LAURA MORRISSEY COUNSELLING·WEDNESDAY, 23 JANUARY 2019
I have been cataloguing my process of becoming acquainted with Social media, I wrote ” Too Old to Blog?” previously , as I have seriously questioned what I am doing! I went on fb for Business course last year and realised how much I have to learn. My friend from school, Jeanette @ Communication River, has been keeping me company! We enlisted the help of Meg @ Clockwork PA for a couple of 2 hour sessions at my home, to help us with rolling out our platforms or actually starting them!
My head hurt afterwards and I have been very busy writing blogs in my head instead of sleeping! but that is another blog! Yesterday, I spent all day minus a brief walk with my dogs in the park, playing on my phone. Something that I am constantly telling my teenaged children not to do.
I excused myself because I see it as preparing the essentials to make my life easier in the future! I have been researching # and thought leaders, ensuring that they pop up on my feeds. Who knew, actually I am sure many to you do know, that everyday of the week has it’s own #!! I have only just found the # only keyboard! I also did not know that I should @ people in my missives..
My home video looked nothing like this!!!
I am trying new things, videos being one such venture. I did a live stream or 2 on Instagram and had a man offering to give me advice on my production..missing the point I feel that I am not seeking critiques, I am just amazed that I can video and download the things! I will over the next few weeks work on presentation. My good friend has said that I need to be more me, show more humour and I do look a bit wooden! It is tricky trying to talk about serious issues with humour, indeed I find it hard to talk and smile. My gaze is off centre and what on earth do I do with my hands..??
