NAVIGATING SOCIAL MEDIA AFTER 20 YEARS OF DENIAL (#2)

THE BIOGRAPHICAL JOURNEY OF AN ASPIRING MUSICIAN

O.K. Let’s begin with the SAD, SAD, SAD numbers:

  • FACEBOOK FRIENDS: 81    
  • POSTS ON TIMELINE: 7
  • TWITTER FOLLOWERS: 237 as of today
  • VISITORS TO MY WEBSITE: lisnagy.com =ZERO! SAD, SAD, SADAGAIN
  • YOUTUBE CHANNEL SUBSCRIBERS: 4 (ONE OF THOSE WOULD BE ME)

From the numbers displayed above, it is clear to see that I am more than a bit challenged with social media. Hence the reason for starting a blog that chronicles my journey out of seclusion and into the realm of communication with other human beings. According to Dictionary.com

Social Media is defined as:

Websites and other online means of communication that are used by large groups of people to share information and to develop social and professional contacts:

YES! THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I WANT TO DO! About five years ago at the ripe age of 45, I decided to become a singer/songwriter. Actually, I just decided to purchase a guitar—the singer/songwriter part came later. But that’s another story that I will save for a later.

WHAT I HAVE ACCOMPLISHED SO FAR:

image002-1Here I am, five years later, with a newly completed CD titled House of Music gathering dust in the closet, feeling bad that someone wrote an article about ‘unfollowing ‘ those on Twitter who don’t follow back, and wondering how to navigate the world of social media. Sometimes, I feel as though I should have been born during the days of the pioneers. Life was simpler in many ways, but then again, I would dearly miss my Peanut Butter Panda Puffs and Taylor Guitar (not necessarily in that order). Here are some blog goals I have written down to keep myself focused.                                                               

WHAT I HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH OVER THE NEXT 6 MONTHS:

  1. Create a blog to share the everyday challenges and  joys of my musical journey.
  2. Connect with other human beings (100+) about life and music.
  3. Share my songs with the world.
  4. Spotlight individuals on Spotlight Saturday (24).
  5. HAVE FUN!

LOGISTICS:

You can expect one new blog post every Tuesday and Saturday.
