|This would've been me if I never started blogging.|
Moving ahead a few years later, I eventually decided to take part in it again, through the form of blogging. (That is, if blogging is considered social media. If you haven't read my last post, you can check it out if you're curious about how I started Shooting Star Dreamer.) Through the actions of other bloggers I began to see that social media wasn't really those three negative things I assumed it was. For business owners, it was a way to promote themselves and their products. For social butterflies, it was a way to communicate with those near and far. For writers, it was a way to spread our voice across the world.
If I were foolish enough to not adapt to the tide, I could have closed my blog at that moment. However, I decided that since the world is progressing, I have to progress with it to be successful. I then began to explore the many possibilities of social media slowly, such as Blogger, Tumblr, Facebook, and a lot more that will take too long to name. The process could be described as a small child tasting new food for the first time. Some I'll enjoy or love, others I'll completely dislike, but by being open to new things I open myself up to massive opportunities.
If I had never gone into the world of aniblogging, I would've remained closed and unaware of the great potential the internet contains. As of now, I'll continue to spread my voice far and wide, which is something everyone should do, because every voice matters.
