This is something different, but very helpful… especially if you like using Firefox.

One of my biggest gripes is that it’s sometimes hard to get things working after some of your computer programs make updates. I’ve had lots of issues with Windows 10 updates over the past calendar year, and luckily I’ve been able to fix some of them. The latest problem I had concerns Firefox, which is my preferred browser (I don’t trust Chrome because I don’t totally trust Google).

A few days ago Instagram announced that it was going to allow more people to business accounts which would give them the ability to schedule posts ahead of time, something that’s not allowed right now. I’ve subsequently read a lot of articles telling people it’s the best thing since sliced bread (not a direct quote lol).

I was thin once 🙂

As someone with 5 blogs who also writes for 2 others I don’t get paid for, I think I can speak about the issue of being overwhelmed by having too much exposure online. This time I’m not talking about the people who might view your content; I’m talking about your ability to keep up with all of it and whether it’s worth the effort.

About 2 years ago I wrote a post about fake accounts on social media where I addressed this concept of accounts following you on Instagram and Twitter and, if you decide to hook up with them, instantly dropping you after the fact. A lot of those accounts were fake to begin with, while some of the people are real but someone else is running them and doing the fake follow and drop on their behalf.

no fake
nothing fake here

It seems that things are worse off than that these days. My friend Jesan sent me a link from the New York Times talking about celebrities buying followers to pad their numbers so they look more impressive to the real people that follow them. After that I was talking to him and another friend named Terri about something called Tweetdecking (not the Twitter product) which involves groups of teens that charge people to get their posts retweeted so they look like they’re big time. I followed that up by sharing another article where my state, New York, is going to investigate a company sells Twitter followers by stealing the profiles of real people and setting up new accounts that look real.

For some reason I thought I’d written a post like this years ago, but the closest I could find was the first post I wrote in a blogging series I put together at the time, back in the days before people started adding images to their posts (which now has one) or even thought about things like copyright (now it’s copywritten) or share buttons. Because that’s the closest I have, and because I want to be helpful, I figure it’s time I put something like this together.


what could you write
about this shoe?

With nearly 1,800 articles on this blog and over 5,000 via all my blogs, blogs of others and a host of other things online, I’ve had to rely on my wits to come up with unique ideas all the time on a variety of topics. I’ve rarely had writer’s block (sometimes I’m just not in the mood to write; it happens), and that’s because of the 9 things I’m talking about below.

When I wrote my post last July asking if social media is causing our children to lose their compassion, I couldn’t have predicted anything like this kid (22 years old but still a kid) posting a video of a dead body from a suicide forest in Japan on YouTube. It wasn’t even that which was the worst part; supposedly once he saw it he started making jokes about it (I’ve refused to watch it but I feel like I know everything about it).

kids and social media

This is a story that, oddly enough got worse later on but for a much different reason. Although YouTube decided to suspend him (a week after he pulled the video himself from his channel), his subscribers jumped almost 3 million higher than the 15 million already following his antics. It turns out the majority of his fans are young kids who, for some “unknown reason” (bad parenting) can’t figure out why the overwhelming majority of us think showing a suicide victim’s body and making jokes about it is wrong.
