You may or may not have heard, seen and witnessed the many individuals whom wait in line at a store to get their hands on the newest trending in technology, fashion or other things and people want to be the first ones to purchase it, when a few months down the road or the year after they still have the same product people wait hours and hours and sometimes days for in line, and bring chairs, tents, blankets and food while they wait, which I find to be very pathetic and a total waste of time. I would utilize my time better like getting on with daily life, priorities and so much more, then having to wait for something in line. I know a lot of companies love that attention and love the money that they receive from their customers. As long as they see that green they make, its all that matters to them and some people fall for the tricks and always come up with new things so people keep on them. However, they won’t see that from me.
The only things I would wait in line for is if I have to use the washroom, if I am waiting to go on a trip to check in at the airport for my trip or whatever the case maybe that is important. Not some gadget, fashion, or whatever it is.
However, I am not one of those individuals who just because other people have to have the newest trends and products, doesn’t mean I have to as well. I can wait for it. I am my own person, and I do not like to copy others and follow people. It is not going to be the end of the world if I do not purchase that product right away. I can get it cheaper and better in months time.
A lot of people tell me why I do not have this and I do not have that, its simple, I am content, happy and satisfied with what I have, and I do not need to try and impress others because I am always up with the new trends. Around the world people do not even have shoes, clothing or when they do is when its ripped up, or anything. what should they say? I have traveled enough to know that and they are living a lot happier, and stress free with smiles on their faces. I have witnessed that. Traveling, reading the world news and seeing it with your own eyes makes you realize a lot of things about life.
Some people should be fortunate enough, and satisfied with what they and we have instead of always wanting more, always being picky about what we want, and waiting in line for a product for days and hours and hours is something that is foolish and outright craziness and does not make any sense to me whatsoever.
I mean okay if it means for you stay in line and if it makes you happy, do it, but think about it. Its foolish. Where is the common sense?
What do you think of that? What is your opinion on this?
Well, it is that time again where Christmas is behind us, and today is boxing day. Many people will go or have already gone out for Boxing day shopping to get their hands on great sales and deals in the retail world, where people get discounted products and everything. I am one of those people who has never gone out to shopping centers, malls, and plazas to go shopping on a crazy day like today, and it just gets me stressed out. I really do not feel like getting trampled on, and attacked by other people. I would rather go shopping at a later time and not battle through big and long line ups, and I would rather shop being sane, then insane. It’s winter time, its cold, snow on the ground, what am I going to do? I would rather stay warm at home and relax, then having to venture out. The time I do go to Malls is Mid January, where things have calmed down, and where I can shop in peace.
Do you like to go shopping on Boxing day, or are you like me and stay home or stay far away from anywhere that requires shopping? If I really do not need something, I do not purchase it. Even if its on sale. When I do need something stores will always have something, so I am not in that rush to get something if I am not going to be using it. How about you?
Well, new years is a few days away. Cannot believe 2013 will be over and gone in less than a week. This year went by so quickly. It is unbelievable. How was 2013 for you? Did you do anything exciting? what were some of your highlights? Have a blessed new year, all the best to 2014.
Since a few years back when twitter was introduced to the social media world, a lot of people found out about the website and began to sign up for it twitter is a website where you can update statuses of 140 Characters or less, put links, photos and share news of the world, sharing travel, social media and other news and as well as people who are interested in so many things. Then on the left side menu you see topics trending and newest updates of the world, and you can even choose local trends in your own country. I am beginning to really like twitter a lot. You can interact with many people, companies, and post your feelings, small quotes, and update your twitter status as much as you like, you can re-tweet interest statuses. You can follow up to 2001 people, but twitter has this guideline that if you have over 3000 people following you, then you can follow the equal amount of people.
Do you use twitter? What do you use it for? Do you use it to boost your business? Do you use it for personal use? Well, whatever it is, its amazing. You can search me at @tweetertalin and follow me, and I can update you on my blog, and among other things and interesting finds I see on twitter. I am into social media and I find the best stuff on there. I love posting hashtags. Hashtags are what gets you more noticed. Say you write about social media so you write #socialmedia and it turns another colour, then when you click on social media, it will come up with things that other people are writing about that subject, and you can interact with others and reply, re-tweet, and be active with others, you can make a lot of friends on twitter, and before you know it, your follows increase, and the more you engage, interact and get out there, the more people will know about you and your skills and when they see you posting great content, people attract to you more.
If you want to interact with a person directly, say you find a username like angeleyes or sweetie47 or whatever you put @angeleyes and then you write to them a short message on their twitter and it must be less than 140 characters or else it won’t send. Twitter is an interesting place. I am always on it now, and I like to do so many things on there, and I am always talking to big companies, and they respond back. You can go to connect on the top, and you can see your interactions, people who follow you, people who mention you, then you can search for keywords, people and whatever you are interested in and boom, you can find so many people.
If you do not have a twitter account, sign up, and include that in your blog, or share it on facebook or wherever and get your friends, family, co-workers or find interesting people on twitter, follow them and just have fun with it, and that way you can get people to interact with you more. In twitter you can post a profile picture, share photos, share hashtags and find people who are interested in the same kind of things. Gaining followers can take time in the beginning and getting your twitter started up can take a little time to go around, but you will get a hang of it. All it takes is sometime and you are on your way to a great new social media interface. Have fun with it and enjoy. You will have fun updating your statuses. Tell me what you think of it. All the best!
Since Halloween has come and gone, the following day the Christmas Commercials on TV, RADIO, INTERNET had come up, and today those Overly Advertised Christmas commercials have come to an end, thank goodness. I mean its one thing to advertise a product but to have the same commercials playing over and over again is something that I do not like. Christmas has become so business saturated, too commercialized and these companies, businesses just want the money and they also pay big bucks to advertise things that do not need to be advertised every 5 minutes.
Where do we draw the line? The true essence and the true meaning of Christmas is becoming rare. The last 2 weeks, the shopping malls, plaza’s have been over-filled with shoppers, people fighting over parking spots, trying to find parking in overcrowded parking lots of malls. I stay away from malls and places to shop in the month of December. I mean whatever there is, I can buy it other times of the year and I do not have to risk being trampled over, waiting in super long line-ups, getting stressed out on finding a good parking spot, so on and so forth.
When I get into my car and I go somewhere, I listen to the Radio and all I hear are Christmas commercials on furniture, cars, toys, so on and so forth, so I turn the channel or I turn off the radio and put music on. I am just so fed up of those commercials. I am glad its all over with today. I mean yes these things are some peoples bread and butter and the way some people make their money to survive, but Who else finds it super annoying when things are excessively and overly advertised?
Everything has its limits.
Thanks for dropping by, and Enjoy Christmas day!
