Let’s take a minute to think back… Way back. I mean further back than your last #ThrowbackThursday post. Way before smartphones, laptops, walkmen, or even an alarm clock existed. Think back to a time when the invention of the wheel was a technological breakthrough. Did the elder cave people shun the younger, hipper cave people for using the wheel to transport items? I like to imagine so, because when you fast forward through time to 2016, people like you and I get harassed by elders about being on our phones all the time. We don’t go outside enough. We don’t appreciate life. Apparently, when you’re older and not active with modern technology you're wise beyond your years even without having experience with what you're criticizing.
With a click of a button you can see or hear pretty much anything. I am glad to say I use technology to my advantage. It gives me the ability to write this blog from my van. Technology is the reason I can power my electronics with my portable solar panel generator. Thank you technology, because of you, reading this blog is possible all around the world and the people reading it either are entertained or disgusted by my last 213 days.
This podcast I spent some time with someone who grew up with a very different environment then the one she lives in now. Her life revolves around social media, and I don’t mean she posts a lot of silly cat photos on Facebook.
Frankie Greek is a Social Media Wiz Kid and a Snapchat Producer. (Don’t worry she explains what a “Snapchat Producer” is in the podcast) She is affiliated with the Shorty Awards and hosts a show called WWW. on the Shorty Awards snapchat every Wednesday night.
I had a great time talking to her about her life and social media in general. I repeated say "THAT'S COOL", so you know I enjoyed the conversation. (I'm working on that) She gave me some tips on how to market my website and my future plans of riding a bike across America.
You can follow her all over the internet:
The Short Awards
With these three accounts you can find out way more about her and please make sure to follow her!
