I started this blog in January of 2008 for fun. And it has been fun… making new friends, writing, sharing life with an extended group. In April of this year, I started working with Wendi McNeil, a coach with CharliJane Speaker Services and she told me it was essential to join the Social Media sites; FaceBook and Twitter for starters (I’m on LinkedIn now too.) I reluctantly followed her advice, as I really didn't understand the value and figured I was already online enough.
It’s been interesting and some days I think we all feel we need to disconnect and unplug to avoid overload. However, I find this fact filled video speaks the truth with the proclamation “Social media isn’t a fad. It’s a fundamental shift in the way we communicate.”
I think bloggers have led the way, don’t you? We have it all, product recommendations, content, relationship…
I’ll leave you with a recommendation… I’m totally biased but you can see for yourself that my daughter is a gifted baby & children’s photographer. She just launched her website this week. Jessica Hays Photography is for the lucky moms in the Sarasota area.
P.S. I'm BeverlySpeaks on Twitter and Find Me on Facebook!
