Although I nailed a new calendar to the wall a few weeks ago, I basically forgot that the year actually changed. I’ve caught myself scratching out 2012 on checks, grade reports, and journal entries. Multiple times. Every day.
I’m so behind.
And not just in writing the correct year… I finally joined the 21st century of social media! Most of you are already pros at using these sites, but for those of you stuck in the Stone Ages like me…
Twitter. No, you don’t actually chirp like a bird… (But I’d be a nightingale if that were true!) It’s a place to share ideas, information, or insights in 140 characters or less. Short, sweet, and simple. I’m @FoodsforSoul, and you can click HERE to follow me for more of my quirky ideas and food adventures!
Pinterest. Time to give away all of your old pushpins and paperclips. This site is the ultimate online corkboard! Pinterest is perfect for organization, inspiration, and motivation. Every photo you “pin” onto your boards comes with a link back to the original source and space to type captions. Click HERE to follow me and get a sneak preview on foods I’m planning to make!
Instagram. Remember the days of Polaroid pictures? You’d click the shutter, grab the print that the camera spat out, and wave it around until—voila!—the image magically appeared. Speed up that process by 100x and convert it to digital, and you’ve got Instagram. It’s an easy way to edit and instantly share photos from your smart phone, complete with captions, comments, and tags. I’m foodsforthesoul, and you can click HERE (better if from your phone) to see all of the dishes I eat too quickly before I can blog about them!
