Do People Check Out Your About Page If You Have One?

If you’re a blogger, a self employed entrepreneur, or even a small or large business, have you considered adding an About Page to the online space that you own?

Obviously me!

I have one, next to the list titled 100 Things About Me, which was part of a challenge when I originally wrote it, that I’ve edited here and there over a bunch of years. If you do, cool; if not, why not?

Done With Twitter

I just deleted my Twitter account. Since April 2008, when I signed onto Twitter, it was my favorite social media platform. True, there were some rough periods until I learned how to block people and terms, but for the most part it was wonderful.

closest to Twitter I’m going to get

What I find interesting is that I’ve written a lot of articles about Twitter, including this one from back in February, when my online social media life seemed to be the only thing I could relate to, 5 months after my mother had passed away. I’m surprised I didn’t write about my issues with the “new guy” possibly taking over Twitter, who I’d never heard of until maybe 4 years ago, and didn’t know anything about until last year, trying to back out, the Twitter board working hard to force him to buy it so they could all get rich quickly and then him finally buying it last Friday.

Flipboard And How To Deal With Trolls

Just over 7 years ago, I introduced Flipboard to the visitors of this blog. In essence, it’s a news aggregator of stories from all over the world. It’s comprised of blog posts, newspaper and TV articles and videos on almost any topic imaginable.

physically bigger than trolls, but less dangerous 🙂

I’ve been a fan of Flipboard for all these years, and I’ve spent many nights and early mornings laying in bed flipping through all sorts of stories and such, although this year I’ve been going through a lot of political and societal issues in the United States. This has led me to learn more about Flipboard trolls, how to identify them, how to deal with them, and when to decide not to respond to them. That’s what I’m sharing with you today.

Doing What You Should Be Doing

It’s rare that I have two videos on one article, but today’s the day to be different. Actually, every day is a day to be different, but today I’m being even more different than usual. Sounds convoluted, doesn’t it? That explains me to a T (I don’t know where that phrase came from, and neither does anyone else apparently). Anyway, that’s the best I’ve got. 🙂

In this first video, I question why we don’t do the things we should be doing. Let’s lead with that, and then come back:

Most People Hiring Writers Know Nothing About Writing

Last year I wrote an article titled Are Writers Taken For Granted? It addressed how horribly many people who are trying to write for living or to make extra income are paid, which is still a problem these days.

The last paragraph explains this picture 🙂

At the time I said that I wasn’t going to be shilling myself out there trying to find writing gigs because it felt demeaning. Well, after as bad a last 12 months as I’ve had, I’m back to looking for some writing gigs as I try to reestablish my consulting business.
