Reflecting on my Blogging

Hi, how are you doing there stranger? 

sorry its been a while. 

its been a strange couple of weeks. I really did enjoy the Cybher conference, learnt a lot which I think is possibly one of the reasons I haven't blogged for over a week....I think I learnt too much. I think I learnt too much about stuff that scared me.

Evidently this is what I need to do....

Social Media Butterfly

Evidently I need to be active on 
  • Google+ 
  • Facebook
  • Twitter 
  • Pinterest
  • and the blog 
at the same time but not with tailored updates.
wow that's a lot of updates 

Photo Editing on the laptop
I need to make sure I name all my photos correctly so that they can be searchable on Google Images.
but I use my ipad....I dont think I can do this 

And keep all the sizes consistent
well I do that already.....insert smug face!

Legal Stuff
I've been sent a few items recently to review and mention on my little blog. Its fun for me and obviously there is a benefit for the organisation in advertising, but the legal implications, wow!

Branding Branding Branding

Now I like to think I know a little about this. Not because I working in this area, but just because I am married to Mr Observant who notices when companies use different branding in different places and we both appreciate the need for a consistent corporate message.
But I have to be consistent across how many social media applications....it isnt as easy as you might think

Google Changes

And just when I thought my head couldn't take any more the concept of the Google Penguin update was raised.

Boom my head exploded

But how does this relate to my blog?
This is my little blog about crafting
I'm not looking to give up my banking career (which I like to believe I'm doing quite well at).
I just want to share my crafting and meet like minded people

I guess I've just been put off a little, I know there are many wonderful crafting and other subject bloggers out there, but I'm not sure I will ever be one of those (although I would REALLY love to be), I just don't have the time.

So I will attempt to learn about Penguin and am certainly getting a tad addicted to reading other blogs and learning how to blog better....so I will embrace the changes gradually....the tortoise and the hare and all that

I should probably also share that I'm off to Brit Mums Live on Friday...very excited about meeting like minded people, have a great time, and learning more areas where I need to do better....mmmm

    I've missed your blog this week. Pleased to see you back .

  2. It is daunting isn't it. I've just been getting my head around using Twitter and decided to give Google+ ago and now I'm really confused. I'm trying with my photo editing, but I'm sure it takes me longer than it should. I'm also writing a disclaimer and privacy page, but don't know what I'm meant to do about cookies and I have no idea about Google Penguin.

    Maybe we can support each other with our social endeavors and share tips?


Thanks for stopping by.
I really do appreciate every comment so would be grateful if you let me know your thoughts.
