I started this blog back in November, and not only was I new to blogging, but I was new to social media altogether. (I’ve had a FaceBook for a while but only had ‘friends’ that I actually know in real life, which gives it a different feel). I went to WordPress.com and with much trepidation I signed up. I spent the first few weeks just reading other blogs. I followed the ones I liked and did research that way. I didn’t ‘like’ or comment on anything because I didn’t have my confidence up yet. My first post went out in November and I started picking up followers. Since then my blog has evolved into what it is now. A few short months later and I’m feeling somewhat comfortable with it, but still perplexed by some of the nuances.
I started using my Twitter around the same time I started my blog. They seemed to go hand in hand. I’ve had a Twitter for a while but couldn’t understand it or use it. Was it like FaceBook? Where were people’s pages? Through starting my blog I have explored Twitter a bit more and I can almost say I know how to use that too.
