Socially Transmitted Disease

Blogosphere Hit by Socially Transmitted Disease

FOMO is a real disease that’s spreading across the social web.

It seems like kind of a stretch, but the more you think about it and see how technology is affecting people all around us, I think you’d have to agree that there may be a potential problem developing here.

You can’t build anything with a mindset like this…

It’s based on fear, and not a well thought out plan that keeps your life and business productive and moving forward.

Whenever you get sucked into any activity that takes you away from making daily progress on your goals, you’re going backwards.

Typically these distractions in life revolve around sex, drugs & rock n’ roll… now you can add social media to the life suck.

You can’t give your life over to habits and activities that hurt you. You’re smarter than that!

The thing is, like drugs, social media can be psychologically addicting and when you get hooked, you’re no longer in control.

It’s not serving your purposes any longer, but rather it’s becoming a interference that can make you completely unproductive and stuck.

I’m sorry, but anytime you have a mindset based on fear, it will lack the foundation required to build anything of substance… make sense?

It’s like a dog chasing his tail, a hamster running on wheel, a bad dream that won’t seem to end… it’s a long road to nowhere land.

So called “Social Media” has become the greatest social evil, a  destroyer of peoples’ abilities to interact and communicate. It is creating an world of inept people afraid of the real world.

“I love my computer, all my friends are in there!”

Nothing has become more true.



Blog Birthday

coffeemademedoitToday is the first birthday of They Say it’s in the Genes.

Hard to believe that a year has passed already.

A big thank you

To all the visitors, commenters and followers, you have all made the experience worthwhile.

There are 351 posts, which means I have posted most days.

72 people are following the blog.

My best day had 109 visitors mostly to the post Natural Law whose antibiotic graphic seems to have disappeared. 😦

Now I deserve more coffee!

Blogging right along…

This blogpost will cause lasting damage to children’s brains

Susan Greenfield has warned of the danger to children presented by the internet, video games and online porn, but that’s nothing compared with the threat posed by this blogpost

Baroness Susan Greenfield has yet again been warning of the dangers posed to children by some form of electronic media, this time online porn. But some have now claimed that her concerns and predictions are misdirected, and that there is a far greater online threat to children’s mental wellbeing that is going completely unchecked: this very blogpost.

Concerns about this blogpost were initially raised after the first paragraph, when it was realised that the piece was going to be bizarrely self-referential, to an extent that would undoubtedly prove confusing to a younger person still learning the rules of accepted narrative structure and general logic. Although not something that would typically interest younger people, it was observed that the first paragraph contains the phrase “online porn”, so could be accidentally stumbled upon by impressionable teenage boys left alone with a search engine. Similar concerns were then raised about the second paragraph.

There, finished…

I have now moved all the previous posts from the Blogspot domain, they are all here.

It was all a case of taking a bull by the horns, and doing.

Hope you have enjoyed the reading so far.

This blog does not necessarily get daily attention, but posts are likely at any time during the week, and normally more than one.

I have noted many readers visiting during the marathon repost. I would like to thank you all for the ‘likes’ and if there are any comments, I will get to them.

In the meantime, WELCOME!

I look forward to your further company.

Now I need more coffee…

Older Posts

I have had a gutsful of Blogspot.

I am moving They Say it’s in the Genes to WP

Check that link for Older Posts, I will move some here.

Unfortunately, the theme Jeans that I used for the original blog has decided not to show the graphics, again. Unfortunately that this theme is not available for WP, so the play on words Genes/Jeans has gone.

If you are new here, WELCOME, if you have followed here from the old blog, thank you and I hope you continue to enjoy what I have to say about life.

I love comments, and reply to all.

It may take a couple of weeks to get this place sorted, widgets in place and old posts copied over.

I ask your indulgence.
