The blog began to flood the Internet in the late 1990s, pre-dating Facebook (2004), Youtube (2005), Twitter (2006), Tumblr (2007), Pinterest (2009), Instagram (2010), Snapchat (2011) and Reddit (2012).
These forms of social media provide highly interactive and often interconnected forms of communicating information and ideas. Although they are relatively recent phenomena, it seems as though we’ve always been inundated with instant communication.
I have been reading blogs for a number of years and have blogged for our community’s web site for more than a year. I read blogs from other communities of religious women or organizations that relate to the history of women religious and our interests.
