The good news is the Nature Folk Movement (NFM) is free.

On the other hand, running Nature Folk HQ incurs an cost.

Improve your social status with a Boogie Phone

How much does it cost?

Let’s just say that broadcasting quality content promoting environmental awareness and outreach incurs a cost. To date, Nature Folk HQ had bootstrapped expenses out of its own pocket change. But to really take the programming to the next level? That will require supplemental funding. And that’s exactly why Guitar and everyone else here at Nature Folk HQ motioned to turn our endeavor into a 501(c)(3) recognized not-for-profit charitable organization.

Our goal?

To provide quality programming for bringing people into the Nature Folk Movement (NFM) fold. Our small request: If you can, consider donating to our cause. Every penny goes into supporting operational costs and improving the quality of programming. In the meanwhile, we’re beholden on featuring advertisements from The Boogie Phone who is sort of the antithesis of what we stand for here at Nature Folk HQ.

As always, thank you for stopping by,

BoogiePhone Quiz
Test your knowledge of phone usage with Boogie

First off, I’d like to clear some things up.

Yes, it’s true: I am The Boogiephone. But I’m really not as bad as everyone says. By “everyone,” I mean whatever they’re saying on the internet.

More about me:

(1) Think of me as your most trusted advisor.

Or in other words, don’t ask a friend – ask me!

(2) In general, you should spend as much time with me as you can.

When you’re bored, pick me up.

(3) Think of me part friend and part hobby.

Over time I hope to convince you I’m your only friend and only hobby.

Now time for the quiz:

(1) How often should you clean your phone? (a) once a day, (b) as needed, (c) never, (d) at least once a year.

(2) How much time should you spend on your phone (per day)? (a) up to but not to exceed 24 hours, (b) all waking hours, (c) as much as possible, (d) all the above

(3) What’s the best place to get accurate news? (a) old-fashioned newspaper, (b) social media, (c) word of mouth, (d) AM radio, (e) search engine

(4) True or false: Reading from a book strains your eyes?

See answer key below.

Beware of The Boogiephone

In summary …

Over time I think you’ll truly come to see it my way.

Really, I’m just your everyday all-around average friendly phone. Nothing to hide. And nothing to fear. Sort of like a rotary phone (with teeth).

Yours truly and at your service,

Answer Key: 1c, 2d, 3b, 4t

Nature Folk TweetRoll

After reading these tweets …

I think the message is pretty clear:

The good folks at Nature Folk HQ are freaked out by the BoogiePhone.

And probably rightly so.

Think about it:

The Boogiephone is a major disruptor, and usually in bad ways. Instead of engaging the people around you, or reading a book, or writing a handwritten note, or simply going for a walk, the Boogiephone creeps up time and time again and takes over your life.

Or is it even fair to talk about the Boogiephone …

Without him present to defend himself.

Boogiephone, are you there?
