On the same day that Twitter suspended Trump for 12 hours, I logged on for the first time in months. Feels kind of ironic. I've had a Twitter account forever, but rarely use it. You wouldn't know this if you looked at my Tweet count (1,389), but that's only because I set up automatic blog … Continue reading Coupscrolling on Twitter
I just now realized, this very moment, that when my friend/business associate Erik asked me at lunch the other day if I'd ever held a bitcoin in my hand after I joked about paying for the meal with the cryptocurrency, he was messing with me. Because, digital currency. Duh. It only took me 51 hours … Continue reading Early Adopter?
I was out walking on my lunch hour yesterday, phone in hand, which I was checking periodically. There is nothing unusual about this; I often look at my phone while walking, either to track my workout progress on MyFitnessPal or queue up my camera for potential photo opportunities. There were lots of people out and about, and … Continue reading Oh, Sheila
Instagram just unveiled a new feature: the ability to toggle between multiple accounts. I’ve been wanting this for years! My first order of business? Creating a work account. I have been pushing the idea of a corporate Instagram account to my superiors for some time. I think IG is a natural place to showcase all … Continue reading 23 Mountains
Buying an Island
You know how you sometimes hear about billionaires buying their own islands? I've decided I need to do that, and have implemented a two-part plan to make it happen. Turns out it's a surprisingly simple and straightforward process, too: Become a billionaire. Buy an island. Easy-peasy, right?! I don't know why more people aren't going this … Continue reading Buying an Island
Wildfire on a Windy Day
Today was just an average, ordinary, run-of-the-mill Thursday. I took a walk before work. Knocked out a few articles. Grabbed lunch with Tara. Started a rumor that the owner of the company's wife was expecting a baby. You know, the typical daily grind. OK, in all fairness, my wife and I hadn't met up for lunch … Continue reading Wildfire on a Windy Day
Happy Birthday Two You
Monday was my birthday. Well, not really. But on Facebook it was my birthday - all part of a great social experiment, if you will. Three days later, I'm not sure how to feel about the results. On the one hand, I have a lot of well-meaning friends who serenaded me with heartfelt birthday wishes. … Continue reading Happy Birthday Two You
See You in 364 Days, Chewbacca
I am so glad it's May 5th. Not because I have a special affinity for Cinco de Mayo (though, hello nacho bar at work!). It's just that, if I see one more lame May the 4th be with you post on social media, I am going to scream. It's not that I'm anti-Star Wars. I like Yoda as much … Continue reading See You in 364 Days, Chewbacca
My Mom’s on Facebook! Well, Kinda…
This weekend, I was bored. So I did what any self-respecting adult would do in order to pass the time: I created a fake Facebook account for my mom, and whiled away the hours posting witty commentary that could only come from her (well, allegedly). I even "liked" her favorite things (Say Yes to the … Continue reading My Mom’s on Facebook! Well, Kinda…
Dig The Pop-Up Camper!
If you're a fan of Instagram or have a Facebook account, you're probably familiar with Throwback Thursday. Or "Hashtag TBT" as the social media savvy like to refer to it. #TBT is a fun little activity in which you share a photo from your past. There are no strict guidelines or rules to what you … Continue reading Dig The Pop-Up Camper!
