As with all things, we get old. Some old things are great old like fine wine, vintage cars, model T’s, Fisher Price toys from my childhood. Some old things are useless-a flip phone? (hard to believe I thought that was cooler than these touch things!), sweater dresses, typewriters (bonus ,though, for Hollywood like their use […]

Thank You, Social Media

I spoke with a client yesterday, who, given his age, doesn’t “get” social media.  I hear it from many clients and my parents.  “I don’t know what Twitter is and I wouldn’t know how to tweet.  Snapchat?  What’s the point?” My parents refuse to have a FB account and I’m not allowed to post any […]

The Power of Words: How One Man’s Two Words Created Havoc

Love, Michelle  Two words.  Two simple words drawn in flour across the windshield of a 1968 Valiant almost caused a break up, a canceled camping trip, and the loss of a precious friendship.

Writing for Social Media and Websites

Social Media is the sharing of information and interaction with others through online sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, Pinterest, and Google Plus, just to name a few of the more popular sites.

In any case, we had the opportunity to have a forum to share with our peers. And in the end, our peers grew curious and asked us many questions about what we shared, at which point sharing became an interaction.
