Hej and Hi…
Last year I created a blog (very much like this one) with grandiose ideas of sharing my expat life with you. Then I just had my baby girl and life got a wee bit overwhelming. I completely canned the idea of blogging about my life, my struggles as an expat mom living in uncharted waters. I got frustrated.
“Who am I to write? To ‘blog’ I know nothing!”
And so I completely gave up the idea, deleted all evidence of said website and focused on my babies and finding a ‘real job’ in Denmark.
But the ‘idea’ of blogging and writing lingering on. Since the job hunting was pretty much myself applying all day and everyday only to get almost daily rejections (but that’s another post entirely). Job hunting was leaving a bad taste in my mouth.
So I started to shift my focus. Since social media was the only outlet to the outside world (because I lived in rural Denmark), I was spending more time on Instagram and Facebook. I was posting photos to my photography Insta site: JenJulphoto (shameless plug:) Posting to my personal Instagram (mykindofjen) and Facebook sites became necessary to keep my family back home up-to-date on our life. Even my dog, Innoko has his own Insta: InnokotheHusky.
It became fun and thats when social media marketing became a new endeavor.
So to make a long story short, what the hell am I doing back here? I recreated a website, writing my little heart out and showing up, telling stories and documenting my most ‘unconventional life.’
First of all, why NOT?!?
Last year I got so bogged down with all the little things. We had moved yet again, kids, step-kids, Danish language classes, husband (my music man) is away ‘gigging’ a lot and I’m left to wade through the murky waters of living in another country alone. I got so stressed with it all that I hoped and PRAYED that I got a job outside of the house.
But did that happen?
I’m still here sitting with my trusty laptop with 30 tabs open on blogging, social media marketing/management, mailboxes and researching galore.
Which leads me to how I got here. I realized that not a lot of people (that I know) actually KNOW about social media marketing and management.
I think it has a lot to do with content. There is a LOT of information out there and it does change daily. You have to keep ‘on trend’ with the algorithms, content you are providing and stay consistent ON TOP of IT ALL, ALL THE TIME.
Did I lose you?
I think I almost heard a snooze. (or maybe a snort…ha!)
I’m sorry if this is not your cup-O-tea but that’s the beauty of it…..this STUFF INTERESTS ME!
Why not learn about it and teach others along the way?!?
So here I go…
I am going to document my journey with Social Media Marketing, throw in some wit and wisdom of a gal who has an actual advanced degree and just blog about life in Denmark.
The struggle is definitely real.
Follow me on my journey… who knows, you might actually like me after a while;)
