So, What’s Next? 

Good Evening Good People! I hope that you are doing well and that you had a blast this weekend. This weekend has been very busy for me because I have been busy promoting my Facebook page. The love my page has been shown is unreal and I’m so grateful and thankful to everyone who stopped by to show my page some love. I’m completely blown away!

With that being said, likes and follows however are not enough for me. I want interactions and engagements on my page which is what I’m focusing on next. Don’t get me wrong, I do want people to like and follow my page, but at the end of the day, I have come to learn that it’s not the amount of likes and follows you have. What really matters is the number of people whose lives you have touched and inspired.

Have you checked out my new Facebook page? Click here if you haven’t. I’m looking to start some great conversations so come join the fun. I’m sure I can get the ball rolling soon enough! I’m willing to put in the effort!

Until next time… 

For The Indies 

Indies have it hard. Seriously we do. At least in the beginning. For the most part, all you really have is yourself and I’m here to tell you that’s OK. Getting yourself out there can be a daunting task, but I’m here to tell you it can be done!

When I first started my blog two years ago, for a whole year I didn’t have any followers or subscribers. Sad, but true. Even still, I kept on writing because I knew my writing style would eventually find a crowd. Thankfully, things are much different now. Just to put things into perspective, Friday evening I published my Facebook page. Since then I have had 2k likes and follows for my Facebook page! Whattttttttt! How? I will tell you below.
 

I have been working hard networking and connecting with other writers, bloggers and most importantly, readers! Over the past month and a half, I have been painstakingly reaching out and inviting such ones to sign up and follow my Facebook page once it is published. I expected less than half would like and follow, but I was wrong.

Let me leave you with this…

YOU are your greatest asset, period. When you believe in yourself, there is nothing no one can say or do to stop you. YOU are your greatest secret weapon. Remember that. Let your rejections humble you and let your setbacks motivate you. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and don’t be afraid to go after what you want. In a few days, I will be doing a Facebook ad campaign to reach many more readers and if you are a book worm yourself, I hope to connect with you too.

Until next time… 

Social Media and Self Image

The media, specifically social media has distorted the minds of many individuals regarding beauty and self image. It has single-handedly caused millions of women and men to find unsubstantiated flaws within themselves and others. Due to the media’s idealistic views regarding beauty and body image, millions of women and men all across the world struggle with identity issues each and every day. Even worse, millions of adolescent girls and boys struggle with self esteem issues due to the countless unrealistic ads that are thrust in their face on a daily basis. The majority of these ads (whether they are on television or in print form) include individuals who are heavily photo shopped or laced in makeup. If you ask me, that is a far cry from being real or authentic. Still, many fail to see that basic truth and they would rather base their thoughts and views on what the media deems as beautiful or acceptable.

As a society, we put too much stock into what the media considers as beautiful and which body types it hails as acceptable. Why do you think so many people including celebrities are rushing to get themselves filled with silicone, plastic or to have their face and bodies tucked and/or stretched? It is because they too are victims of the media and its mentality of what is beautiful and acceptable. The MEDIA KINGS know that society as a whole is very insecure and they know that society as a whole can easily be manipulated by the things they see.  One thing is for sure, the plastic surgeons are not complaining.

Instead of trying to look like this person or act like the next person, why not accept yourself for who you are? Do not allow yourself to be warped by social media and its false standards of beauty and acceptance. You will never be happy if you do. Whether you are short or tall, big or small, find beauty within yourself and accept the person that YOU are. Beauty is not defined by one’s race, bone structure or body type. Beauty is defined by individuality and confidence and when you have that, no one not even the power of social media can come close to touching you.
