Are You Social Media Savvy? media. I guess I have a kind of love/hate relationship with it. I have been very blessed by it and have seen great things happen through it. I have made beautiful friendships and found blog readers through social media. But it can also be addictive and keep me from doing what I need to in my "real life." And sometimes it can feel a little false and even pointless.

I do think it's necessary to be active on social media if you have a blog, or you're an author or a public figure, or you have a business or a ministry. In fact, if you aren't active on social media you may be missing out on some wonderful blessings and opportunities. But balance is key! It's not necessary to be everywhere online all day long. A little here and a little there does it.

Are you social media savvy? You do have to learn how to properly use all the forms of social media you decide to be active on - if you want to use them effectively. I'm not the expert or the best person to tell you how to use these services, but there are many great resources available. {Gretchen Louise has lots of helpful info. Christin Slade has some helpful posts. And I have some good links on my Blog Tips Pinterest board.} Let's help each other out by sharing our best social media resource links in the comments!

I'm just curious as to how much social media you engage in? What services do you use regularly and what do you prefer? I decided to make a little survey for you at the bottom of this post - I promise it's quick & easy {seriously, it'll just take you a minute}! If enough people take the survey, I'll be sure to share the results with you. If the survey isn't showing, you can Click here to take survey.

Enough about social media!! I better go get some non-virtual things accomplished! :)

By the way, my next post will be #1000 here on my blog!!! Woo Hoo! I'll get that posted later in the week - there will be a little giveaway on that one, so do stop by! Thanks for hanging out with me here and stopping to smell the chocolates in Life!
