We Are Not Alone

WE ARE NOT ALONE

I’ve just joined WANA tribe, after having read a book entitled: “Rise of the Machines: Human Authors in a Digital World” by Kristen Lamb.

Kristen says in explaining the concept of WANA tribe:

WANA stands for We Are Not Alone, and began as the title of my #1 best-selling social media book. I named the book, We Are Not Alone—The Writers’ Guide to Social Media, because I saw that social media was a game-changer for creative professionals, if only they could let loose of fear and understand that we don’t have to change our personalities to be successful. Social media isn’t about spamming people for free on ten different sites; it is about community and connection.

WANA Tribe is a place where creative people can be themselves and to connect with other artists. Form critique groups, discussions, post your art, network, or just sit back and be inspired. No matter where you turn on WANA Tribe you will find passion and imagination and people who understand you. Why? Because they are just like you.

We Are Not Alone!

See Kristen’s great editing post, reblogged on my site here at:  https://write4publish.com/2016/05/23/six-ways-to-self-edit-polish-your-prose/  to show that she’s not just a pretty technocrat head!

 

This has helped me understand and be able to use  social media a lot better. We writers are often technically challenged, so thanks to Kristen.

Trying to set up a self-hosted website nearly made me consider giving up entirely, but I’m proud to say I didn’t, and I achieved my goal, after a lot of time spent asking for help. I’m still struggling with being able to use Hootsuite, but am determined to get there.
Will my next goal be to learn coding? Who knows?
By the way, there are a lot of great helpers out there on the wide world web, if you are only willing to take the time to learn and to ask for help. I found great helpers on my hosting site, BlueHost— particularly kind and patient with me, and the man who developed the business theme I chose (Generate Press) found nothing too much bother, and even came on board my site to help me with some issues I couldn’t solve.
It was a little cold out there for me on the www, which is why I came back to the community at WordPress.com. So I’ve now got one foot in both worlds. Still trying to synthesise the two sites, but getting there…
Thanks for bearing with me everyone, especially wordpress helpers!
