This One Time at Band Camp …..

by Just B Socialized

Did that get your attention? I thought so!

When you think about the articles that pop up on your Facebook or Twitter feeds, how do you decide what to read? Considering the only part you see most of the time is the headline, I would take a guess that is what entices you to click. Choosing a spunky eye-catching headline or title can make or break your blog.

I write a personal blog which is a bit more casual than this one, so I tend to make a good effort to complete my post with a kick ass title. On this blog and others that are more formal, I often tone my humor down a bit.  But is that something I really need to do? Not after seeing these headlines from some pretty respectable organizations.

Red Cross

WWF – Canada

Youth Service America

Pretty cool, hey?

I believe that, as long as your content stays true to who you are as an organization, or blogger, then take the risk and play around with your titles a bit. Just make sure you are not offending anyone even if it is unintentional. Some say bad press can really be good press in the end, but I say be respectable and aim to have fun rather than stir the pot.

How One Tweet Sparked the Change that I Had Been Searching For

by Just B Socialized

Since I am advocating for the WAHM, I should share with you what inspired me to do so. I mean, yes my own child and a fear of childcare did in fact help push me to stay home and work, but there was also a book that inspired me to pursue my passions.

This book was like a good kick in the butt for me. I discovered so many cools ideas for a home business along with neat little tips to make that business work. I always knew you could actually make money as a Blogger, but was clueless as to how. Now I know, and am using this newly found knowledge to co-write a Kindle book for Mom Bloggers. This e-book will be the first in a series dedicated to the aspiring WAHM, and the best part is …. I am working on them with the author of the book sparked me to get going. How cool is that? I find a book that encourages me to follow my dreams and the one who wrote it is now personally guiding me along. All it took was a Tweet to say thanks for writing such a helpful book.

I guess the moral of this story is to take time and say thanks to those who inspire you. A 140 character Tweet changed the course of my life. Maybe it can do the same for you!

Order your own copy of How to Start a Home Based Business to Become a Work-at-Home Mom here. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

We as Mothers deserve to have happy families, to fulfill our dreams and create balanced lives. Take that first step to achieving that balance and get this book!

And So It Begins ….. For The Last Time

by Just B Socialized

My name is Leah and I change the direction of my work CONSTANTLY.

Have you ever seen the movie “Up”? Ya know the part where the old man and the boy meet the dog who wears a collar that translates his barks into words, and he gets distracted by squirrels? I am that dog. I find a goal and work towards it. Then all of a sudden another path appears and I follow it. Squirrel!

So, here I was with my focus on NPOs and aiding them with their social media and volunteer relations, which I will continue to do, but I am starting to find a different niche for myself. Writing. I blog for myself and others, I am co-writing a series of Kindle books with a fabulous lady who I admire, and I aspire to write YA novels. I still hold a love for social media and all things online marketing as I do that for work as well, so why not just do it all? Who says I can’t guide NPOs and WAHMs together? No one.

With all this said, I have made my final decision. I am going to write my imperfect heart out, help WAHMs become successful in their passions, and share what I learn when it comes to social media.

Here I go!
