I’ve been blogging for a while now, and I am constantly running across new blogs that I like and follow. I really enjoy finding new photography blogs, because I love all the wonderful images and fantastically creative people behind them. (Plus, my computer/connection aren’t that great sometimes, so I very rarely see SL with all the amazing shadows and lights. Stupid cable company. -.-)
As I read through blogs (even ones that aren’t about photography), it seems like every one of them has a Facebook page and a Flickr. (Those two seem to be the most popular – there are of course Plurk, Tumblr, and others.) Now, I’ve blogged repeatedly about my feelings for Facebook. So, even though I would love to be able to keep up with my favorite SL stores, I am NOT going to get on Facebook to do it. (A real downside for me, since LL encourages stores to have Facebook pages, since Facebook likes are tied to your ranking in search. Why they do this, I don’t understand, since Facebook has shown itself repeatedly to be unfriendly to avatar profiles.)
So now I’m wondering if it would be beneficial to me (and help increase my traffic) if I was also on Flickr. If you have a Flickr account, what are your feelings about it? Is it just yet another social media account to keep up with? Is it useful? How? Is there anything I should know before I dive in?
