It’s important to know what it means to be a good citizen, not just in the “real world” but also in our online world. After all, we probably spend as much time, if not more, engaging with our online communities as we do our local communities.

Everyone has a purpose. Full-stop. As we get into this topic, I want you to know that I believe you have a purpose in this world. What we are going to be talking about today is how to define your purpose for being on social media. Why is this important? Because going onto your social […]
Do you remember when you signed up as a Facebook or Instagram user? Admittedly, I have a vague memory of getting my Facebook account and no recollection at all of actually creating my Instagram or Twitter accounts. Even if you do remember your glorious entry into the realm of social media, you probably don’t remember […]

Though sometimes the two terms are used interchangeably, caregiving and caretaking are two very different things. Caregiving is providing care for a loved one by doing for them the things they cannot […]
Note: I originally published this post on my old blog on 06/29/2017. And exactly three years later it still rings true. I am re-posting here to show that after three years, actually 30+ years, I am still a work in progress. I am still trying to get it right while trying to remember that “right” […]
