I posted yesterday about developing a design for @scottmckain’s Twitter page. It got me thinking about my social media interactions and how I measure up to others in that regard. I suck, you guys.
I’m weak in all social media aspects with the exception of posting here (according to Wikipedia, blogging is a form of social media although some disagree). I’ve been sharing random stuff on whatifitdid.com since 2008 and I still don’t know why anyone (other than family or close friends) would read this crap.
I guess I don’t really think I have anything to offer when it comes to social media. With no small children I can’t be a ‘mommie blogger’ that’s become so popular; I’m too busy keeping the wheels on the business bus and babysitting an aging dog that I rarely travel; I’m no longer a resident of that “small-town” where this site originated; and there’s way too many business and photography blogs already out there with people who are a lot more knowledgable than I am providing the information. I’m not into tweeting someone else’s quotes 5 times a day or blabbing about what I’m eating for dinner.
You know, I feel like one of those bad Investigation Discovery shows where you have to watch it play out for an hour when the whole darned story could’ve been told in 15 minutes. I guess I’m just not sure where to go from here…
How social are you? What does being involved in social media “give back” to your personal or professional life?
Libby thinks it’s all a big waste of time and I should instead just bask in the sunshine peeking through the windows — right after I wash them.
