Social media has changed how the world works in many aspects. Events in Cambridge can be heard in Tokyo the same day. The personal daily events of Joseph Gordon-Levitt can be found easily. And anyone can share his/her world with the world.
Take advantage of that. Tell your stories, show-off the amazing pictures you took yesterday, share your musical taste with others. Heard a funny joke the other day? Share it!
I read a joke today on the internet that I thought was hilarious, so I’ll share it with you (scroll down in the boxes to see the answer):
Yes, the joke is lame and yes, the answer isn’t a complete sentence. But it was funny! Here’s another one:
Now that you’re finished laughing (hopefully you laughed), I would like to share with you the songs that I currently have on repeat:
And here’s a photo that I absolutely love:
Do you see that tiny dot? That’s us. NASA’s Cassini spacecraft took this photo on July 19, 2013. Those rings belong to Saturn.
The point of this post is to get you into social media. Become an Instagrammer (but actually post meaningful photos), a Tweeter, a Facebooker, a Pinterester (I’m not really sure what the actual terminology is for people who use these sites). Sharing your world allows you to make connections with people who have similar interests. Establish a hashtag (#mynameiselise perhaps) for your group of peers, friends, co-workers, etc… When you guys share your world online, other similar folk will see, and who knows? Maybe they’ll want to join in on the fun. I tagged this blog post with “space” and “NASA” so that others interested in space will follow my blog. I have a lot of thoughts on the topic of space that I’d like to get out there, and the only way to get those ideas out there is to share my ideas.
Share your world (but don’t share too much)!
