Kiss + Tell: Kiss Your Excuses Goodbye - I'll Tell You How
by Christina Waschko
You probably heard about the business owner / entrepreneur who wrote a book and established him/herself as an expert in his or her field? If the thought of writing a book scares you read on.
Your book doesn’t need to be big, long or thick. Here is a book review for #Untrending, A Field Guide To Social Media That Matters.
This book is ‘tiny’, so please read on!
I just finished #Untrending A Field Guide To Social Media That Matters by Vicki McLeod.
#Untrending is “a tiny book’. Vicki herself describes it as whimsical. Hers is a wonderful example of “Kiss your Excuses Goodbye’ and do it.
It’s refreshing to read.
It’s short. It’s written from the heart.
It’s filled with heartfelt stories and beautiful hand drawings for us to colour!
Vicki has written about a topic she loves and cares about, social media that matters.
Her readers (I assume) are wary social media consumers. People like you and me. Individuals who know about the ridiculousness of getting sapped into watching singing, piano playing cats. Or clicking on yet another link that promises to share the most embarrassing celebrity moments-ever!
Deep inside our hearts we know we’re spending way too much time on our mobile devices. Or more importantly, checking our social media feeds. You and I have our own reasons why doing so. The fear of being left out, on missing out (FOMO) on the next best trend, is one of them.
So how exactly can we all put heart and soul into our social media engagements so they matter?
Surprisingly, it’s very simple and easy to do. Vicki tells us how.
#Untrending is easy on the brain:
As a matter of fact I know writing a book has been on Vicki’s bucket list for a very long time. I so love that she kissed one of her biggest excuses goodbye, lack of time. Somehow she managed to take chunks of time out of her very busy and successful coaching practice to write- because creating #Untrending was important to her!
#Untrending is a beautiful example of ‘it doesn’t need to be long and elaborate to get your message across.’
If the story inside of you is shouting loud and clear write me, write me, follow Vicki’s example and start by creating a tiny book (something different will follow for sure).
Get off social media right now and start typing!
Or better, read #Untrending first, get off your social media platforms and then write your tiny book!
