Being a man of a certain age I like to see others ‘swimming in the water’ before I jump in. I am a pretty ‘late adopter’, I admit it.
Out of curiosity I joined Facebook in 2008, but it wasn’t until the Fall of 2013 that I began to really focus my efforts and see what greater participation in the socali media landscape might bring.
Today I have:
Over 20,000 ‘LIKE’s‘ on Facebook,
Over 14,000 images pinned on Pinterest
Over 4,000 connections on LinkedIn
And almost 10,000 visitors to my blog ‘In Pursuit of Design Alchemy’
and in the last 18 months had almost 11,000 visitors to GISSLER.com
What has come of all this connectivity?
In a follow-up to yesterday’s post, I want to share a bit about 15 of the distinctive and inspirational people I have met on-line (and some in person) who have helped to shaped my on-line life, and enriched my experiences on social media. I’ve included links to their Facebook profiles so you can follow them as well…
What do you want to be when you grow up?
At age 13, while in school in a very comfortable suburban midwestern community, my class was given an assignment on careers. I researched interior design; more specifically the kind of education that was required to work in that profession, and what the career choice might mean.
At the projects completion I declared to my teacher and peers that I wanted to be an interior designer!
