Weekly Roundup – Social Media Edition

I am what you call a late adopter. New things come out, I see them advertised, I yawn and go about my business. Then months later (sometimes years) I eventually get around to rediscovering those items and finding that I actually find them useful and kick myself for not joining earlier. This sums up my experience with social media.

I avoided the whole MySpace/Facebook scene for a long time and saw little value in things like Twitter and the like. However, I now understand the value in connecting with people in a more informal online setting than blog comments.

So, over the last few months, I’ve been trying to reach out to more readers in an effort to share things not really meant for a personal finance blog. I’d love to connect with you, and if you are a slow adopter, I’d encourage you to sign up and give it a shot.
