    Wandering through the damp alleys of Hoi An in Vietnam one cannot avoid having their senses flooded by the vibrant swaying lanterns, the cacophony of food smells, the hum of mopeds swarming the streets. And still, amid this ruckus of sensuality I notice the draw. The technological tether. The craving, the bent, the social media monkey clawing at my back. The monkey chatters, “post this, post that, like, like, like!”

    Geotagging Crisis - Keeping the Wilderness Wild

    16 Instagram Travel Feature Accounts That Feature Your Posts

    Feature accounts are great resources to make your Instagram posts be seen by more people who are not following you. Instagram users who are following these feature pages will see their repost of your pictures with credit, and those who are interested to see more from you will click on your profile and will potentially follow you. It is an alternative way to make your posts be seen WITHOUT being on someone's explore page.

    Blogging About My Small Town

    Blogging About My Small Town

    I have lived in Tampa for 23 years. I used to have family living on the northern coastline in the Jacksonville area up till I was about the age of eigh. Now that I am living here, I decided to write a blog about this small Floridian town and what it means for someone like me with a background issue of keeping employment and finding employment.

    My Google Maps Obsession

    Everyone’s used Google Maps at least once. It’s the GPS of choice for millennials, the finder of public toilets and ATMs, the easy access travel guide tucked into your pocket. So long as you have an internet connection, you can look up anywhere in the world with a few taps of your index finger.

    Interconnected

    When the 21st Century is over and becomes another chapter in the history books, it will be known as the first truly interconnected, interdependent, and entangled era of human history. Compared to past eras, borders are more open, long-distance travel is commonplace due to modern aviation, and global commerce is more free than it ever has been. Globalization as a phenomenon has been made possible not just through open borders and advances in aviation but also due to the wonders of the Internet.
