Beach Drive Blog and Social Media

I’m pretty involved with various forms of social media personally and professionally.  I really enjoy the information and connections it provides.  With my lil’ ol’ neighborhood blog, Beach Drive Blog, I’ve pretty much stuck with just the blog.

Last year I added “Ning” which provides the community forums linked above.  Recently Ning has announced on their blog that they are going to start charging for their site in the next 10 weeks.  They have not announced fees yet and if it’s nominal, I may keep the Ning site…so far Beach Drive Blog only cost my time and energy.  Once I have more information, I’ll let you know what changes (if any) will take place.

Yesterday I created a Facebook Page for Beach Drive Blog.  If you’re on Facebook, I invite you to join our page and be a fan “like” us.

What else is brewing for Beach Drive Blog?  I would still love to have more neighbors contributing to the blog.  You can be a BDB Reporter, Author or Photographer–just send me an email and let me know you’re interested.   The more people we have participating, the more interesting the blog will be.  Plus, I don’t know what’s going on all the time along the neighborhood that spans Beach Drive.

How many of you are on Twitter?  You may have noticed that I’ve added a Twitter feed on the right side of this blog.  Currently it’s showing Seattle tides and what ever West Seattle blog is tweeting.   I may add more information to this feed and perhaps create a Twitter profile for Beach Drive Blog…are any of you on Twitter?  (If so, follow me @mortgageporter).

UPDATE:  You can visit (and join or “like”) Beach Drive Blog on Facebook by going to
