See this #MySmarterCommerce hash tag? Over the next few weeks you’re going to see it around. I just thought I’d take a few minutes to let you know what it’s doing hanging around here. I was invited by IBM (Yes, that IBM) to join in on campaign where I share my personal story of how technology and social media plays a role in my life.
You all know I’m a blogger and yes it’s my life. I’ve been doing it since 2008 as a way to keep myself writing during the recession because I couldn’t find a job. That’s when my life changed. I discovered a passion for blogging and social media that I never knew existed. Now that I think about it, it’s actually a passion for sharing information and my personal experiences.
I get to share my love, likes, and dislikes of the world. One minute I’m telling you what shoes I’m drooling over and next I’m telling you about my denim jean issues. No matter the topic, if it’s something that will help another person then I’m happy to share it!
Last night, my hubby made this comment to me…”You’re on the internet when you go to sleep and you’re on the internet when you wake up.” It’s very true. I’m simply amazed at how it influences and affects our daily lives. I might even be just a little obsessed. I mean…come on! I can’t make it to New York Fashion Week, but with just one click I’m watching a live stream runway show of one of my favorite designers.
Since becoming a blogger I’ve been blessed with so many opportunities that I can’t even list them! And nevermind the fact that I’ve met some amazing people with the help of social media and technology. So, over the next few weeks whenever you see me use the #MySmarterCommerce hash tag it’s just a reminder of how blogging plays a role in my life. Now, how about you?
How does technology and social media play a role in your life? Leave me a comment below!
