The Rhett House Inn (Beaufort, SC)

Enjoyed an afternoon in Beaufort, SC. We parked near the Rhett House Inn, and I’d taken this picture as we came back from downtown. Would love to stay here with my family one day! Check out the link at the bottom of my picture!

Interesting observation?

Reading ingredients for cleaning my house siding at Home Depot. The purpose of the image? I don’t have one except I wanted to share it because I thought it was funny, and I’m hoping it will draw attention to my post!

I recently posted four poems on my other WordPress site, Daddy Moon Planet, which I recently started posting to. The first two poems are maybe darker themed, but rated PG (if there is such a rating for poetry). The second two poems are lighter.

What I discovered is that I received likes for what I considered the darker material and nobody is viewing the lighter stuff.

In reflection, I wonder if people found the first two poem titles (Murder and Bit my Lip) more interesting than the second two (Star and Tent Condensation). I believe I may have just answered my own question.

I actually don’t know very much about poetry. I just like to write. Sometimes it comes out as a song I play my guitar to. Sometimes it comes out as a story or what I’m calling a poem. In all actuality, what I write might well be what people dub as bad poetry, but that’s OK because I mostly just like to jot down things driven by my creative impulses.

I actually just deleted my Star post and changed my Tent Condensation post to Tent Rain (maybe that will help!)

Does anyone have any advice? And/or have you ever experienced something similar?

UPDATE: My 2019 Social Media Experiment!!!

Hello! So, I haven’t written anything for a very long time. I’m actually not sure where the year has gone – only that it’s been quite challenging. Good, I like challenges, so never-mind about that – let’s talk about my social media experiment!

If you don’t know already, I had decided to discontinue social media for this 2019 year; to include Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Looking back now, I smile at an update I made (as a reply to my original post) because I was only a month in. At the time, I’d felt like that was a pretty big deal…a whole month!

So, how’s the experiment going, now that we’re nearing October? I’m happy to say that I’m still on track: Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are no longer part of my life. While it is tempting to get back on Twitter, I haven’t gone there. More than anything, I like not compulsively checking up on my old social media feeds. You really don’t realize how much it has you until you step away from it.

My 2019 Social Media Experiment!!!

Still going strong! Re-posted with a comment at the end of this post!

Fee-Fi-Photography

So, I recently decided to remove my social media apps (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) from my phone for one week. Why? I wanted to see if I noticed any positive changes in that short amount of time. Also, I allowed myself to check my social media, via my computer, in the evening.

What was the outcome? Well, to begin with, I engaged with my family a lot more, read more, listened to more music…

I played my guitar more, read most of a new book, found I was more creative, and checked in less and less on my social media over the computer…

I revisited my WordPress for the first time in a long time and am writing this, now!

Lastly, my initial experiment was so revealing, I decided to delete my big social media time-wasters; to include Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

My new goal/experiment? I plan on experiencing a year without social media (with the exception of LinkedIn, as it’s more of a tool and career related).

I want to see what happens with this. I have a pretty good idea it will result in nothing but positive outcomes. I can’t think of a better time to begin something spectacular like this!

With that being said, may you have a great 2019 (if you’re reading this)!
