This morning as I was posting some pics to the Tumblr page I stumbled across a post from The Verge. According to the post Android 4.3 is on the way and should be announced today at the Google I/O conference. I tried to get excited about the latest update…I want to be amped for any news regarding Key Lime Pie, the “rumored” 5.0 software update for Android. But when I look over at my phone I KNOW I’ll never see any of those updates. But is that a bad thing? My HTC One X+ is a great phone. It’s fast, has a great camera, and runs all the apps that I need.

This past week I realized that I have too many social media accounts. How many you ask? Here’s the list:
- 1 Pinterest (The Grey Backpack)
- 2 Twitter (Personal and The Grey Backpack)
- 3 Google+ (2 Personal and The Grey Backpack)
- 1 Facebook (Personal)
- 2 Facebook Pages (The Grey Backpack and Previous workplace)
- 2 Instagram (Personal and The Grey Backpack)
- 2 Blogs (The Grey Backpack/Weddings For Guys)
It’s amazing how many sites you will have under your care if you aren’t paying attention. Now that I have the list it is time to restructure my social media strategy. As I make changes I will post details about the new strategy. Stay tuned.
