Hello Readers!

When I started this Just {BE} blog about a year ago, I wanted it to be a “one stop shop”. I wanted to write about anything I love and passionate about….anything goes, no rules, no limits.

At first thought, it was a good idea. I can just write about anything in one spot. I don’t like to be restricted with anything I do. But after a while, being around different things, seeing and hearing different perspectives, it made more sense to separate things.

When I had my first-ever blog about 6 years ago, I treated that more like an online journal. Guess what?! That’s how blogs used to be back then. Without the help of social media or Triberr or anything that helps drive traffic to your site, your blogs don’t really have a good chance of being read.

But fast forward to today, I created JW Social Media since my networks are getting more broad, I need to have a blog that reaches different audience. I don’t want to bother my social media network about a food recipe, or a local restaurant or wine review and vice-versa.

So yes, as much as defied what I read a year ago, about a blog needing to have more focus, I am now admitting a year later, that a blog should have some type of direction. On that note, I’m revamping my site and for starters, I’m separating out any posts I have about social media and putting them on my JW Social Media website. I’m working on a foodie blog too, but maybe in a few months. I’ll keep you posted.

So, please make sure to visit me at my new site, OK? I’m starting fresh there and I need some comments. Your pictures will show up in my “Top Commenters” spot, I promise! 😉

Be well!

My blog about Social Media

Just Google It!

How often do you hear someone say or you’ve found yourself say, “just google it”!?  If you’re like me, the answer would be umpteenth times!

But that’s the truth!

If you want to learn something you can find it on the internet.  It’s right there, right at your fingertips!  You just have to know what to type in your google search box.  Thus the verb, “google it”, as in….”research it on the internet!”

Over the weekend, our garage door opener broke and rather than hiring someone to get it fixed, my husband learned about it from YouTube.  There were several videos available with  step by step instructions on how to get it fixed.  But this video,  Garage Door Spring Repair, was the one he found to be most helpful.  So with an $80 purchase from Menard’s plus an hour of his time, the garage door is fixed!  I realize that hiring someone to fix it would have probably cost less, but, he learned something new.  And knowledge is sexy!  😉

Speaking of which, I also want to learn something new….and that is, how to create a website through WordPress.  I have dabbled on web creation in the past.  But something just out of the box with very minimal tweaking like from iWeb.  Take a look at this Wonderful Lashes website I created myself.  It was very easy to do.  So if you have a Mac, this is something you can easily create.

So going back to WordPress.  WordPress is great because they have several themes and lots of beautiful designs to choose from.  Two of the themes I’m currently looking into are Thesis and Genesis.  Doing some research right now so I can write about my journey and will keep you posted.

And like I said, you can pretty much learn how to do everything….just google it!

So how about you?  Do you google?  When was the last time you googled?  And what did you google?  I want to hear your experience with google!  Do tell…

TTFN!
