News travels fast!

I love technology!  I love skyping with family, love texting, love Facebook, love blogging.  With all these advances, I can keep in touch with friends from elementary school and high school, cousins, nieces and nephews I never got to know in person, and interact with people who share similar interests and ideas.  I can keep in touch with my children and get messages to them quickly if I need to.  With all that said, there are some things that shouldn't be learned through social media.  If there's something personal happening in your life (like a birth, death, illness, wedding engagement, divorce etc.), you might want to consider letting the people who are closest to you know about it before sharing it with the world.  A quick phone call (or text if you can't reach the person by phone) to the important people in your life will avoid hurt feelings, misunderstandings, miscommunications and possible offense.  Word travels so fast these days and you want to make sure the special people in your life are the first to know the news!

PS...There are some things that you shouldn't share with anyone.  But hopefully, you know that already!  If not, I'll cover that some other time...
