The prompt for this week’s blog is MY FAVORITE APP.
Until about 4 years ago I didn’t even know what an app was. I thought it was an abbreviation all the cool kids were using for appetizer or appointment. No lie!
Now I know what it means ( I think!) so I really am in with the cool kids. I will admit I had to email my daughter before writing this blog just to make sure I was getting the APP definition correct.
Hi. My name is Peggy and I’m tech-NO-savvy.
If you’ve ever read my blog posts – not just the MFRWAuthor ones on Fridays – you know I typically sign off with a cutsie saying and then this:
Tweet Me//Read Me// Visit Me//Picture Me//Pin Me//Friend Me//Google+Me// Triber// BookMe // Monkey me //Watch me
It’s a listing of all my social media sites where you can see my retweets, shares, likes and views ( the visual kind, not the ethical or moral kind! Hee Hee). If I had to pick one favorite among them all for my favorite app status, it would have to be PINTEREST.
I could get lost – literally – for hours on Pinterest viewing boards. Some people like to play games on their devoices, some watch movies or tv shows, some even listen to music. I PIN.
I feel like I need a self-help group when I say that.
Me: Hi. My name is Peggy and I’m a Pinner.
The group: Hi Peggy!
Truly though, there is nothing more fun for me to do when I want to waste ( not a good word choice, peeps) an hour trolling through all kinds of celebrity pix, holiday themed gifts, DYI stuff, even book recommendations. Recently, I took my mother to the hospital to have her first cataract surgery and I brought my iPad with me because I knew I had a couple of hours of waiting ahead of me. The entire time she was in pre-op holding, through the surgery, and until her ophthalmologist came and brought me to her room, I was pinning.
Here’s a secret – and I’m totally outing myself here: while I was writing this blog piece, I was scrolling through Pinterest boards looking for cute apron sayings for an upcoming book about a an InnKeeper. This is the board I was saving everything to: Maureen’s Aprons
Maybe I really do need a support group: P.A. (Pinners Anonymous)
Let’s see what favorite apps the other bloggers in the group like best: MFRWauthor
