This is my achievement stats for oct. Since blogging became my main job, this would be my measure. No new post leads to decline. When more posting are up, we see little bits of hope.
All social marketer like to measure their web result, give them a sense of who is the audience and what would be the engagement rate and so on. I just hope I am not rambling alone.
I wasn't born as a writer but here I am, writing and managing a website cum blog. Hosting a website is a simple thing to do- you just have a website and well, the content survive on its own.
Writing and updating website certainly takes a bit more efforts and I want my article to flow out of my genuine thought, it takes much of the writing and erasing repeatedly. Capturing audience attention is the most difficult part. My writing evolve overtime and I hope it just got better.
I wasn't into writing until when I worked in marketing and knew how writing aids the flow of ideas and retain originality. I can share with others even though my writing is a passive one. Writing is about the thoughtfulness and concern of the audience. Delivery of message. It is an attention seeking task- if I couldn't grab your attention, then I am doing a poor job.
Really, what is a wish of a writer? He/ she wants to know how is she doing in terms of writing not just noting that it is a good or bad website.
My happiness came from realization of hope. Whether it is meeting someone I have not seen for a long period of time, blessing from friends and family, a career, learning or passing an exams, being supported, it is a realization of hope.
Hope is a wish that we like to see came true. Little hope sparks happiness. A really hungry person would be happy to eat anything on the table. If you ask a person who craves for Korean food to have Chinese food, would you make the person happy?
Happiness is a result of realization of hope. I hope and hope ..... Wish you all the best in realizing the little hope in you and makes happiness sparks for everyone.
The most memorable terms in economics is opportunity cost. What is the cost to give up an opportunity in order to get what you think it is best for you?
I like how economist measure these in monetary value- It gives us some physical identification of how much it really cost us. Choices are probably the hardest thing that we can be assured if we made a right economic trade-0ff. We cannot do everything we want in life. That is why we chose the best and leave the rest as opportunity cost.
I trade my time to write and it is an opportunity cost for not studying what I need to. The question would be is the opportunity cost
Social media management looks awesome. I got a website, facebook, twitter and LinkedIn and I managed them on my own.
I guess the only thing I am lacking is managing a real product/service social media. Then, I can really set objectives and interact with consumers.
I am talking alone on my blog here without any interaction. Need more interaction/discussion but it is not going to come in an easy way.
Sometimes, when you are alone, you just can't help to think if you are good enough. Am I good enough to do this? I good enough with my task? Am I missing something?
It bring doubts to life and this doubt influence how we think and our future. There are many advise over this doubt and really, which one should I believe?
Don't think about others' opinion and live in my own world OR care about others' opinion and live in their world. Everyone had their own measure for life. Are we living up to our standard?
Life- is defining how we go through everyday life. We adore what we don't get -that is just simply the case. Picture on facebook of where we couldn't be or enjoy makes life bitter. It is because picture creates desire and evaluation of what is important in our life.
Bringing dream into life is what we struggle to achieve. The image of the perfect situation we imagine could be so far away. And when every step ahead is so vicious and threatening, most of us take a step back. I can't say I am stepping at the right step or towards the dangerous zone- not-to-be-crossed; no one knows but this is what I need to try.
I worked hard throughout my life -every single thing I have right now is an equation of hardwork and blessing from my connection with mere luck. I am still working hard to learn what I need to and to understand how the world of food works. In defining who I am and what I does, I paid effort that I never knew where it came from. Perhaps, it is the love for what food brought us and continues to bring us.
It is Thanksgiving tomorrow and I am glad I am around to celebrate this day for I felt blessed to be surrounded with abundance of food.
