Yay! Not only did i finally figure out how to fix my blog section, but i am writing stuff down again. So my posts will take a bit of a different direction as i have decided i will write about things i think about in the creative relm i work in, or what ever ticks my mind honestly. A short update of the past year i have been working for an app company for the past year. Amongst other things social media is one of the responsibilities i hold.
So on the hot topic of social media, this is only something i got into as if you want to have success as a photographer having a social media presence is pretty dam important. So when my boss called me the social media guru in the office laughed, coz honestly i still think im far from it.
this all writers are familiar with, as i know for a fact i am not one. Determining my voice is always impossible, do i sound professional enough, or do i remind my audience im a human? OR are my posts interesting at all? If your like me i just miss posting random junk … i need to do more random.
Now when it comes to interaction its really important you interact with your followers, so this can be hard as well as easy. To be frank this is why i like to meet the people i interact with on social media, i have zero time all the time and i care way to much what i say? Geez man. BUT i also frikken love to procrastinate and space out for my brain to breath HELLO TUMBLR *chuckles*
All the aps!
There is a mad amount of platforms to be on now days, i remember when i was working for myself full time i could make time to update all platforms ‘man was i bored or something?’ Lets list all the crazy platfroms i know i have a profile on … prepare yourself o_o
Facebook, twitter, Instagram – the obvious. Then theres Pintrest , google +, you tube, tumblr , Snapchat, Behance, linked in, deviant Art. .. aaand thats what i can think of for now.
See if your like me you run into your first problem of gee where do i even keep up? I know theres repost software to share on multiple platforms but i hate how robotic one sounds – and why ? Im stubborn yeah.
This pretty much is why i have run into the problem of not enjoying social platforms anymore. Just feels like a massive keeping up with the human race nonsense. Discussion groups & what is currently going down so it looks like i don’t hate people D: . Plus i now do it for work on top of having my own profile i just get all o_o :<
On top of all of this, i have truly began to appreciate the power of writers, they are about some of the best people at managing all of this. Social media is still fun don’t get me wrong. I guess i get way to caught up with what kind off message i am trying to send to my audience. Here’s to letting go and being more me, boom!
