So… the Canadian Prime Minister thinks he’s Axl Rose & I got Vine

Yeah that’s Stephen Harper rocking Sweet Child Of Mine but hey it’s Christmas and I can’t do any better so rock on!

Oh Guns N’ Roses… once a proud band that defined rebellion and anarchy, now covered by Sheryl Crow and leader of the Canadian Conservative Party.

L.O.L.

Vlog. Podcast. Tweet. Repeat

There is this delusion that many people fall prey to myself included. It’s the idea that I can or need to be on every different social media platform. As it stands I have the basics (Facebook,  Twitter and instagram) however I also have Snapchat, Vine, Podomatic, WordPress, Tumblr, Youtube, Reddit, LinkedIn and a defunct MySpace.

I’m middle of the road when it comes to social media platforms.  I also feel like one of the biggest lessons I’ve learned in the past year is that quality trumps quantity… as long as it’s current.

This is where (god help me) I’m greatful for the lesson of running an uptempo offense that BCIT taught me.

Focus on your project but once your done move on to the next one. That’s the life lesson from the newsroom.

So many times I’ll get caught up with the promotion of a piece that I’ve worked on… thinking I will now have a chance to relax.

One of the most smug and disheartening things I can do is click the refresh button to watch the number of views…

That’s not to say I’m not interested in analytics.  However there’s a difference between promoting a product and living in the past. Becoming stagnant, and watching as the world passes you by.

I find this to be most true with Facebook.  There’s no worse feeling when it comes to promoting a project than the realization my friend’s I phone video of her cat has triple the number of likes my project which took days to complete.

Move on. learn. Get better. Different goals. It took me a long time to figure that out but at the end of the day it’s not a competition.  Focus on your craft. Promotion will come with time… but seriously 127 likes on a cat video @$$^^@!!
