I’m kinda tired about hearing / seeing:
On twitter people with 10,000 followers and they are only following 50 people. Come on….and then most of their tweets are BROADCASTS, like once a day, from a blog post. That is not SOCIAL MEDIA. I don’t care….Social Media is about INTERACTING, talking to people, FOLLOWING BACK. Listening, not broadcasting.
And it kinda scares me to see those people…….just seems full of themselves, trying to show off to the world they are important. I love those people who follow back, interact with people they are online with. Saying how they really feel.
That is what builds trust, that is who someone will approach more easily…..and that is definitely who I am trying to be.
Then I am still kinda knocked off my feet by those saying I gotta stop blogging for free. Jeeez people. There are other ways to make money on the internet. And there are longer term strategies of internet marketing rather then just spamming and throwing up advertisements and asking people to pay you to write.
I think I need to be BOLDER online. Today there isn’t the mask to hide behind, if you don’t go out there and talk about yourself, you are just letting others have the opportunity to do it for you!
And I’ll be honest, I’m having a bad day, and stressed….trying my best to get out of it, reading the motivational quotes stream on twitter. Talking long walks outside. Writing down the reasons why, and its lots……but there are also lots of reasons I need to be happy, I am very fortunate person.
ITS JUST EXTREMES. Trying to do so many things, so many countries. Timezones, projects. Financial, banking, banks blocking me because I’m in Philippines. Workers not showing up. Positive is – I am getting a better CORE team, meeting more and more great people online and offline. And I have my health.
But just getting weighed down today, need a vacation. Tired of making so many MAJOR decisions that really will affect my business for years to come.
But that is what I signed up for, and that is what I simply have to accept, as Hasan just told me a week and a half ago.
So enjoy the ride, I think I have to CRANK IT UP A NOTCH and be even more OPEN and BOLD.
