The Q&A in textual content format
How do you differentiate between optimistic criticism & undesirable recommendation?
“Criticism” has two definitions : “the expression of disapproval of somebody or one thing on the premise of perceived faults or errors” & “the evaluation and judgement of the deserves and faults of a literary or creative work”.
The previous is destructive & unhelpful. The latter might be useful in figuring out weaknesses.
Hardly ever will you discover somebody critiquing you / your work except they themselves are invested in you, your work, your progress or the topic / business. Should you’ve paid them for his or her recommendation, if their earlier recommendation has been useful, if they’re recognized to you, if they’ve been via the identical issues that you’re going via, then think about their recommendation with a pinch of salt.
If it’s an web stranger, ignore them totally.

Are you able to share one thing about Twitter, as a social media platform?
Like some other platform, it’s nice if we all know find out how to put it to make use of. I see it as extra geared in direction of sharing experience / positioning your self as an professional. Sharing information about you / your model. Getting e-newsletter subscribers (once more, depending on subject material / business). Participating in longer textual content discussions, that are seen publicly. Reaching out to different specialists in your business & partaking with them. I haven’t bought something through Twitter however I’ve had individuals go to my weblog, obtain desktop wallpapers & recognize my pictures over time. Relying on a model’s audience, if it consists of younger individuals, these will not often be discovered on Twitter.
Your Twitter feed might be extremely custom-made, which isn’t potential on some other social media platform. Don’t wish to see something associated to “Trump”? You’ll be able to mute the phrase “Trump” & even when somebody you understand tweets about him, you gained’t see it. You desire a chronological feed? You bought it.
Will an Instagram weblog work in addition to a WordPress weblog?
Instagram just isn’t a running a blog platform. It’s a social networking service / app. An Instagram web page just isn’t a weblog. Writing Instagram captions just isn’t “running a blog”.
Running a blog is a a lot bigger exercise than merely posting on Instagram. You probably have an Instagram web page, technically, you don’t personal it – you could have little or no management over it. You probably have your personal web site / weblog, you personal all of what you produce and publish.
It’s all the time higher to have a web site & weblog after which, presence on a handful of main social media networks.

What’s #NAINAMAMA? : “Naina’s Monday Ask Me Something”.
Having used the “Ask Me Something” questions field on Instagram Tales over the previous couple of years, I’ve thought-about doing it in a extra structured method and I’ve noticed that numerous the questions are repeated. The repetitiveness is comprehensible due to the character of Instagram. Tales are gone after 24 hours and never everybody will get to see them. This isn’t solely a waste of my time, but additionally a lack of data that somebody would possibly discover helpful. I’ve, certainly, thought-about saving these tales as “Story Highlights” on my Instagram profile however I don’t like how they eat up invaluable actual property. Somebody visiting my Instagram profile for the primary time, sees my profile photograph, my statistics, my bio after which a complete row of Story Highlights and THEN they get to the actual purpose they’re more likely to interact with me : my work. With out the Story Highlights, they will see six posts and 1/fifth of one other three. With the Story Highlights they will solely see the primary three posts of their entirety, which, to me, is unacceptable.
Each Monday, I’ll put up the Q&A field on my Instagram Tales and try to reply about 5-10 questions. I can even doc these questions on my weblog, just like at the moment’s weblog publish.
