I told Eliot the other day never to tell anyone where I write my DigiDame posts from. Now I am about to spill my guts out. I am still in bed, reading stories from about 20 different newspapers, magazines, websites, blog posts, and broadcast services. I am doing this all on my iPhone.
Yes, I own an iPad but I find it too heavy to hold when I am still flat on my back. I will use the iPad when I am ready to sit up and officially admit I am working. As long as I am lying down, I still feel relaxed and at ease.
Right now I am writing this post on my iPhone. I can’t write this way all the time because some of my posts require more research and funky layouts. Most of the time, I wake up and start reading the many periodicals I rely on everyday. Then I start my writing. I don’t know why some people find it amazing that I can write and read on the iPhone. Many people do it. I even have a friend who reads novels on both Android and iOS smartphones.
Mobile technology has allowed me to play and work hard. Tonight we are expecting around 50-plus people for a 4th of July party in our condo in South Beach, Fl. Desserts, wine and champagne. In the old days, I would have been frantically thinking about how to squeeze all of my responsibilities into the day before the guests arrive?
Today, I take my smartphone with me everywhere. I handle things on the fly.
