Being Artificial on Social Media

Transforming your mind state into something for the Internet is rampantly common and has been for a long time. With social media, you get to craft Internet content that reflects who you are as an individual. When you post to Facebook, or to Twitter, or to Youtube or to any other social media platform, you have an opportunity to make artificial something that is real in your life.

Evaluating your everyday life experience, and translating it into Internet content that you make available for others, is part of your life and that of many others. By thinking of creative methods by which you can translate aspects of your life into social media, you have the ability and the freedom to craft Internet content that is representative of real world aspects of your life, yet artificial in the format you render it. Your life is real, as real as you experience it, and with social media, you can tap into real world experiences for something which is suitable for the consumption of others. You communicate moments in your life into social media posts that reflect who you are as an individual.

There is nothing completely real about posting on social media, yet it generally grows out of real life, because you are inherently human. Therefore the urge to render your life on social media means that you grow your content out of experiences you have in real life. It wouldn’t be artificial if it was really happening, yet however interactive social media becomes, you are translating your experiences into content that others can digest and reflect on, to understand who you are as a human being. The WordPress Daily Prompt for today is the word “artificial.” With social media you form content that is grown from your life experience, yet rendered as artificial as far as it is only a representation of what has happened to you in your life, a bloom of the seed of real life.

I hope you that your own social media posts continue to go well for you and that the best moments in your life are conferred to social media as though they were vitally important, which they are. You are an individual and you have the opportunity to write social media content that reflects the best of what happens to you.

Devising Content that Stands Out from the Crowd

It is not without a sense of urgency that we experience many aspects of our lives. The long and the short of the problem is that with so many demands on our time, it is urgent that we get to the belly of the beast and jot those “X’s” onto our to-do lists. When I think of everything in life that demands our attention, and I am not a parent, nor even really a career man, the no. 1 thing I think of in the twenty-first century is the rush to post content on social media.

urgent

Writing content is all about capturing attention. It needs to provoke interest and to continue to do so, at a time when there is constantly all the more competition against which you need to pit yourself. You have what Is really a distinctly finite amount of time available if you are handling the reins of your social media. Therefore it is with some urgency that you need to keep your content coming.

The content you produce is all about establishing yourself as a thought leader in your field. You are, arguably, bringing yourself to market (branding yourself) and that means you need to seem to have a lot of expertise in the matter at hand which you carry out on a daily basis. You need to seem to be the best and brightest of your lot, and that means regularly bringing to the fold what amounts to excellence in social media content. Without a steady series of relevant social media posts, you are not going to seem to be very much of a thought leader at all.

You are almost certainly already on social media if you are interested in blogs on WordPress. It is up to you to handle yours with excellence. I am drawing on the WordPress Daily Prompts for inspiration, and while my blogging work remains merely a hobby, I do want to present a relative amount of truth and dedication to the craft so that I am not merely spinning my wheels. If you want to “like” this post and/or “follow” my blog, by all means, you are welcome to do so. You can leave me a comment as well. Thanks for reading, and good luck with your content!

Action is Essential if you Want Your Aims

A very important realization to have is that time waits for no man. (That’s Chaucer).

I don’t need to tell you twice. You have a finite number of years left in your life, so make the most of them. I am reasonably confident that if you are reading this, you already are. My WordPress strategy is currently to draw inspiration from the WordPress Daily Prompts, and if you understand that I am a blogger doing this for personal reasons, then you are my kind of reader.

I feel I am as capable as I can be with this kind of hobby underway: it must be clear, it must be readable, and it must give me an opportunity to reach fellow bloggers so that I know who might be thinking along the same lines as myself.

I implore you to act. You don’t have an endless supply of the day known as tomorrow, and you should be exploring your own identity with the aim to be both effective and distinct. The aim of bringing it to the digital page should be providing you with both momentum and motivation. It comes but once, and you should have the benefit of some kind of calendar schedule that reminds you when to act, and how.

I want to be known to those with similar paths in life to my own. It is not glory that I want, or riches, but only to gain skill at a craft.  I want to see the world with the eyes of one who has learned something he desired to know. That is all I can do now, but I will be learning each and every day, a pursuit of knowledge.

If you are seeing this, perhaps your own goals are in full swing. You are in charge of your own fate, and what brings you here is sympathy for another, one apart from yourself. You never know when a spark will ignite, and however you have found your way to this tidy page outside yourself, feel free to enjoy as you see fit and to do as one does with a blogger: you “like” and you “follow.”
