  1. Very good ponderings ๐Ÿ™‚ I now also want to try maple syrup in my brownies….or maybe I just feel like making brownies now ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ And I’m glad 30 years ago doesn’t seem like that long ago, sine that’s the era of some of your sisters ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜

  2. Valid points you make for sure, as a blogger i recognise that fact that social media is important, but I also feel that i do not spend enough time on it. However, I do not like to spend alot of time on it, as i think it is not good for me, makes me angry how some people are so rude behind the comfort of thier screens. I used to love going to a library and reseraching things of interest to me, the internet has now taken that away and i am sad about it, but also grateful.
    btw, I would have left out the maple syrup…. can’t stand the stuff! but glad you enjoyed your brownies ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I agree with you! Social media is super important to grow your blog but I don’t prefer to spend my time on it. I obviously enjoy writing my blog but I struggle with the social media side. You couldn’t taste maple syrup them, so your might have been alright! Thank you for reading and commenting with your feedback!

    1. I can appreciate that. In my calculus and statistics classes I never actually learned how to do the problems, rather we were given handouts, and spent class time memorizing the calculator steps for finding the answer. I hated it. Thanks for reading!

  3. It’s definitely something to think about. As with a lot of things, I think the internet is a good thing but if you use it too much, it can harm you. I’m sure that the internet might be making some people less sociable in public because they have the crutch of internet friends but it also helps a lot of people who dont know how to reach out and lets them know they’re not alone. It’s definitely something to not to over do

  4. Great post. I am always thinking about media as being a blogger is all media driven. I went to school for mass media arts/pr and even from 10 years ago media is different. It is exciting and growing and I am going to keep up with the trend to stay abreast in my field on what to do to make sure I am doing my job effectively.

  5. Agree with you on so many levels! On one hand it’s amazing how info at hand is now a normal privilege we enjoy, but at the same time, it comes with the responsibility to consume wisely. Otherwise it gets really toxic or even bad for us.

    Writing on my own site, it’s my goal, too, to contribute only “good noise” but many times I catch myself thinking if I am doing a good job at that goal. Either way, I just keep writing and it’s nice to read about writers like you who think the same ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Im glad your brownies turned out well with maple syrup. I will put that in my memory bank for next time im out of vanilla! In some ways it is amazing that we can have the answer to any question at our finger tips and in other ways the joys of going to the library, meeting people, finding the other books at the same time (or other recipes) etc are a thing our children wont need to experience

  7. It is really convenient nowadays if you want to search for something. But media has pulled us away from relationships. You will see lots of people looking at their phones than talking with each other.

  8. Research is more convenient now that it was when I was a child. “Google it!” makes things so much easier. However, I still feel that there is a certain nostalgic factor to stepping in side a library, searching index cards and finding the book related to your query. Kids today sure have it easy, but they don’t know what they are missing.

  9. Thanks for letting us know about the brownies, because I did wonder! ๐Ÿ™‚ And of course, now I want to make my own with maple syrup! I also routinely check online for recipes, substitutions, and related information. I know I spend a lot of time online, too, because of blogging, Facebook, my freelance work, and research!

  10. I will admit I spend waaaaay too much time on social media, but itโ€™s also a part of what I do. I went to college to study telecommunication and that was back in 1996 and I can tell you, that definition has changed (expanded) on what it truly is all about! Funny, I recall my mass media classes and think of the same questions you do! But I do recall using the library and that thing called the โ€œDewey Decimal Systemโ€! I recall going online for the first time or entering my first chat with people in AOL Instant Messenger… and waiting for the modem to connect! Now, I feel old after admitting all of that! ๐Ÿ˜‚
