Social Media Can Make Us Unintentionally Rude

If you’re on Facebook, even casually, this is probably a familiar notification: “So and so has invited you to like his page” While I’m only being asked for a click of the mouse, I find the method to get my click kind of impersonal. Maybe I’m being whiner, but I’d like my support to mean […]

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 […]

Looking Back: A Year(ish) Since I Joined Social Media

We’ve all heard the phrase “Time flies when you’re having fun.” and yes, it’s been a fun year. But even more amazing is how much was packed into this small amount of time. 1. I joined Twitter.

So When’s the Book Coming Out? #ROW80 Update

My Goal: 1 hour, but minimum 30min of writing fiction during workdays and 2 hours any day I’m not working. After all the baby steps I’ve been taking, I think finishing my debut is about to be kicked into high gear. I came to this conclusion because of how well things are going for me […]
