Thank you to BING Social Search for sponsoring my post about social media. I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.
At the beginning of 2009 I was at a loss at what to do with my life. I was selling stuff on eBay and working part time as a server. I started getting requests for blog headers and blog graphics. I looked into the blogs and said to myself, “I could do that.” So in March 2009 Southern Bella’s Ways To Save was born. I started out on a blogspot with a simple header and didn’t even know what blogging meant to me. I just knew I had tried a lot of ways to make money online so I was going to share those that worked for me. Then it slowly snowballed into what I have today.
The first day I signed up for twitter I was lost. I had a better idea of what facebook was, but twitter and hashtags were like outer space to me. Once I figured out my space and what I wanted to blog about (everything) I went full speed ahead. Watching Social Media blossom right along with me was amazing. You can interact with people, brands, and companies on an INSTANT medium. Have a question? Tweet it. Want to share a photo? Facebook it. The connections you make through social media hold a special place now in today’s culture. I can honestly say some of my best friends I met through social media. What about you?
