I’ll be writing about my adventures, from my point of view, while offering my opinion on whatever the current matter happens to be. I hope you will enjoy it, if for no other reason, because you’ll get to see just how crazy my mind and reactions can be sometimes.
The SheWrites.com Experience
Having an opportunity to share my thoughts and or ask questions to the SheWrites.com community was a wonderful experience. I thoroughly enjoy reading and commenting on such periodic columns as Reality Check. I’ve learned so much from other authors who’ve been willing to share and put themselves ‘out there’ in efforts to improve themselves and help others.
When my chance arrived to contribute, I decided to pose a question and open myself up a little. I asked the question: Does redundancy work in social media? <-click here to see the original post
A few people where kind enough to leave some help comments and insights regarding this matter, and this is what I’ve surmised.
1. If you try to have fun with social media, it’s not that bad. Sure you want to promote yourself, but sometimes just connecting with someone else and not focusing on yourself leaves a bigger and better impression. Have fun!
2. Be yourself and be real. If you’re writing about something you are truly interested in (which you should be), let people see that. Show and share about your interests and appeal to others who are interested in the same kinds of things.
3. Good quality over quantity. If your ideas are well-developed, interesting, and well-written, people of similar interest will be drawn to you, whether quickly or slowly. Write and share good stuff!
Thank you for taking the time to read this post. If you like it let me know and share it with others. See you next time, Toi Thomas. #thetoiboxofwords
