There are many reasons for starting up a blog. For some, it is an expression of what they feel- like a diary where the author can keep tabs on what is happening in his life. Others use blogs to share whatever information or data they have, to the world. Whatever your goals are, making a single or several blogs always require creativity, passion and uniqueness.
Your social network, whether we realize it or not, says a lot about you. Its what draws like-minded people to each other. Even with the less obvious sites like Facebook or Pintrest, where you display your likes proudly for the world to see, who you follow says a lot about your interests when people search for you and land on your page. The “don’t judge a book by its cover” rule, simply doesn’t exist in social media. Be careful what you post on your pages as companies will be judging you by them.
I got Nathan and Lucy all jacked up for a, “super awesome treasure hunt by the water!!”, with treasures including: leaves, pine-cones, pine-needles, sticks, and heck, even dirt. Should you call it a, “super awesome treasure hunt by the water!!”, in your most hyper-enthused voice, it’ll be a hit, and 100 % free.
You can jazz up your social network any way you like. You can also hire a graphic designer to make your pages stand out, or use images edited from Photobucket. You can use instagram proxies to make your pictures stand out and give your network a more retro feel, do it any way you feel that best fits your personality. You want to stand out and catch the eye of potential jobs.
So you may be saying this is nice, but what do I do with the account once I sign up. Well, that’s easy, you just start sharing photos of your daily life that you think are interesting. You don’t even have to have extensive knowledge of photo editing to use this tool. It has a set of filters added for you so when you finish taking your photo, all you have to do is select which one looks best and you’re done.
How are the big players controlling the way we use social media? The big players, meaning Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google+ and LinkedIn? They are all doing their best to make the user experience better while including a way for businesses to reach new customers.
No but seriously, I’ve felt a lot of stretching and pulling happen these past seven weeks as my hormones were finding their new balance, my older two were settling into their new, big-sibling shoes, and as I grabbed the blessed reigns at mothering a new life. Not one of the above will come without a fair amount of growth.
I apologize to Oscar and his family for this posting. I wish him well and am rooting for him to win his fight too. I also apologize to all of my followers for this ridiculous post. I have no ill-will towards anyone and have repeatedly stated that I only seek positivity in my life and for others.
