From Cynic To Eternal Optimist On Social Media
I can go on a tangent. Fortunately, this post is a mere 500 words long or so. So, while I could tell you the story of my life from a number of angles, I’ll have to keep my focus and stick to my selected heading. Short of words, I punch in a heading based on earlier thoughts. And then I work my prose from that angle. I was correlating my tendency to be a tad too negative at times and how it affected me in the past, with my earlier doubts about SM.
Fortunately, I’m a passionate reader and it wasn’t long before I was able to dispel any old doubts I had about SM. And to be sure, the more you read, the more you learn. For instance, little did I know that SM is the acronym that refers directly to social media. So, forgive me if I’ve been showing this off in my opening lines. And Insta is short for Instagram. FB is short for Facebook, and so on and so forth.
For a long time, I wracked my brain on how I was going to gain more Instagram followers while at the same time getting more people to formally like my regular posts. I had my doubts about purchasing my followers and likes too. I used to believe that when in doubt, don’t go there. But of course it’s true that you need to find out the why’s of your doubts before making a good decision. I never needed to doubt the quality of my work.
And the quality of my Insta-pics is getting better too. Also, I soon discovered that my initial purchase of Instagram followers and likes was a veritable springboard to start getting real people to start following my work and liking it.
Today, you’ve got your own mobile. Whether still at school or stuck in a dead-end job, you can start thinking along the lines of starting up your own business. You’re familiar with YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and all the rest of them, and if you’re on Instagram like many people today, you’ll always be thinking of new ways to get more Instagram followers to like you. Typical stuff guys and girls like you are doing is sending out real zany pic’s so everyone out there can have a real guffaw.
For a few moments, you’re the centre of the social media universe.
I have to say, many guys and girls out there are streets ahead of me. They never feared all these strange gizmos and gadgets that I could never get the hang of. Today, I’m in. Sure enough, I’m posting a lot less than you guys are. And that’s the point I’d like to close off with. It’s great to have your social media but I reckon it’s also healthy to switch off every now and then. Which is why I like to leave my phone at home when I head out for a while.
