Social Media Moron to Maven – the journey so far, second month check in…

Just about 2 months ago, I began the journey to launch my website, and become a social media sensation, sort of. This month there has been a bit of a mix of old school and new school marketing at play. Which is (becoming) so me. So, here’s where I’m at: I Had an Event! My first Hot Stone Restorative Yoga Event went really well.  I want to thank my participants for opening themselves up to a new experience. And it was really rewarding to see people embracing something fresh and different. I want to thank the social media efforts of the Yougista team and also Jaya Yoga Centre for the old school poster plastering and the new school Facebooking and tweeting to get the word out there!     My Cell Phone makes Voice Memos! One lovely comment I have had from among the many (58 and counting!) viewers that have watched my Detox Flow Yoga Video is that my voice is so soothing and relaxing, they just want to listen to the video to unwind. So, I figured out a way to make voice recordings with the voice memo feature on my blue iPhone 5c. While it is hard to email too big a file, I can manage to deliver a soothing message in 4 minutes or less. Here’s a new one for you: http://www.yougista.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Glass-Staircase-Meditation.m4a     Kevin Nealon and the Hashtag Analogy! While I had done a pretty good job of figuring out how to post pictures on Instagram, the whole hashtag business was a bit confusing. But of course, Doctor Radio (Sirius XM Channel 81) came...

Social Media Moron to Maven – the journey so far, one month check in…

Just about a month ago, I began the journey to launch my website, and become a social media sensation, sort of. So, here’s where I’m at:   Got a new cell phone We are not talking iPhone 6 Plus, or even iPhone 6, but I did get an iPhone 5c (I think the c is because it’s blue) and it does have a pretty good camera, and it’s been pretty easy to navigate Facebook and Instagram from here. More on that later. This was a real upgrade for me, since a month ago I was using a BlackBerry Curve. I know! When I went shopping for this phone, the guys at Virgin Mobile very politely tried not to laugh. Moderately successfully I might add. So how’s life without a BlackBerry keyboard? Interesting and complicated. Just yesterday, I was concentrating so hard to send a quick text message that I didn’t realize someone was at my desk. So embarrassing!  And I’m totally fascinated by the predictive text suggestions. Sometimes I just chose my phone’s suggestions, rather than what I was actually planning to say. I figured they’ve done their homework, they probably know better than I do what the right response is. I’ve become pretty good at taking pictures, although I need a lot more practice. And patience. I’ve been trying to get some pictures of some of the yummy vegan dishes I’ve made, or ordered in restaurants, but I’m usually so hungry, that I just start eating. Oh man, another Instagram opportunity squandered! I guess that means I’m going to have to go back out for Tofu Lettuce Wraps...
