And then there was 6!



I never thought in my life that blogging would be something that I would get into; for several reasons of course. I mean, growing up without social media and computers was a great thing, but as I age, now in my 30’s, I see the great advantages it can have; along with the disadvantages that I assume many of you guys can agree with. But, the world is literally at your finger tips of anything you want to know and I get amazed at how much time is wasted by our youth, and older generation, looking up and filling their brains with useless knowledge or searching things that is never going to improve their lives for the better, or even searching for things that could help improve their own communities. I get it though because with the amount of things that media throws in our face to keep us distracted it is hard; I am just as guilty, but…

I’m getting a little off topic here. So, blogging, it has literally turned into a hobby that I’m looking forward to each and every day. Even if it is just a post about how my day was…it is a reward feeling, knowing that someone is going to read what I’m thinking, what I am writing, and maybe just my words can make their day better, or maybe I can say something motivating that will give them, you, that extra boost.

I woke up and laughed today because my smartphone went off and it said, congratulations, you now have a total of 6 followers; and to be honest, I got instantly excited; and of course, I am going to tell you why…calm down! LOL.

You see when I started Raw Orange I had an idea in my head about how smooth it could work, if I just stuck with it and gave it 100%, but a few days after I started publishing videos of Raw Orange and the links, I was noticing that I wasn’t getting any views or subscribers and to be honest, it was frustrating because, in my mind, I was like wait…I figure how many people would be looking at my post and would want to help me build a channel that as meant for pure positivity and information. That’s when I realized, wait…hold on, this is a new system and with ANYTHING new, comes time and patience to learn the skill. So, that is what I did…I started researching other bloggers and their post and I started to get fascinated with their articles and what was on their mind and then I did something un selfish…I started following people and then came the respect t set aside my own ambition for growing my channel and I focused my energy on helping other people grow their channel and that is when something happened.

I started commented on peoples post and I started giving my opinions on topics that they felt important and then I started getting feedback and shortly after that, I started to notice…wait…people are starting to subscribe to my blogs, my channel, A shear respect thing and a great example of how the power of networking really works and can be successful.

You see I only have 6 followers, but that is not a bad thing, but a great thing because I am almost at 10 followers and if I speak my mind honestly and can grab people’s attention then I know that 10 will surely turn into 20,40,60 and so on…you see I was excited this morning because this was a sheer example of us as humans. I wanted something, but when I started it, I started it with a mind of selfishness, me, me, me and of course, me..there was not thinking about others; not saying their ideas, your ideas were unimportant, or less, but I wanted to focus on my project, and that is when the lesson hit me. Put others first and only then will you succeed. And of course, the other lesson that I had learned was just the general purpose of learning something new that, not only was I used to not having, but also is something that typically frustrates me; electronics.

I told myself though, no, it is new and you are going to be patient and learn this and, while yes, I have not mastered the skill, of even this website…I am learning and even the small hurdles, I am smiling in the process. To all of you that sees the valuable lesson in this short blog of how putting others first can improve your own success, thank you!

I am now going to put my kids on the school bus and take my butt back to bed! Talk to you later cyber family! And, to add to that cyber family bit, it is even greater because it’s not just people from where I come from, but people from all over the world and traveling is something that I always had been fascinated with and has always been a personal goal of mine; so in a way; meeting new people through here and hearing their stories is, in a way, filling that dream!Networking
