For the first time unrelated to fashion, style or beauty I'm sharing a piece of life that got me thinking. In a digital age where Instagram, Twitter and Hashtags pop up in our everyday vocabulary, how much is too much when it comes to social media? I didn't think there was such a thing as "too much" until I was completely caught off guard by a scenario which happened over the weekend.


The conversation was short lived, however, in my head I was thinking, "Did she really say that?" The internet and social media platforms have created "insta-fame", putting a number of the unknown on the radar. I am not disagreeing with internet fame by any means, however, I was taken back because I've never actually heard anyone consciously brag about being blogged or Tumbl'd. It's like saying, "I'm kind of a big deal." Well sorry I asked. I've met people through social media and networking, however, I guess I would never conclude my blogged picture would be the first place to assume where I would have met someone.
