Those who know me a little and well, will know this is nothing new….I am in fact, well known for not being able to shut up….
I want to talk about this blog and why I’m doing it. Not just to keep those near and dear to me both overseas and close up to date on my constant ramblings. Ramblings about my house and the beautiful things I materialistically covert along the way, yes its the magpie hiding inside, I don’t want just one, I want three!!!!
It’s an opportunity to dip my toes into the pool of blogging and social media. Social Media is a massively growing phenomina, one I find fascinating but scarily mind blowing with the array of various mediums out there. So far I have come across, Internet forums, weblogs, social blogs, microblogging, wikis, social networks, podcasts, so in other words: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Houzz, YouTube, mySpace, blah blah, you get the picture i’m sure. My point is this blog is a learning experiment that will hopefully morph into a different beast as I crowd my already busy brain with new information.
One thing i’ve particularly noticed alot of my facebook friends have been doing is ‘liking’ and ‘sharing’ these random pictures.
In my ignorance I worry about sharing or liking this stuff, what does it mean for me? Will i be opening my information and profile up for any weirdo, crazy, fish faced person to send me random freakish emails or whatever they can send (see I am ignorant in that I don’t even know what ‘cyber’ threats they could treat me to).
So thats what I’m going to figure out, will I get spammed, probably. Will I make mistakes and muck up how my page looks, lose you all, yup without a doubt.
Geeze, look at the time, gotta make dinner for the small people with grumbling tummies.
Catch you later, Sa x
