My social media addictions...

Where would we be without social media? Ok, so some people would possibly be conversing IRL with their friends without the possibility of Twittering said conversation (moderation is definitely key) but for me it's been a London ice breaker that has put me in contact with a bevy of wonderful people, meals, bloggers, occasions, fascinating events, news updates and many videos of cats. Many.

Twitter - londonkiwiemma 

* Twitter
This is an addiction I can't seem to shake off. There is something great about being able to pick up the random world at the touch of the finger tips, though it's a definitely a time suck.

Facebook - Adventures of a London Kiwi

* Facebook
Ahhh, the facebook. Perfect for snaps, witterings and chatting to pass a coffee break. Oh, and the occasional meme. Divine for elevenses breaks.

Bloglovin - Londonkiwiemma

With the demist of Google Reader, Bloglovin' is really helping me keep all of the blogs I read in manageable order - which says a lot as there are so many interesting ones. I love the fact that blog posts can be marked as read or unread,you can search full blogs or single topics, and it's easy to group likeminded blogistas together. The best part of Blogloin' though? It's the daily/weekly digest emailed directly to you, with snippets of fascinating posts.

Google+ Londonkiwiemma

* Google+
Google+ and I are becoming friends, slowly but surely. It's not quite as easy to pick up as Twitter/Bloglovin' but allows you to do both of the above and branch out and meet other bloggers.

Instagram - Londonkiwiemma
Call me an addict but I love instagram - the plethora of delicious dishes, crazy cats & random shots of people's days. Give me a sunset shot any time - you simply can't beat it. Oh, and 2015 is the year I've decided to master the overhead food shot.

  12. I use Bloglovin too, to keep up with the blogs I follow. I love Twitter, it's the best way to connect with other bloggers. I'm a full on Instagram addict too! Facebook, however, just annoys me. I'd delete my account if there was another way to look after my blog page!

  13. I broke up with bloglovin the other month and moved to feedly which I think was something I probably should have done for a long while - I find it a lot easier to read and follow blogs that way. I do love twitter and instagram, but I have a love/hate thing with facebook.

  14. Ahh, are you finding Feedly better?
    Facebook ditto...!

  15. There seems to be a lot of dislike for facebook - they're messing with everything aren't they?

  16. Instagram is short & sweet punches of sunshine isn't it!

  17. Google+ is still on the back burner social media wise isn't it?

    hehe, this made me chuckle - don't get me started on Bloglovin - I can't actually seem to get into my own account so I've just given up!! I know what you mean about Instagram - single handed biggest social media time investment since I disocvered it!!

  19. I prefer feedly, perhaps because I follow a few news and craft related sites too and it's good to have them all coming up in one place. Plus it seems a lot quicker in publishing blog posts, rather than bloglovin which i've found to be hours behind at times.

  20. Oh no re. Bloglovin - maybe contact them via their helpdesk or Twitter; I've found their team to be really kind!
    I wish I could use instagram to it's full!
