Social Media Tips for Everyone

This week in class we finished up the book I've been telling you guys about, "The Art of Social Media" by Guy Kawasaki and Peg Fitzpatrick. This book was one of the best books I've ever been required to read for a class, and if you're a social media noob like me you'll probably resonate with a good portion of it. However, there are a lot of things I learned that I definitely will be using in my (hopefully) future career in social media. This book taught me that there is an actual science behind social media, believe it or not, and it is not just a free for all.

Here are some social media tips I think everyone can learn from this book:

1. Promote but don't overshare.

2. Hashtag your posts, honey.

3. PICTURES PICTURES PICTURES. Always use pictures.

4. ALWAYS keep it classy.

5. If you're bored, they're bored.

6. Sell yourself but don't buy followers.

7. Use your posts to tell a story

8. Limit the selfies, ladies.

9. Be your biggest fan. If you d…

College is Hard

I try to keep it mostly positive on here, but I would just like to go on a bit of a rant today. I think some of you might agree with me, and others may have never given this topic a single thought.

College is hard.

If you're in college anywhere you should already feel so proud of yourself. Not everyone is. Some people purposely don't, but that's fine, too. You are going to school, to get a degree, to have a career, to support a family. That's a big deal. Be proud of it, and be proud that others are, too.

We've all been up late at night because we were studying for an exam, or pulled an all-nighter to write a paper, or napped because we were so exhausted from school even though we had a million-and-one things on our to-do lists. We know how hard it is to be a college student.

 Everyone is different. Not everyone could study law.  Not everyone could study art. Not everyone could study business, or pharmacy, or medicine, or ANYTHING for that matter. You have the freed…

A Spotlight on Shiori

For this Monday's blog, we were given the assignment to record a podcast with someone who is an expert in their field. I thought about this for a bit and couldn't come up with anything, but then I thought of Shiori. Shiori is one of my sisters from Zeta Tau Alpha that I met last year. She's from Tokyo, Japan. She is one of the sweetest, most genuine people I've ever met and I had the pleasure of sitting down with her for ten minutes and learning more about her, Japan and her journey to America. I have included a link to the podcast with Shiori if you want to give it a listen!

In this podcast, Shiori told me about how she first discovered she wanted to study in America. It started when she first studied in Canada in junior high, and by learning some Canadian and even American culture, a newfound dream of hers became studying in America.

If you're ever around Shiori, you'll quickly realize she's usually always cold. This was quite funny to me as a brisk Sept…
