    5 sign you are getting lazy of social media

    5 sign you are getting lazy of social media

    It’s not gonna be 1001 sign that I will list down here but enough to just write this article. If you read my private blog www.feliciatheodorus.com. – I made this blog to tell about my current life, mood and what I am up to. I always fond of blogging but perhaps not social media, because I am not so good with caption and posting personal stuff is not my forte too. I am introvert as you can tell.

    If you happened to open my private blog above, I mentioned that I’m having social media withdrawal. Some people suffer from blogging withdrawal while I am so happy writing stuff online. This moody feeling happened ever since I travel for my visa application 10 days without an internet connection at all and always been so busy with discovering cuisine and shopping. Even after I am back in Singapore. I’m still packed with a long queue of the interview, as you know I am currently looking for a job.

    At that time, I was doing collab with Daniel Wellington, but the good things that it is ended up when I am back to Singapore. I have been so tired with my schedule. Just to share with you, I have been running this blog as my full-time job over the past years, and right now I probably need to consider doing this as part of my fun time, when I really have nothing to do.

    Therefore I am thinking to just share with you, all of those sign that I recently suffered.

    It’s been over 3 month now. I still trying to post on social media right now, because I wanted to still engage with my audience and I really don;t want you guys to feel neglected.

    The sign that you are getting lazy of social media:

    Photo by Waqar on Unsplash

    You are exhausted and tired

    This is the best description of ‘lazy’ feeling. We are all exhausted, there is a point in life, where we reach that climax because we keep on doing what we often do. It’s like you are going to office nonstop. People keep thinking that content curator or being a blogger is a perfect job to run from actual job, where you have to wake up whenever you like. By fact, every content creator is waking up early in the morning every day and posting stuff, editing, creating a mood board. They have been doing it almost every day and even public holiday because that’s where you will see the phone and their content.

    BORED doing same stuff everyday

    For some of you who is the audience of their content may never think that this is the 2nd main reason.

    “That fame, popularity and money who could ever thought that they feel bored doing it. You get paid of posting stuff while some of us are”

    For one content that you saw on Instagram, there are many editing that blogger required to do, because it wasn’t attractive, not good enough and hundred of reason. If you see any Youtuber that has been doing youtube video and rant about brands that pulling out the collab because they think it is not good enough. Then, that’s the reason why several bloggers are exhausted, tired and bored of repetitive situation.

    No engagement meaning no money. Buying Instagram likes or followers these days doesn’t makeup for it. Those people who buy these kind of things are the one who still wanna grow. The paid partnership provide analytics for the engagement and setting every social media to business, meaning real analytics to give to the brands.

    Brands have their ways of pulling out the best and hard work blogger to work with them.

    Unhealthy industry

    I have no ideas about other industry than BEAUTY alone. After 3 years in this industy, I reliaze how fake people can be even the blogger that looks so innocent. They have been lusting over collab and sponsorship. They will take all the necessary possible action to just do their own stuff. I met most of them, thankfully I meet some bloggers who are doing their stuff and focus alone on their content. The good things is we are following each others via personal social media.

    Not only bloggers, even the brands/business are often catfishing influencers and prefer bigger influencers to work with them. There is nowhere this small influencers could grow without sudden instant of exposure from big influencers.

    No time for love one and self

    This is my main reason, for every time I go out with people that I care right now I feel there is no need to take video/photo for my Snapchat or Instagram stories but focused on them. It’s tiring unless I find something cute to share not has to be always taking video. In South East Asia, staying update is a must, probably because of FOMO vibes. Last time I check I don’t have any.

    Too busy with important stuff

    For me, I am quite busy thinking of applying for a job, getting myself on interview and getting that job. Helping my dad with his business and also applying for other important stuff that need official government permission such as visa application. Nonetheless, I also have to travel here and there, not because of leisure but important matter to attend. someone have life other than social media.

    If I have to post on social media, I need to create mood board for it and make the content as attractive as possible, which takes a lot of time. Even for this article it takes me about half hours since the internet connection is slow and I really need to change my laptop.

    Content creation taking all the focus and energy much. PewDiePie takes almost everyday to make YouTube video and he somehow have his own office to do it and employ people to help him. That alone is for YouTube, and he seldom post on Instagram. What if a blogger have to post on blog, YouTube and social media? Not anyone as lucky as PewDiePie, right?

    That’s all for today articles. Hope you don’t mind if I digging my hidden hole and just be there for a while as long as possible. Anyway, in 2019 I will be changing the content of this website, but still thinking through with the ideas. Ciao from now!

    My 1st years of blogging

    My 1st years of blogging

    Hi lovelies, I wish you enjoy your weekend. A good news to share with you that I am so happy you subscribe to my blog. Thank you so much, it means so big to me. I hope that you continue to join as an insider of this blog and sending feedback regarding anything by replying directly to the mail.

    I was thinking a few days back to either write up about my blogging journey and decided to write my first years og blogging instead and share it to you. Blogging has always been my hobby, or should I say writing is my hobby. I love writing about anything that pops into my mind. The first platform that I use is Tumblr, it’s really a good platform to share content because it has the option to re-blog. I love Tumblr, up till now I still use it to write like my personal diary: itsfelicialife.tumblr.com

    Blogging is fun for me, so I don’t mind to pay for my passion. It has allowed me to connect with people who share the same passion with me and over the years I have been meeting online with supportive people who make really good content. It is really nice to see my Instagram homepage feel of useful information and attractive content.

    “My first year was tough”

    I could say that I learn in a bitter way at the beginning. I get brands deal with popular brands that you like t visit. Never realize that business not actually like an honest review, since I providing a review based on my testing procedural and experience upon using the product. The brands sent me as part of a gift, and I didn’t like the product. The quality is bad.

    Back then, I only things to provide content for my readers.  I buy the product, doing the test and share it online. For me, it’s really fun things to do because there is no deadline whatsoever. I get to connect with my favorite brands and establish a relationship with them. My photography and content are really sucked, if I were to read my first article, I probably going to throw up. It is ugly but as I keep on writing, I establish my own style of writing and develop new ideas.

    The Addiction

    The writing just flowing naturally and I get quite itchy sometimes if I don’t write anything. It’s like an addiction that I cannot remove. I just feel that I have to write content, and post something online. It is quite scary but I did some research few bloggers are experienced the same things. It is wasn’t entirely bad things but if a blogger desperate and stressed about it, it won’t be good.

    I was stressed out last time because the blog wasn’t running so well. I decided to stop and close the account but my sister says to continue and only post when I want to post. Therefore, I doing blogging and social media post withdraw for a month on my second years. I did it. It feels awesome to know that I can control my own freakout.

    I also suffer from stress because I didn’t get enough brand collab at first years yet I kept doing my content, publishing it almost every day. There is a time where I really feel so sad because blogging is not what I expect it should be. It’s a hard job, it is a really hard job, and I don’t know where I am going at that time. I don’t know what things I should do. My English is bad and that takes lots of part in my original content. My sister helped me to fix it.

    I was also stressed at that time because I have been looking for a job but didn’t get one. I have nowhere to go and need to make an income, therefore I seeling lots of my stuff online, and I feel so thankful with people who purchased it because they contribute with my life being and this blog as well. It’s quite a moment.

    Ever since that time, I decided to provide blogging tips on this blog and I did. I am so grateful that anyone who follows the tips feels that is useful and still doing it up till now. I did provide blogging tips such as how to outsource your income thru blogging.

    This blog can run up till now, not because of my own hard work but my sister as well and all the relevant people.

    Some of these people may have no ideas that they contribute to this blog, such as leaving a feedback comment. I was truly happy every time I read people comment and grateful to anyone who purchases my lashes. They may not know that they contribute much but they indeed did.

    Now, I am not stressing so much to make good content or even post on social media but when I feel that I have good content that I want to share. I have a life and I need to also spend time with people who matter to me. Spending some relax time with me. I will never put pressure to earn income thru this blog anymore but leave it as it is. If the fortune comes, it will come but I am still gonna looking out for a job that I did want to pursue.

    Blogging can be fun when I want to do it not because of the earning but passion. Dealing with the due date and brands pressure to do exposure is really much to take from time and effort because establishing a good content thru collab need to be revised multiple times. It is work as a portfolio for a brand to review and approve. It is the full concept of digital advertising.

    Let me know what your impression or thought or feedback about the article? How is your first year of doing something that you passionate about? Spill your tea!

    BLOGGING – THE BURN BOOK: TYPE OF PEOPLE THAT I MEET ON THIS INDUSTRY

    BLOGGING – THE BURN BOOK: TYPE OF PEOPLE THAT I MEET ON THIS INDUSTRY

    The form you are trying to view has been unpublished.

    Hey guys, welcome back to my blog and welcome to the new edition that I will add on my blog

    THE BURN BOOK

    For those of you who really curious about what’s really happening in blogging and beauty industry.

    Sour… Bitter… Sweet… Salty

    I have been blogging for quite sometimes and of course, I get all the experience. Let’s break it into 3 section:

    • Brands/Business
    • Blogger
    • That ‘People’s’

    THE BRANDS

    This section, I will be talking about the person behind their social media first, which is the social media manager themselves or the one who holds the phone and got the brand Instagram account, which absolutely is not the founder AT ALL. This person somehow either fall on PR people or Digital media people, but both of this department actually don’t really admit that they need to hire social media manager.

    The pay is low which only $1800 is the max pay or the company only want to pay hourly, since they do not necessarily need this person to keep posting.

    What did they do? Not much!

    • Creating content by stealing reposting other picture, some with tag or mention and some doesn’t give a f**k to mention the creator of the content.
    • Engaging by replying comment or DM

    That’s it! if you are the brands, how much you willing to pay them? some of them are only senior high school graduated and work as a part-timer.

    UNLESS

    This brand really did want to invest in hiring a social media manager that also do graphic and content creation, but the position will NOT be Social Media Manager but…

    Digital Marketing Executive cum Social Media manager

    This person will create content and publish on the brand website. They manage the web layout, taking photography and even editorial. Contribute to the e-magazine, managing influencer, and all other stuff that involving marketing campaign.

    This is why you meet brands that succeed in the industry and others who doesn’t. Took an example of Juvia’s Place, the social media manager are stealing Temptalia content that later the founder have to apologize. Well… I have no ideas if the person behind their social media is the part-timer that I talked above or the full-fledged marketing expert.

     

    I have met 2 brands that are really as bad as it is…

    The PR people are good but the person that manages the social media is just bad. Let’s say brand B and Brand C.

    I have done a partnership with brand B and earn a commission based purchase. The PR people was so good with me till the time when I posted on Instagram and their social media manager said to me “We (brand C) has no knowledge that you are part of our brand’s seller”

    I was like “Huh! dafuq” is this person okay?

    Then I asked the PR people to explain to the social media manager about what going on with me and the brands. You see the point, nobody in the office is thinking that this particular position need to exist or the company needs to hire one particular person for full-time with a salary of $2000.00 and above + the social media manager will be the last or never will be the person to know what’s going on in the department, nobody told them. All they do just engage and following, like what we all do as a basic person who uses social media.

    With the brand C, when they are inviting me to the event. This is not happening with me but.. let’s continue with the story.. it happened when all the local influencers in Singapore are attending to their event. Wel.. let’s say that as someone who has 10 years experience in the marketing industry that this particular product of them will not be going to be high in selling in Singapore. I guess nobody told the brands about the market, nobody goes to Singapore and overviewing the market, then surely you need a team to do it and reporting back to the office, whether or not they need to persuade or stand still. Knowing your war zone is necessary and business is war zone that doesn’t involve the weapon.

    Brands always can decide what they want to sell or not.

    If there is less demand, likely they won’t sell the product. So, local influencers are attending, they get a gift of this particular product and then back at home. The product launch run smoothly, yet… the sell…. not much. This brand not so high demand. People don’t know what the product to purchase from this brands. Brands need to have one big power product. For example, Anastasia Beverly Hills brow product is well- known. Lot’s of people are willing to buy the brow product and then suddenly their palette is booming, why is that can even happen?

    The brand C unfollow every local influencer that the social media manager follow using this brand C account right after the launch party and unfollow after 6 months without high sell, why brand C can’t have a high selling point like ABH have for their palette?

    You know why right?

    The product launch is a failure or it is marketing failure? Some of the influencers are giving away the product.

    This product is highlighter that comes in liquid. They have no ideas how to use it. The brand doesn’t teach the audience how to use it or if I may say how to flaunt it. Wasting a lot of money to give all local influencers the product is not going to make ROI happened.

    This is makeup, not apparel. Apparel everyone will know to wear it, but makeup.. you gotta teach people on how to use it. Let’s see another side point: if the brand C engage with the 1-2 local influencer and asked them to promote by telling them to tell the audience the right many ways of using the products. The result may be different.

    Singapore is the largest shopping place in SE Asia, people come all over the world. Female will buy makeup. You are not only targeting Singaporean but all the people who will be interested in the product. How will they be interested if they have no ideas on how to use it? if you are not going to tell.

    THE BRAND ITSELF ARE ALSO WORST

    Brands nowadays love to steal  ‘requesting’ content by providing hashtag of #YESBRANDX, they are taking all of your content without mentioning you or even acknowledge that you are the person behind this creative content that they will use for commercial purpose an s such as advertisement. They will put your content on their website but never mention that it’s from you. There is 1 particular brand that asked me to do so, I will reveal it next time, which brands and it will be going to be so juicy. I will also talk about other popular brands that you may support right now about their cocky decision of not making one particular skincare product that most of dry skin people like me, going to need it.


    The BLOGGER

    Whose says that Blogger is the best people in this industry? you won’t meet many bloggers that will support you but if you get, do treasure them. Bloggers are paid based on their ‘influence’, that’s what the new bloggers believe.

    Not many new bloggers know that brands picked them based on their vibes, mood board and even personality, therefore lot’s of them resolve in stealing each other’s ideas and exposure exposure exposure. For the veteran blogger, since they already have won their battleground, they are NOT that lusting over PR list Normally, this blogger is those who have a full-time work in the current industry. For beauty industry, I meet the blogger who is actually a skin doctor, those who owned pharmacy or a facialist or someone who is not talking the same things.

    NEW bloggers who just want to do ‘blog’ to get sponsorship or collaboration without giving a f**k about content creation – you will meet lots of them, they like to follow and unfollow people around. Some of them even have the nasty attitude. I joined a social media girls facebook group and there is one particular member that really lust over likes and comment. She wants all of us to comment but she never did the same, when the rules are actually we all going to comment on each other post and yes, I will say that Instagram is all about a comment and follow, you will get the return.

    But, not many people want to do the same, with the thought of making ownself popular.

    This 3 types of people, I often meet during my early years of blogging, I really felt the nasty side of this industry, however within the time I become selective of what kind of blogger/influencer and brands that I am willing to build a relationship with.

    I am a woman, of course having to work in this industry, meaning I will get to see lot’s of people and I am someone who loves to build a relationship so, if I were to work for them, I can’t work in comfort. It’s really important to work with people that you feel comfortable with so, you can tell your creative ideas to them because you feel the connection.

     


    ‘THAT’ PEOPLE’s

    This section will be about influencer or those who have a blog but seldom update or blogger who also is an influencer. This kind of people are so picky in telling information about what kind of app that they used to edit. They are so secretive with the information that I feel as creative digital expert.

    “It just an app and the creator want everyone to install it. That’s the reason they do market the product to let people know and they could earn from subscription of the app”

    Do them a favor by telling everyone who asked about this app. You get nothing to lose and you also help the creator to earn a bit of money that she or he may use for living and feed their family.

    “Why be so picky?”

    “What the need to be so secretive about it?”

    This happened when I asked recent new travel blogger about the app that she use, it’s interesting and since I need to follow up what happened on digital and tech world, that’s why I asked.

    She told me that “it’s photoshop app” and I was like “huh? please don’t bluff someone like me, there is nowhere that photoshop can do video thingy. It’s photoshop, it’s for photo NOT moving object but later I found out from other bloggers who willing to tell me since she knows what work I been doing for this past 10 years.

    For those of you who might be wondering what I have done with my family. I have been doing traditional marketing for 8 years and 4 years trying to learn digital marketing. This blog allowed me to go into deeper space of the digital world. Thanks to you all for reading it. I didn’t in the very first place trying to earn anything from it but as my senior told me, why not put your contact so those brands can contact you and you can build your own portfolio to show them, what you work really is (which not everything is blogging)

    Ads placement location, the way the video advertising and everything. I do it! I love watching advertising. I love watching influencer to do their Ads. Love to find out what kind of influencer that suitable for my client as well.

    Am I influencer? certainly, I don’t try to be one. I can’t be one since I been working in this field for more than 10 years and provide the best solution for brands to market their product. More to it on coming up next articles.

     

    That’s all for this section. I pretty sure myself love to reveal a nasty side of this industry and making the burn book article.

    See you in the next session of THE BURN BOOK.

    Blogging.. I fall in love

    Blogging.. I fall in love

    The form you are trying to view has been unpublished.

    Blogging.. I am really in love. If you noticed recently I keep posting landscape photo on my Instagram. I have been trying to improve my skills. I was thinking to add more about photography tips, tutorial, tech and result to you.

    Most of the time, I post on twitter. doing micro blogging is such a fun things and since, Twitter can write lengthy wording, so I took the opportunity to type more on Twitter. On Instagram, I post landscape photography that I took during my travel. I often travel back and forth, between Singapore and Indonesia. Each time I travel, I will always grab that chances to make a nice photography and post it on social media. I measure my skills by how many people will going to like it, but it’s not good measure tools, since Instagram is a social media. I also posted it on 500px, the app provide a photography class for $6.58 per month, I can took any classes from professional photographer. They provide a photography competition and give rewards to those who win it. The competition is sponsored by well-known photography company such as Canon or 500px itself.

    Blogging is not my fulltime nor my part time job, I blog what I want to share. This blog is part of my passion and hobby, to write, to take photograph and share it. I also would like to make articles about blogging – ‘how to make a blog’ and ‘what tools that you need to make a blog’. This is my 2nd year of blogging, I gonna share my experience and skills that I currently have for those who are passionate on becoming a blogger or wanted to start a blog, but have no ideas where to start first. I move my blog from Tumblr into Blogger and now using WordPress. I think WordPress is the best choice to build your blog or even a website. There is more attractive themes that you can use freely. You can also navigate your blog accessories as you want.

    Since HTML is not my best friends and WordPress solve that problem by making everything simple when I want to customize my blog layout. In my honest opinion, when someone asked me ‘How is blogging feels?’,  my answer would be:

    “Blogging is the most tiring activity that I do. It took most of my time. Taking photograph, do some research, write, arrange and post. It’s not as easy as what people may think it is. The earning is not as much as what most people dream of. Only few brands will still coming back to you and collaborate with you.”

    Blogging can be a part time job BUT not a full time, unless you have nothing to do AT ALL or you have lots of free time. you can start try to do blogging as part time. However, don’t hope too much, because there is lots of new-raising blogger right now. Some of blogger who has been in this industry and didn’t get what they hope much which is sponsored product has been stop blogging even they have lot’s of readers.

    It’s not about readers or how many likes/followers you have but the vibes that you sent to those brands. They pick the vibes that suitable to their brands. It’s like making a micro advertising company and work as freelance advertiser for them. I will talked more about:

    • Brands, Sponsorship and Collaboration
    • Blogging tools
    • Photography tools
    • Others type of earnings that blogger can make.

    I’m currently trying to shape my YouTube video editing skills. When I think I have enough skills and experience, I will share it to you. I think digital world will be part of our daily life from now onwards. People connected by internet and it’s more easy to get any kind of information on internet than real world nowadays.

    2018 will be the year where I’m probably blog less compared to 2016. 2016 was the year where I really worked hard to make this blog happening. Back then, I just never thought this blog will get many viewers but keep updating the content. I often shared it on Facebook current and at that time, my Facebook friends was just 100 yet I’m happy that they are clicking and sharing the blog.

    There is friends who support and friends who like to reap what you have but, when you need them the most, they are long gone without trace. I wish that blogging is less complicated for some people. you don’t really have to think perfect flatlay picture and keep on updating your Instagram. You don’t have to follow and unfollow people just to get people attention.

    “Just focus on your blog and think social media is a median to share the main things.”

    Happy NEW YEAR!

    Thank you for always keep coming back to my little blog. Looking back to where I started this blog last year. I am really thankful to brands/business who give me a chance to work for their campaign. It was really a great experience to work with awesome people. Being a blogger is really hard, there is time that I really want to give up. Bumped into people who doesn’t really appreciate what blogger are doing is a sour experience. For people who work as fulltime blogger, that probably effect them even more but, experience is always be the best teacher. I just wish that the community are more transparent on what they deliver to readers, especially for those who write about review.

    NEXT ON – I wish to say ‘THANK YOU”, without you reading this blog, I don’t think that I wanted to move forward and keep on blogging. On 2018, I wish to tell you that

     

    “BE THE THUNDERSTROM OF YOUR LIFE”

    I started this blog last year without help and support from friends nor family. They think that blogging is worthless job and I am not going to be anything but ordinary. Since, this type of activity is worthless for people that set their mind on earning money, and become popular.

    “I like writing even thou my English grammar is bad, and I love beauty and I love taking picture”

    and that’s thought let me move forward, because I know that I do the things that I have passion on it. Little by little, my effort is visible to others on the community, but I even more happier when I see there is new readers, it make me smile the whole day.

    I view myself as a little girl finding a perfect pink balloon in the pool of balloon. “This is perfect. I like it!”. If we do what we passionate about, it’s really worth it! without thinking of any negative thought about it, such as money (“how much I can earn or time I waste”)

     

     

    To end this article, I just wanna say to you “chase what you desire the most in this life, chase your passion. Make it come true and ignore what others have to say about your passion. They don’t have the right to say about the things that you love to do, but giving their support and compliment when you achieve something, so you won’t regret and reminisce it, when you grow old.

     

    “BE HAPPY OF YOURSELF, YOUR LIFE AND YOUR DREAM. LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL AND WORTH IT”
