Weekly Wrap-up: Marketing, scammers and drawing

Hello everyone, hope you all had a good week? I can not believe that Autumn is just a week away? Next thing we know it will be Christmas. Are you panicking yet?

I have been doing a lot of research on marketing these days. Currently reading # Influencers by Brittany Hennessy. It is a pretty fascinating book, so far I realized I made a few mistakes, but thanks to Brittany, I changed them, and I am not even half way done with the book. I highly recommend it. Will post my review soon.

I am somehow having a hard time finding ways of getting people engaged on my blog and social media. So, I am trying to learn about Pinterest. Hoping to be a Pinterest Virtual Assistant. I hear they make good money and I do not have to write a lot, since I seem to suck at it. Still reading grammar books too.

Oh, one thing I want to share with you, this happened to me today. Someone said they wanted to collaborate with me, I thought they wanted to hire me. Turns out they just wanted me to buy something from their store, and then share it on my Instagram. So, not only do they want free advertising, they wanted me to buy the item?! Yes, they did want to give me a small discount. Folks, please know this is not acceptable. You should never have to buy anything to get a job as an influencer. They are supposed to pay you, not the other way around. I blocked them. Please please please be careful, and never let anyone bully you into buying something, they tried to do that with me. So, I just want to make sure to spread the word that you should be careful with scammers. This is a sad world we live in now.

I am also teaching myself how to draw and paint again. It has been many years. My best friend gave me a stylus pen, and now I am learning how to use that as well. Maybe, I can do graphic novels and comics someday? Here is one of my first examples I did with my stylus pen.

That is supposed to be Seth Macfarlane….my chin needs work. lol

Here is his drawing that I was trying to copy from…He makes drawing look easy…sigh

So that is what I have been doing all week. Also, looking for work. Apparently, job hunting is a full time job, no one tells you that or thinks that, until they have to do it.

How about you, are you learning any new hobbies since the lockdown? How do you keep busy?

Have a great week and please stay safe!

Peace and Luv, Renee
