WHO IS THE SOCIAL MEDIA VIRGIN?
I am Jackie, (Jacquelynn on a Sunday or when I am in trouble) born in the swinging sixties and living my teenage years through the fabulous 80’s I fell into a very unsexy office job where I have remained ever since. My entire life I have always contemplated what I really wanted to be when I grow up. And, at the age of 53 I think I am about ready to make that decision.
I am ready to emerge; chrysalis like. So here comes The Social Media Virgin.
HOW DID THE SOCIAL EXPERIMENT COME ABOUT?
I have always, and I mean ALWAYS, resisted the urge to become involved in any social media and prefer the anonymity of ‘living off the grid’. Having recently read several articles about the increasing trend of blogging, vlogging, tweeting, pinning and instagramming and the ability to generate a healthy income from such activities, when I woke up one morning a couple of weeks ago I thought I would undertake my own social experiment.
Is it really that easy that anyone can do it and make some money from it? If the millennials can do it, can Generation X or the Baby Boomers?
WHY THE SOCIAL MEDIA VIRGIN?
It really is an apt description for my venture, the fact it took the 7 minute car journey to work to come up with it shouldn’t be held against me, if it had taken 2 weeks I don’t think I could have done any better. Decision taken and one tick for the check list.
WHAT CAN WE EXPECT TO SEE?
Having initially set out to create a website dedicated to growing my social media and making money from home, I found this topic difficult with very little experience and naturally came to write about travel and food and drink. Two of my big loves.
