Twitter or Facebook and A Complaint

I love Facebook! I have used it since 2006. It was fun to find old high school and college friends. Facebook kept me connected to my phone shy brothers and connected me with cousins I haven't seen in years. I love to write to express myself and share information. Facebook was useful for that purpose but my constant status updates were annoying. I now use Facebook to keep up with family and Twitter as more of a creative, public tool. It is sort of a microblog for myself. I follow funny and orginal tweeters. I also like getting DC traffic and weather updates. My favorite tweeters are Neal Boortz, Nicholas Pegg, Steven Moffat, Michelle Malkin, Jim Beaver and Tammy Bruce. Capital Weather is also good. Twitter is the best to use when there is breaking news. I got more information about things like the political debates and the earthquake from Twitter than from any other news source. Of course Twitter linked to news sources but I got them quickly. (another great place is, I got the best tornado coverage from fark.

 A lot of women complain about the news and brag about not keeping up with it. I view the easy access to news as a blessing. I am sure women back in the pioneer days wished they could keep up with the news. An old fantasy was about having a magic mirror on which you could see all of the kingdoms of the world. We know have those "mirrors" but so many take it for granted.

STUFF Clogging My Mind

I haven't blogged in a while. I never made it big in blogging and I never found an audience. I gave up and instead used Twitter as a way to express myself. I primarily used Twitter for about four years and even had my own little community. I had a few major retweets but was never famous or anything. I kept myself anonymous because I didn't want attention. I just wanted to express my feelings. A month ago I quit and it was one of the best decisions I've made. It was popular last year to say that 2016 was the worst year ever! It was a very strange year for me! I went through many challenges, new baby, c section, deployment, teenagers, a move, and ended the year losing my grandfather, I went into a deep depression and realized that I was spending sometimes 6-8 hours arguing with people on Twitter. I knew that couldn't help my depressed mood so I decided one day to quit. By day three I felt like a new person. I had more energy and I no longer felt hopeless. Instead of w

How to Attract Negative Commenters to Your Blog

I have been blogging since 2006 and one of the most interesting things is when this creature called a Troll finds your blog. A Troll is a bored scary little thing that goes through blogs, message boards, and You Tube comments saying mean, evil words creating a fight. If you've never had a troll visit your blog, it is easy to attract one. All you have to do is set a bait. Here is the bait that works the best. 1. Keep a "Conservative" blog. Extra points for being a member of the Tea Party. Trolls hate those who are Conservative and this bait successfully attracts the nastiest of trolls. Bonus points for misspelled words or bad grammer. You will suddenly get a comment about how Bush lied people died etc. 2. Write an anti- Obama post. My page views increased dramatically when I wrote a post against Obama, all were people trolling and questioning your intellect. It might not work as much now. Suddenly people will write comments questioning Bush or Reagan and how ra

The House of Ephraim and the Book of Mormon

The Bible is the story of the House of Judah. It is important because that the family that Jesus was born into. His mother Mary and her husband Joseph were both of the House of David and carried royal blood. It was important that the Bible be published for all of the world, but they aren't the only tribe. In prophecies the House of Joseph (Ephraim and Manasseh) are listed along with Judah. Ephraim and Manasseh were the major tribes and had the most members. Great leaders like Joshua belonged to the tribe of Ephraim. The Northern Kingdom was called Ephraim as the Southern Kingdom was called Judah. Ephraim is supposed to fight against and then unite with Judah. So where are their records? We have some remnants of their records in the Book of Chronicles. Before they were taken away to what is now Central Asia (Afghanistan, UZBEKISTAN, and Turkmenistan) by the Assyrians, they were given a chance by King Hezekiah of the Southern Kingdom to come to Jerusalem to worship in the temple
