Social media! It’s everywhere, we all use it and we all live off of it. As a blogger, it’s my bread and butter! I am constantly updating my Twitter status, I upload onto Instagram at least twice a day. I schedule my tweets in whole months stints to on a daily basis. We feel the need to tell everyone what we’re up to all the time. Today it is Valentine’s Day, yes I’m planning slightly ahead and realise this post is coming out a lot later than Valentine’s Day; anyway, I have stayed away from social media today as it’s been an explosion of bragging, loving and photos that make you want to be sick in your mouth! So here I’m sharing with you the pros and cons of Social Media and some little bits that’ll make you smile!
I am addicted to twitter! It’s amazing for finding blog friends and it’s the best way to grow your blog
I spend far too much time on there and not in the real world sometimes
Instagram is just so so pretty and a beautiful medium for expressing yourself and your blog!
It isn’t real! I cannot stress this enough! Social media is a show reel. Even those gorgeous photos of coffee dates and amazing blog shots are all orchestrated and fake for the sake of the photo!
Being active on social media can get you things quicker – whether it’s a complaint about a service or its a kudos to an amazing brand – you’ll be seen in no time at all!
Being so far removed from the real world (if your head is always on social media) can make it really hard to empathise and sympathise with those around you – as someone who is always on their phone for business reasons, I can’t tell you how important it is to switch off!
Twitter is literally my best friend. Whenever I’m sad or lonely or bored I stroll on over to Tiwtter to see my buds!
It is a fact that Social Media is addictive! If you’re not careful you’ll have sat down with a cuppa for a quick glance at the world trough your phone and all of a sudden it’s lunch time and you’ve not looked up for hours!
There’s so much more to life, even as a blogger, when you look up from your phone and see the real world!
