Yeah, yeah you’ve heard me talk about speed work on the track, but right now I’m talking about speed of social media and blogging. Anytime I attend a blogger event like HLS, Fitbloggin or last weekends Runner’s World events it becomes clear that we have little to NO patience for not being able to post pictures immediately. How can the world know we are having a blast without a picture?! <<I wish there was a font to better convey sarcasm.>>
Angry huffs are heard any time the message “Failure” pops up on Instagram or Facebook simply shows you the spinning circle of death. Which is why I’ve been pretty darn psyched about using the 4G LTE network thanks to my Verizon Ambassadorship. I swear it always works. There have been days where I can be standing in the same spot and get an error on my iPhone (AT&T) and a success message on my Droid via 4G.
Not only that, but the coverage is better. When David and I are back in the Midwest and driving to Iowa we consistently have coverage no matter where we are with Verizon…thank goodness because that saved us when we had a car wreck a few years ago! Plus umm it means I can be doing my blog stuff sans Internet connection!
So that’s my tip of the week for easier blogging while you travel…upgrade to a better network! hehe!
Don’t forget that in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness month (October), Verizon is hosting a photo contest to share the message of hope. Please enter their best photo symbolizing hope (taken with their Verizon Wireless smartphone or tablet, please). For each submission, $1 will be donated to HopeLine from Verizon. Visit this link for more information and to check out the gallery of inspiring photos so far.
I am grateful that crazy storm Sandy left us with only a lot of wind and some rain. My fingers are crossed it plays nice for everyone running MCM!
Disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Wireless Ambassador program and have been provided with a wireless device and three months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product.
