Media, Social or Secluded ?
Sorry for the slightly off topic ranting.
I know in the past I often say how I love Seattle, today reality may be setting in, I probably couldn’t live there full time. It has been very rainy so far this Season, leading to depression everywhere. Actually Seattle gets less rain on average than we do here in Upstate NY. They get a bad rap as the Rainy City.
My normal working day consists of getting coffee and watching The Today Show as I slowly come to life. Since The Today Show goes on for a few hours I watch as I am working. Steals and Deals is one of my favorite parts , I try not to actually buy anything. As a fellow New Yorker it is my duty to see what people think is News and what my next hurtle is from the Media Circus regarding Travel Deals or Nightmares that I can expect to impact my day.
As a Dream Maker/Travel Planner , I offer actual support to my clients before and throughout their Journey. There is a good reason not to buy your Travel from the same place you find Toilet Paper. It is always a challenge to acquire reliable new clients. In today’s ever changing media world , Newspapers, Bulletin Boards , Radio and even email are not as common. The problem with email is we all receive so much junk that we throw away the bad with the good for lack of time to sort through. The normal advertising outlet has become Facebook or Instagram. If I still lived in Florida I could always have a Banner made and pulled behind a Plane to advertise my business.
Personally I get annoyed when I find interesting things to do that happened last week. I always pick RECENT to search first and it’s still old news. Now it has come to the attention of some that we are actually NON Social due to Social Overload. All tools have their uses and limits. Most of us are guilty of being tied to our phone. In a society that works 24/7 and expects the same of others , we have created our own problem.
The point being that there are now Cell Phones for limiting Social Exposure. The phone is to actually Talk or Text , according to the promoters on Today. Someone is getting rich reinventing the wheel. Before you know it people will want to grow things and raise their own food. Oh, wait… live off the grid.
As the saying goes “Everything Old is New again” or ” Take time to smell the Roses” and we still do not learn from our mistakes.
