Dealing With Haters and Trolls? | SocialMediaExaminer.com

Have you ever been publicly criticized or mocked for something that you did?  Are you wondering how you can deal with this type of negativity when it happens on social media?  To learn about haters and how to deal with them, I interview Marcus Sheridan for this episode of the Social Media. ...










Sharing a link to an article received via eMail. It's worth resharing and worth repeating. Sound advice, but the fact is, in my world, haters and trolls are 99.9% of the time met by me with SILENCE. I'm sorry but there's really no extra time to entertain them! There's barely enough time to delete their useless pointless remarks. It's annoying to have to spend time doing that when there is productive and profitable work to be done.  


Excuse me?  What was that?  Oh I see.  You don't want to practice professional respect and courtesy, or plain old good manners, but you want to be treated like a serious professional or genuine intellectual. Uh huh.  Whatever!  Talk to the hand.

  • The letter "H" in my book is for Happy not Hater.
  • The letter "T" is not for Trolls; it represents my time which is much to precious and valuable to waste on U!!  Bye bye!

Common Thinking Mistakes We All Make - BufferApp.com (Reblog)

Each day is a brand new day and I am always thinking of ways to enhance or improve my creative thought process. 
 

Ever heard of Buffer? This business provides a service that helps you automate your social media sharing. The organization currently enjoys a good online reputation and is as respected as their competitors - HootSuite.com, SproutSocial.com and similar sites.

Not only do they provide an excellent service, but they publish a very informative blog. Very excited to share this tidbit. See REFERENCE below. 

 

Had not realized there are common thinking mistakes most of us make every day? Well … maybe everybody else makes those mistakes. I don't!
 



Mistakes 1 through 5?

  • Not me. No way!

Mistake 6?


Mistake 7?

  • OK. I was wrong about who the original artist was that sang the song! Really thought it was Petula Clark!! That's how I remembered it!

Mistake 8 ? Fine! I admit it!!

How to Make Money from Virily and 6 More Revenue Sharing Sites (Reblog)

Janice Wald is an award-winning blogger and her areas of expertise are blogging and social media. I follow her blog and I follow her on social media. She is very active on social media and all around the web, and when I see her name, I have to peek! She's simply irresistible. ☺

Her blog, mostlyblogging.com, is loaded with guidance, advice, tips, and tricks, etc.  Everything you need for successful blogging. While perusing the Quora Q&A website, I came across her response to a question - "Do You Blog Outside Quora?" - and that led me to the blog post below. (Treasure hunting is always good when you actually find treasure!)  

I was very interested in reading her review of Virily.com, as I joined this blogging community in June 2017.  It's 2018.  I'm still there.  But I was just wondering if she knew something about the site that I didn't know!  So many sites like Virily have come and gone in the blink of an eye!

Happy to say that her blog post was very encouraging.  Sharing the link to her post and for what it's worth, my additional "two cents" (below the post link).  I think this site is a wonderful social blogging community and I would recommend it to anyone, but especially to newbie bloggers.  If you're thinking of becoming a blogger and you need to start somewhere to gain experience, start with VirilySign up is FREE!







My “Two Cents” About Virily (and the other writing sites):

I am currently a very satisfied blogger in the Virily community. Member since June 2017. I was very hesitant to join. Got talked into joining so many communities just like Virily, only to be disappointed. But Virily has been a pleasant surprise. 

But now I'm like: “Uummm? Should I stay or should I go?” (O.o) LOL. I've been psychologically conditioned by the other sites to expect the site to disappear! But you know what? Right now. It's kind of fun! And it is proving to be profitable.

I think sites built using the revenue-sharing business model, i.e. that primarily rely on ad revenues to stay afloat, can survive. Two things are needed. Honest staff and loyal members. Both are absolutely necessary. Sad to say but my experience with other sites has been that the staff or management was not straight up! The members certainly didn't want the site to shut down!  That was evident!  

By contrast, I have found the Virily site owners, staff and management, to be very involved with the daily administration of the site; they respond to their messages promptly; they keep members apprised of significant changes, and they're based in Estonia. ☺  I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but if the folks from Estonia are as nice as these people, that country is now on my Travel and Vaction bucket list. ☺ 

Regards the other sites mentioned, in addition to Virly?

  • Hubpages was recently acquired and is under new management. My HUBs are articles that are evergreen content and though the earning is slow, I do get paid
  • Tried InfoBarrel and Snipsly. Had no success. Do not make your decision based on my experience.
  • Started with Daily Two Cents when they started and have experienced the changes with this platform. I would recommend joining, although some of my friends did not like it. To each his own.  My experience has been good. 
  • Seekyt was great but when the site changed owners, I deleted my content and left. Wish them success though.  The site looks lovely.

Virily's publishing module is not just for blogging.  You can create quizzes, polls, lists; shared embedded content and videos, as well as write.  It is a very lively social community.  It's like Facebook, only you can earn extra income for most of your social activity.  Just check their FAQ for details.  Below are links to some of my posts, supplied as examples to give you an idea of content that is considered acceptable.

It's 2018! Tumblr is Still Here!

Despite the fact that Tumblr changed owners more than once and loyal users panicked each time. Despite the fact that David Karp, the creator of Tumblr, left the company at the end of 2017. It's 2018, a brand new year and Tumblr is still here and so far still true to its original mission, that is to be "a place to express yourself, discover yourself, and bond over the stuff you love. It's where your interests connect you with your people." Whew! That was some sweating huh?


Tumblr remains an excellent #blogging, #microblogging and #socialmedia platform. It's very flexible and has many features to make blogging and social sharing easy. It's free to create an account. Use it for #socialnetworking #professionalnetoworking #affiliatemarketing #blogging #microblogging #articlewriting #freelancewriting #workathome #homebusiness #business and as a complement to your blogs on Blogspot or other blogging platforms.




My primary Tumblr is “FoxNet2017



Find a wide range of general info: from #Art to Work at Home Tips ( #tipsandtricks #businessadvice #newbies #newbiebloggers ) to #SocietyandCulture (almost everything except porn and scary stuff like zombies. LOL.)

18 Marketing Trends to Watch in 2018 | Entrepreneur.com (Reblog)

I am always desperately seeking ways and means to hone my Internet, affiliate and content marketing skills. I try all the tools and resources offered (as long as they are free with an option to upgrade later). I sift through all the advice, tips and tricks from the “experts”. One thing that I have noticed and it's a story that has not changed over the years (Eh!  for about 4 or 5 years). 

It's a prediction about the future of Twitter.

Extracted this quote from an article by Entrepreneur.com titled "18 Marketing Trends to Watch in 2018".
11. Twitter dies a quiet death.
Twitter has been unable to grow users in 2017. The platform has focused on user acquisition rather than on making improvements to their ad platform. As a result, marketers are already using other social media platforms to connect with prospects. This trend will continue in 2018 as Twitter continues to struggle.

I don't know about other Twitter users but this saddens me. Nevertheless, I keep trying to prepare myself for the "Moment" when I will no longer be able to save or view any more Moments.  If this prediction is true, all I can say is:  
"Dear Twitter,
I am glad that I won't be a student attending university pursuing a business or marketing degree, because your organization will likely be a case study.
You will be remembered affectionately by me."

Gifts for Tree Lovers : Give the Blessing of a Tree

Updated My Twitter Profile (@goshoppingbees)

After listening/reading to all the doom and gloom business reports about Twitter not being likely to survive and maintain its place among the social media giants, I decided to ignore them. Just updated my Twitter profile for one of my niche Twitter accounts. It's for shoppers, shopaholics, wish listers, and such like.

Bollywood (Hindi/Indian) Entertainment – Google+ Community

Well!  It was fun while it lasted!  Update Sep 2017.  The Bollywood (Hindi/Indian) Music – Google+ Community no longer exists. No biggie! Joined another community and it is Everything Bollywood! Not just the music. I'm OK with that.

Bollywood : Your ultimate destination for Bollywood Entertainment.

Hurray for Bollywood!!

There is this wonderful community on Google Plus called “Bollywood (Hindi/Indian) Music” and members are asked to share Hindi/Indian music they like or love. 

Well so far two videos were submitted by me, but even though the Moderator accepted one of my posts, the music was actually American songs that had been performed by famous Bollywood stars. One by Shahrukh Khan, a timeless classic “Stand By Me” (accepted by the Moderator); and the other by Priyanka Chopra, a modern collaborative crossover effort with hip hop all-star Will I. Am, lead singer for the group Black Eyed Peas (rejected by the Moderator - No biggie!  It's cool!).

- plus.google.com/communities/109475555187175670421

The truth is there were so many songs and so much music from Indian films that I've enjoyed it was difficult to choose. The video below is a clip from a movie - “Yuvvraaj” - about 3 brothers; two of them fighting over an inheritance that was left to their brother who is extremely gifted but unable to care for himself. The stars are Salman Kahn, Katrina Kaif, Anil Kapoor. All of the music for this film is incredible! This performance by Anil Kapoor is unbelievable!!

Even though this music is not a throwback for me, it's going in my throwback collection anyway.

It's true music is universal, but … Hurray for Bollywood! :)

Blogging Tips: Refresh Your Old Content

Revisiting your old blog posts is always a good idea, if for no other reason than to fix the broken links. But with the constantly evolving and ever-changing online landscape, the content or information may need to be updated. Particularly if you published reviews and/or recommendations. If you have been blogging for a while then you know this is a must-do task. If you're a newbie blogger, you will bookmark this tip for future reference. 




Occasionally, an update is totally pointless. You need to delete the post or the article and just get rid of it! If you're an online entrepreneur, this is a project you should do in your “down time”, i.e. after you've taken care of your priority tasks: banging out blog posts (or articles), responding to comments, social media sharing and other blog promotion activities, etc. Perhaps set aside a few hours each week or every other week to revisit and review old blog posts.


If you have affiliate marketing websites or blogs, sometimes vendors you are approved for discontinue their program. You don't always get the memo or the eMail. You should test your referral links at your site to make sure they lead the visitor to correct landing page. Often my click testing indicated the link is inactive which is not only upsetting because there was no notification as to “when” that happened, but it also makes you wonder how many other people also clicked it, got the error message, and then left your site never to return. (My thoughts or worries.)


There are supposedly free tools that can help you with this effort, i.e. help you find broken links. They are available but I have yet to use one successfully. However, others have. So don't let my lack of skills hinder you.


It's your work and if it's perfectly good work, don't let it go to waste. This blogging tip can not be stressed enough. If you serious about your blogging, then make time to refresh or update your old content. Content that dates back several years may still be critical and relevant. Do your best to salvage what you can. You never know.  May be a gold mine buried in there!


Don't just take my advice. Listen to the advice of professionals.

Cmoneyspinner on Over-Blog | My Pain, Your Gain

Using a free account at a site called OverBlog. It’s sort of like Tumblr or Pinterest, in that it’s really easy to share links, photos, etc. and write your own content. My posts date back to April 2015 and the last time there was any activity was June 2016.  Creating a blog was easy and the site does have visual appeal. However, my site does not get much traffic, so I don't spend a lot of time there.


More details at related link: 

Cmoneyspinner on Over-Blog | My Pain, Your Gain




Sharing a quick list of the most recent posts below and also some embedded content. This blog has its usefulness in that it creates a space on the Internet for a collection of random things that are of interest to me, e.g. news about world affairs which become history reference markers, food and drink, entertainment, etc.

Do you use OverBlog?  Would be interested in knowing your experience.  Feel free to comment and share a link.

Advantages of Collections on Google Plus

Are you a Google Plusser? Why not? Didn't create an account because there were predictions that Google management was considering kicking the network to the curb? Yes.  There was a buzz about that.

Several years back when Google Plus social media network was still in test mode, I received an invitation via eMail to participate in the project. When the decision was made to open to the public, I was already on board and they even gave me a custom URL for my profile.  My G+ experience has been very pleasant, although there are probably loads of features I have not learned how to use.

One of the features I have learned to use is the Collections.



Google Plus Collections is Google's answer to Pinterest users. Pinterest boards are for you to arrange your interests in an orderly fashion.  G+ Collections help you arrange your G+ posts in an orderly manner.  Why would you need to do that?  Ever try to search for one of your posts or links that you shared into the stream from a few years back?


All my G-Plus activity goes back several years. Tried going to my profile posts stream and scrolling down. That didn't work. If you scroll down your profile page looking for old posts you will discover that the post stream only goes back so far. You say to yourself: “How can this be? Have my posts disappeared?” Of course not! This is Google we're talking about! If Facebook can share your memories with you from years gone by, then there had better be a way to search for and find your old Google Plus posts.

Found a way to do that. It wasn't exactly simple. But it was doable. It is not easy to explain the process, so I'll direct you to the post where I found the information which I saved for future reference in my G+ Collections created for my business page called Tips and Advice for Business (Work-at-Home, etc.):





So how does this all tie together? If you find your old Google Plus activity and move it to your Collections activity, for your profile or your business page, then later you can just go there and retrieve your old posts. As a test, moved an old post from 2012 to a collection on my profile. View here.

So! You can probably conclude that although G+ Collections are good for organizing your Plus activity, in my opinion, the primary advantage of maintaining Collections on Google Plus is that you can retrieve your activity history.

Side Note:
  • All of my G+ Collections are set to Public, so you if you want to look at how my collections are organized, you can view the content even if you are not a member of the network. My Writings, My Work, My World, My Way is my collection which appears on my profile.  (In comparison, you have to have an account with Pinterest to view my various pinboards.  My profile shows 57 boards which include group boards.  Home Business Works on Pinterest.)

Did you find this blog post helpful?
Please let me know by leaving a comment and/or sharing with others.  Thanks! :)
