More Big Brother In Our Social Media

I do NOT need to be spoon fed my Social Media!
I’m tired of Big Brother algorithm – how about you?

Pointe Shoes Punk Rock And Purl

Social media should be fun. I use Instagram mostly to market and interface with Knitters and Crocheters. This doesn’t mean that they are the only posts I want to see, or that I want to spend time scrolling endlessly to see tattoo or gardening posts. Even more, I don’t want to have to spend endless hours turning on notifications for everyone that I do want to see – who the hell wants a chorus of the Angelicus coming from their phone once our notifications are blown up?

Instagram announced they will be moving to the same algorithm-based method that Facebook uses. Essentially ‘they’ choose what posts you see – it’s not that great aunt Hilda is ignoring your posts. It’s that FB has ‘big brothered’ them, right down to the email function of FB.

If you’re an Instagram user, please consider signing the petition to keep it interference free. It’s…

Jeg ber dere.

Jeg ber dere.

Sometimes other writers speak my thoughts far more eloquently than I ever could.

Americana Injustica

Jeg ber dere …
If I had you alone for a while
I guarantee
I could make you smile –
A broad, wide grin
that’d stretch for miles…
You’d be my daddy,
I’d be your love child;
Under the covers
a universe so wild,
believing and seeing –
the other side
of the coin –
tender loin,
my need –
overrides;
beg and moan
pump and groan
til the tears come
to my eyes;
A stroke and you’re in,
Now the pleasure
begins,
You take away from me –
only to
give back in full,
again.
jeg ber dere…
Suction from
puckered lips
pressure from you
finertips,
deep inside,
now – HOLD
recognize…
take it back again,
I beg of you
“Sugar, please?…”
You decide then
to let me
finally win;
you get me
to heights I’ve never been;
Please? Come back in…
I’ve left the
knob unlocked,
my door’s…

Things You Need to Know About the Outgoing Introvert

THIS! It brilliantly explains many aspects of the ‘Social Introvert’ personality of which I am one – right down to the phone thing…

A Glimpse Inside A Troubled Mind

(I read this on a friend’s tumblr blog and felt it needed to be shared)
1. When we see you after a long day, we might be all irritable and not want to talk

It has nothing to do with you. Outgoing introverts, though still introverts at their core, often need to recharge after a large use of social energy. After a long day of dealing with people, our social batteries are drained and we need to unwind and recover, usually alone.

2. We’re charming creatures and can be the life of the party, but…

You’ll be surprised how much we actually live in our heads. People often confuse us for extroverts, but we’re too introspective and over-think too much to be one.

3. If we like you, we really like you.

We don’t waste our time with people we’re not completely crazy about. If we agreed to go on…

mirror, mirror ….

❤ ❤ and **hugs**, pretty pictures and syrupy memes – don’t mean a bloody thing. Definitely don’t make one a good person and don't substitute for actually BEING a decent human.
'Tis the season to do, not just post and Vogue.

jimibodansko

go ahead,
write about anything you want
as long as it is nice and sweet
and compliments your reputation

wiping out at least fifty percent of reality,
let that part of ” the me generation ” embedded in your existence
crack mirrors in half when you ask the question
most everybody is sick and tired of ….

and ” no “,
you are not the fairest of them all.

Patricia Randolph’s Madravenspeak: Wolf persecution is another tragedy of the commons

Please don’t click by Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
Step up and call your senators. Contact information is in this reblog post.
Wolves are not the enemy. Stupidity and misinformation are.

“It is imperative that wolf delisting language, along with other harmful policy riders that weaken the Endangered Species Act, are kept out of upcoming government funding negotiations.” ~ Howling for Wolves alert.

Wolves are again the target of blood lust. This time riders are being attached to a must-pass federal budget deal. They throw Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Wyoming wolves off the Endangered Species List, permanently, and bar the courts from protecting them. The courts have been the only check and balance on good ol’ boy trophy-killing of wolves. The riders authored by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., endanger the authority of and scientific standards set by the Endangered Species Act as a safeguard for survival of species.

Please network the urgency of making calls to Johnson (202-224-5323 or via his website) and Tammy Baldwin (202-224-5653 or via her website
