What Kind Of Cloud User Are You?

1. The Martha Stewart

During the spring time sometimes I like to decorate my cloud with festive ornamental grasses and hay to give it a more vibrate feel for others to enjoy. It is a good thing. “

You might be a mom or some girl wanting to be (and I can’t stress enough of how much I do not want to use this word, but the internet is holding my Netflix account hostage until I mention it in an article) adorkable. One thing is for certain you are the kind of person who has three different Pinterest accounts so you can organize your fun crafts for kids, exotic recipes, and adorable dresses in an easy way. You are the one who always has some new goal to reach, and everyone knows that, yes I did crochet all my children’s sweaters with chopsticks. So let me guess what is only being stored on your cloud? Your cloud is only filled with food recipes for a rainy day, fashion tips when it is cold in the morning but hot in the afternoon, and how to build a herb garden with nothing but recycled wine bottles. You are the crafter, the maker, the trend setter of fashion of the PTA whose cloud would always smell of lemon grass and pine needles if you could make it so. Since you can’t do that you will settle with only uploading the entire Pinterest page to your cloud.

2. The Business Tycoon

No, I am pretty sure you can only store TPS Reports on the cloud.”

You are all work and no play when it comes to what you use the cloud for. Before you skip this sectioning thinking you aren’t this kind of person let me ask you something. Do you understand this next sentence? “We need the TPS reports ASAP before we get into the meeting with the CEO on our next B2C campaign so we know how the EPS estimates compared to the MSRP, but before we do all this we need you to sign a NDA so you can’t discuss anything until the IPO.” So now that you realized that sentence made sense to you and that your childhood is dead, it might be time to put a funny picture or song on the cloud. Look you are old now, and your taxes are the most used document for cloud storage. It is fine, but just remember to spice it up a bit. Because you know what happened to Jack with all that work and nothing to play with? He went crazy, so throw a cat picture on the cloud to show that new client that you are a fun loving girl or guy.

3. The Social Know it All.

I was just at jitters with some friends, but it got lame, so we went to the Red Door, then the Majestic, then to my friend Kyle’s place for jello shots, and then we broke into a rave in an abandoned warehouse, until sun up when we hoped the Line to get brunch and now we are having mimosa to end the night . . . err morning. Oh I got so many pictures to upload!”

You are the one with an event’s list a mile long and an hour wide. You are the one with a head full of liquor and a phone full of pictures of you having a head full of liquor with others. You always pop up at the most trendy spots and people call you for something to do on the town. Now for those who skipped the business tycoon one for this section thinking you are the socialite of the year let me knock you down a notch. So what is it that makes you the social know it all? Unless you said a fully charged smart phone with a two sided camera, red bull, facial hair and a writer’s wit for men, and preferring the television show Girls over Sex in the City for women. Then maybe you might want to go read the business tycoon section one again. Honestly, you are the type of cloud user who will only have pictures of wild nights, dance music, and a full calendar on your cloud. Of course, you know what happened to Jack with all play and no work? I hear he is at an African art and music festival until 7 pm, but then he is going to see his friend’s band play at 9pm and who knows after that, I can never get a hold of him.

4. The Nerd

My other Dungeon Master is the Cloud.

Oh my, my, my, my, my, I wonder how many people who get on CloudTweaks fit under this category. You are the type of person who understands how the cloud actually works. Now when I say actually works I do not mean you know it stores and secures files across your devices, no you know how and why it happened based on how the hardware works together. If that was confusing let me make it simple, you might be a cloud nerd if you store a manual on how to build or operate a cloud networking system. Of course, maybe you aren’t a tech nerd and you have that one picture of you at Comic Con with your hand floating an inch above the pretty cosplay lady’s shoulder. I know for me . . . ummm I mean I know for some that storing your Dungeons and Dragons score cards on a network cloud allows everyone to access the cards without anyone afraid of it being lost or changed. Of course, that is just what some other people do. Definitely not me though. . .

5. The most wonderful, caring, attractive, popular people in the world

I am so awesome.

So apart from being a supporter of CloudTweaks and an avid reader of my articles there still is one more thing one must do to truly be part of the most wonder, caring, attractive, popular people in the world cloud type user. If you click here, yes right here, you will find my new novel The Road Trip by Chris Kenealy on Amazon. Now the real neat thing about buying my new novel is that you can store it on the Kindle Cloud Reader. Have I blown you away yet? You can actually purchase a full length novel of adventure and excitement and store it on Amazon’s Kindle cloud or your cloud to break from the traditional files you store on your cloud. Okay, this maybe a shameful plug of epic proportions, but I am a shameful writer who is giving you gold and a chance to exercise your cloud storage muscles when you buy The Road Trip. That sounds like a good opportunity to me, and you get to be the most wonderful, caring, attractive, popular person in the world!

(A quick warning The Trip has adult language and adult content that may or may not be suitable for all ages. Then again that tantalizing little warning might be the very thing you need to start those rebellious years you’ve been looking for. Happy reading folks.)

The Community Cloud “We are special. We have unique needs. Our demands for compliance and security go way above your average organization.
