I missed doing my March 2017 recap. To be honest, it feels so long ago now that I can’t even remember the stuff I wrote about. My revisiting the posts now will take me back, definitely. From what I know, I was really hyped up for the then-upcoming A to Z Challenge. I hardly really checked out Facebook even.
Here’s a recap of my March 2017:
(1) Hash potatoes!!!
#TuesdayTunes (see Wishes and Songs Part 1)
#AskWednesday (see “As writers, have you ever had ideas only to find out later that others beat you to them? What were they?”)
#WhatsupWednesday (see The Guy Google)
#FeatureFriday (see The BRF and New Society with its New Technologies)
#AnythingDay (see JAMIE PART 4: DEAR JAMIE, The A-to-Z Challenge theme Reveal 2017 and JAMIE PART 5: JAMIE AND THE GOSSIP BOYS) – Any day could be about anything.
Judging from my results, I was semi-active, which was better than hardly active or, worse, inactive. I was gearing up for April anyway.
(3) My Trending Stories. I still put it off because of certain hindrances, but I decided to finally restart it sometime in May (which is NOW).
(4) A to Z Challenge. Wait till I’m done.
Social Media Reach-out:
I’m getting followers slowly but steadily, at least. I don’t really expect to get many, I’m just surprised there are those who decide to FOLLOW me on Facebook (even Twitter, which still confuses me at times) when they don’t really know me personally. It’s so nice to get followers who think that what I post are interesting enough.
A few months back, I started sending thank-you messages to FB followers. Unfortunately, it could be so time-consuming that I had to stop. What I normally do when I have the time is to visit bloggers who decide to follow my blog. I get email notifications everytime, so I just filter to see followers and go from there.
I’ve been somehow more active than I’ve ever been on Twitter (just a tad more). And, oh, I should give special shout-outs to both Annette (@YouAreTheExpert) and Debbie (@DebbieDogLady). Whenever I post anything here, it gets posted on their Twitter pages. That’s free promotion for me through RSS Feed-ing. Thank you, ladies 🙂
Fiction/Story- and Poetry-writing:
Restarted being a bit more active. See, I posted two Jamie Tales shorts (see #AnythingDay).
No book-reading happened whatsoever. I am so ashamed.
- I have become a Wish 107.5 FM fanatic, ergo, my #TuesdayTunes post. It honestly helped me overcome a sort of tough time then. Music is great therapy.
- I have become an active Quora adviser, but I am very curious why 98% of questions I am asked has to do with handling relationships. I suddenly feel like a relationship guru. But I suppose, the key is to put myself in their shoes.
- I declared self-imposed hiatus on Facebook and was away for more than two weeks, I think. It was due to a mix of avoiding things/people that make me feel a bit depressed and trying to write more.
Your thoughts? 😉
