My first posting has become that much easier after reading Eric Pratum’s article Taking advantage of Social Media? Taking part in Social Media. Do I use? Yes. Am I an addict? Not compared to some. (It’s nice to say these things without getting puzzled glances, or at least I’m not seeing them!)

I have likely avoided this realm as I found myself spread too ‘socially’ thin and unable to maintain and contribute to those meaningful connections. Eric’s article helped to get me back to the solid ground I used to enjoy. I’m happy to jump back into the social aspect and to take advantage the networks that keep me engaged.

And so, if at some point I turn into one of those rogue-ranters or voices to turn on/off, Eric’s the man to thank ;)
