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 […]

No Goals for 2012

Goals are the main topic for many of the blogs I follow. Everyone’s got such great plans for 2012 and I wanted to add my own to the mix, but . . . I didn’t have any. Sadness. Rather than not blog, I decided to figure out why that was. I thought about what I […]

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