When thinking about what I wanted to make this blog about, I knew It would have to be something I was interested in and also something that I knew a lot about. I really had no trouble talking about working out and other things related to it because it’s something I’m truly interested in.
I would say the most effective tool was Twitter. It’s so easy to reach out to millions of people on Twitter with just the use of a hashtag and I really saw that firsthand when I started promoting my posts on Twitter and used hashtags that pertained to them. My tweets would get likes from people who weren’t following me and sometimes people would even respond to my tweets and it was all because of the hashtags.
Something I would want to improve on the site is the overall look of it. My layout didn’t seem to fit my blog well and I had a hard time trying to figure out how to customize it and that’s probably something I could have tried harder on in order to get it done but I didn’t.
My major is Public Relations and I want to try to do something that involves social media with that degree. I love how you can reach so many people with just the use of a simple hashtag or sharing the same interests as someone. Social media is growing every day and becoming more popular and it’s a huge staple in some peoples day to day life. By promoting my tweets on Twitter, I learned just how simple it was to reach out to an audience with similar interests and I think that can definitely help me in the future if I do land the job I want.
My most popular week was surprisingly this past week. I had 11 views and 6 visitors on my site. For my most popular post, it was actually my 2nd to last post that had my photo slideshow in it. I’m really not sure as to why that one was the most popular. The only reason I can come up with is that more people on my Twitter timeline were starting to see and be interested in what I was posting and decided to finally take a look. What was most surprising to me was that no one clicked on any of my links in my posts at all. I thought that was kind of weird but I also understand because I don’t ever click on a link to something else when I’m reading something online.
