I think I'm going to be "rebranding" this blog soon. Maybe new colours, definitely a new name, something more compelling than 'jordyssocialmedia' and 'Marketing Me' I think.
More focus on lighthearted content, but still a bunch of stuff on how the career search is going. I've developed some marketing philosophy I plan to abide by going forward so I think I'll make that stuff the core of the blog so as to me stay 'on brand' so to speak as I forge forward into the marketing world.
You'll see what I mean when I get around to it, assuming I don't get overwhelmed with schoolwork or becoming Charlie Sheen's social media Intern.
I feel like I should put this somewhere. I'm sitting here listening through Avril Lavigne's fourth studio album Goodbye Lullaby for probably the eighth time.
It's been very interesting to grow up with her music. Let Go came out when she was 17 or so, and I was 15. I was a big fan of the music and her message at that time... I also really liked Under My Skin but then sort of stopped listening to her a lot by the time The Best Damn Thing was out. But old songs on my computer and the ease of acquiring music via iTunes brought me back just in time for Goodbye Lullaby's release.
Between Under My Skin and now, I've grown up a lot. And I can get that sense from her as I listen to this new album. I'm reconnecting in the same way I did when I was 15, the message rings through and the world seems like a very good place when I tune in. Not that I'm pessimistic otherwise, but her music adds this layer of inspiration. It's great music at face value, a meaningful message at a deeper level, and the fact that I have this personal connection to it underscores everything fantastically.
This is why music is so important, it's why she does it, it's why we listen.
Damn, I let this field lie fallow for a bit didn't I? It happened across the whole social media landscape for me between October and about a month ago I guess. Holidays, life, etc.
But then I slowly got sucked back into it all. A lot of my peers have adopted Twitter in the past few months, and I've been being a bit of a Facebook junkie lately.
Rewards are funny too... I noticed my share price improving again on Empire Avenue and felt supremely inspired to keep on social media - ing. Good on them for tapping into soft part of my head that houses primal addictive tendencies.
With five weeks to go in this MBA I'll be glued to the computer as the pace of schoolwork increases. Which means I'll hopefully be updating this and other social media platforms of mine too!
