Do You Waste Precious Time On Facebook?

The recommendation for writers and other creative types (and all other business operations as well btw) is to create a “page” on Facebook and develop an audience.

But once you develop an audience, Facebook wants you to pay them for that audience to read your posts. 

If you have 5000 people like your page, they only show your posts to 300- 500 people. The message is clear. Want more of the people who’ve liked your page to see it = pay Facebook.

Why not just skip the audience/page building phase – save a lot of time and effort – and go right to the pay-Facebook phase?

Just asking.

p.s. Facebook is an advertising medium – not a social medium. Rethink your position on this

Book Review: Keep Sharp

Build a Better Brain At Any Age by Sanjay Gupta, MD.

Let me make this short and sweet.

This is a decent book if you’re new to reading or trying to understand about Alzheimer’s disease.

The 12-week programme steps are useful if you are a new to beginning an Alzheimer’s prevention programme, or if you’ve ignored every other bit of advice in the media this would be a useful series of exercises. You can read the reviews here on Amazon.

This is a so-so book with little new in it if you’ve been following the research or reading other books such as Bredeson’s The End of Alzheimer’s.

Table of Contents

Part 1: The Brain: Meet Your Inner Black Box

Introduction to Alzheimer’s and defining cognitive decline. The author lists 12 myths and offers advice on how to move past these common beliefs. (my note: pretty much available everywhere online)

Part 2: The Brain Trust: How Not to Lose Your Mind

If you’ve been reading about Alzheimer’s, there’s not much new here – eat right, exercise right, sleep right pretty much sums it up.

Part 3: The Diagnosis: What To Do and How To Thrive

I haven’t seen this kind of 12-step programme before so if you’re new to the field or seriously concerned, this would be a good starting point. (This would be the only reason I’d recommend this book – it’s a solid “thing” you can do if you’re concerned.)

Bottom line:

There’s not much new in the way of information but the 12-step programme would be useful if you’re just beginning your prevention programme. Check it out here.

Create Cool Shit

I’m a creator and a storyteller

My retirement goal is now clear in my mind.

Create Cool Shit

What’s cool to me now?

  • Stone walls
  • Wonderful gardens
  • Stories (how I deliver them is still up in the air but multimedia is a leading contender)

Note I reserve the right to change my mind about what’s cool at any time.

But More Importantly

What’s cool to you now?
