How Does This Sound?

I applied for a job as a Social Media Assistant for a women’s site in the US.

I can bring experience, creative ideas, ingenuity and pretty great spelling to the New Women’s Guide.

I’ve been working with social media since before it had a name. My own sites have been through many learning lessons, trial and error, with me. I’ve found what works, what does not and what might be worth a try. I enjoy trying something new, I’m often an early adopter for new sites and technology. When I find something that really works I’m loyal to it and glad to pass it along and help a good site grow. The best thing about doing it yourself is making all the mistakes first hand and then learning from them. I began writing online in 1998, I’ve explored, made those mistakes, had a great time doing it all and I learned a lot!

I’m not a social butterfly, using social media just to fill up space or as a secondary RSS feed for blog posts. I’d rather contribute something real, make a difference in someone’s day or at least not seem boring or trivial. My posts are social and have something to say whether I’m sharing an idea, a link to a site or exchanging information and building a community. It’s too easy to feel you are drowning in social media with it’s SEO advice, reposted links and commercialism. While I do use social media to post my own links I also make a point of giving something real of myself and my experience.
