I Wish My Social Media Feeds Were in Chronological Order

I'll admit it. I like things in chronological order. I would rather have a deluge of everything in chronological order than a curated gathering of items I want to read out of order. I'm okay with content wading. That's sort of the beauty of the Internet. You end up stumbling upon gems of information you didn't even know you wanted to see in the first place. (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram... are you listening?) ...more

Trolls, flamers, keyboard warriors, spammers, online scammers, hackers - these are just some of the many people I don't want to meet online.

Facebook Memories Plague Me

I manage two Facebook accounts; one is my personal page, the other, my husband’s clown business. On most days, on both accounts, Facebook dutifully greets me with this message: “Galina, we care about you and the memories you share here. We thought you'd like to look back on this post from 1 year ago.” (Or 9 years ago.)” ...more

That Time I Friend-Zoned Social Media

Self care is the cornerstone of our personal existence. Without it, we crumble. Without it, we break. In this uber political climate, where everyone has an opinion and everyone needs to be heard, it's so easy to get sucked into other people's point of view in a way that can drain the life out of you. We have all gotten into a Twitter war with an opposing view that enraged us. We have given away our power in a debate over (insert issue here). I can't even count the number of times I let my blood boil over a comment that came from an obscure avatar of a cat. ...more
Nice post! I feel like it's so easy to fall into the trap of spreading oneself too thin, ...more
