As a mother of 2 under the age of 5, and a stay-at-home mom I am so thankful for social media.
I live in a relativley small mountain community where it is hard to stay connected to other moms. There are no parks, malls, or the like to meet up and talk. We (or maybe just me) live life between naps, meals, spills, and housework.
Over the years I have longed for a community of women to share ideas with, laugh with, and be real with one another. To my surprise I discovered that through the power of social media. Twitter gives me instant gratification of talking and getting a response, blogging allows me to share how I see the world, facebook is my coffee shop where I learn all the necessary gossip of my friends old and new, and not once do I need to pick up my phone to interrupt my day.
Some may say that this form of media is shallow and impersonal, but I strongly disagree. I have learned how to be a better mom, wife, and friend all through the pages of a tangled web. The every day life of raising a family rarely gives me a chance to connect with anyone outside this house, but every day through social media I can.
