[30DoG] Day 2: What technology are you grateful for?

You mean, besides all of it? LOL! I love my computer because it’s so all encompassing, particularly for my writing. When I can’t be at my computer, I stick to my smartphone and occasionally my tablet. My iPod gives me music when I’m not at home. And bedtime doesn’t feel right without my Kindle.

And for the record, just because I adore the versatility of my Kindle, it doesn’t mean I’ve abandoned the visceral enjoyment of an actual book in my hands. It’s a matter of convenience and what’s on hand, particularly when I travel.

State of the AJ — July 2016

I used to do these posts over on LiveJournal and Dreamwidth a lot, then I just kind of slacked off.  The last time I did one of these posts anywhere was in April of 2014.  I won’t try to update every single thing that’s happened since then, but I’ll hit some of the major points.
