Hello all! Happy 2016!
This may be redundant for those of you who are loyal Followers of this blog – but I just wanted to make everyone aware that I am also on YouTube! Click on the video in this post to be taken to my YouTube channel & hit the big red SUBSCRIBE button!
This announcement comes along with some changes for my blog & a plea for help.
Please keep reading to see what’s going on…
I really enjoy writing/Blogging, however, I consistently receive feedback that people don’t have the time &/or attention span to read my posts, so they don’t Follow at all. I have attempted to write shorter posts to appeal to more Readers, but I feel like I’m not able to say everything I want & can’t give the best information. I briefly considered shutting my blog down as I was…annoyed with this feedback. I have to be true to myself & the content I want to produce, yet at the same time, I have to appeal to Readers or there’s no point. Rather than give up, I have decided to attempt to adapt by utilizing other forms of Social Media & self promotion in an attempt to gain a larger fan base. A larger fan base means more Readers means more feedback, means I can produce more content.
What does this mean for you?
– You’re going to see a lot more of me. It may feel like Spam at first because I’m going to be pushing ALL my posts out on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat, etc. For example, previously I have not promoted my Book or Movie Reviews – that is going to change. Anything that gets put on this blog is going to be fully promoted on all available platforms. #SorryNotSorry
– I will be constantly asking you to please Subscribe/Follow/Share/Comment, etc. I used to avoid harping on that because I felt that it was somewhat obnoxious, but I really want to grow my Fan Base & it’s going to be impossible if y’all don’t get involved & help me create a community.
– I may make everything more personal. I have tried to keep this mostly business professional because I include my blog on my Resume. However, in an attempt to create more content & change things up, I may start including some “Free Writes/Free Thought” posts & videos where I take a quote or song lyrics & write about it, or sit down & talk about life. This will in no way become “adult” or “graphic” as that’s not my nature & I know my family reads/watches my material.
The bottom line: I’m not even asking you to READ/WATCH every single post/video. I understand not all topics will interest you, but any help you can provide in Following/Sharing, would mean so much to me! Thank you for all your support! I look forward to many new Followers, Subscribers, Comments, & Likes here, on my YouTube channel, & on my Social Media! Remember, all links to get in contact with me are listed in the Contact page at the top of the Blog. Please leave me a Comment if you have any thoughts, questions, or concerns about this new era of Miss Al-Leigh!
