Blogtember- Blogging/Social Media Changes

I have decided to participate in Blogtember. It seems like something that would be pretty fun. I have no idea if I'll be able to actually do this, but I'm going to give it a try!

Today's prompt:

Discuss ways that blogging or social media has changed you.
Blogging has given me an opportunity to meet and connect with people I would otherwise never encountered. I have meet some great people through blogging who have turned into friends.
It has also opened up a whole new world for me...I'm being introduced to new locations, ideas, products, books, tv shows, music, businesses, etc. Blogging has introduced me to a lot of new things- some I like, some I don't.
In addition, it has given me an outlet and an opportunity to do something I love- write. Blogging has also 'broaden my horizons'...I've read books that I normally wouldn't read, go to restaurants I normally wouldn't go to, try products I normally wouldn't try and even attend events I normally wouldn't attend, just so I can talk about them on my blog. It also motivated me to try new things (projects on Pinterest, recipes, etc), again, just to report the outcome on the blog.
As for social media...most of the above applies. But social media also allows me to stay up to the minute on current and world events (from births of celebrity babies to impending world conflict). It has also allowed me to stay connected to family and friends.
Don't even get me started on the whole 'Global Village' concept...a theory that I support and love.
