Top Ten Thursday: Social Media and Me

Thursday, May 31, 2018

Another fun TOP TEN THURSDAY - this time, it's things readers should expect to see if they plan to follow me on social media.

Hmmm, well, this is an interesting one. so here goes....these are the things you might (okay, WILL) see on Facebook, Instagram, Google+, and Twitter.

  1. First and foremost, pictures of the #2Doods, Cooper and Murphy: 
    I take lots of photos and share them on Instagram (they have their own account, too) and Facebook (yup, another account here).
  2. Stuff about our home in Tennessee:
    Having lived here just a year, it's still new to us and we are always seeing new things. Flowers, birds, name it.
  3. Improvements around our home in Tennessee:
    You never know what Stu will be up to! Whether working on the motorcycle, the yard, in his wood shop or the RV, there's something going on.
  4. Local travel & visiting:
    We make a lot of trips to neighboring towns and since I use my phone for photos, well, you see what I mean. With summer approaching, we won't do as much because of the #2Doods and not being able to take them in the car. But we might still try a camping trip or two at a local campground...just to get them used to it.
  5. Photos from our cruises:
    We cruise at least once year and even thought we often cruise the same ports, there are always new photos. LOTS of new photos...maybe even a video or two.
  6. Grandbabies:
    We don't get to see them often enough, but love to share pictures when we do (or when we can steal them from their parents on Facebook or Instagram).
  7. Positive Quotes:
    I am big on quotes and often share my favorites. Motivation, feeling good, positive reinforcement, making a bad day better - these are the ones I like.
  8. Funny stories, videos and cartoons:
    I like to laugh - there is too much sadness and unnecessary drama in our lives nowadays. So when something makes me laugh out loud, I like to share it.
  9. My book updates:
    Yes, I share news about my writing on this blog. New books, special sales, etc. but I try to not spam this blog. In addition, I will share news about my author friends and their books from time to time.
  10. News Alerts:
    I often share news alerts on Facebook that I feel might interest my friends or are of special interest to me. Weather, general news, lost celebrities or people of importance - that type of thing. If I've seen it too many times, I won't share. Oh, and I always try to verify that it's not fake news or a hoax. too many of those going around.
What do you share the most on your social media accounts? Drop it in a blog and join in the blog hop!

Ciao for now!


  1. I enjoy your Blog and FB... regardless of the content. Keep it up.

    1. Awww, thank you, Phyllis. I try to keep it entertaining...

  2. Hi Donna we have so much in common - we love cruises, grandchildren, and my husband and I are currently renovating our apartment we hope to retire to. Your dogs are beautiful and my daughter has an Instragram account for her miniature schnauzer, Wallis the Pooch. You should check it out! It is great connecting with you and getting to know you more.

    1. I thought we had a connection...ahhhh, life is good! Thanks for dropping in to read, Sue. Much appreciated!

  3. Hi guys - just stopping by from Sue's Sizzling FB page. You've certainly been blogging for a long time - I'm surprised we haven't crossed paths by now. Loved your post - and I'm not sure if you're aware that Sue and I host a Midlife Party on Wednesdays on our blogs - it's a great group of bloggers who share posts about their lives (not boring recipes and craft!)

    1. Hey Leanne...believe it or not, I've been participating in the Midlife Party for a couple of weeks now. I love it, especially love reading some of the other blogs. Thanks for dropping by!! (and I promise a guest post in the next couple of weeks for your September list).

  4. Some known facts about you - some new! :-)

  5. We're very similar in what we post about though #1 for us is two cats and a dog. We've lived in the Scottish highlands for 2.5 years and still have so much to discover.
    Enjoyed learning about you and have a lovely week.

    1. Hi Pamela, I can't imagine living in the Scottish Highlands, we'd love to visit there someday. Appreciated your stopping by to read and comment! I'm way behind in reading the other entries so off to do that!

  6. Donna, love your blog and I'll be visiting your Facebook page shortly. Love the idea of your top ten too! Good idea. Thankful Thursday Week 22 and thoughts on dateless posts.

    1. Hi Shirley - the Top Ten isn't my list but I enjoy contributing from time to time. Now off to visit your Thankful Thursday list!


Love to hear from you - drop a few words and we'll reply!
