Let me go ahead and name a few: :)

1. There are soooo many social networking sites!! I did know there was a lot but, I’ll be completely honest…I didn’t know there were over 200!!  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_social_networking_websites

3. I learned how to start my own blog via http://wordpress.com/to be honest, I never thought I would be a blogger but, I must admit it’s actually kind of fun :)

4. I learned what a new blogger should and shouldn’t do…two major points: whatever you do don’t get discouraged and always have a plan before you blog *

5. I learned many new social media terms…SEO, SEM, flash mob, blimple, lurker, troll, just to name a few… :)
