The Dream to Meet Mark Zuckerberg – Founder of Facebook

Recently in the last 10 years or so, social media has been booming and blossoming like wild flowers. It is incredible how social media is such a viral and powerful tool in our lives which many of us use it for our businesses, ourselves, to communicate with friends, family and colleagues, and Mark Zuckerberg made that possible with Facebook. Mark is the founder and creator of the giant social media outlet and now more than a billion users are on the website.

All of a sudden A few weeks ago, as I was sleeping, I had this dream that I had met with Mark Zuckerberg and we teamed up to build another social media and networking outlet called “SocialCore” which went viral in seconds, which then millions of people joined our launched website within the week. I remember in my dream, I had flown to California in San Francisco, then Chicago, New York, Boston, Seattle, Vancouver, Montreal and other places to brand, market and do many interviews with Mark Zuckerberg to Television, YouTube and other media outlets in Newspapers and more. Then it went global to other continents of the world. It was something so incredible. It was quite the exciting dream, that I didn’t want to wake up, and just keep letting it happen.

Now, with all that said, I really want to meet the King of Facebook, and have dinner with him, and discuss about the leading industry of our world, and pick his brain about this awesome trend of social media going on. Mark and I are only a year and 14 days apart.  It is quite amazing to communicate to people across the world and send e-mails, messages, pictures, videos, likes, groups and other things in an instant. Without this industry, I wouldn’t have met most of my friends whom are so close to me now, I would not have had such beautiful and great fans who support me and my blog, and so much more like they are my family which they are part of my family which I am ever so grateful for Facebook and the journey I am going through now and will never stop. Thank you Mark Zuckerberg. I can hug you a thousand, million times. I appreciate it very much.

Happy 10th Birthday Facebook! Taking Social Media To A New Level

It was 8 years ago that I joined this social media website to stay in touch with family, friends, people in relative to me and people I have met through my travels and beyond. Little did I know, that the circle would get bigger. I met some incredible, beautiful, lovely people from this social media website that I began to meet some of them in person a few years later, which made the world a smaller place. I have yet to meet a few people who I so badly want to meet that I met from other friends on Facebook by merely commenting on a picture or status message and we automatically grew fond of each other, so we added each other and our friendships have blossomed since then.We have become like a family and its an amazing feeling to know that you can take time away from life’s busy schedule and converse and keep updated with your Facebook Family online.

Facebook unites many people around the world. Its incredible on how things fall into place, and see how many people are interested in the same things you are by just joining groups, pages and fan pages of a famous personality, idol, or other miscellaneous things.

Facebook definitely makes the world smaller and in seconds a lot of photos, videos, links, news, sending wishes for birthdays, baby, wedding, engagement, graduation, university announcements, invitations to events and parties, status messages, comments, messages, likes, groups, pages, businesses, food, restaurants, menus, recipes, radio stations, entertainment, movies and other things gets transmitted throughout the world. Sometimes all you need is Facebook to get all your news and information with the help of Links of course. I love Facebook because it’s a website that I am so grateful for and for Mark Zuckerberg who created this so that our communication becomes easier with the world and encountering many people on all walks of life.

Thank you Facebook for Connecting me to the world and to people I would never have met if it wasn’t for you. I am so blessed to have you all on my list and I love you all very much! Mind you, I am very careful with my selections on who I choose to add-on my friends list. I have been around on the Internet since 1997 and I am very well-educated when it comes to social media moguls and everything else.

If anybody has anything bad to say about Facebook, it’s because of the way you use it, Some use it carelessly, some use it to do bad things, some use it to do stupid things. As long as you use Facebook wisely and know what you are doing, and what you are sharing, posting and who you have on your Facebook account, that is good, but do not post every single aspect of your life as it can be misinterpreted. So the bottom line is, if you do not want your personal business on a social media site, do not post it at all because somebody can see it within the second you post it. Some things have to remain private and don’t use Facebook to bully others, hurt or offend other people, Photoshopping in a bad way and making insensitive posts. Post wisely, because each thing you post does not go away, even after deleted. Especially on a Social Media website, that can be accessed by billions of people around the world. So be careful, exercise caution and use it to inspire, to be kind, to do great things with it like communicating, and enjoying it.

Do you use Facebook in a great way? Do you have an account? If so, what are your thoughts about the social media website? What do you like or not like about it? I would love to hear your opinions on it. How can you spread the awareness to use Facebook in a good manner and not use it in the wrong way?

Most about Facebook is good, incredible, and awesome and I believe that Facebook has changed the interface of communications forever. I wish FB Continued success throughout the years. Heres to strengthening communication of people from a distance, and cheers to everlasting friendships through Facebook across the many miles around the world. Happy Birthday Facebook! Heres to another 10 years and beyond!

Never Give Up On Your Passion – Keep Reaching For The Stars

In My life, I have been so passionate about many things, and one of them is to write. I have been doing that for 11+ years now, and I am not stopping on what I am passionate about. Not only does writing interest me and what has been instilled in my life for more than a decade now, but I know I have so many other great skills and talents I want to utilize in this limited life. I want to make a difference in this world, I want to shine, I want to get to where I have always dreamed of. In the last little while, I have been walking like I am on the red carpet of an award show, and holding something that resembles an award and pretending that I am accepting that award and thanking everyone, and being so grateful. Well, I do not want to pretend anymore.

I want to make it a reality, and I want to one day feel that feeling of so many people being proud of me, and my accomplishments. No dream is unrealistic, and no dream is too big and out of reach. When you are passionate about something and feel so incredible, amazing, and wonderful about, you got to try your best, you got to reach for the stars and I know that it will not be an easy task to do so, but eventually you will get there. I know I cannot just sit behind a computer screen and write and write. I must get out there to shine and head out to where I can make my dreams a reality. God has a plan for you. Maybe not now, but in the near future or someday. I am just so happy that I have discovered my God given skills and talents, that someday I will represent All Armenians in the community and basically the community of the world of all nationalities, all walks of life and do my best in this life.

I know I must do this on my own, and nobody will walk in my journey to get there and reach for the stars as I must stand on my own two feet, I can’t just keep talking and writing about it like I am now,  but I do believe that the more people that get my name out there, the more people that know of me and about me and my purpose, the more better it will be. Somebody in the entertainment industry, an idol of many people, a famous personality will see my blog. I want to clarify, that I am not just doing this to get myself famous for the sake of getting famous and getting the publicity I want, but its to make a difference, its to do something fulfilling to reach to many people as I am a people lover, and I am a people person, even in my local community, and surroundings.

I just love to write, I love to get my feelings, my words and myself out there for the world to see me and who I am. I know I have a lot to give out to the world, and I know I can do this. I will not let negative, jealous and those who do not believe in me that I can’t do it, that I can’t get there, because I can, and I will.

God bless you all and Thank you to those who believe in me. Your support means so much more. I love you all!

Talin’s Journey to Hollywood – My Vow To Fans

In the past 11 and a half years, I have taken this journey into writing for my Armenian community newsletters, writing scripts for my drama class back in high school, getting great marks in English class, always writing speeches for my Armenian community, where I had the pleasure of having the opportunity to conduct public speeches, where I got so excited to do, and I had standing ovations after my speeches and soon after I would have many people greet me throughout the event, where people would compliment me on a job well done. After a few years writing for my Armenian Community, I resorted to online posting since Facebook was established, and soon after I began the wonderful world of Blogging and engaging into social media a lot more, where I can put my thoughts, feelings, and the way I see things into light.

Having said all of that, Writing has been a passion of mine for so long now and I plan to utilize my skills, talent and my enthusiasm to fulfill my dreams of writing for big productions in Hollywood, California in Los Angeles, where I can grow and adapt and make my writing journey one that will mean so much to me. I know in Hollywood there is a lot of competition, there are thousands of people who want to be in that position where they want to make a name out of themselves in the public eye and for everyone to know that person. I know you are probably wondering what I can bring to the entertainment industry? That is a simple question to answer, simply by saying that, I know I can bring fresh new ideas to the productions, and big television and movie corporations and especially making the fans my #1 priority, as that should matter in the end as that is the main reason why the entertainment industry survives today, as many Actors, Actresses, Directors and Producers have said at award shows and interviews on television.

In the past month and a half, I have encountered and met many new friends online from many places in the world and sharing with them my views, their feelings, emotions and opinions on the whole Michael Muhney and Billy Miller Case of being Let go from The Young And The Restless Soap Opera on Television, and so much more that caused a major blowout with many fans being disappointed with the outcome, and thousands and thousands of fans took it to social media websites, magazines, newspapers, and other news outlets to share their emotions, and those fans are serious about not watching the show after January 30th, 2014 when it will be the last time we see Michael Muhney or Billy Miller and it is sad to see them go with the poor writing and story-lines that have been airing lately and fans are working so hard to get the actors that we love on the show back and bring great quality writers who can render and work their great craft, where fans can finally be happy, satisfied with the outcome and mainly make us smile and wait impatiently to come home from work or school to tune into our favorite show, to PVR pre-record the show, so that the fans can watch it. If things are not dealt with in a proper fashion, Fans maybe lost for good, and they can tune into other soap operas and they can do something else with their time.

Also, with that being said, I want to get to Los Angeles, I want to be able to look at that Hollywood sign on the hills everyday, and say I made it, I want to wake up everyday with those big tall palm trees of California and say, I made it, and I want to get that satisfaction, that pleasure into know that I made fans smile, that I made them feel important because they are important to me, and I promise and make that vow to my fans, that whatever I do, and will do, it is for the great benefit of you and I will one day get on the Movie Critics Awards, Golden Globe Awards, Screen Actors Guild Awards, The Oscars, The Academy Awards, Peoples Choice Awards, Emmy Awards, Prime-time and Daytime, and when and if I win those awards, I will dedicate it to the fans firstly, and I will say, without Fans, our careers will not be where it is, and it would never exist. Thank you fans. It is all about making priorities, It is all about putting people first. I want to know that what I have or will do will blossom the entertainment industry and how incredible life can be for those who depend, who dedicate their lives to our craft and what we do.

If I can one day get this chance, if I can one day get to where I want to be, I will work so hard, accept and take on many challenges, and I will be prepared for whatever comes my way. I know it is easy to say it now, and it is easy to talk, but where I stand, there will be not that much talking, and there will be action taken with every vow I take for my fans, and for every single person whom I will work with or work for and create a family in the entertainment world. I am so excited and ready for this phase of my life. I cannot do it without you all and without your help to send me there. Thank you to those who believe in me and thank you so much for the sweet and lovely comments. I appreciate that so much. This is for you!

Why Do Good Soft Hearted People Always Get Knocked Down?

Recently, in life there have been some unpleasant things going on in general that I am not liking whatsoever. For example, when you are so great with what you do, and who you are as a person in your job like, and when so many people who are fans and supporters of that actor/actress on a TV show or Soap Opera, people high up always tend to ruin a good thing and they do not even realize that many fans and supporters hearts will be broken from a good hearted and soft hearted person getting let go from the excellent work that they do. It really is terrible knowing that you are just a number and can be replaced like your nothing when your time is up or not. They need to realize that, messing with fans emotions and feelings and taking fans for a ride is not a laughing and joking matter. It is quite serious and that is losing and betraying the trust of all of us who are/were supporters. These people controlling and making decisions seem like they do not even care. Its very sad and disgusting.

Its like ordinary people in daily general life. In the world people take advantage of you, and do not even care about you and your feelings and the outcome of it all, because they know that they can keep asking you, and counting on you to do things and you never say no and they know that they can get anything from that person, they know they can run and walk all over you because they know how to get things done, and they do not care who gets hurt from it all.

Its something that I cannot make sense of at all and I just need to ask why Good and Soft-Hearted people are often the ones who get knocked down, get mistreated and shafted when not needed anymore? It is so unfair, life is so unfair, especially to the good people, Easily being replaced or looking for another person to do the same thing to. I just cannot understand it at all, and I am trying to look for answers, that I cannot even look for.

In this life, sometimes being a soft-hearted, good hearted, person does not work in some cases. Learning to speak up,  being tough, putting your foot down, standing up for yourself and your rights and saying no once in a while does not  hurt, it just puts others to the ultimate test to see if they are real and good friends to you and to see if those people are walking all over you. Sometimes there are people who take others for a ride all if not most of the time and the Soft and Good hearted person does not see it and will do anything and everything for other people, but when it comes to that individual, and when you ask the same from others its always a struggle to get things in return. I know some do things all the time from people without asking anything in return, but its nice to be acknowledged once in a while and having others do nice things for you.

Some realize that what they are doing is wrong, and they still do it because they do not even have an ounce of decency in them and they do not care who they hurt in the process, unfortunately they always run to the good and soft people because they know that they can play with that persons heart, and emotions. It is sickening. I am just so frustrated because I have been there, I have been through so much with always saying yes, I have been naive, I have been blinded by being used, with people always putting me to the side when not needed anymore, and a lot of fake people are around and this society has become that. Fake people hurt others like crazy, and It puts a scar in your life, because no matter what you do, its like Damn if you do, Damn if you don’t. Now, from your perspective, what do you think of this? What do you do when this issue arises?

In the meantime, Do not worry, keep up being great, soft-hearted people in this world, they are great traits, keep it up, As for those fake people, and those who take others for a ride, someday, I hope that they will realize and sit down and think long and hard and say what I am doing is wrong, and I should stop it, apologize to people and make better choices in society with socializing with others. It will make the world a better, friendlier and nicer place. I hope that I will see that day.

Have you learned to be more tough in this life? How have you handled it? Would like to hear from you.

My Hollywood Dream – My Big Break – My Journey to LA

In life we all dream of something we want to do, want to be, and where we want our life to be, who we want to meet, what we wish for, and not letting others rain on your parade and not letting others put you down on what you feel and what you dream of and what you want to work so hard for, and watching the Golden Globe Awards last night, made me realize that it is possible to reach that point and its my dream to one day wear a great dress, to have my name announced to get up on stage to receive this prestigious and incredible award for great achievement.

When I visited Hollywood and Los Angeles area in October, 2012, My emotions were running high and did a lot of thinking and reflection atop of The Griffith Observatory, and said I will get there someday and I too will be on top of that Hollywood Hills looking down at Los Angeles where the stars are, and I too will get my big break.

There is no such thing as an unrealistic dream. Everyone has the right and is entitled to dream whatever they want to dream, everyone has a purpose in life. I know sometimes some dreams take a while for it to come true, some dreams do come true and some do not, but do not lose hope in your dreams, do not lose faith in whatever you want to do, see, and discover. The sky is the limit.

I am working so hard with my writing, writing everyday, spending countless hours on social media, social networking, tweeting, having my Facebook Fan page, enrolling myself to entertainment outlets in Hollywood and other places like movies, soap operas, mini series, Television series, but with the amount of e-mail these people receive have been staggering and sometimes I do not even know if they read everything which gets me a little discouraged, but I am not giving up in getting myself out there to get noticed and hopefully to fulfill my dreams, working my butt off to make my dreams a reality.

I know you may think that I am trying to seek attention, but I am not.  I know I can do this, I will not let negative people put my dreams down, I will not let jealous people get in the way of my happiness and my hopes and dreams as nobody should do that to anybody, but to encourage them and give them that push and positivity in life..

I cannot do this without you my family, friends and fans.  I cannot do this without those connected somehow to the Entertainment industry, and to get my name out to Hollywood would mean so much to me. You have no idea how important this is to me. I have found my calling and I plan to utilize my energy and my enthusiasm to make it in this world and make each and everyone of you my family, friends, fans proud.

My #1 priority will be the people (my fans) and those who will engage into my career which I hope will take off and I will do great things and I will make the entertainment industry shine even more. I love you all, and thank you to my supporters. This ones for you!

Without Fans, The Entertainment Industry Is Nothing

In life, most of us if not all of us in this world enjoy the entertainment industry, Some of us like all aspects of entertainment, and some enjoy only one kind, and many Television, Music, Movie, Soap Operas, Radio shows, Talk Shows, and other Entertainment Personalities get discovered, and some by luck, and some by just walking in to audition for a part, and some just get lucky naturally, but they are extremely lucky to have fans like us to support the entertainment industry. It is the fans who spend so much money to go see movies, to go to concerts to watch our favorite singers, to watch television shows, to go to events where our favorite celebrities will be there, Fans spend money to fly or drive for countless hours to go see their admired celebs in the entertainment industry. Some fans buy merchandise, posters and other things to decorate their personal space with them all. This industry plays a huge role in our life, and the pleasures we receive from it all.

Now, the bottom line is that how would these celebrities, big Television, movie, Corporations, Broadcasting companies and people get all this money to spend like it is nothing to  live with luxurious homes, mansions, villas, cars, boats, yachts, private planes, who dine in classy restaurants, who shop for expensive fashion, who live the life, that some if not all of us dream of having without the support of Fans? They need to be thankful to us all the time, and getting to meet our favorite actors and actresses and other famous people should not be complicated at all. Signing autographs, taking pictures with fans, and including them as much as possible is so important. Some do not realize how important it is. I some people are crazy for their Entertainment personalities, and I know security can be tightened, but Hypothetically speaking if I were to be a famous entertainment celebrity, Fans will be my #1 priority and they will be above anything else, because without them the Entertainment industry will be nothing.

These award shows where celebrities always thank the fans, which is very sweet and thoughtful of them to mention that and It is very important to always acknowledge fans. Fans dedicate most of their lives to entertainment, some create websites for their favorite personalities, some create message boards, they take themselves to social media and create fan pages for people to join in and share with each other how fans feel, and have fun together and making friends with other fans.

These broadcasting corporations, and television companies think it’s a good thing to change a TV personality from a show that we have gotten used to, but it should not happen, Unless the TV personality is not able to perform due to health reasons, very personal family reasons, that is okay, but do not change somebody for the sake or changing them. It is not good for fans, it is not good for the show. Ratings will go down, and fluctuate up and down, and sometimes it can put permanent damage to the show, that is why a lot of shows do not last, and some get cancelled, because there is not quality content in some. Nowadays Television rarely has great quality shows, and most of which get cancelled before the end of the Television series season. I hope these big TV and Movie companies make good decisions and hire great people to do the work and for us to enjoy

The bottom line is to never mess with fans feelings, emotions and their dedication to an aspect of any entertainment genre. It is wrong, and it is important to always put fans first, besides were the ones putting bread and butter on tables, and were the reason why these entertainment personnel live such luxurious lifestyles. So, they need to think about us and what we want out of it all and ask us if it is okay. What do you think about this? I would love to hear what you have to say. Thanks, and look forward to hearing some opinions. Best wishes.
