Windows Live Essentials 2012!

The link above is for a CNET download page for a copy of Windows Live Essentials 2012, a free set of programs that Microsoft had created that I used to use all of the time.

Included in this set of programs is a mail program, a messaging program, a movie making program and the one program that I used the most: Windows Live Writer. You can install all of the included programs, or select just those programs that interest you, like I did with Live Writer.

Live Writer is basically a blogging program that you use directly from your desktop rather than having to log in directly in order to post on your blog, and before the website became corrupted and lost, all of the previous posts had been created using Live Writer.

This is why I was thrilled when I discovered that CNET still had the program available for download and installation!

I am writing this post using Live Writer, and the pages Graden, Lucas, and Rain were also created (or recreated) using Live Writer.

It seems to work just fine on my Windows 10 laptop, with no issues connecting with my website or posting pictures with the same properties I designated in the program.

So, if you want to be able to post without having to log in directly to your website, I would suggest getting a copy of Windows Live Essentials now, before it’s no longer available!

Why I am no longer logging into the anti-social media sites

Facebook, Google+. Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, About.me…

Good grief! It all just get’s to be such a pain in the ass to have to deal with all of the social media bullshit sites!

Log into Facebook and I am bombarded with post after post of political or religious articles telling me what is wrong with America, what is wrong with human beings, challenging me (or daring me!) to put some view on my timeline that I may or may not agree with. All I want from Facebook is to be able to log in and see what friends and family that I don’t get to see on a daily basis are doing with their lives. And it looks as if most of them are spending way too much of it posting bullshit from some other sites.

I log into Twitter and I get massive amounts of sponsored tweets that I have to wade through before I can see what people I am actually following have posted. And some of those posts are also of a political/religious website origin.

So I have decided I am no longer going to log into any of these social media companies that I have accounts for, because my own website will post to them for me.

Now, instead of having to log into each separate site, I log into my own website, post something, and all my friends and followers can get the update or the link back to this site. They can leave comments on my site, because I won’t be reading them on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or any other useless social media platform.

Better yet, if they know me well enough to have my cell phone number, they can call me or text me.

Otherwise, I am not going to see what they are posting.

FU Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc.
