5 Ways to Stay “Almost Famous” (on Twitter) – Confessions of a Blogging Junkie

almost-famousI am eternally thankful for my following of Blog readers from i-identify and Socialhire . It’s because of re-tweets and the incredible following that Social Hire has all over the world, that I have maintained a twitter following of close to 2k.

Confession, my last post before this one was March of 2014. Blogs like, Don’t Be A LinkedIn Loser and Why LinkedIn Headlines Can Make Or Break You 5 do’s and don’ts   - still to my amazement get a lot of day-to-day attention. One of my Blogs about Doing What You Do With Love got me dozens of private messages and thanks from people who felt reassured by their career choices – no longer wondering if they were on the right path.

I used to hunch over my iPhone at work tweeting in tweet chats and catching that incredible social media buzz you get from all the attention and koodos. Posting my Blogs and getting all that Twitter Love. What a fix. I hear social media attention is The New Currency, it was mine for years. Pretty sure I started and ended my day on twitter. Not so much now. My life has new meaning. Ha! I’m hooked on Instagram

You Ask: Why did I stop Blogging? Answer: I Lost My Mojo (not to be TMI: you can do the math- I’m 53 years old – after my post in 2014 I took the path towards becoming a single mother of three girls who are the light of my life. Luckily now, my X is my BFF = Modern Family = Conscious Uncoupling)

You Ask: Are you Going To Start Blogging Again? Answer: Occasionally – I’ve done my time and a lot of what I’ve talked about over the past 7+ years has now been talked about to death. If a new POV hits me that is disruptive and interesting, I’ll be sure to pull up my Word Press and publish.

You Ask: Why I am Still “Almost Famous” ? Answer: My Posts Are:(and your posts should be…caveat – with less typos than mine)

1)  Relevant and Helpful to a Large Audience - ( Shameless Self Promoters Who Promote You – Big Social Media Brands -Industry Specific Thought Leaders – Communities That Support and Share Your Message )

2) Easy to Read - good images, lists, tips, do’s , don’ts,  ( we are a texting species – less is more)

3) Affectionately Disruptive -  (prod, reveal the truth, bust preconceived notions,  lightly offend)

4) Timeless - Stand The Test of Time

5) Make The People Who ShareLook Good - ( heck we are a society that loves to re-cycle and re-use)

I’ll be slowly redesigning my web site to support my broader interests and those of the communities I am connected to (Health, Fitness, Wellness,Style). I’ll have to tie in my instagram addiction and possibly with the help of my kids’, our stories on Snap Chat .
