It’s funny. I have had a blog now for a year and a half. I started it right before I had Benjamin. And it’s been with me, ever since… through it all.
As many of you probably know, there are certain topics I don’t go near. Mostly out of respect for other people. Not that my posts would be negative… but certain members of my family, in-laws included, I do not discuss. And… ahem… my sex life. (I’ll leave that right there.) Everything else is an open book.
Everyone in my family knows I blog. All of my friends know I blog. It’s one of those things that I love to share about my life… here’s what’s going on… enjoy! laugh! smile! cry! share!
So it was amusing to me on Tuesday when I went to my local YMCA and I ran into a few of the trainers there who didn’t know I blogged. Usually I don’t walk in with Mom Generations gear to work out in… so really, there was no way they would know, could know really.
Well, as it goes in this day and age… follow this path to them finding my blog. One of the instructors knows Kristin from one of my favorite blogs, Manic Mommies, from childhood. She’s friends with her on Facebook. And found me there. Viola!
The power of social media, huh?
It’s even more funny because last week Jane wrote a post about her trainer, and well… he was in the room and was happy to tell me that he printed out Jane’s blog post and was going to tease her with it.
And so, now the trainers at my YMCA know about my blog. I think it’s fantastic. I will have to start writing some juicy things about the YMCA and working out. Hmmm… !!
But I love this world. I never thought I would become this immersed in it. This social media world. I’m not kidding when I tell you that I just learned last year how to download photos from my camera to my desktop. And had to be showed 10 times. Slowly.
This world is amazing. The people you meet. The people you connect with. The people who know you… that get to see a different glimpse of you. It’s powerful. It’s amazing.
And yes, I have a blog. I have even been vlogging. Come back anytime. Hopefully I’ll entertain. And I won’t disappoint.
