I blog, and I tweet. I use linkedin, facebook, foursquare, and instagram. Basically, I’m a full-fledged social media nerd.
As you can imagine, I spend a lot of time alone in a dark, windowless room staring at a computer screen.
In the words of Cher from Clueless: AS IF!
It turns out there are lots of other social media nerds like me, and I’ve been fortunate to meet many of them over the past two years. A few have even become my good real-life friends.
There’s a perception that people are different in-person than they are online where everything is semi-anonymous, but that’s not what I’ve discovered. So far, everyone I’ve met has been friendly, out-going, and even more charming than they are online.
As we get ready to move in a little over a month, I can’t help but think about the great social media community here in San Antonio. If you live in San Antonio and are thinking of starting a blog, DO IT! Your writing will improve, you’ll be more motivated to find new things to do (you need material for the blog, right?), and you’ll have the chance to meet some outstanding people.
Note: I was invited to the Taste of Texas Wine even by the Westin La Cantera and attended free of charge. However, I was not asked by the Westin to write this post and all opinions are my own. If you’d like to join the wine-tasting fun, remember that the Westin offers wine tasting every day from 5-6 pm in Steinheimer’s Lounge for $10. Wine tasting is open to resort guests and the general public.
