As the season’s change, I am reminded that a little shakeup can be a good thing sometimes. It can be boring to look at the same old thing day in and day out. Mother Nature knows that. She dazzles us with beautiful fall displays of crimson, gold, burnt orange and more this time of year. We cannot have growth without a little change on occasion. No matter how much angst it might bring me, I too need to go through a little change every once in a while.
My inspiration started by finally ripping down a border in my bedroom, but I realized that the change I needed was more than that. Aesthetic changes need to happen in more than the colour of our homes (although I am still working on that one too). We need to keep up with the times and reflect that in our social media sites as well. Have you read your “About Me” section on your blog in a while? Perhaps it needs a refresh. When was the last time you updated your Twitter profile? Maybe a new picture would remind people that a real person exists behind the image. Don’t forget that while Facebook is all about the updates, we often overlook our own descriptions there too. Setting up an account is only half the battle of social media. We need to keep fresh and current in the ever-changing world of the web, and that means reflecting on where we came from in the beginning. If you haven’t inspected your LinkedIn page in a while, now is the time to do it.
Embrace the season of change in your (social Media) life today!
