Do You Have an App for Your Life?

Our lives become increasingly digitalized with our smartphones and tablets. We are now a mobile culture.

Text messages and emails fly from our fingers. Memories of family events and vacations dance across our computer screens and smartphones. We can have face-to-face conversations real-time with anyone anywhere from our phones.

Behind the scenes of our digital life, the apps grind away connecting and communicating us to the outside world.

Do you have an app for your life?


On Getting Back into the Water . . .

I think I’m going to get back into the water. About a year ago, I started writing on line and learning how to use social media to communicate with other people.

In one of my early posts, “So How’s the Water?”, I reflected on what it felt like to put metaphorical little floaty things on my arms and jump into the deep end of the social media pool. I wrote regularly for about eleven months. Then I got a little burned out.

I got out of the water and decided to lay by the pool for a while.

I am ready to jump back in the water now.

Here we go.


So How’s the Water?

I jumped into the deep end of the social media pool about a month ago. I put little floaty thingies on my arm, took a deep breath, and plunged into the water. At first, I kept close to the edge of the pool making certain I was always within arm’s length of my mentors.

Gradually, I moved away from the edge and practiced my social media dog paddling. I’m just keeping my nose above water but I’m having a lot of fun.

I am learning new things about myself and the world.

I want to challenge you to learn with me. Since it is social media, I need you to help make it social! Read on, this is more than just a commercial.
