Wednesday Wander – Times Square and Rockefeller Plaza, New York

I love New York and here’s a brilliant way to spend some of your time there! Hop on over to Journey to Ambeth and say hello!

Journey To Ambeth

It’s Wednesday, and time for another wander. I’m continuing with our recent trip to New York – apologies for the number of posts but there was just so much to see, as we crammed in as much as we could in the few days we had! This week, I’m wandering to Times Square and Rockefeller Plaza.

I have to admit that Times Square isn’t really my kind of place. A bit too frantic, a bit too touristy. But, at the same time, there is a kind of intensity to the neon insanity and towering structures, and I do believe that it’s somewhere you need to see when you visit New York, even if you just wander through.

Times Square is located at the intersection of 42nd and 7th, and was originally called Long Acre Square, after the original in London. Originally the location for William H. Vanderbilt’s…

7 Reasons Why I Deleted My Facebook Account

More reasons why Facebook can be detrimental to your social media activities – here’s an insight from Hugh as to why he deleted his Facebook account…

Hugh's Views & News

Lately, Facebook has been in the news a lot, and I’m reading lots of articles comparing it to favourite social media websites of the past such as MySpace, LiveJournal and Friendster. Has it, too, had its day?

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with Facebook since I can remember. At first, I was very reluctant to join. Did I really want everyone knowing what was going on in my life, where I was, what I was doing, who I was with, etc., etc., etc.? I mean, there are other ways of finding out that information, isn’t there?

As an author, I know I should be using Facebook to help promote my book and my blog but, just over a year ago, I had decided enough was enough and finally gave Facebook its marching orders.

Here are my seven reasons why I deleted my Facebook account.
