Real Talk for online writers networking
Writers responsibility to be real with what they write
Being a writer is a powerful thing, whether you choose to do it online, offline or even as a person who chooses to write your words into journals. Writing and discovering what makes you tick as a writer is essential in learning to fully express in words that of your truest passions, emotions, life recollections, moments of struggle, celebrations, goals and aspirations etc..
New mental channels may begin to open up, in such a way that your mind can create pathways for words to flow. This is where your true writers voice will come in, and when it has the greatest potential to streamline such things as the hate emotion, or that of loves fibrous like attractive, and repulsive vibes, joy, signs of pain, and so many other great life themes that all tend to emerge out of our mental telekinetic pathways.
The mind is the key to access such pure energy of thought, and once carefully triggered can stir up a storm, and flurry of words in its connection as well as congruence that will become quite astonishing to say the least, and shortly thereafter once the words have done hit the page. It then becomes our responsibility to place into action, that of great relevance, truth for researched materials, intense detailing for all intents and purposes, and the best creative works for fictional stories, poems, epic tales and many more subjects to be unleashed.
There's loads more subjective reasons behind the responsive motives a writer has today, but keep in mind that we all are in this online thing together as a professional networking community, and for many of us its for the long haul, so please try to be responsible to one another, as fellow writers of good sportsman like conduct & comrade.
Stiff competitors are actual words themselves to fight
Being an online writer today is super competitive, and mainly because of the undeniable fact, that in order for your digital works to get anywhere you must realize, that there are machines that will be accepting such information, and these machines are highly discriminant as to what relevance such info that filters through their wired backbones, and digital skeletal systems.
These machines are controlled by such places known as data centers, in which are being managed and run by humans, even though such information is generally screened by a virtual robot (Program) of sorts, it doesn't mean that such information, will not and cannot fall into the hands of human scrutiny, and when such a thing occurs then and only then will it become a matter of grave importance.
Examples of these automated programs are Google's web crawler bot's (Panda Update), and Hubpages has bot's as well that detect everything we do, social networks have bot's as well that detect good flow of conduct as well as electronic spam type of flow, so be aware of your conduct everywhere today, you may be deemed or marked as a spammer, or someone who is questionable if you don't know how to balance out your sharing, and promotional activities.
All of our articles pass through these Google Data Centers for intense inspection, before landing on search engines to be indexed
There's nothing like good Drama!
How the online drama begins
Other then that moment it all equates to digits, numbers flying around from off of the wireless connections, a great deal of wired connections, and so on and so fourth.
For an online writer to be able to breach the boundaries of becoming known in that of the real world, it is almost impossible, but it has been done, mainly because the way the Internet is set up, is once a online profile achieves such a height of digital recognition (higher stats viewable by others as well = competition in their eyes potentially), well from that point forwards the web will send much more action to such a location, unless if the bots are re-instructed to scan these locations for potential violations, illegal activities, and or anomalies that exist (False intentions either legal or illegal).
Billions of online users are simultaneously communicating, making efforts to earn income revenue streams (On Facebook, Google+, Stumbleupon, Digg etc..), some people just trying to get by day to day online, and maybe little ole Amy who's been trying to find a date for years (A figurative character) or probably some dude named Tom or Bob, all looking for their soul mates probably. More then likely they're all in the wrong kind of networking portal to do such things as well, unless its Facebook, maybe some lousy dating site, or a malicious spammers network set out to trick people into believing that spamming people is OK to do.
For the most part people should learn that this is just a tool to make human contact, when we are on social messaging on these networking platforms, and its important to try to be as real as possible on them, even if it means to UN-friend someone on it, or block their annoying communications if at all necessary.
Them days of old are lone gone
Being real is tough and making real friends is tougher
Being a online writer is probably one of the most competitive arena's to choose as a career choice today, plus for the other undeniable fact that there are literally billions of websites, that all have been in a constant state of competition with one another, and at all times, which is also the reason why web page ranking is there in the first place. (Link provided is to Facts about Google and Competition.)
So you definitely need to be real with people in order to make true friends who can help support your writing efforts online, and you can help support theirs as well.
However, this doesn't mean that you go running around digitally from network to network, expecting people to share your content all the time, just because you surfaced upon theirs first somehow, and then shared it for them. You still need to try to get to know them over time somehow, communicate to them from time to time, and you just never know what potential true friends you just might earn and how real they may turn out to be towards you. (My good friend Bill Holland shows his testimony to this very truth i an article titled "The Brotherhood of Man: Finding Commonalities".)
Social networking isn't real, there's far to much drama involved, to much cut throat action and to many fake friends
Some of us write like angels, and others its pretty tough to tell
The Internet is not to be mistaken for that of real life, and not in any way shape or form, but these factors of having social elements involved today, have surely made things even more competitive (Even if a person doesn't admit to it), which makes things ever so difficult for the individual who's going at it all alone.
This is also due to the very fact that we're no longer only dealing with digits versus web stats, and data points versus search results, and the old Internet with pop up and all is no more, there is a sharing element in place on all social networking platforms, that when done correctly amongst good caring community of loving people, can lead your content being shared to set sail into online super success (Also known as reaching Viral status), but hate, favoritism and dis-contention will smother any chances of such a thing ever developing.
So also choose your friends wisely, those who start trouble are the ones who will steer any group, network of friends, and all into oblivion and no matter how huge a network, website or what have you.
We're currently dealing with a social evolution and revolution of epic digital proportions, also having billions of differing personalities of vastly differing magnitudes that are converging on a daily basis behind these computer screens.
This requires a newer kind of approach to things, a wiser decision making skill when it comes to networking on all social and professional levels. Making effective communications that if done properly today is a must, kind integrity and honesty can make a world of a difference for us all while we engage in such communicative efforts for each other.
Please feel free to leave a comment, being real counts even for those as well. I hope you enjoyed this article, and there's plenty more like it to come.
