The Opinion On Everything Age

This morning I read an interesting observation on Facebook from Lisa Nowak. She’s noticed a big decline in presidential signs/bumper stickers in her hometown and every response cited the same two reasons for this: No one’s mind is ever changed because of them and they invite trouble. I agreed with everyone and don’t think this […]

The Quest for Conversation

Been feeling blah about social media lately. As little as two years ago, anytime I signed on Twitter there was someone to chat with. It was the MAIN reason I loved Twitter. It totally skipped the friend request process of Facebook and moved straight to the chatting. Like mingling at a party, which is ironic […]

The Reappearance of Me

Can’t believe it’s been over a week since I last posted. I hadn’t really thought about it until I read Kristen’s Wednesday post, Frankenfriends & Zombie Tweets.

Hey, Quit Hogging All the Hashtags

Kait Nolan touched on this in her awesome Social Media Ennui. This trend of loading up a tweet with tons of hashtags. I nodded in agreement as I read and possibly clapped at my computer screen. Later in the week, I saw a tweet go by about someone’s new blog post. I don’t remember what […]
