“The untold want, by life and land ne’er granted,
Now, Voyager, sail thou forth, to seek and find.”
Walt Witman 1819-1892
Time to begin.
After researching this whole internet social media world, and refusing to blog because I have absolutely nothing to write about, I have discovered their is a need to blog if you want to be recognized, remain relevant, and avoid redundancy. Now that being said, I am sure, that I will fall into the cavernous hole of one of the “3Rs” just because I am old, a woman, and I’m whiter than white of Caucasian extraction. Someday, I must research where my motherland really is, because Ancestry.com has me no where near the Caucasus Mountain Ranges. (However, I did make an interesting discovery a few months ago – of course that would be interesting to me and me alone. If one makes an error in calculating the longitude and latitude of ones’ address by one digit, Google maps will take one to the top of the Himalayan Mountain Ranges.) But I digress.
My task today is to blog at least 500 words and maybe a 1000 using keywords that relate back to what ever I am on social media about. In fact, I feel so overwhelmed by all of this, that it wouldn’t take much to toss this whole venture in the big round filing cabinet. I know nothing about SEOs, CSS, YOAST, or Adwords. When I ask for help, I get, the routine “Oh, I don’t know nutt’n bout birth’n babies, Ms Scarlett!” Why does all this have to be so complicated. WAA WAA WAA….I’m over it. On to YouTube – there must be a tutorial just waiting for me…
Good lord, that’s the other thing. I need to figure out how to get video onto my web pages. You see, video takes longer for folks to watch, thus they remain longer on your page, thus, increasing your relevancy to Google (you remember the 3Rs!)
