in my life consider all things social media ‘fake’. Essentially, they consider a person I ‘met’ through a blog or social media as ‘not a real friend’ and thereby ‘fake’.

As if meeting in physical life is a prerequisite to authentic friendship.

Hump day drivel

Listen. I’m sick of living in this country. The weather sucks here in my corner of 🇨🇦. It’s May 1st for effs sake and we have rain, cold, grey skies and no sign of spring.

There’s the dog living here and another one needs walking and the family wants to go to the Auto show and a kid has a practice tonight and a game in Niagara Falls tomorrow and, and, and…

Ok fine, I’ll get up and make coffee.

This morning I was irritated by an alert that came in on my phone. Here’s what happens in Canada:

Brain rot

Over the last few weeks, I have spent time outside of WordPress to look for fresh, new content. I dabbled in a few social media apps mostly, but also went on some other blog platforms.

Here’s what I found:

Very little quality content.

Just Do It

This morning I’m mentally and emotionally preparing myself for the inevitable.

I’ve been prepping my brain all weekend in between trips to outdoor and indoor rinks, as well as ‘wet’ rinks (pools) 🙃 to accept the fact that Monday will be the day to make it happen.

It has to happen today. No matter what.
