I am still roaming around aimlessly on the internet. I am told that social networking should not look like it is marketing. Are you kidding? It seems that ninety percent of what I see is obvious marketing. Occasionally I read a post from someone who admits they have been kicked off Facebook or Twitter for marketing, but then they turn around and open another account that is named something else and go right back to the same program advertising a product, a business, or a service which they themselves offer.
I must admit that there are some groups that call themselves shameless self promoters. I don’t have a problem with that and I guess the social networking sites don’t either. Then there are groups who want to link their websites up which is supposed to help you sell whatever you’re selling. So, I found people pushing their real estate office, mortgage company, sunflower products, beauty products, custon bakery goods, etc. I am interested in people knowing about my memoir, Becoming Alice. I don’t seem to fit in anywhere.
Well, that’s nothing new for me. If you’d read my book, you’d know why. WWII had a lot to do with that, but that’s over now. So here I am still strying to find my niche. I thought one way was to ask those of you who are gracious enough to be following me, to let me know where you come from. Are you history buffs … adolescents … Jewish … family therapists … or what? Why is it that you are interested in an author who wrote a true story about a kid who escaped from Nazi persecution, grew up feeling different and an outsider, much like a fish out of water, lived within a mixed up, fighting, agonizing family with unsolved problems, trying to get to a better place in live.
From which one of the niches do you come from? Please introduce yourself with a comment.
