Even though my last post was about blogs and my basic lack of exposure to them, I just couldn’t resist a follow-up. I’ve barely scratched the surface but have already learned so much more than I knew a month ago. You just have to jump in and start clicking!
At first I thought, “where have I been???” In reality, though, after talking to a lot of friends in my same demographic, it has become more obvious that my generation is a bit behind in embracing the wonderful world of social media. Probably even way more than a bit in many cases, but nobody is judging. I am here to tell you, though, give it a chance. There is so much great information out there. And if you’re starting a business or trying to promote an existing one, you NEED to be here.
Not gonna lie…it can also get expensive. I have found some fun new websites where I couldn’t resist the urge to make a purchase. I wonder if I could write these off on my taxes. I mean technically, they were made while doing research for my jacket business. Hmmm…
And Instagram! I’ve started following some Chicago-based fashion bloggers (@chicityfashion, @chiwomanmag, @chicagofashioninc) that not only post about fashion but have also introduced me to some fun places, events and resources in the city that I didn’t know about. Not always my demographic but I still learn something. And just following one person subsequently leads me to following three more…all different yet all with great information. Again, where have I been??? I haven’t posted anything on Instagram yet, but I did finally update my profile with some of my interests and a link to this blog. It’s all coming together. A little slow but always steady.
Do you follow any great bloggers…in Chicago or your city? I KNOW there are still so many more out there that I don’t yet know about.
Thanks for reading!
