Be Patient With Social Media & Networking – It Takes Time & Dedication

In this new generation and in time of social media and networking with this new age in Internet communications technology with information being transmitted in seconds all over the world with so many types of gadgets and electronic devices, I am sure business people, bloggers, advertisers, designers, web designers, those seeking employment, social marketing, promoters feel the pressure of so much competition going on around them with networking and all the time spent with promotions, making a living with billions of people on the world wide web, and As I am sure my fellow bloggers and I feel the pressure all the time. It is an interesting time we live in these days with everything simplified for us and how incredible time has changed with the new age in technology. Now although most companies want you to send an electronic mail resume and cover letter to the employer and sometimes you wonder are they deleting it or are they really reading the resume and cover letter? There maybe 200 applicants for that position. Nowadays it’s become so hard to seek employment because so many people are seeking the same things. Its become such a stressful time, but I believe that patience and getting the right networking and knowing the right people will get you there. Unfortunately it is like that now. It is not a matter of what you know anymore, it is who you know in that company or a referral.

It is just like the way it takes time to build your online profile, sometimes it takes less. It depends on how you promote yourself and how you portray yourself. It takes a lot of patience, determination, dedication to get on up there. The internet has many people, and if social networking, marketing, promotions, writing, blogging, and being a guest blogger for any company or anyone, and if it is your calling, do it, and charge people with a decent amount and do research on how much you should charge for your services, and if you are good at what you do, and how you do it, they will hire you, no problem. Hey, were all great at doing something in the world, and it is important to get yourself out there and not be afraid of taking chances and doing the best of your ability, Creating an online profile for yourself is great, a portfolio is great so that you can share your accomplishments, and when people give you blogging awards, inspirational awards, and if you are on so many peoples blog sites with ping backs, link backs, these are all a plus and when you include all this in your page, you will be praised and you will go to great lengths.

In recent weeks, I have been more interactive with my fans, and those who come to my blog and I try to reply to as many comments as I am able to. I love visiting other peoples blogs, and give them a boost. I know some people struggle to get people to come to their blogs to read what is happening in their world and what they are up to and among writing for a living and making something out of themselves. It takes a long time and I do feel what they are feeling. I started blogging in another blog provider on Google, and I was not getting anywhere and in one year I had about 5000 people only visiting my site and I felt like I was getting no where. My friend suggested WordPress and I said, let me make an account there and in no time at all, the stats kept increasing and when I began to write more and make more content, things just took off from there. I know some of my blogs require improvement on my writing style, and little bit of the grammar, but I am learning and It is never too late to learn. Social Networking is such a great tool and it will take time and effort, but working at it hard will get you to places, you wouldn’t even imagine.

Maintaining your blog, and maintaining your social networking profiles with new content, and also when you create a twitter account and know how to tweet, you will see a big difference and you will see many people and companies starting to follow you. When you are on Facebook, be mindful to know what your posting and how you are posting it. It is good to keep your standards and everything about you high. Keep your head up high, and do not write so many negative status messages and negative quotes as people pick up on it and they wouldn’t want to engage and be interested with someone who is always bringing themselves down. Bring yourself up, and always write about positivity, determination and things you are good at, and qualities that you have. It is important to put yourself out there with the right attitude, enthusiasm and mean what you say when you write positivity and when you say nice things and be kind to others, and make yourself and your reputation high, the sky is the limit and you will have so many offers and so many opportunities knocking, but it all starts with the way you portray your character and your willingness to try and do your best. You can do it, and will see how you will improve.

How you social network and how you deal with situations online will always be something people will remember and don’t be afraid to put your name out there, because your social networking profile will be like your business card and its important to put a nice and professional photo of yourself or a nice photo of you everywhere and keep that trend going. There are many websites such as facebook, twitter, pinterest, YouTube, linkedin, myspace, and more websites that will make it easy for you, but it is all up to you and in your hands on how you deal with the way you handle yourself online. When your a blogger and when your a dedicated blogger, and want to excel and do your best, engage with other authors and those who have published books in the past and contact them and ask them how its done and what is involved. The internet is the biggest research hub of the world. You can find all the tips and tricks and contact information to people. You will be amazed.

Try it out for yourself and see where you will go with life.  Enjoy the whole process and do not be afraid. All the best in your journey!

  1. Your resume will be deleted if there are misspellings and/or grammatical errors. Computer programs can detect them and weed them out.
    You talk about always being positive. So why did you post such negative tweets about Justin Bieber recently?

    • Because Justin Bieber needs to learn how to dress for occasions and he needs to be a positive influence on people especially teens and I know a lot of teenagers like Justin, but he needs to dress properly to receive an important Diamond Jubilee award from Prime Minister Stephen Harper of Canada. I said such things because I have never liked him from the beginning and He needs to learn to be more mature. He said in an interview once that since he is 18 years old, he doesn’t need to tell his parents where he is and what he does and he doesn’t have to call his parents. I am reaching close to 30 years old and I still contact my parents and I tell them where I am and who I am with.

  2. I read this and – to me – it seems as though you’ve taken all the advice given to you over recent months, copied parts of blogs (I recognise quite a lot of my own work here, albeit heavily edited) and turned it all into a post about what everybody has been telling you but which you have, up until now, ignored. Also, you say you’ve been reading blogs – but I don’t see any “likes” from you on any blog I read, even though you say you’ve been hitting that button.

    I’m also curious as to how you are almost 30 but still live with your parents and don’t seem to ever have had a job? I’d been married, had a child, been divorced, made homeless by an ex partner and had a good nursing career by that time.

    • Hello Missus Tribble, There are several millions of blogs on WordPress, and I do read as much as I am able to, but I never copy blogs and paste them. I write all these blogs from scratch and to my knowledge and my experiences. That is outright insulting to me and I do not appreciate that. I have not ignored anyones advice, and I am taking peoples advice. There are a lot of people and my friends that are also on the same boat as me as being unemployed, but I am doing something about it. Day in and day out I keep sending those Resumes, I am working very hard in achieving my goals and my dreams. Everyones path in life is different and everyones goals and aspirations differ, but please do not assume things about me that you do not know about. I blog because I have a passion for it and its a big part of my life, and the audacity to tell me that I copy blogs? That is uncalled for. I never have and I never will. My blog is 100% me and I do not try hard to impress people. I am doing my best to make a difference in this world and doing my best to get people to live a little and giving people hope and energy to go through their days. So please do not tell me I am not taking peoples advice, because I clearly am.

      • I didn’t say that you were copying/plagiarising blogs at all. I merely observed that you’ve read blogs and written something similar to the blogger that you’ve been reading. The fact that you’re telling me that you aren’t using other blogs for inspiration tells me that you don’t read other peoples’ blogs at all – either that or you don’t credit other blog users for giving you the inspiration to write a certain blog post (and if you’ve been inspired it’s only polite to give the original blogger fair credit).

        I’m not sure that a person who has had such a sheltered life and understands nothing of living alone or having a disability has the right to preach “Live a little” when they don’t actually know what living is. I know you mean well, but please live before you preach. Life can be hard, when you’re actually living it.

  3. Hello, I do think your website could possibly be having web browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine
    however, when opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues.
    I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Apart from that, fantastic blog!
