What Social Media Means to Me

Social media is a fairly new concept to many people.  For me, it's been part of my life from the time I started blogging - which was about five years ago.  Social media is my way of sharing information and connecting with others.  I don't know where I would be without it, really.

I tend to live the life that most people think artists live.  I stay home most of the time and work on my art or writing.  I'm not very social in the traditional sense in that I go out and party or hang out with friends all the time.  However, with Twitter and Facebook in my life I've become an online social butterfly ;) 

Social media has changed my life in many ways.  For one, blogging has become a big passion of mine and has turned into an entrepreneurial endeavor.  I feel very fortunate that I can do what I love and make money doing it!

How has social media changed your life?

In a recent interview with CB Whittemore of Flooring the Consumer, I offer my insight on social media and its relationship to marketing.  I also share tips on how companies can bridge old media and new media to connect with their customers.  The interview is part of an ongoing social media series that I highly recommend reading if you're interested in using social media to attract people to your art business.
