The other day I was looking at several news websites. I was trying to read the daily paper, or should I say browse through it looking for the sections I like most and of course Dear Abby, Haha!
With each website, there were numerous ads and pop-up screens to sign away your email address, and well, it got to the point I just kept clicking each one away. With automatic videos starting, music and ad pop-ups flashing, how in the heck is someone supposed to read the Paper!
I’m on social media all day. Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Linkedin. Heck, even with all the posting on social media, it’s not nearly as bad as going to read some stinking news.
I know print is more time-consuming. Paying for the paper to be delivered each day, finding some space and time to read it, and so on. The internet news is a lot easier, but by the time you deal with all of the fluff in the way, it would be easier to read print.
So, I guess I’m going to continue in life the old-fashioned way of reading the news. I do get my feeds on Google via my iPhone, so with both sources, I can get my news in a more relaxing way. Sometimes no news is good news, and I try to keep that in mind when reading the headlines…sometimes its just better to pass!
