Just think if you could see the data that is flying all around you in this digital world we live in. That information contains a lot of messages, information, applications and other stuff. Don’t you wish you could see that data to see what all is going around you. We do live in a high tech world with all sorts of things blazing by us every day.
It’s amazing how much digital stuff we generate over the years. Documents, pix, video, audio and more. I am discovering I should have gone through a bunch of stuff but like a hoarder I can’t seem to get rid of anything. A lot of stuff I have found has been with me for over 10 years. We all have things we hold on to both on our computer and then in our house. The one thing is that you need to find a place to store it all.
I am in the process of uploading documents and other things I have done over the years to Google Drive. I needed a easy to use archival system and with the inexpensive (cheap) options the folks at Google provides I chose that route. I want all my documents available anywhere and with a wide variety of devices. It also means freeing up space on my computer. There comes a time when you have a fresh start with your computing and I am wanting to do that. I have pictures backed up online too with Flickr and some with Google Plus.
I have been doing some maintenance on the blog today. The mass post editor is a great way to add tags to a bunch of posts all at once so you can organize your posts and I tagged a couple hundred pictures to make them easier to find using a link on the sidebar. I got rid of the Facebook “badge” on the sidebar too, if you wanna see my Facebook there is a link to it under my bio. I am not sure what else I am going to do to it….I love my theme because it makes it look like the type of blogs I started with. I did change my blog picture this past week.
Has anyone had some Tumblr follower management issues lately? It’s frustrating when you get followed and the person who just followed you isn’t on your list.
Whenever I see a fellow blogger I think I might have things in common with I will follow them. Over the years I have made connections with some pretty good people who have real and interesting lives.
I have met people on Tumblr, Multiply (a deceased social blogging platform) and Twitter from all over the world who share a love for blogging and that is awesome. It’s kind of like having pen pals from back in the day except its interactive and provides instant gratification.
It’s pretty rare that someone is asked to un-follow a fellow blogger and it happened to me yesterday. We aren’t like Facebook where you have to agree to be friends to follow one another. Of course I respected that blogger and un-followed them.
Tumblr is a place where complete strangers can find community and connections in a very global way. We all have things that bring us together and of course differences but perhaps that is what makes this whole thing great. Things are set up here for people to follow one another and to make connections.
If you find me to be boring or too tame I am not offended if you need someone with more spark and spice. All I can be is myself and offer you a person who is trying to make sense of life and to establish connections with like minded people. Thank you all for sticking and staying.
Isn’t the point of following a blog is that you want to make a connection with a fellow blogger that you might have something in common with or a curiosity about ?
