So I think introductions are in order. (week 5)

It has occured to me that those of you who may read my blog do not know a thing about me or my blog other than what is in my profile. 

As my page already told you I am currently a student at the University of Central Oklahoma majoring in Business Administration.  Currently I am taking a class titled Digital Media and Content Marketing.

We are required to make a blog post a week related to social media and I am also going to attempt relate it to this blog.  I will also find the time to make posts that are more completely and directly related to the title of my blog as well as share photos of the things going on in my life that I think at least some may find interesting. 

Anyway now that we have that out of the way here is what I am thinking about related to social media right now. 

Believe it or not I have kept a blog before.  Back in the days when Myspace was actually the "cool" thing to be on, as many of you know it had a built in blog feature.  I would often chronicle the ridiculous adventures my friends and I had (these often took the form of picture blogs) with my writing and on occasion use it as an outlet for things I was feeling especially in the "rough times" in life. 

Since then and the decline of Myspace I really have not blogged about anything but lately I am wondering if that outlet for things I was feeling, good, bad, or indifferent, is something that I could again benefit from.

I am sure many of you reading have had similar experiences with blogging or with a more traditional journal you kept. 

If you would, share how you feel keeping that journal or blog helped you personally. 

Do you still keep up with your blog or journal? If you have done both which do you prefer and why?

Thats it for now God bless you as you start your new week,

Being a Child at Heart (week 4)

Being a dad at this stage in my life is quite interesting.  I am 23 and in my last year as a full time student at the University of Central Oklahoma and juggling all the different things in my life can be hard to do.  Who am I kidding I love it.  I have always loved children and now having my own is even better... They're so funny, when they begin to talk they tell us some of the most simple and honest things we will ever hear. 

I guess its their sweet innocence and ignorance of the world and nearly everything in it coupled with their infinitely large hearts for everyone and everything in their world that make them at times so sweet and so honest. 

As I think of all of the things that I grew up with and all of the new things that seem to come along daily nowadays I wonder what marvelous things our children will experience?

Will they still have Facebook pages loaded with pictures taken in the bathroom mirror?  What new things will they see, do, and create? 

Will they lose that heart of a child as a result of some of these things?

Or will we all go on as we have for centuries just with ever expanding technologies and new pathways of communicating with eachother?

Share your thoughts and I will see you all in another week!
