Reasons to Start Using Twitter

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

I’ve been behind on the twitter bandwagon, avoiding actually using twitter while it is slowly becoming more and more essential.  Twitter from the start seemed like it had limited reasons to use, that is until a massive list of people starting using twitter making it a more and more useful services.  The reasons that Twitter is becoming more useful is nearly the same as what happened with facebook.  At the start facebook seemed a bit nonessential, but as support began to grow, it became a service that all my friends were on, making me feel left out if I didn’t join.  Now twitter seems the same way.  Everyone uses it, and if you don’t use Twitter you feel left out.

Reasons to use Twitter
Twitter lets you write small comments throughout your day basically updating what you are doing.  It is essentially like status updates that you see on facebook.

Lots of support is already behind Twitter with many bloggers adding on a twitter feed on their blog, giving users a way to see what is going on in a more live fashion besides just updating with the blog.

Tech Republic came up with 11 reasons to use Twitter for busness, which includes both build network with transparency and trust  and the ability to gain exposure for a blog/site and gain potential readers.

Reasons to get a Second Job

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

You know I’ve been blogging the last year and never saw a reason to get a 9 to 5 job until recently.  When you blog. you end up spending most of your time couped up working on your blogging job, with no reasons to make contact with civilization.

Reasons to get a Second Job

1. You need to find friends

Finding friends without working can be difficult. Working automatically gives you a connection and a reason to talk to someone.  Some great jobs are social ones, where you get to talk to a lot of people. Try being a waiter, or working somewhere people your age work.

2. Get some extra experience

Finding another job in your related field can give you some extra experience in case whatever else you do goes sour. Try finding something remotely related to what you do.

3. Get out of the House

If you need a reason more than this to get a second job, I’m not sure what else there is.  Sometimes a second job is just good for giving you a distraction.  Keep in mind you can always quit, but that you are doing it just for pleasure.  Work and pleasure? It is possible as long as you find someone you like doing.

Conclusion on my Reasons to get a Second Job

Nothing is ever perfect, but getting a second job might help you get a new prespective on life, and give you something else to do.  The amount you get paid leads to financial security, but not always happiness.

Reasons to Take a Technology, Blogging Break

Sunday, September 7th, 2008

Technology is supposed to make our lives easier, but often without a break, technology can overwhelm us and even stress us out.  I’ve decided to take once a week technology break from technology and blogging and I’ve come up for numerous reasons why this is a good idea.

Reasons to Take a Technology, Blogging Break

1. Blogging everyday can be too much. I start losing focus during the end of the week, writing shorter, often worse posts.  A technology break can freshen me up and give me renewed energy.

2. Sometimes it’s hard to escape the connectedness of technology.  With my smart phone, I almost have some sort of internet access, and since my work is on the internet, it feels like I am always connected to work.  Using no technology for a day, gives me the peace and quite I need for a real days rest.

3. Enjoy the simple days.  100 years ago, we didn’t have the technology we had today.  Though it makes our lives easier, it often makes them busier, making us multitask more than ever before. Taking a break allows you to enjoy everything natural around you. Have you been to the park lately?

Overall taking a break from technology in general is a great way to gather your thoughts, renew yourself and take a little stress out.
