My Social Media Pledge (2020 Edition)

My Social Media Pledge (2020 Edition)

A lot of folks are closing their social media accounts. I get that. Why invite more mania into our lives?

For me, social media is still better than it is terrible. From time to time, I revisit the Social Media Pledge I make every year. A new year is upon us. Now seemed like a good time.

  1. I will always keep things upbeat and positive
  2. If I don’t have anything nice to say, I won’t say anything at all
  3. I will choose to not be offended (unless that is impossible)
  4. I will not squirt “weak sauce” with my whining and self pity
  5. I will temper my innate sarcasm (except when I deem it too hilarious not to share)
  6. I will not pass along “chain letter” kind of stuff
  7. I will never add someone to a group unless they ask to be added
  8. I will celebrate the gift of life
  9. I will rejoice in the beauty of God’s creation
  10. I will try to have some thoughtful, humorous and helpful things to say
  11. I will celebrate the Christian faith that fuels and empowers me
  12. I will enjoy my family and joyfully share in your family celebrations as well
  13. . I will be sensitive and prayerful before I post anything
  14. . I will not be drawn into on-line arguments
  15. . I will not get political (others seem to have that well covered)
  16. I will always take the high road
  17. I will keep in touch with friends and family
  18. I will have fun (lots of fun)
  19. I will try to add value to the lives of others

Anyone care to join me?
