I Know What You've Been Up To

I recently met a friend for lunch whom I hadn't seen for over 6 months.  I say I "hadn't seen" her, but in today's wonderful world of technology, that wasn't true, of course.  I "see" her all the time on social media.

For this reason, and many others, can I say that I love social media? <3

I love that I can keep up with my family and friends daily on Facebook including both of my elderly grandmothers.

I love that I made all kinds of new blogger friends doing Instagram Challenges for which I have posted over 600 pictures in less than 7 months.

I love that I can rant and rave about the injustices of the world on Twitter and all my tweeps totally understand me.

I love that I can Link-In to someone I've never met 30 minutes before our business meeting at Starbucks so I can see what he looks like and I don't have to awkwardly eye each person walking in the door while I'm waiting.

I love the hypnotic 6 second videos my daughter posted on Vine of her and her sister eating cupcakes at 2 am in their Disneyland hotel room.

I love my on-line Pinterest scrapbooks. I love reading everyone's blogs! 

I love my newest social media site, Next Door, where I'm getting to know neighbors I have never spoken to in the 15 years we've lived in our neighborhood.  We are going to have an epic National Night Out this year!

I'd love to connect to you if we are not already connected!  You can usually find me as Denise Barkhurst.  I love for everyone to know what I've been up to!


  1. Reminds me of our relationship :-)

    1. You are so right, but we need an in person happy hour!

  2. So you must be pretty sick of me then. Facebook, twitter, instagram, sitting across the table from you.
