Millennial Mom: Ramblings of a Generation Y Breeder

Millennials have been catching shit since the oldest of our generation started coming of age. Some for good reason, but not all of our actions or privileges are caused because we are a “spoiled” generation. We are simply making do with the hand that we have been dealt. How is growing up in a time of advancing technology our fault, anyway?! IT’S NOT! Don’t hate us cause you ain’t us. But like Uncle Ben said; “With great power, comes great responsibility”. And we have dropped the ball by tenfold. Now that the majority of millennials are becoming parents, we...

Sharon meets Hashtags

Hashtags took me a while to figure out. Probably because it took me so long to embrace Twitter. As with most pop culture phenomenon, I had to do some research.  In 2007, former Google developer, Chris Messina, suggested that we used the symbol # in front of a shared phrase to link common topics when using a social media platform.

This began to change later that same year, during...

I have even been...

Shamelessly Social #3

For the past few weeks I have covered over sharing, but this time I want to step off beat for a minute. Let’s discuss the flip side of social media. This time I want to cover some of the better aspects of the social media world. One of the most important being the Amber Alert. In the past, when a child went missing, it was only covered and shared with the local news. Now, if a child goes missing, people in a state clear across the country know about it. We can thank social media for that. I would...

Shamelessly Social #2

You would think that if a person took the time to plan and carry out a criminal act that they would do everything possible not to get caught. Well, that is not always the case. Let me tell you a few stories about criminally social individuals who cannot help themselves from over-sharing. There is a Nebraska woman who shared in a big way. After stealing a car full of drugs and robbing a bank, she posted a YouTube video detailing the entire incident and her reasons behind it. She made a point to hold up the drugs and car...
