News......and more news.......

OK~ Remember the days when the news we received came a couple times a day from a local television station? Or, how about the local AM radio station? Today, I find Facebook and Twitter to be my go to sources for news. I can find out what is happening nationally, regionally, locally, if there are any school delays, any immediate weather issues, and the happenings of family members and friends!  Social Media is seriously changing how we communicate and receive our news.

We are all connected....more so than ever before! I'm thinking back to when we first had internet in our home....it was dial-up, but it was so cool! There were a limited number of websites available, but it was fun to see what was out there. Boy, in about 15 years time, we have come a long ways! Whether you Yahoo, Google or Bing....you even get news on those homepages. News is everywhere! It's still amazing to me that many people have no clue of what is going on in our world and community. Maybe I'm a news junkie...or just like to be informed as to what is going on around me! For now I wait to see what the "news" will flash to me in regards to a snowy day in Iowa!  Yep...it's April 19th and we have snow and winds!  Gotta love Spring time! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

  1. I'm amazed by how easy it is to get information these days too. I love it because I feel like I can always be "in the know" about what's going on.
