Life before cell phones: Do you remember a time when you looked into someone’s eyes when you spoke to them? Do you remember when you had a real up close, memorable, enjoyable conversation?

Turn your phone off and turn on and tune in to life! It’s not too late!

When you’re over 50 years old as I admit I am, you become a walking piece of History.

I remember Walter Cronkite’s telecast on Channel 2 News on a black tube TV when I was a kid announcing the first lunar Landing.

I remember looking up things in the library system and using the Dewey Decimal System.

Are there any kids today that would know how to look something up in the library in the Dewey Decimal System?

If they had to do a research paper to get a Ph.d would they know how to do it? Or would they just sit there talking into Google all day?

Did you ever think that in the time that you told all your friends what you’re doing on Facebook you could have done something really cool instead?

When I was in high school I looked up things quite often in the Encyclopedia Britannica, and I always found the information I needed, with the help of some great, extraordinary Librarians with Master’s degrees in Library Science, rather than using my Vocal Search that I use daily on my Galaxy Note 4 phablet.

Technology has its place and the incredible technologies we possess enable to do things faster than we ever dreamed and information is accessed at a rate that is almost abnormal.

Instead of parents reading to their children, teaching them phonetics as my mom did me, and exposing them to reading books, and exposing them to new ideas and helping them become more well-rounded human beings, quite often a parent in 2018 will stick a smartphone in the kids hands at an unusually early age.

Unfortunately this doesn’t give any kind of bonding at all for the child and the parent gets an easy time out but the child is greatly deprived of the kind of attention that old-school parenting and reading and nurturing gives.

I see babies in strollers basically raised by apps or babysitters and not by the parent learning any kind of language skills whatsoever which is really sad and pathetic compared to what it used to be. The sad thing is the kind of talking I hear a lot of parents say is simply “shut up” so you wonder where the kid turns out to be a real loser later in life if he doesn’t have any positive role models to encourage him or her.

Watch what you say around children because they absorb it like a sponge and they will live up to your words.

Spend more time talking to your children and your family and really spending quality time with them. After all, they won’t be around forever.

Here’s the test to see if your addicted to the internet.

Remove Facebook and Twitter off your Smart device and free up all the space on it. Now watch how much time you just gave Yourself by doing that!

Just think about all the cool software you can put on your smartphone that does something really awesome with the 4GB Facebook takes for the app and the messenger.

Now ask your absolute best friends to share cell phone numbers with those friends that you called friends and see how many really share the number.

I was on Facebook 10 years and maybe a dozen gave me their cell phone number out of 1000!!!!

So in retrospect I was really wasting my time wasn’t I?

You want to have high quality friends even if it’s only 5 of them rather than 5,000 you don’t even know.

If you’re brave and courageous enough to remove those apps off your device and you don’t feel any kind of remorse or anything else once they’re off you probably weren’t addicted and it’s just something you did as a hobby.

If you noticed you feel anxious, and it kind of bugs you haven’t not having the networking sites there, go ahead and stick them back on.

Watch it though, Facebook and Twitter full of a lot of people doing a lot of nothing substantial that truly matters.

Give yourself a certain amount of time on them then happily walk away, and then get off of it and go do something else.

I call it be out with life in the living not behind a monitor or a cell phone

Make sure we don’t replace people with robots and take the very technology that we created to make our life as human beings easier and instead minimize human being’s ability to think, reason and to communicate in a normal way in the real world.

Do something wonderful that you’ve been wanting to do for a long time but you haven’t had the chance.

For every hour that you’re doing computer work get away from it for an hour or more.

Life’s too great to just simply look at computer screens.

Facebook and Twitter face fines up to $53 million over hate speech

Facebook, Twitter face fines up to $53 million over hate speech

Mark Zuckerberg should be keeping closer tabs on the news aired on Facebook, and using more quality control over the content aired on the site. Facebook is an extraordinary communication medium and it completely changed the way we communicate all over the world, but just as any business has to avoid charges of FRAUD, so should Facebook and Twitter. 

They need to maintain it and moderate it and make sure that all the content posted represents integrity and honesty and decency in my humble opinion. It shouldn’t revolve around money but QUALITY. Anyone with a goofball story can get on these networking sites and there are a lot of gullible people taken advantage of. 

I took both Twitter and Facebook off my Smartphone and Tablet due to the trash and simply stupid thing’s on it, as well as people either wanting to play games, chat incessantly or having me forward stupid messages all over the place clogging up my phone and computer.  God knows how much of my private information is shared by them as well.

The Federal Trade Commission in the USA should crack down on FRAUD on the internet. Allowing anybody anywhere to simply pay to put their garbage on a web site, may make someone money, but it also does more people a disservice  by having  fake information  available  made to look as though it was  real.

Why does another country have to get involved to crack down on this kind of abuse in the United States? We should care enough-Americans-to want to end it. Conumerous advocacy teams should crack down on them. 

Fraudulent fake news from bad sources denounces the reputation of the website or web platform as well as the people at the top responsible for quality content.

I hope that those who air any kind of Web content realize they have a social responsibility to consider as well.

Once a writer writes something, the trick is getting it “out there” in the big blue expanse and hoping that people find merit in what you write about. That is what has happened with this site, one of the 5 I created and write one.

I had no idea what a blog was a few years back, but found a Writer’s Market book at the Newport Beach Library telling me how creating a blog would create readership, build a web platform, and I could tell the world about something that really mattered to me.

I then had the idea to create a member based cooking site that involved way more than cooking, and had features on it and would be a test run for the cook book that will eventually be in print. “Cooking Up a Storm All Over The World!” now has 206 members from all over the world, and has many people who are Contributing Writers on it. I can assign titles to anyone, allowing burgeoning writers to show case their work, which gives me joy. I never imaged it would have turned into something so extraordinary–but it did.

Now Totally Inspired Mind is becoming more popular every day, with 25-30 new followers a week, unheard of by comparison to my first cooking site! The comments I have gotten from people are all stellar, for the reasons I want them to be.

I have many SEO Marketers contacting me about the word choice I use. In regards to this, I did SEO Writing for a client of mine for a year and though I did it and got paid for it, I didn’t care for it at all. SEO rules goes against the DNA of every good writer and forces a person to be redundant, use simple language and it is not a natural way to write. I have recently invested in many hundreds of dollars in SEO/Marketing books that say the opposite about SEO.

I believe in simply writing great content and attract people to the sites I create by the sheer fact that is great. I have avoided gimmicks on purpose because I don’t want to bribe someone to “read my stuff!” I have plans to do Affiliate Marketing on the sites this years and Sponsorships to companies I fully endorse their products and methodologies.

What SEO writing does and SEO in general is it it forces traffic to your site, not because it is good content but because you are tricking the search engines to find it! I want to be found on the merits that I am a great writer and that I offer people something of value.

I am a genuine person and I want my philosophies and practices reflect that. I am not a hypocrite and the only people in my life are good people who care about the world, the environment, people around them, children and our future. if they are not that, I really don’t want to “hang around with them”. Who you don’t associate with is just as important as who you do, because negative people drag you down like a ball and chain wrapped around your ankle. I know, because I had some family members who whose actions were the polar opposite of that.

I got rid of bleeding ulcers by simply removing the cause of them, and I was related to 4 of them!

In the 50 comments I have replied to today, someone asked me if I had a Facebook Page for Totally Inspired Mind, and I told them no, but I will certainly go create one since I know there is a want and desire!

You see in life I listen to what people say, and if I feel there are enough people who would follow the page, I would create it. It wouldn’t take me very long in the grand scheme of things.

If any one has a story that you feel would fit nicely on Totally Inspired Mind and thing more positive minds would appreciate it, send it to me at:

TotallyInspiredPC@gmail.com

Thank you again for reading what I write, appreciating the photos that I take with all the love in the world.

Until next time,
