Socially Awkward?

Written by , Posted in Thoughts

I don’t know why I chose that title. This isn’t a post about awkwardness at all. But it is a post about social media. Which, can get awkward… so let’s just go with it.

I’ve been blogging for a good while now. By that, I mean a year. It’s not really a long time. But, in terms of social media, it is kinda. I can remember a time when there was no Facebook (gasp). I didn’t use Twitter until a few months ago (and I’ll admit that I’m still not as fond of it as some might be). I can also remember a time when we didn’t have internet at home (faint from shock). It’s not that I’m thaaaat old, it’s that social media as a whole is pretty young.

So I’m trying to stay with the trends, be hip like the young kids (OK, maybe I am old)… whatev… I’m on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google+ (reluctantly, I’m not a huge fan, but have 2 friends who like it best)… is that all of them? I may still have a Xanga profile too, somewhere out there in the internet void.

Why might you care? Well, I post on here, of course. But, I also, and often, post in other places. I have loved taking photos for as long as I can remember. I dragged my feet when digital cameras came along. I wanted to do it the real way, with film. I’m over that now. I still have my film cameras, but I don’t use them (sad, but true). And now that I have a smartphone (ahem, that I have only had for a few months… welcome to the 21st century, Rachel O!), well, I just ran out of room for photos yesterday… did I mention that I’ve only had the phone since June? So I like to post photos on Instagram (AKA addicted). I also often post random thoughts on Facebook and Twitter. So I’m telling you because you might care to follow me, so you don’t miss out.
