Reserving Social Accounts; Am I Crazy?! Posted on June 17, 2014 by Nate.
Boy have times changed. I never thought that the first things I’d want to have my newborn’s name on are social accounts and email addresses. WTF am I doing? Reserving a twitter account, email address, and a website address probably was the last thing any new parent would have thought of a few years ago. Maybe it’s because of the industry I am involved in daily? Maybe this is where society has gone now? I dunno. Part of me thinks I’m crazy, but that other part of me is ruling my actions at the moment. To the point of, when I think of talking to my son, but fear he won’t just quite grasp what I have to say yet, I’ve started to send him emails. Emails I hope one day he will read and appreciate. Maybe he will think it’s weird. Maybe this type of communication will be archaic by the time he is ready to dive into the interwebs. No one truly knows if Twitter or Facebook or Instagram will be around in the future. Am I the only one out there that has lost his mind? Surely not! But for now, I’ll hold on to these just in case.
