Taking a Social Media Break

I had my first physical therapy session for my broken shoulder today. I was eager to get started stretching and strengthening the muscles in my arm which haven't been used much in the last month. I was excited to get my range of motion back and get on with life. While I knew recovery would take some time, I figured once PT started recovery would

Why I Don’t Unfriend You

I've about had it with social media. I spend more time scrolling on by - and not engaging - than ever before. This is not the first time I've ranted about unfriending people, and it probably won't be the last. I find myself only engaging on safe posts now. I will like pictures of your new puppy (I'll actually use the ♥ for new puppies),

I Guess I’m Gonna Start Blogging Again

What a long strange trip it's been. We're only one week into 2021 and already it's outdone its predecessor. Pretty sure there's no need for a recap, we've all been glued to our screens while the Capitol was stormed and breached by a bunch of dumbass Trump supporters. Chaos All those who stormed the Capitol and entered it to cause harm, fear and chaos should

Why Has My Blog Traffic Dropped So Significantly

I can't be the only one whose blog traffic has dropped so significantly in the last few months, right? Has Google done some new changes to its algorithm? Surely it couldn't be because I only write a new post about once a month. Hell, I've been doing that for years. Is blogging dead? I can't believe that to be true. While I know the original

I Wonder What Would Happen If I…..?

2018 is going to be the year when I ask myself - often - I Wonder What Would Happen If I.....? Like most everyone I make New Year's Resolutions. Also, like most everyone, I usually forget about them by the second week of the year.  Usually my resolutions are about losing weight, finding love and improving my finances. And, to my credit, I made considerable strides

Can’t Muster Anymore Outrage

Between all the many terrorist attacks, stupid things President Trump tweets or what stupid thing a washed up celebrity has said, I just can't muster anymore outrage.  I want to be upset, I do. I mean the fact that Kathy Griffin hired an attorney because she believes the Trumps are going after her and dooming her career - because she hired a photographer to take

Stuff I Haven’t Posted to Facebook

As some of you may know, I'm taking a break from social media. Specifically Facebook because that's where I waste most of my time. It's only been 3 days, but it feels like forever. I miss everyone and yet I'm really happy staying away. I have had to pop back in for work and have regretted it as soon as I even begin to scroll.

Taking a Social Media Break

I'm going to be taking a social media break. Mostly from Facebook since that is where I waste most of my time. I'm doing it for many reasons, the above mentioned wasting time is a big one, but I'm also doing it because it's not fun anymore. Social media has turned into the Mean Girls table in 7th grade and I hated it then and
