Less than a decade ago, the Internet started booming with social media. Trends, likes, hashtags, retweets all brings the cyber community together at lighting speed! Interestingly enough the bloggers got creative and some even became extremely successful. OneExtraPixel gives a list of 10 entrepreneurs that used WordPress as a launch pad for makin’ the big bucks. Anything from discount codes to how to invest in stocks has made these young people rich.
Ingenuity and specificity of your blog makes you an attractive blogger. In my social media couse, I’ve quickly learned the complexity of blogging. It’s not so much a challenge. It just allows you to take so many different avenues for your blog. The theme, layout, colors, font (typeface 😉 ) and various media input options give you so many combination options. It’s every creative person’s dream on a screen!
Besides creativity, it’s great for the organized people out there. Cyberspace might have an overload of information, but the one thing that helps us different users are the trends. The ability to search for exactly what you want AND when you want the information. Info at your fingertips. AND it’s typically free! Doesn’t get much better than that. . . especially for college folks like me.
Some of the trends I find myself following are fitness, jazz music, and the latest fashion loves. I find that these typically have cool, inspiring quotes. Whether they be lyrics to a song sung by the flawless Ella Fitzgerald, the quotes of the top designers, or photo inspirations with great workout tips on Instagram…I’m down with whatever can make my day better!

So basically this week has been learning all these details about blogging and figuring out where I’m gonna take this blog this semester. I’ve decided I’m gonna try to make these posts interesting by using the topics I learn each week and mixing in a personal flare to the posts. How does ‘My life as a Public Relations Student’ sound to you? Too broad or specific enough? Not quite sure yet. Just gonna roll with it for now and see where this next week takes me. Hopefully something more specific will come to me so I can stand out against all these creative people…especially the talented peeps in my class.
Be prepared cyber world people… awesome blogs coming your way for SEU students! You’ve been warned 😉
