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 someone or something on the basis of perceived faults or mistakes” & “the analysis and judgement of the merits and faults of a literary or artistic work”.
The former is damaging & unhelpful. The latter will be useful in figuring out weaknesses.
Rarely will you discover somebody critiquing you / your work except they themselves are invested in you, your work, your progress or the topic / trade. If 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 by way of the identical issues that you’re going by way of, then take into account their recommendation with a pinch of salt.
If it’s an web stranger, ignore them completely.

I may do higher on this division. For now, I’m pressured to contemplate the likelihood that my pictures profession may by no means recuperate from COVID19, so I’ve extra time to give attention to my hand-painted brooches & my workshops.

Can you share one thing about Twitter, as a social media platform?
Like another platform, it’s nice if we all know tips on how to put it to make use of. I see it as extra geared in the direction of sharing experience / positioning your self as an skilled. Sharing news about you / your model. Getting publication subscribers (once more, depending on subject material / trade). Engaging in longer textual content discussions, that are seen publicly. Reaching out to different consultants in your trade & participating with them. I haven’t offered something by way of Twitter however I’ve had individuals go to my weblog, obtain desktop wallpapers & respect my pictures through the years. Depending on a model’s audience, if it consists of younger individuals, these will hardly ever be discovered on Twitter.
Your Twitter feed will be extremely personalized, which isn’t potential on another social media platform. Don’t wish to see something associated to “Trump”? You can mute the phrase “Trump” & even when somebody you recognize tweets about him, you received’t see it. You desire a chronological feed? You received it.
Will an Instagram weblog work in addition to a WordPress weblog?
Instagram is just not a running a blog platform. It is a social networking service / app. An Instagram web page is just not a weblog. Writing Instagram captions is just not “blogging”.
Blogging is a a lot bigger exercise than merely posting on Instagram. If you’ve got an Instagram web page, technically, you don’t personal it – you’ve got little or no management over it. If you’ve got your individual website / weblog, you personal all of what you produce and publish.
It is at all times higher to have a website & weblog after which, presence on a handful of main social media networks.

Me, on Instagram.
What is #NAINAMAMA? : “Naina’s Monday Ask Me Anything”.
Having used the “Ask Me Anything” questions field on Instagram Stories over the previous few years, I’ve thought-about doing it in a extra structured means and I’ve noticed that quite a lot of the questions are repeated. The repetitiveness is comprehensible due to the character of Instagram. Stories are gone after 24 hours and never everybody will get to see them. This is just not solely a waste of my time, but additionally a lack of data that somebody may 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 useful actual property. Someone visiting my Instagram profile for the primary time, sees my profile photograph, my statistics, my bio after which a whole row of Story Highlights and THEN they get to the true purpose they’re more likely to interact with me : my work. Without the Story Highlights, they’ll see six posts and 1/fifth of one other three. With the Story Highlights they’ll solely see the primary three posts of their entirety, which, to me, is unacceptable.
Every Monday, I’ll put up the Q&A field on my Instagram Stories and try to reply about 5-10 questions. I will even doc these questions on my weblog, just like right now’s weblog publish.
