I hate to start the week with a rant, but I'm mad at social media sites for giving me too much to do. Yeah, I know, I could ask my V.A. to do some things for me, but that would require me actually knowing which specific things to tell him to do.
Grrrr…I'm just so frustrated with all this social networking stuff going on. Don't you hate the feeling of having 4 or 5 growling pit bulls in the closet, just waiting to be fed?
It's not like I don't appreciate Twitter. After all, complete strangers re-tweet what I have to say and are a major source of traffic to this blog. I got a $600 order from someone who found me through a re-tweet. So I know it's working and it pays.
It's that gnawing feeling that I'm not doing enough. Going over to Facebook sends pangs of guilt because I haven't answered friend requests in weeks. And I love friends, honest.
My stepmother told me to be careful what I wish for, but here goes:
I just wish the magic social media fairies would appear, give me a list of things I'm doing right, things I'm doing wrong, and give me some clear cut steps for getting the most out of social media.
(…sound effects of roaring thunder, grumbling skies, lightening and the clouds opening up…)
POOF! OMG, there's this social media fairy right here in my office, and now there's two of them… and they tell me they'll give me exactly what I ask for: social media solutions.
Wow, this blogging stuff really works! Oh how odd… one of these fairies looks just like Joan Stewart, aka The Publicity Hound. The other looks just like Jeanne Hurlbert, Ph.D., social media and survey expert.
Ouch, hey, that hurts! They've hit me across the patoutie with their magic wand and tell me "More will be revealed…"
And quicker than I could say "SocialMediaSolutions" they are gone, but they left behind this note…
"You're invited to a social media solutions teleseminar this Thursday, December 17, 2009, at 4 p.m. ET"

Come on, it'll be fun, we can really grill the fairies and get those hungry pit bulls over on Facebook and Twitter fed so they'll stop growling…
