This is the Age of Enlightenment. Relationships matter. The social connections and conversations. Personal relationships. Sharing information.

It will make the social that much more enlightening.

Though I swear I have seen my cat laugh at me. Many times: ‘Laughter is one of the very privileges of reason, being confined to the human species’ ~ Thomas Carlyle

How good do you feel after you’ve had a good laugh? (Very. ) I agree. Very. And  humor and social media go hand in hand. Make your posts light and fun. (even silly) Laughter is another form of engagement. Go ahead have a really good belly laugh. It’s very social and engaging.


Think outside. The box. Be creative. (It’s an exercise in letting your imagination run wild!) Try to look at something in a new and different light. Add your own twist. Try not to follow what everyone else is doing. Because everyone else is already doing it. And if everyone else is doing it then it is not different. Be visual. In this age of Social Media where everything moves so quickly you don’t have too much time to capture attention. Capture their imagination with an image. It will stick in their mind long after the all the talk. (Blah. Blah. Blah. Blah!)
