I recently attended a seminar on branding and the use of social media in business. Apparently only 20% of posts should be about your business and 80% should be “social”. I am aware I mainly use facebook, twitter and my website for tea with jud related topics, but in all honesty, that is the only reason I have them. This is not to say I am not a social person, I am very social!
Another point stressed in this seminar was that my business is me, I am my brand, therefore I AM TEA WITH JUD. I hope you like my work regardless of my likes and dislikes, but to a certain extent my interests and social life do influence what I make. I hope my personality already comes across through my pottery, knitting patterns, displays, photography and the blurbs that I post. I don’t see the relevance of the extra 8O% plus, i don’t have the time!
For those of you who are interested, and for the purpose of this blog here is proof that i am not a robot, I don’t talk about my business ALL the time; my attempt at being a little more social.
I love snow more than anything. I love skiing. I love wearing cardigans. I love painting my nails red. I like knitting hats, but I don’t like wearing them as they mess up my fringe. I love colour, pattern and have a huge weakness for leopard print. I love music; listening to it, attempting to play it and dancing to it. I love laughing. I love camping and swimming in the sea. I love my family, and I love being an auntie – I have 2 nieces and 2 nephews, they are so cool. I love going on adventures with my friends. I miss my friends who live far away. I am not embarrassed to admit I LOVE one direction and Harry Styles!
I do not like people who are selfish or people who lie. I deplore laziness. I also despise music by Simply red.
I think that is all the important stuff you need to know.
Cheerio for now.
ps: my next blog will be 1OO% work related…
