Chapter 9: Social Media
By Leslie A. Fischman
1. What Brought Me to Social Media: To Provide a Voice to Myself and Others
It never feels quite right when everything first comes together. Nothing pre-assembled at first glance ever feels perfect, Usually anything nuanced or new is difficult to accept. Or so it seems, younger generations perhaps thing this is information that has always been known therefore do not value MYMOLLYDOLL nor my campaign #bloggingcampaign. Before there was no social media (mixfeeds) just tweets without hashtags, and links without progress essential to maintaining a blog, via advertisement, now we have special programs for influencers and the liking to campaign for themselves and their causes, with new ad bases for their sites. –Because of my suicide during mixfeed 2008, I made it a point upon return to perfect newsfeeding through my thoughtful writings and discourse 2013-2016, why we are were we are now among highly supported institutions of thought. Monetized, with improved settings to boot. It’s been a long time coming. The fruits of our hard earned labor are for all to enjoy in peace.
2. Social Media Addiction and How it has Impacted Me in my Life
The best cure for any obsession or repetitive activity is discipline. Social Media is a great fix for entertaining ones self and others but it is highly addicting. To each his own. There are ways to use Social Media to bring awareness to important causes, and to put on display your life & greatest achievements (things you are proud to share about yourself). For everything else there's Journaling and keeping a Diary of some sorts to recollect your thoughts and figure out what's bothering you and what you're having trouble with in life that's keeping you from achieving in life. Whether it be personal circumstances or anything that's happened to you -There's a time & a place to share, and more times than not Social Media is not the best place to share when going through a problem but the best place to share after a problem has already been dealt with & you're reflecting upon your thoughts & past circumstances. This is why I have not been writing on Twitter everyday but by quotes, because I have been talking to a close friend & confidant about my problems, so that I can deal with my problems & move forward, continue to help others, in reflection, having already processed my emotions, feelings, insecurities, questions, and confusions about life, how life works, & my purpose in life, without getting suicidal & being proud of who I am, how far I've come, & how much I've grown over the past year. That is what I share here, my personal growth & realizations -what I've learned through self reflection. This is my Self Help Book, to help others process & similarly move forward with their lives, not feel helpless, suicidal, or worthless when not achieving in life successful or wealthy.
3. Writing Against All Odds: Continuing to Write Post Controversy
My first manuscript got taken down in a lawsuit. @mymollydoll starting over, I wrote for 4 years, and everything had to be deleted over one hashtag, my life's work, gone. Starting over now, all my #lifequotes gone, it's no big deal, only to me, valuable, but treated as trash. –But a few in part saved on my Dell Desktop, for that I am grateful. If life were easy then we'd have things all figured out. Know how to react at any given point, in time, and end up right where we want to be always. But that isn't the case, sometimes we find ourselves at odds w/others, not to our liking, but to theirs, how we know we're at faultIn life any power aquired, is power given away, power generated from oneself, and given to another, by whom once rejected, is power given by our own faults to another. It is your choice to give others the power to turn on you, by the words your share about whom and to whom and for purpose those words are shared, best always to share your thoughts about yourself, not thoughts about others, or refer to interactions, but reflections are best in the arena of social media. For personal consciousness, to be rid of any paranoid thoughts or delusion, as a writer you are responsible for the voices in your head, and you are responsible for the communications you have upon interaction with others, professionally or personally, for better or worse, always be the best judge of your own character, before seeking the approval from others, that will be sure to set you apart, confidence is key to public speaking, and blogging on social media is not different. Do not allow others to, dismember you and your progress as a writer, why best to write alone, absent communications with others, hear your voice first before others, when in doubt of the current state of affairs to whom your audience calls into question, your clarity of thoughts shared is how you will be judged, not by the character of those who surround you or who do or do not support you in your writing endeavors online.
4. What to Keep in Mind While Blogging
You must understand first yourself well before able to understand another well what we don't understand we can't see in ourselves or in another. A deficiency of man is seeing only what we know to see beyond what we can comprehend requires discipline to put together new perspectives. To see new requires trust within yourself & your surroundings which can only be achieved by upkeep of your esteem & integrity, be confident. Otherwise best not to experiment maintain stability and not think too hard on what doesn't make sense & just focus on what does & not question. When you are on uneven footing in life not stable not confident to question causes paranoia you need to be strong mentally first to face challenges in life, including blogging in the mainstream in public. Never step into the ring and battle thoughts or others on moral or ethical grounds unless you have the backing to buffer your grounds to resolve, any ongoing or current disputes, including your own issue personal, not influence the direction or focus of your audience, who’s happiness you help maintain, stable writers make stable audience members.
