Let’s Talk Twitteresque

There, I made up a new phrase. Twitteresque. I have no idea what it means. I just like the way it sounds, and if I like it, you might like it too. I'm adopting the "Effortless" approach. You may recall I used the Social Effort Scale last week, which determined that I "try too hard" on Twitter...even though … Continue reading Let’s Talk Twitteresque

“E” is for Effortless

Last week, I was Effortless in Twitter. I checked out this tool called the Social Effort Scale that measures your effort in social media; they can measure your profile in Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. I had achieved a score of 150 in Twitter, which is a score of Effortless. Go me! This week, I stumbled. Here's my … Continue reading “E” is for Effortless

Only You Can Stop Bullying

We had a terrible tragedy happen this past month in my community. A former student at my son's school took his life because of cyberbullying. His name was Ronin Shimizu, and he was twelve years old. He was the only boy on a cheerleading squad, which I suspect is the source of some of the bullying. Out of respect … Continue reading Only You Can Stop Bullying

I like one station in particular that plays those 80's classics (ouch) and some newer music that I … Continue reading Just Play Along

Facebook and the Confessions and Ramblings of a Gen-X’er

I'm on Facebook, of course, along with the rest of the almost billion users. That's mind numbing. As of June 2012, Facebook has over 955 million active users. This number includes mobile users (said to make up half the number of users), underage kids who shouldn't be there in the first place (FB restricts users under age 13) … Continue reading Facebook and the Confessions and Ramblings of a Gen-X’er
