Hello Again! Some Lessons on Blogging on Social Media…

Wow! Nearly seven months since I last blogged here. There was a reason.

Around that time, I was made aware that The British Library was starting the process of archiving Facebook updates for historical reasons. We’re talking history books here – or the future equivalent. I made the decision to blog elsewhere than here. I blogged daily … on Facebook.

The very first etchings on the cave wall are the ones with most historical importance. I wanted my etchings all over the wall. By now, enough information will have been harvested from Facebook that the people now social media blogging won’t be as important to future history boffins as those of us in the first three to six months. It’s still worth a try though. Remember that all your public Facebook posts may be searched by your descendants. There will be no myth or wonder about you. Your personality is written on the web in clear terms for anyone who cares to look.

Are you the one who posts food?

Are you the one who blames others for their misfortune?

Are you the one who inspires?

Maybe think about that.

I also wanted to see whether it was possible to make a living without a blog. It is, but I’m not sure whether it’s possible to make a living in the writing world without actually writing, and I’m not sure you can make a living in the information marketing world without blogging in some format. It may be that you micro-blog on Twitter, Google Plus, Facebook, et al or video blog on YouTube. It may be that you blog via email to your list. It may be that you, like me, ‘blog’ by writing magazine columns every month. Whatever mode of expression you choose, reach out to your audience with considered thought on a regular basis.

Think we last spoke, I picked up a column in What’s Working Now magazine. It’s required reading if you want the in depth mindset training that gives you a marketing edge online. Here’s the link to check it out.

In the next post, I’m going to share with you what I did in the last two quarters to change my income profoundly, and free me up to take the time out of my working life to write, dream, and be.

The marketing system that I use to earn my own advances as a writer.

    Social media marketing has the ability to carry more than one conversation [and promote your brand] online at the same time in a variety of locations across the globe. That ability is something that does not come cheap in the offline marketing game. The platforms for the conversations to occur are only growing in strength and popularity and more and more companies are really starting to embrace social media.
