I’ve not been blogging much of late. My plate is pretty full and my brain is often aching by the evening. I’ve been writing, but just crappy, boring assignments for university. I had to write an assignment on social media last week, and the impact it has on us coversing with one another. I took a look at the online forum posts from my fellow students and was chuckling at some of the comments. MySpace was mentioned and someone even asked what twitter was. I mean COME ON PEOPLE!!!
I’d be completely lost without social media. I’d lose contact with half of my family, a large chunk of my friends and I know both K-D businesses would take a hit. My social life would be non-existent as all the planning is done through social media platforms, and I’d most probably have to talk to the OH once in a while.
I’m a lot more sociable thanks to the many online platforms available. I can’t compare myself to someone sitting at home just stalking people online, which I of course dabble in from time to time, but I mostly partake in conversation, be it with friends (real life and virtual) or strangers, often through the Daily Mail Facebook page. Please don’t judge me for this.
I also love sharing on social media. I have the cutest of kids and want to share their antics with the world. There is a fair amount of politics around what is overkill and what is acceptable. However I’m in the “if-you-think-its-too-much-please-unfollow-thank-you-please” camp. I’m also a simple creature. If your feed either makes me laugh, let’s me participate, is cute or I’m related to you, then I’m a follower.
But now whilst being stuck in the car, on my drive, with a sleeping baby, I’m already looking forward to spending the evening next to the OH on the sofa, talking to other people. It’s the cement to our relationship.
Thanks for reading
