Social Media is addicting and has harmful effects on sleep, eating habits, relationships and especially to children who are easily influenced. I started with Facebook and left due to the ridiculous amount of drama. It was too time consuming with little positive results.
I use Twitter to promote my books and it is also draining and takes away from my personal time. People do not return retweets and getting book reviews is difficult…even when I give the eBooks away for free. All social media is filled with cliques and if you are not in one of them, you will not get much support for your work in the way of tweets or reviews. I do my best to support as many people as I can and find many are too self-absorbed to even care. Some people can be so rude and thoughtless so I block them.
There is array of mentally challenged folks on social media and many want so much attention, it is hard to please some of them. There are stalkers who want to hook up or know everything about your personal life. This is creepy since I only want to have a bit of fun and promote my work. I am not interested in finding dates on social media.
I find it is best to visit my social media sites once a day, week or month depending on what you are using it to achieve. Some folks just want to babble away about whatever interests they have. There is a lot of competition and many just tweet their own stuff and are not supportive at all. It is amazing the hits famous folks get on twitter for making some idiotic comment while those who struggle to get seen have to work much harder. If you are not getting the results you hoped for, it is healthier to only use social media when you must so you can live your life without the stress of dealing with strangers, who care little about you or what you are selling and EVERYONE is selling something on social media whether is is art, books, music, beliefs, religion, politics, etc.
If you find yourself consumed with social media to the point where you are not attending to your personal life, you may be addicted to social media, which includes excessive use of cell phones as well. I know I have been and I am working to overcome this. There are benefits to social media. Overall, if tweeting, texting, emailing writing excessive blog posts etc are running your life, it is not healthy. If you find yourself not eating/exercising or attending to personal matters, you may want to cut back and use social media only when you have to do so. I do not believe our lives are richer via social media since many depersonalize others and behave in ways they would not if your were in the same room with them. Just something to consider. Best wishes to all and thanks for reading.
A migratory butterfly, Greta oto is often spotted in Central South America on both the Atlantic and Pacific sides of the country, from 500 to 1,600 m. The glasswing has also been spotted in southern USA = Florida, Texas, Etc.
The glasswing is so named due to its gloriously transparent wings. A brown to reddish-brown border helps make Greta oto’s wings more visible. The upper part of the forewing also has a white stripe through the brown region. Glasswings lack the tiny scales on most of their wings so the wings are see-through.
Adults have scaly antennae and an elegantly thin, brown body powering the delicate, clear wings (the veins in their wings are visible). Males have an additional feature to their wings: on the hind wing is a small plume of fine hairs that stay tucked under the overlap of the forewing most of the time. These become helpful in courtship.
As an adult, this butterfly drinks the nectar of certain flowers like Lantana (Verbena, Asteraceae and Boraginaceae). The glasswing’s body absorbs chemicals from the nectar which make the glasswing taste unpleasant enough to discourage predators from eating them. The average length of a glasswing butterfly is 28 to 30 mm.
