The following is a real internet exchange I witnessed on Twitter:

HandsomeModelDude: “Man…what a day!”
9:02p.m. via mobile

PretendIndustryGirl: “@HandsomeModelDude Awww – what happened?”
9:03p.m. via web

PretendIndustryGirl: “@HandsomeModelDude Babe, what is it? What’s wrong?”
9:04p.m. via web

PretendIndustryGirl: “@HandsomeModelDude Talk to me! OMG, what’s going on!”
9:06p.m. via web

HandsomeModelDude: “@PretendIndustryGirl I’m good – thanks. :-)
9:08p.m. via mobile

HandsomeModelDude: “Yoooo, some of y’all take internet “friends” a little too seriously. Stop & ask urself: have we ever even met in person?”
9:10p.m. via mobile Read more…

Where is Black Twitter? In the back of Twitter like the back of the bus

I first signed up for Twitter in 2006. I used it rarely as a means of contacting other bloggers. I left it alone for a while because all I shared was what I read in newspapers and my blog post. I didn’t like it at the time because in order to do such, I had to copy and paste, and that was time consuming. At first I followed other bloggers, but as the social outlet evolved, I began to follow less people and more news sources, publications and outlets. I really got involved when the tweet meme became prevalent and more common, allowing me to share what I read, as I did initially without actually going on twitter just by clicking on a little green button.

Twitter is a valuable tool and fits into the premonitions proffered by Gil Scott Heron when he orated that “You will not be able to lose yourself on skag and skip, /Skip out for beer during commercials, /because the revolution will not be televised.” For if there is to be another revolution, we have already seen the impact social media like twitter can play. In Egypt for example findings from the newly released second edition of the Arab Social Media Report by the Dubai School of Government provided empirical data that Twitter as well as facebook “abetted if not enabled the historic region-wide uprisings of early 2011.” Not to forget that use of social networking sites assisted in helping activist organize and bring attention to efforts that eventually led to the destruction of decades of autocratic rule in Egypt and Tunisia and publicity to public malcontent pertaining to the regimes in Syria, Libya, Yemen and Bahrain.

Some of you can relate. Some of you will have to imagine. But paint this picture in your mind. It’s the big game. The team is in the locker and they can feel the electricity in the air from the packed house of people waiting to watch. Some players are off on their own down on their knee saying a prayer. Some players are sitting still with their eyes closed with headphones on. Some players are getting their ankles tapes up by the trainers while a few other players are stretching and running in place to get their muscles warmed up. The office door opens and the Head Coach walks out with an evil grin and an intense focused look in his eyes. He calls the team together to take a seat and listen… Read more…

You’re driving… the car in front of you slows down and you automatically hit your signal to switch lanes and go around it. We do it all the time. You may or may not cross over the dotted lines when switching lanes but who cares? When ya gotta go, ya gotta go…

If you follow me on Twitter, then you probably saw my tweets announcing my Valentine’s Day Blog Series: Two Tales of Woe and One That Rocked.
This week, the second installment, but with a twist. Though my posts usually refer solely to romantic relationships, this one has elements of both. I was ready and prepared with my love-gone-awry tale when…well…you’ll see.

Without further adieu, I present “A(nother) Valentine’s Tale of Woe: Today I Got Dumped, And Other Fine Stories”.  Enjoy!

 I know. I did it to you again. I took a hiatus. I’ll fill you in on what the hell I’ve been doing in another post. BUT…while I was away…I see what YOU’VE been doing. You’ve been being an Internet Douche. On The Twidda, on Facebook, and especially on the Douche Tool De Jour: Instagram. And I don’t like it. Not. One. Bit.

So I want you to raise your kissy-face-picture-taking hand and take this pledge. Say it out loud, say it strong and proud! Read more…

How to Create Wealthy Habits – Part 1

Most people understand the saying that we are “creatures of habit.”  The part they don’t get, however, is that habits come in two forms: doing and not doing. Many of us can think of the things we actively do each day as habits which may be either good or bad.  But, when you don’t do the things you know you should be doing, then you are practicing the often unnoticed habit of simply not doing, which can be just as detrimental.  As I tell my clients often, “Stop telling me what you are trying to do.  You’re either doing or you’re not doing. There is no in between.”
So, if you aren’t practicing wealthy habits, then more than likely you are practicing un-wealthy habits. Once you acknowledge that there is no in between and begin to take action, you can move onward and upward. The choice is ultimately yours.
Here are a few ways to begin creating wealthy habits today: Read more…

10 Things you should NOT share or ask on social networks

August 27, 2011 Leave a comment

By Mrs Deveter
Hey Y’all:
Recently I have had two distinct experiences on facebook that caused me to pause. The first one was a  co-worker finding out about her deceased grandmother via facebook chat, the second was a former co- working asking if I was pregnant based on a picture I uploaded. Both of these in my opinion were out of order!
