I have always loved technology and gadgets. As we cut costs the last thing on my “cuts” list has always been my cell phone and our internet.
I jumped on board Facebook early. Only problem was none of the people I knew had bought into yet. As they did though I was quickly able to catch up with friends and family members. Growing up and moving a lot there were a lot of people I never thought I would ‘see’ again. This was good and bad of course.
As the economy began it’s nose dive and we needed to rethink our life I turned to social media. It was the fastest way I could think of to a) to find out what businesses were really saying and doing b) start making connections and c) learn new skills.
I’ve rediscovered a passion for social anthropology through social media and learned about some personal strengths. As a mom and as Kate I feel more connected to friends and community.
I’m thrilled to be mentioned in Holly Pavlika’s post What is the value for a Brand of a Mom who blogs or tweets?
