You are 'old' if you focus on having a daily BM and talk about it. What about tomorrow, ever thought about that possibility I say.
It's time for me to embrace the new. It's too easy to settle into the old and comfortable. I'm completely burned out on political news. There has to be something more to life.
I'm keenly interested in Millennials. I want to get some idea of what we can expect as they become the movers and shakers in our country.
News is a big part of my life. I'm addicted to news. It's easy to assume the Millennials are detached because they don't read newspapers or watch TV. I read an interesting article on How Millennials Get News that gives me hope.
"This generation tends not to consume news in discrete sessions or by going directly to news providers. Instead, news and information are woven into an often continuous but mindful way that Millennials connect to the world generally, which mixes news with social connection, problem solving, social action, and entertainment."
"Virtually all Millennials, for instance, regularly consume a mix of hard news, lifestyle news, and practical "news you can use." Millennials are more likely to report following politics, crime, technology, their local community and social issues than report following culture and celebrities, or style and fashion. Fully 45 percent of these young adults regularly follow five or more "hard news" topics. Sixty nine percent of Millennials get news at least once a day."
Today I began purging my news feeds of polls and election news, now what? That's a big chunk of what I've consumed on a daily basis. After the election what do I want to know, what sites will I follow?
I'm currently sampling two 'new to me' sites:
Newsy talks to you so you need to wear earbuds. Appears, from my limited experience, to be more bite size news.
Stitcher I like a lot. It's also audio.
Other sites I'm going to take a look at either for myself or to recommend to my children are, Spotify, Wattpad, SoundCloud, and Redditt.
I've never done much with YouTube so I plan to explore it further.
My body may get old but I don't intend to let my mind.
