Since I have chosen to immerse myself in the world of blogging, I decided I should share the love, explore this world and see what I find. Well, one of the very first blogs I have stumbled upon is Mashable.
Mashable is a great site for getting into the world of blogging or if you are interested in becoming more familiar with the web and social media in general. I would describe it as a “one-stop-shop” for everything you ever wanted (and maybe didn’t want) to know about the web and social media.
To get a feel of what types of posts you can expect from this site here are some of my favorite recent posts:
- And The Oscar for Most Social Media Buzz Goes To…
- Facebook, CNN and Obama: The Reunion
- The Science of ReTweets
As you can see from these examples Mashable offers fun pop culture, social media tips, new happenings on the web and everything in between. This blog was listed by Time Magazine as one of the top 25 blogs of 2009 and once you subscribe to its feed it is easy to understand why. Mashable, with its vast offerings, makes me a more knowledgeable social media consumer each and every day.
