The Term “Influence” Does Mean A Lot

Years ago I read an article by Chris Brogan titled Improve Your Influence. The most interesting thing I found in the post was the first line, where he stated “The term “influence” doesn’t mean a lot, and yet, it seems to be the holy grail for online social media people. The reason it was interesting is that the rest of the article indicated that he pretty much understood how influential he was, whether he was trying to get there or not. Some of the name dropping, which I’m going to do some day (smile), shows that he knows and has talked to some fairly influential people.

Social Circles of Influence by Anne Adrian

Being more influential has always been one of my goals. In some ways I’ve become that; in others, I’m woefully normal. lol Circumstances can either enhance or diminish one’s influence. Circumstances are… well… circumstances. 🙂

10 Things I’ve Learned About Giving A Workshop

As some of you know, I’ve done some workshops on social media marketing; I’ve also done workshops on other topics. I hope to do more in the future, but it’s not my main focus at this particular time.

To Be Taught by Katrina Lopez

Back in 2010 I not presented a social media marketing seminar, but it was the first time I did the same exact workshop more than once. If I ever decide to do something like that again, or even a one-off presentation, I need to continue to refine the process to a degree. One-off presentations are normally a bit different, mainly because some of the participants might talk with other potential visitors, and thus you want to always try to be better each time you do a live presentation. But that’s also an assumption, as I’ve learned throughout the years.

With that said, here are 10 things I’ve learned from the two presentations I did back in 2010; some of these apply to all presentations in some way:

Reserve Index

Have you ever heard of something called the Reserve Index? Truthfully, unless you’ve been online for at least 14 years you probably haven’t. I learned about it back in 2003, and every once in a while I go back to it and do the test again.

road-adventure

In essence, it’s a self evaluation form to help you determine just how comfortable you are with your life and ideas based on the questions you need to answer if you can, of how you can improve your life even further for your peace of mine. Some people seem to be scared of doing self evaluation; y’all know I’m not one of those people. I also believe no one should be scared of things like this, since you’re probably the only one who’ll ever see it.

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.
