Reaching Out: Why Good Content is not Enough

A thought this morning: “Content is King” is a myth.
From my earliest foray into social media and blogging, I have heard the “Content is king” line and believed it. It makes sense that if you don’t have anything interesting or informative to say, few will pay attention. Now I see that having great content is important, but it’s just one of the keys to the puzzle. I wish that merely posting inspired writing, photographs, quotes and other popular content were the keys to attracting millions of eyeballs to this blog, but alas, this is not so.

Is your "stuff" being seen?

Great content is nothing without REACH. Read more…

Remember Moments that Matter

Will Rogers, the American humorist once said:

“Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”

True, but I have found that sometimes the temptation to just lay down on the tracks is great. I get weary of the turmoil and confusing nature of life.
Maybe you can relate to this scenario of mine:

I’ve had some “good fortune” and a bunch of bad too. Read more…

New Facebook Group Connects Creative Freelancers

It’s a social media “no-no” to post links to your work on other people’s Facebook pages. So I have created a Facebook group with sharing our creative work with others as it’s primary purpose. CLICK HERE:
Freelance Media on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube

Writers, producers, photographers, filmmakers, web designers, graphic artists, musicians, and related careers: You’re invited!

Post links to your work in this group, where freelancers and self employed stick together. I only ask that you don’t post links to the group more than twice a day, so no one is dominating the feed. No political ranting, no silly photos and sayings, just links to your profiles, youtube videos, websites, etc. Professionals only, please. Thanks, Trace ~ The Social Freelancer ™

Focus On What You CAN Do, Not What You CAN’T

I had a horrible dream last night.
Riding in the very back seat of a passenger van on a two lane blacktop highway at night, I looked up to see that I was the only one in the van. No driver, no other passengers and the van was starting to veer off of the road. I struggled to unstrap myself from the seat so that I could somehow climb over all the seats, get behind the wheel and save myself from certain disaster. I woke up sweating. When I told my wife about the dream she pointed out how symbolic it was for my life at this time. Strange, I couldn’t even see the symbolism until she pointed it out to me.

Blog: Why You Shouldn’t Try This Alone

This blog is fun for me. I like to write and I’m interested in expanding scope of my business, so it’s a good fit. But it’s not for everyone. I made a lot of mistakes getting started. I got past a hump, a time when I didn’t have a strong identity for the site. I didn’t have a clue, but I slogged through it. It is a big time commitment and something that I believe you should think through before starting. More about this HERE > Should You Blog? Don’t Be Fooled, It’s a JOB.
