How Do You Use Social Media? A Guide To Establishing Your Online


 "I'm not joining Facebook!" Well, that's what I exclaimed when I first was introduced to the social network. Eventually, I decided to join anyway. I didn't want to join because I thought it was a government ploy to trap people and gain access to their information. I thought of it like it was literally "The World Wide Web", so to speak. I took it literally. However, now I realize that it is an open Wilderness for business opportunity and self-sufficiency. Anyone can share their deepest most personal thoughts and opinions... 'Comment', 'Like', and 'Share'; This is the objective and is what keeps a businesses SEO, or a persons popularity with fans, or even making new friends who can be potential future business contacts. Sharing your ideas generating response from users that are interested in your opinions. Commenting, Liking and Sharing as you go throughout your day. The main objective is to Share your interests and Share and comment on others posts. But How Do You Use Social Media?

What's my purpose? Do I have a Brand yet? What message am I conveying? Are the things I have to say important? Can people relate to my opinion? How can I keep up with what's Trending in the areas of interest to me and others? 

These are just a few of the things you have got to consider when sharing on a social network. What IS your purpose? Do you have one? Most people just join a social network just to join, but they really don't have a reason why. At first it may seem like a cool thing to do and a cooler place to make friends and share some stuff. But then you will have to consider what exactly are you saying. Are you just posting your thoughts and feelings, when people see your posts do they just 'scroll' by and you don't get 'likes'. This can happen you know, and some people get discouraged from the 'lack of contact' and 'response'. Or it could have a negative impact and you begin to receive wired contacts who really don't have anything better to do but 'chat' all day. If you want to call That The World Wide Web you can. Beware of Perverts... They are Rampant.  And they take up valuable time and Space. Meaning 'your friendslists' can get filled with the wrong , that can take up space and they can Really Piss you off.

Note: You are allowed 5,000 friends on Facebook and unlimited followers. Unlike Google+ in which you can have unlimited friends, followers and contacts.

What's the big deal about Sharing?

Ever hear that old Adage that goes "SHARING IS CARING"? Well, let me tell you now that it Is... Sharing is 60% of social media... Its how businesses advertise their business and how new recording artists get their music heard. Also how posts go viral.

Why Do People Love To Travel?


     Vacation!!! When I hear that word I get this tingle of excitment that makes my heart patter. I love vacations!!! Not just to 'get out the house' either. When I go on vacation It's usually a spontaneous effort.
     So spontaneous that Its almost Never planned. I'm talking about at least a two day notice. For a decision on where to go, and to make the necessary arrangements. I'm usually gone for an average of five to seven days, and I usually take a few members of my family for company.
     Also, Its about once a year depending on what I feel like at the time the decision is made to go. Like the time I took my family to Las Vegas, Nevada. We had so much fun that we actually moved there. So we could be closer to the things that made our wonderful vacation as fun as it was.
     Yep! We moved here all right. It was the perfect place to settle and use as a "Permanent Vacation" Spot, so-to-speak. Everything a person could enjoy on a vacation is here... I suppose that We just wanted to be closer to the action.
Now, when I think about 'Our Journey', I recall all the "real" fun and the laughs that we had on our way. Both trips to Vegas from Los Angeles, California, there and back and our relocation trip to Vegas were an experience that neither I my children or husband will ever forget.
     Not everything went according to plan and there were a few inevitable mishaps that occurred that were Bound to happen. Perhaps its because we didn't really have any prime directive, meet up a plan, or an agenda. In fact, once we arrived, we split up because we all had separate interests. It was kind of hard to get organised. When it came time to leave, we had to look for each other and some of us didn't get to do what we wanted. Another reason we moved out here. In any case, it was fun nonetheless. 'Things Happen...'
     It was Really fun on our way, in between and on our way back to L.A. Who knows, where our next vacation will be. But I Do know that the time that we spent on journeys together as a family were the mist valuable and I wouldn't trade that experience for anything. The bonding was special and reinforced our relationship as a family together. ❤

"The reason why people love to travel, its not in order to reach the desitination but to enjoy the pleasures of the journey."

It's Trippy Tuesday! A Great Day... Not So Bad Afterall!

     It's Trippy Tuesday! Everyday we go through a multitude of feelings sometimes experiencing several feelings as a response to daily life challenges. Moreover, throughout an average day we are expected to 'just deal with them' hahahaha! To some it comes easy, for others it doesn't.
     Trippy Tuesdays are one way to share our weird experiences and talk about 'What Trips Us Out'. We can actually share our crazy moments on a whole host of social media forums. I like Snapchat as a great platform to get those 'spontaneous' trippy moments out there on this roller coaster called life! When you share your posts spuce them up to make Yourself Proud!
     Getting a little laughter in is the objective. The end results are usually hilarious. Leaving a smile on not only yoyr face but the viewers as well. 😀 Have Fun and Have a Great Trippy Tuesday!

My Personal Opinion: Concerned With The State Of Humankind

Tupac said it best when asked how he feels being a rich man in this world... He said something to this effect. "I'm very uncomfortable... How can I be comfortable"?  There's No way in the world people should be starving to death when there are other people like Donald Trump sitting on $billions and trillions of dollars and comfortable in their own skin.

My opinion is... If rich people REALLY 'parted with their wealth', beginning in their own communities working 'outward', then an impact can be made.
Also stepping away from this, to something else, but has the same importance, if people would stop being 'carnal', or stop putting themselves in danger their will be no poverty...
The problem lies with the understanding that "people don't know their own value and act like animals...
Let me explain... Men and women alike behave as though they 'cannot' wait to have sex. The results of having Sexual intercourse are pregnancy. In other words, if you have sex there's a possibility of you getting pregnant. Yes men get pregnant to. When they impregnate a women that's their seed, the women carries. Only an 'idiot' would think that they didn't have anything to do with the pregnancy or blindly convince themselves that its not theirs.
Anyway, 99% of the time, its the man initiating the invitation to sex by making contact with a every girl his privacy jumps for.  Even Animals have better sense when it comes to self control.
Sex shouldn't be the priority. Shouldn't be secondary either. With sex comes much responsibility. Plus its to be shared with 'married' couples... Its not something to be 'triffled' with.

Now, I look at poor children and think to myself, " they have bad parents... People who thought only of themselves and only of their own temporary satisfaction. Whether it was consensual or not. I see that even now, with certain persons whom I have met online have confessed to me unknowingly first their intentions, (sex), and then in the very same conversation, tell me they need help or are hungry... Only After I convince them that I'm not talking to them for sex, that is... But for establishing a 'friendship'. Some are stubborn others agree and change their approach.

Nevertheless, in general, people don't have a sense of self-value. They think that all we are here for is to "live 'freely' cause its the only one you have"???   Wait a minute... Think about that for a second...  Then look at what its gotten you...  People are REALLY suffering out there and I PERSONALLY think its because of this "Live Free" bullshit. Yeah "live free, die hard" you and everyone that you're responsible for in the future. You take these too seriously, you end up with a generation of starving outcasts and prison inmates. For one reason or another...

Then desire for sex is 'over-rated' and people REALLY need to 'get a grip'. They risk the possibility of producing unwanted children which is another problem all its iwn but us a direct result of sexual intercourse. Not only poverty but death too as a result.

However, there are those that manage to maintain their dignity and raise their children to adulthood dealing with 'the struggle'. Moreover, taking matters into their own hands by taking responsibility for their actions. They manage to provide for their offspring by any means.

Yet there are Still those who give up way too soon and give their children away fearing that they cannot provide for them. Then there us that question that hovers above and never questioned... Why have sex if you are not ready to deal with the consequences. Education has nothing to do with it. Because sex is a natural basic instinct, and no matter how much you talk to, preach, divert, mention, avoid or beat it into, a person will eventually develope 'those feelings' and eventually get exposed to the culprit... So what does a person do to get around all of this? How can this put an end to poverty? How many people don't care? Who can be blamed for anothers mistakes or lack of caring about a choice made? How can one make 'the right choices' in 'todays' world.

My opinion is that if a person wants to make positive change they must First recognise the fact that you cannot make people change. You can only work on yourself and live the example you are trying to convey. No matter how hard it gets. By your example, changes can be made. No it doesn't mean give away all your accumulated wealth. You worked hard for it. But it does mean to help those that 'have no mind' to 'develope a mind'. Give them ideas to self sustain. And personally assist them as needed. Give a man some fruit you give them only temporary gratification. Teach a man to grow his own fruit, you give them permanent wealth beyond measure. Money cannot solve all woes, in fact the 'lack of' and the 'abundance of' of it does. Also, the same with sex. Sex doesn't have to be a priority in a relationship, it doesn't 'make' the relationship work nor does it complete it. In fact, it can be the main cause of suffering, starvation, sickness, disease and death. It Must be 'handled with care' and should not be a priority.

These are just a few of my thoughts and there are no beneficial answers or  immediate solutions to poverty. But I am certain that the 'disrespect' for sexual intercourse is an underlying cause for the worlds... No Humankinds poverty issues.

 If you have an opinion drop it down below. I'd like to hear what everyone thinks. Am I too harsh? Does this make sense? Do you agree or disagree?
And if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Concerned With the State of Humankind,

Mother's Day Weekend 2016 At Floyd Lamb Park

     Today was a great day. To begin with, all of my children were with me which is rare in general. Since they are all adults and have families and children of their own. It's rare in any case that we are all in one place at the same time. We had lots of fun at Floyd Lamb Park here in Las Vegas, Nevada. The animation is a collection of original photos that I took as Mother's Day 2016 progressed.
     But first I will share with you the gifts that I received from my children. Robert gave me a dozen red roses and some money. Monique took me out... Twice, Jasmine and Jamal and Monique chipped in to buy four planters, four packages of yellow flower seeds, (Gladiolas, Zinnia and two packages of two different breeds of Marigolds), a pair of new gardening gloves, a shovel and two large bags of soil, right on time for Spring. I wasted no time and sowed them right away. It seems like God was watching me  because it rained immediately after my chore was completed. I left the pots outside to receive their first taste of life giving water. I treated myself to some hair and beauty products.
     Anyway, today was a good day. I had mist of my grandchildren with me. They had so much fun Its a miracle in itself that they're asleep as I write and have been for quite some time now. It was a peaceful and it is now a peaceful evening.
My son Robert chatting with some locals. I decided to just photograph this cute but bold pair of brave and hungry ducks.

At the fishing grounds. There's a 3 fish catch limit. You can get a fishing license from your local Walmart. That's what I'll be doing the nexttime I come to this Lovely park.

At the edge of the lake... Well the lake where we were. There are exactly four separate lakes at this park. Which is the main reason why their are so many ducks. At one point I counted 38 baby ducklings as they swam by. 

This pair really amused me...

Moe was taking a few photos of her own. 

I thought I was Photo bombing my other grandsons turns out that they weren't even paying me no mind. 

One of my little grandsons, Leon.

Moe wasn't quite ready but I took the shot anyway. 

              I went around taking random photo's to record moments. Just so I can post them here. 

Some were ready for my spontaneous photography activity.

Photo bombing my kids. I caught a few of them off guard.

All smiles. 

The drive took about 20 minutes to get there. It was well worth the drive. I was truly amazed at the sights.

My grandsons Byron and Bremont Love to sing. I love it when he sings too. Only problem was neither one of us knew the lyrics to the song we were singing. But we still had a good time.

Old friends lost, new friends made. Always moving upwards and forwards never backwards. Whoever can keep up, good for you.

The day was really a blessed day. I Love my family.
