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.

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.

How Your Klout Score Can Help Your Professional Career

Klout is a social media website that measures how effective people are when interacting with others on social media pages. It also measures how others on social media pages talk about you. Klout uses social media analytics to rank its users, with a number between 1-100. The higher the score, the more influence you have.
