We are trying. It has just occurred to Jane and I that we have been living under a social media rock for the past ten years. Things have moved on and we are still emailing everyone, sometimes we even write postcards!
What exactly is a # and the general idea behind tweets?! How on earth can we keep up with this sheer weight of sharing? And finally, what is the sum reason for it all? If someone could lend us a 12 year old for the weekend, that would be appreciated. They may be able to answer some of these questions and explain exactly what a ‘html code’ is. We are in the process of upgrading our computer bits as it seems that they are not up to the task of tweeting whilst taking a picture of yourself and sending an email at the same time.
We’re on it though, we’re immersing ourselves in it all, we are coming out of our self-made exile. We are enrolling in Twitter academy and trying to understand the subtleties of Instagram. If you are on twitter or Instagram etc, look us up, we’ll be there somewhere, scratching our heads and mumbling expletives. It seems we both have a new hobby and those piles on unread books will just have to wait until another lifetime.
Twitter us here.
Facebook us here.
Instagram us (coming soon).
After all these shenanigans, the good old Beach House blog seems like a trusty pair of slippers and a nice mug of steaming Rooibos chai. We know how most of the buttons work.
“This is a modern world”……as Paul Weller famously said in a Jam song, circa mid 1980’s.
