It has sucked more time away from my days. Ha ha. Seriously. I say this tongue in cheek, but it really has.
For one, here I am blogging instead of working. At night, instead of reading every night, I am scrolling through Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter. I'm reading blogs that I follow, and finding new ones.
So I can't say it's changed for the better.
But what it has changed in a good way is being able to connect with people I would never had the opportunity to otherwise. There are so many nurses, midwives, moms, birth advocates, craft people, sewists, the list goes on and on....that I can learn from and communicate with!
It's also framed how my business is marketed. The majority of the marketing I do is via social media, which ultimately leads to word of mouth (or word of screens, clicks, and pins!). Traditional advertising just doesn't work for my type of clientele, as 100% of them are connected online. Social media and blogging has certainly made for competitive marketing for me, as I think every online business (or any business, really) wants that one viral pin on pinterest, or video on You Tube to help boost their profits. So I certainly have changed in regards to that, which brings me to my very first sentence above.
It sucks my time away from me!
