I’m not sure if many of you reading this, know me other than the writer behind The Social Exchange, or the chick who writes a bunch of posts on business, social media and leadership? If anyone doesn’t know me at all and interested in finding out more about how it changed my life; you can read that here, on The Good Web Guide website.
Tonight’s post came out of a desire to find a place where I could talk about the above-mentioned areas, which I am passionate about, and The Social Exchange was a place where I could do that away from previous blogs where I have shared other kinds of posts (also motivational) – it seems I am challenged to write anything outside of motivational; when it comes to writing for myself. However, today I have been inspired and encouraged to write this post, just because I can.
Sometimes structure is good, and writing formal posts that address business is great, but there are also times where we can get stuck and in a rut and that my friend is why I am waffling on, in this post, to help myself more than anyone, break out.
Life is multifaceted, and I am too. I want to write about fashion, and baking, and books, and fiction and heck I want to write about anything I want. Ideally I want to write about it and engage with some other folks on the subject of choice, hence why I called it the ‘social’ exchange.
So what’s stopping me?
That is the million dollar question.
This battle to be structured and stay on point is a tiresome battle at times. Maybe a girl just wants to have a little fun once a while and post pictures of cool things:
No not a ring. 😛 Just the box! Like cake in a jar, who doesn’t like good surprises? Or going to exotic places?
Do you want to know the cool thing about all this venting in this way? This is exactly what many businesses need to do, open up! Shed a little humour, colour; show a splash of personality for crying out loud! Let’s have a little fun, like innocent, or a send a greeting card with moo. The most amazing thing about creating a space to do that – whether it be Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or a blog – is can express who we are as a team, as a company, as a individual for not other alternative reason that just because we can.
This is The SOCIAL Exchange, right?
Well I just exchanged something, how about you do too!
