Loving Life after 50

Social Media and What makes me Happy

I am slowly realizing that following the flock for social media is not really working. I know there is total contradictory advice out there. Get on everything, focus on one, brands want this, brands want that… it can all be so confusing. My advice today focus on the one or ones you love and be damned with everything else. It’s your blog, it’s your brand so what makes you happy.

Social Happy

Wanna know what makes me happy?  Well no surprise Converse and a tribal jumper.  Betcha were not expecting that one were you?  On a serious note, clothes make me happy, sharing clothes makes me happy and honestly sharing life really makes me happy. I love this little piece of the internet that started as an outfit of the day kind of thing.  As I grew my desire to grow this space also grew but I can not let go of my first love.  Outfit posts helps combine all the little pieces of happy.

What I can let go of is this race to achieve what I perceive everyone else has.  Blogger envy can be a dangerous and harmful past time. Chasing your numbers, your followers, heck chasing your products.  I cannot be YOU, I need to be ME.

Social Media

Chasing the tail so to speak can have you running in circles. I cannot be consumed  by every channel or forum that pops up.  My Brand, My social need to be me.  Funny thing is my analytics seem also to be telling me that too. My focus and your focus should be on the channels that you love. If you love it then it in turn will love you.  Your positivity over a channel will shine through.  Stop chasing the algorithm, stop chasing the “keys to success” focus on the channels you love.

Social Love

Do you know what my number one referrer page is? It is almost a tie between Pinterest and Facebook! Works for me because they have always been my favourite children.  I know mom;s are not supposed to have fav’s but guess what we all do.  Truly I am sensing a need to focus on those not on Instagram.  Insta is more for my Insta gratification. For Pinterest, I hope you are also feeling a need to Pin, I truly appreciate every ” pin” you do.  Baha how funny am I.  Feel free to share my posts on Facebook or Twitter, or anywhere else you like.  It helps get my blog out to more people, and I am sure you just can’t wait to spread the word.  On a serious note, shares, likes and comments  all make me feel happy so Thank You
