Yesterday, I was having a conversation and a topic came up, namely Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher’s marriage. In my musings, I later recalled thinking that I don’t know this woman or this man. Why do I care about their personal life? I wouldn’t normally care about a stranger’s marital problems. Why are the details of these people, whom I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting, so important that I am engaging in an entire conversation based on their life. That is essentially the question that we all should be asking. These people allegedly had something bad happen to them and now they are media fodder.
Do not underestimate the importance of social media. An argument can be made that this is more important than a website. Writers and musicians are among the most supportive people out there. It has been my personal experience that other writers and musicians will share my posts and articles, therefore getting the word out, way more than friends and family will. Not that friends and family don’t care, they are just not a passionate about our work as we are. Be engaged in the writing community. Regular posts on Facebook, My Twitter, LinkedIn, Google, etc. will keep you and your work visible. Be sure to include links to where the eBook may be purchased. This takes time but time well spent.
I gave my husband a steamy kiss this morning (instead of a peck on the cheek) because I was feeling pretty confident about myself. I think I shocked him, but I know he liked it.
Do you compare your stats with those of other users? If so, do the numbers induce feelings of jealousy, discontent, or superiority? Do these feelings subside after you’ve left the site, or do they color your offline world?
After you have explored your feelings for the day on page one, turn to the next page of your journal. Date it and draw a line down the center of the page like you did the page before. This time the labels should read ‘MY RESPONSIBILIY’ and ‘SOLUTIONS’.
The best thing to do is setup a landing page with a simple opt-in box and give something away for free. This will bring them in and onto your list without asking them to commit to something bigger. Then, setup autoresponders that will go out automatically to the people who opt-in to upsell them on other offerings as time goes on.
Riggleman getting it right: Jim Riggleman, it seems, has finally gotten a hold on his lineup. Jayson Werth has settled nicely into the third spot, and the Danny Espinosa/Rick Ankiel 1-2 combo is probably the best the Nats can do there (although Riggs should monitor the young Espinosa, who is just 2 for his last 22, and make sure the pressure of leading off does not weigh him down).
So that is another way of how to search for people on DailyBooth. Just follow the daily updates and you will be able to pick people up from there. There is also a blog for DailyBooth users. You can also check out the people that take part in this blog and you might come across some people that you might be interested in following. It remains to be seen whether people are willing to snap a picture and upload it every day.
