Before I chat about social media, I’m having fresh corn, a tomato tart, and eggplant with breadcrumbs for dinner tonight after my foray to the farmer’s market. Oh, and fresh blackberries for dessert – yum! The eggplant, I slice, dip it in egg and shake it in a bag with some flour and italian breadcrumbs. Then fry it in a pan with a little olive oil. A great way to try eggplant if you’re not a fan.
I’ve been thinking a lot about social media lately. Who uses it and why. It seems like today we’re all on in some way shape or form. As a writer who left corporate america, I find it a great way to connect with new folks when I need a break from work.
But at the same time, I tend to “go dark” for days or even a few weeks at a time. Where I have friends who check Facebook every time their phone dings. I have all sound notifications turned off on my phone and check in a few times a day. How often are you on social media, which one is your favorite and why? I know some of you like blogs since you’re here – grins.
I’ll go first. My favorite, hands down is twitter. I tweet about all kinds of stuff – the Walking Dead being a particular fave of mine.
At best, I’m a sporadic blogger. As you know, I have a website here for Wicked Green Smoothies and there’s another one for my writing.
Vine is fun to create short little 6 second videos like today when it’s raining.
Instagram is great for sharing silly pictures. You can follow me on Instagram if you’re so inclined.
I’m also on Pinterest where I post about healthy eating, products and styles I love, things inspiring the latest book and whatever else catches my fancy.
Give me a shout out as to your fave and why. And if you like tomatoes, cheese & basil…tell me and I’ll post my tomato tart recipe.
Enjoy the weekend!
