How about This? 3 Things My Blog is All About
1. Social Media Marketing
Are you sitting there, wondering who is writing this blog post? Are you wondering who’s behind this website for social media management and entrepreneurship? Aren’t you wondering why you should trust me over someone else who might be publishing the same kind of content?
Yeah, I’m sure you are, my new friend. I’m here today to let you in on a few secrets so you can know more about me. I see it as a problem if you don’t know me well enough to trust me. That is why I want you to read further so you can learn more about me as a blogger.
Being a lover of blogging like I am, I know the power of sharing one’s opinions with others. I know what power I’m giving you as my new beloved reader(s). I want you to learn more about me so you can feel more at ease when you’re reading my blog posts here.
I don’t want to be that elusive blogger who only cares about the numbers. I care more about helping you through blogging and social media management than the analytics of site views. Read further to find out why I say that.
I found my love for social media in 2012 when I was tasked by a former supervisor to manage the company’s Facebook page. I also managed their website development and Craigslist account for advertisements.
I did this for 2 years until 2014, when I left this company to take on a job elsewhere. I never lost my love be for social media management and desperately wanted to return to it in the future. I returned to my position as social media manager with the company I started out with in late 2016.
I couldn’t be happier of the skills I’ve learned from this position. This job started me on the path that led me to this place in my life. Of course, I’m grateful toward my supervisor for letting me have this experience since it’s helped me learn valuable skills to help YOU.
I’ve been reading since I can remember. I actually had a huge problem with putting books down in school. It got to the point where teachers had to keep a strict eye on me during lectures because I was always reading something.
I’m not ashamed to admit that, though it never got me into too much trouble. I never got detention for it, though I got it for other things. Team hers didn’t mind me reading during detention since they also knew they couldn’t stop me from doing it.
They knew I wouldn’t get into any trouble because I was more interested in my book than what was going around me. That’s why you can usually find me with a book when I’m not working on client projects. I know better than to read during work hours. (ha ha!)
This one is particularly hard to admit since it’s more of a behind the scenes admission. I also want you to know so that you know more about the reasons behind my decisions. I’ve had severe anxiety, especially in social situations, for as long as I can remember.
People with anxiety, especially the socially anxious ones, tend to stick to home. We don’t often hang out with friends since it makes the anxiety out of control. It’s not easy to deal with on normal occasions. Why would we want to go out and make it worse, yo?
In fact, the thought of doing that makes me shudder violently. It’s like asking if you want to have a vital body part cut off. I’m sure you don’t want that so people with anxiety shouldn’t be pushed. I don’t let the anxiety rule my life, however. I wouldn’t have admitted to it otherwise, right?
This is something I developed from my father. I grew up with music from great bands like Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones, The BeeGees, and the like. That’s all he would listen to in the car — music from the 1970s on his Sirius radio.
I never minded that since I had earbuds jammed in my ears with music pounding with the likes of Avril Lavigne, Morgan Page, Black Veil Brides, and Stitched Up Heart. Though my father is no longer with us, this is a part of him that definitely lives on through his oldest child: me.
I typically have music blasting at a relatively low volume while writing unless it results in a distraction for my writing muse. I do like listening to either white noise or classical music during my writing time for that reason.
Yup…since the mid-1990s, folks. I know I’m dating myself with that admission but I don’t even care at this point. Writing has always been a huge part of my life like reading has. I’m not sure when I started to write but no one in my family is surprised that i turned to freelance writing at one point.
I probably shouldn’t be surprised either, though I didn’t realize freelance writing was a thing until last year. Writing has always been a great way for an introvert like me to express myself so that’s why I do so many blog posts per week.
Would I ever stop writing at any point? No…I highly doubt it, to be completely honest. Again, it’d be like cutting off or cutting out a vital organ from my body. I know that’s a violent analogy but it gives you a proper look into just how much I love to write.
I’m glad you now know much more about me as a writer. You also know more about me as a writer, which might lead to trust in me. Having that power with me, name a favorite band or novel for me to read next!
