Welcome back to 20 Days of Chill, today's prompt is
Let's get social
Isn't this what us bloggers have been doing all along this month?
How convenient is this, the assignment for today's Ultimate Blog Challenge is
Share what you have found - in terms of blogs of our fellow writing challenge heroes.
What's more, this popped up in my Facebook Memories just this morning. Remember the Dolly Parton Challenge two years ago?
Let me start by sharing ten of my blog buddies' links, as always, in alphabetical order:
So blogging and connecting with my fellow participants has been going great for me this month.
I have to say though, over time my enthusiasm for social media in general has waned for the following reasons:
They're a gigantic time thief. It's not that I didn't know that from the beginning, but once you open that Facebook app, you keep scrolling, liking and commenting, and before you know it, half an hour or more is over.
While I made great online friends, some of whom I actually met in real life, most connections are superficial. Social media are a wonderful means to keep in touch and see what people are up to: vacation, job, new home, kids, grandkids, but you barely ever talk.
Of course the way people present themselves is embellished. Sometimes it's downright ridiculous. If you know these folks in person, you will know what's really going on in their lives, and all you can do is shake your head and feel sorry for them.
The decency and the tone in Facebook Groups leave a lot to be desired. Just because you're not facing the person doesn't mean you shouldn't be respectful.
There are certain types of people who annoy me on social media: Attention seekers who will post dramatic statements. Friends will be worried and ask what's going on - there will be no explanation. Then there's the ones who have no clue but a lot of opinion, and finally those who keep asking for votes and shares and sh** but will never reciprocate favors.
That being said - Let's keep in touch, hahaha!
Since Colin tested positive, we're doing the quarantine thing. I went from "sitting in the living room chair with my notebook on my lap" to this:
Too many cables, but I'm pretty pleased otherwise. Can't wait to get to my break room...
