A few months ago, I quit social media…kind of. It’s easy to just say ‘quit’ than explain exactly how my usage is currently but some people think I’m still very active. The unfortunate thing is that I am social for work. My job involves monitoring and sometimes using social media. Also, I follow a ton […]

It’s so hard to use social media. It’s simple to download the latest app that connects you to the latest hot social network and invite a ton of friends, make a post and attach a photo of your burrito. That is an easy thing to do. Using social media like a diary is not. To […]

Since completing a 30-day break from a lot of things, I’ve been too busy to actually write about the experience. I failed on a couple of things. One of those was no meat and another was no beer. I did well but caved in a few days short of my 30-day mark. There are no […]
