Social Media: Finding Your Way Through The Mire
Social Media is a great tool to share information quickly and virally. It can also be a hindrance as we spend more and more time online. For the casual web surfer or individual just getting his/her feet wet in the world of social media, it can be a swamp out there.
And, the landscape is always changing.
I’ve been blogging for many years, and it truly hasn’t died. But, the popular blogs out there started out with humble beginnings, then turned into gargantuan social media driven websites that get millions of visits per day.
My website isn’t one of them. And if I had the crystal ball or magic formula to get even thousands of visitors to my site per day, I’d happily share the wealth.
Unfortunately, I don’t.
But what drives me to continue on?
It’s my love and passion to write. I truly love to express myself in the blogging realm and will continue to do so, regardless of whether this website is mega-successful or not.
I think my site is quite popular in its own right. Based on my webstats, I get hundreds of hits per day which are unique visitors. And I typically get a couple dozen return (or regular) visitors.
But, for the New Year I’d like to finally begin the process of web building and truly building an audience. And I’ll try to once again make some changes to the site to try and compromise between my activities as a blogger and my activities as a musician.
I’m still Randomguru, which to me symbolizes my need to do things randomly or in the moment, or in the Zen… but I need to start thinking about what my readers want instead of just writing for myself.
And so a new project begins…
