Okay so this post is just for fun. Don't get upset because I'm mostly teasing. Plus if you're reading my blog this most likely doesn't apply to you, so just be entertained.
So here's the thing, if you are thinking you can still get away with having your assistant print out your emails (I met a businesswoman like this just two years ago, no joke) and just slide by this whole technology thing altogether, I have four questions for you:
1. Are you too young to know what a computer is (above) or too OLD. Everyone has a different interpretation of old, and I highly doubt that's you.
2. Are you in totally secure employment that does not require you to be anywhere near a computer ever?
A potential employer or recruiter will google you without question and if you don't have an on-line presence you'll only have your two page resume to stand on.
3. Are you quite certain you'll NEVER be self-employed?
4. Are you independently wealthy and will never need to promote yourself or your business for the rest of your life?
Cause if you answered no to one or all of these questions, get one of your kids, or your husband, wife or any one of your friends to show you the basics.
Really. Or don't tell anyone that you are this technologically impaired.
It's kind of like when I lean over to Terreeia and say "Tell me again who our Prime Minister is?"
Embarrassing right? She always says "Don't tell anyone you can't remember that".
Here's another example, I had a conversation with a woman with teenage age children a while ago who proceeded to tell me how she loved my blog but couldn't post comments on Facebook to let me know because the last time she 'shared' a joke with her son that only he would understand, she accidentally shared it with all her friends too and she was embarrassed. And then he had to fix it for her.
"Tee, hee, hee", she giggled "So now I just read stuff and don't venture out to comment in case I accidentally do that again.
Really? Post comments on Facebook??? This is not difficult.
You are missing out on so many connections, opportunities, and new friends, I'm here to tell you it's impossible to think that you can just keep hanging out pretending you don't need to do that 'Social Networking' thing.
I'm still cranky that it took me about 8 or 9 months to actually set up my own Pinterest account. But when it happened I resisted. I thought to myself "Really? Yet another site to eat into my already little free time?"
Yet I was still using Pinterest during that time to source all the images for my blog because it cut down the time it took for me to find them by about 50%.
So it was actually a time-saver in the end. Who knew?
Feel free to follow me there by the way, it will cut down your sourcing time by quite a bit because I've already curated everything I like for your convenience.
So here's how you know you can't actually get away with not participating in one social network or another.
When you look at the side of a bus and there's a sign that says "Follow us on Facebook or Twitter or Pinterest".
Or how about an electrician with a follow me sign by the side of the road.
That's how you know.
So jump on with all of us will you? You will be so glad you did.
And I love you!! Don't be mad. I just want you to have a great life and I want everyone to know how to beat a path to your door because you're so fabulous.
I know you're wonderful but what about everyone else?
ps. Ok, so who do you know who's a teeny tiny bit like this?
