Words are powerful! In this high tech environment we can communicate around the world in seconds. With all the mobile devices, we can communicate anywhere and anytime. You can send pictures, videos and words to relatives or post it on a website. We take millions of pictures and share them with our friends. Yet, we do not communicate any better than 100 years ago. It is just a lot faster!
Although I am older (baby boomer), I participate in all this technology on a daily basis. Since everyone is using technology to communicate, why isn’t communication better? Is there a memorable moment you want to save for posterity or it all really forgettable? Twitter and other text messaging reduces everything to 140 characters. Technology such as email, text messaging and social media forces us to write, but how much is memorable?
Maybe, I am old enough to remember a letter or birthday card from my grandfather that I cherish. I know my wife saved my letters and cards that I sent her when we were dating. Maybe, you only cherish sentimental things? Words are important because it is how we express our feelings and much more. I can still identify the best or my favorite articles of the week. This makes a good segue to today’s picks for Friday Night Links.
The following articles caught my attention:
Smart on Money – How To Check Your Credit Report For Errors and Get Mistakes Fixed
Squirrelers – The Long Term Value of Investing Just $1,000
Sustainablelifeblog – Green House Update Strategies
Sweating The Big Stuff – What’s The Difference – Realtor vs. Real Estate Agent
The Family CEO – Easy Entertaining: A Grocery Store Tablescape
The selection of blogs is up to the committee of one established by krantcents as a representative of the Academy of Frugal Journalistic Writers. That committee can be influenced by meaningful comments, signing up for my RSS feeds, backlinks, links, trackbacks, Facebook Likes, Twitter, Re-tweets, Digg, StumbleUpon, delicio, Yahoo Buzz, Google Bookmarks and other social media. If you plan on creating a single purpose political action committee (PAC) to buy advertising on my blog to solely influence the committee, please go ahead! Please understand it will not influence the results.
I read more than five hundred (500) articles a week and I highlight just five (5) in my Friday Night Links. Words are important! Thanks for reading Friday Night Links Words Edition.
