I’m asking you how you stay connected and you may say, “To what?” Good question. Connections come in all forms. Social media has changed the way we connect. This blog is a prime example.
Who ever heard of analytics? I suppose if you have a background in engineering it may be a familiar word.
In my world of Google Analytics, I’m shocked to see who reads this blog. Here are the countries where people read what I wrote this week: Brazil, India, Italy, France, Spain, Russia, Japan, China and those called “not set.” In the past, I’ve had followers from far reaches of the world such as Vietnam, Netherlands, and South Korea to Bangladesh and that’s just a small sampling.
When I think about my “Marsha World” I’ve come to realize that with a click of a button, we are connected. It’s just that simple. Whether you are a regular or irregular Facebook user, follower, or circulating like a helicopter, we can reach out and communicate.
Twitter, isn’t that the perfect description of a quick tweet? As a self proclaimed bird fancier, twitter just identifies another way to connect. Now, the dilemma for me, The Queen of Talking, how do I convey my thoughts in 140 characters including a photo?
Let’s not forget Instagram, a quick way to connect through photography!
In 2016, I’m hoping to increase my visibility in connecting with others. It’s a human need, in my opinion, to connect. I understand the difference between public and private. Between introverted and extroverted; between wanting to share and wishing no one would notice you.
When I grab my camera and head outdoors, it is yet another way for me to connect. I’ve really embraced this creative side of myself. Sometimes my camera sees things I didn’t even realize until I look at the photo! I wanted to capture this wall art as I was stopped at a signal. I rolled down my window and snapped this photo. Stop and smell the coffee!
Then of course there’s the radio show. This is the ultimate connection for me.
Born To Talk truly describes me.
When I add my tag line of Conversations + Connections = Community, it’s easy to understand the formula of how I live my life.
Do I have a brand?
You might wonder, what exactly is this tree all about and how does it relate to me? Let me explain. I love the look and feel of all trees in all seasons; from the spring to fall and everything in between. Green is one of my favorite colors, and then as you look closely you will see the birds and the squirrel.
Do I communicate it well? Am I connected?
Who is my community?
I say, let’s stay connected. Let me hear from you. Tell me what you’ve enjoyed about these blogs for the past couple of years. I would welcome your feedback.
My travelling has been remarkably reduced since I started the show, but that may change in 2016. I see the possibility of Costa Rica in my near future and the east coast of our beautiful country this fall. AND, I have not ruled out taking an African Safari. I’ll have more to say about that next week!
I’ll do my best to keep our connections wide open. Thanks for being a part of my greater community!
