I wrote about my Facebook Illiteracy and Twitter Addiction, but in the midst of all these new fandangled social sites, I'm beginning to wonder what role my blog plays.
Like many other mommybloggers, I began my blog to keep our distant relatives up to date on what was happening in our lives or mainly my children's lives because let's be honest...nobody ever really cares about the parents!
Anyways, after I became more familiar with the blogosphere and discovered other mommybloggers who I could relate with my blog sort of transformed. Sure, I still write about the day to day adventures of our crazy family, what the kids have been up to, and add current pictures of them, but my blog has also became a little more me centered. I started sharing my weight loss journey, my running aspirations and accomplishments, teacher stories, and of course the random posts of my ramblings too.
With the transformation of my blog, I have also enjoyed watching my readers grow. I crave the comments and look forward to what people have to say about my thoughts, pictures, or ramblings. I like that people read for different reasons, some joining me for my weight loss journey, others relating to my teacher stories, and others here just because I'm a mommy too. My niche: my life. I love the fact that my blog truly encompasses all the pieces from the box of chocolates that is my life.
Now that I have rambled on and on about my blog, how much I enjoy it and the whole blogosphere, let me get to my point or question.
What role does my blog play with other social media sites out there?
This is where I share my thoughts, my pictures, my links, my life. Why do I need Facebook? Isn't it kind of redundant? Can't my "friends" just come here to see what I'm up too? Twitter is different so I can see how it and my blog could coincide, but once again not getting Facebook.
Maybe I should just throw in my hat and bid Facebook goodbye.
Before I do though, let me ask you...
What role does your blog play within all the other social media sites?
