How (not) To: Hate Comments

Chapter 4 of "The Art of Social Media"  by Guy Kawasaki talks about the correct way to address comments, how to tell the difference between a genuinely passionate person, and what is called a "troll". Whether they're constructive, or somewhat negative, or you-kiss-your-mother-with-that-mouth?, comments aren't always easy to read. I want to preface this by saying I have only received lovely comments on this blog, and I appreciate every single one. They truly do make my day, so please keep commenting! However, some people do not have as nice of viewers as I do, like YouTubers.

For those who know me well enough know I watch A LOT of YouTube. I'll most likely be doing a separate blog on my favorite things to watch on YouTube, who I'm subscribed to and all that good stuff, but for now I just want to address YouTube hate comments. I've challenged myself with scrolling through the comments of some YouTubers I watch and finding some of the worst comment…

Life is More Fun When You're Involved

Last week in my introduction post I told you that I'd give more information about various clubs on ONU's campus. Because I really only have knowledge on the one's I'm involved in, I figured we'd start there. I'll be linking sites and people's emails in case you want to get involved in these organizations as well!

This is nice because it is right on campus, its a small time commitment, and it's an amazing way to just unwind at the end of the week and give the Lord an hour of your time. We can appreciate just how busy each of us are in a week, so the practices are kept to a minimum and are based off of when everyone is available to rehearse.  If you are musically inclined, or even if you aren't, and want a way to get involved in ONU Religious Life I highly recommend Chapel Band.

My Top Tinder Tips

I'm gonna cut right to the chase, today we're talking about Tinder.  Before I get into it, I should probably explain what Tinder is for those who may not know. Tinder is a dating app, where people can either swipe left to ignore, or swipe right to match. Once you match with someone, you can then choose to message them, but you both have to swipe right on each other in order to become a match. Your pool of potential matches is based on your geographical location and your preferred gender.

The book we're reading in my class "The Art of Social Media" by Guy Kawasaki, has a wonderful blurb about social media profiles and he makes a connection to Tinder profiles. Kawasaki says to treat your profiles as if they are Tinder profiles, not E-Harmony. People do not always sit there and study your profile, they might just make snap judgments about it, so you should prepare for that to happen. Today, I am going to expand on his thoughts and tell you my three tips to maximizin…
