I started this blog a year ago, in June 2010. A lot can change in a year and today I bring LifeWithSocialMedia.com back into the light of the blogosphere, with a new resolve, with new ideas and with new direction.
The last 12 months
The last year was a year of trying to find my feet, trying to figure out how I’ll fit into this post-university ‘real’ life. It’s been 11 months since my graduation from the lovely Churchill College of Cambridge University, since I was handed my diploma and sent to find my place outside of the bubble of Cambridge education.
I started the year working for a lovely small agency here in Cambridge, UK, absorbing like a sponge and trying to learn as much as I can about social media, marketing and running a small business. During the year my role kept shifting and accommodating, one of the joys of working in a startup, and I found myself growing into a Community/Content/Marketing gal for Alfred. I’m happy to say I’ve enjoyed my work very much and am keen to find out how it will continue evolving.
Yet the next 12 months promise to be so much more eventful. There will be a change in my role, the outlook of long-term travel and many more changes, all of which you’ll hear more about in the next few days, weeks and months.
With this new impulse, the direction of Life With Social Media will shift as well. I’ll continue writing about the uses of social media and the tools that make our lives easier yet I want to also take a higher level look –
- How can we really make the most of social media to live the lives that we’ve always wanted to?
- Is it possible to use the tools of web 2.0 to really live the life that we imagine, from anywhere in the world?
I hope you tag along for the ride!
