The past few weeks I have been thinking about and talking about why I got into social media and I thought I would write a post about why I got into social media and also give other people a chance to tell their story.
I think my story is a little unique since I fell into completely by accident. I had no desire really to do anything with it for international education and was actually taking a teaching with technology course; however, I wasn't teaching at the time but, I had plenty of study abroad students I could put to good use. I started with blogs and they were so successful that this progressed to Facebook and Twitter and it has literally exploded from there.
This wasn't even something I was planning on making a side business out of to be quite honest but as I keep trying out more and more things (I am more of a hands-on type of person) the more people came to me with questions. That has resulted in what is now Mandy's Mashups.
Now, what is your story as it relates to how you came to social media? Did you come into completely by accident? Or did you start off for personal reasons and then decide or feel pressured to try it out for more professional purposes? I would love for you to comment below and let me in and why you got involved with social media. No reason is too big or too small!!
More posts coming soon. I have a whole series of exciting guest posts coming your way!! Stay Tuned!!
This blog is all about social media. I hope to offer tips, tricks, advice and more on using social media within international education and international travel.
