Building a blog for myself that others will love

I am actually pretty excited for my blog! I decided to do my blog on something I find to be personal and beneficial to myself, however at the same time I know it could be beneficial to others as well. I’ve titled my blog “Inhale. Exhale. Yoga”. In it I plan to implement all things to know for beginners practicing yoga. I am a beginner at yoga, so it’s going to be a journey for myself as well, and I’m glad that I’ll have this blog to be able to document it.

Blah Blah Blah...Blogging?

When it comes to blogging, and being completely honest (something the pros say you should do) I immediately picture some introvert hiding in their bedroom, sitting behind his/her computer screen and pouring out their feelings to thousands of strangers. Similar to most people who do not blog, I was quick to judge something that I didn’t actually understand and have realized I fear even trying.

I'm finally a blogger!

I've wanted to start a blog for as long as I can remember, but I've always been nervous about it. I feel like nobody will read it and I'll just be writing for no reason. I'm happy that this class is forcing me to break out of my shell and create my own blog, because I know that it is a beneficial skill for me to have.

Social Media and Your Professional Career

Although I signed up for a Klout account over a year ago, I never considered it anything more than a way for the web-addicted to boost their egos. I coincidentally read an article about Klout a couple weeks ago but shirked it off—what could it really matter? After entering this course, however, I realize that it actually means a lot more than that.

Professional social media development by using Klout

Klout Score

Klout is something that was very new to me before taking this course. I understand the Klout is used to measure your social media usage with a Klout score. The Klout score helps you gage how you can improve in areas of social media based on which sites you use. When I first logged into Klout I had a Score of 10. After a few days and increased activity on my social media accounts my Klout score has raised to 51.
