Social Media Near Disaster Averted (or Thank God I have a Facebook Account)

I just had a near miss on a social media disaster.  I was copying the third part of my latest blog and lost it!  First thought, PANIC!  I have to confess, I am a bit of a Type A perfectionist.  I meditate several times a day to offset this.

Second thought: stop, don’t think and breathe.  OK, breathe some more.  Not thinking is still a relatively new thing for me, so it took a good bit of breathing.

Instead of old me swirling through the 100 reasons why I will never remember my brilliant point and just what was my brilliant point, I stopped long enough to think of another option.  My friends would be so proud…  LOL!

And here’s what happened.  Breathing helped me to redirect my thought process.

New thought:  where could I have this information so that I wouldn’t have to reinvent it?  Hmmm… I didn’t write in in Word.  I wrote it straight into WordPress.  Step One: search WordPress for a back up copy.  Ok, no luck.  Breathe.  Breathe again.

Where else have I posted this?  Aha… Facebook!  Maybe, just maybe… Facebook has my brilliant thought.

Yes!  Crisis averted.  Amazing.  Cut, paste, save.  What could be easier?

Breathe…ahhhhh…doesn’t that feel great?

    Once again, Facebook has proven to be the average man, or woman’s, social media savior.

    I recently had this happen to me. Unfortunately, I had saved it no other place. I still can’t remember what I was writing but I am sure it would have been amazing.

    Love my Facebook! Would rather get my blogs on facebook as part of the stream then in my email! Same with friends photos and conversations. I belong to an Idol group and each person in this group writes a comment about the show in an email. needless to say it fills my email and makes me hyper-ventilate! I do not look forward to Wed or Thursday mornings.
    Glad you found it 🙂
