Is it just me or did this course fly by? I can’t believe this is my final blog for Intro to Social Media. I’ve known for awhile now that I want a career in the social media field, but this class has made me much more excited for it. I’ve learned so much over the span of two months, and I can’t wait to take the other courses.
I don’t know about you guys, but that personal branding assignment was very difficult for me. I had never really given too much thought about who I was, and what I had to offer. That assignment really opened my eyes, and taught me a lot about myself. I feel much more confident about my skills and passions. It has inspired me to want to utilize my social media platforms more effectively.
Until this course I had never blogged before. Well, that’s kind of a lie. I do have a Tumblr account, but I only post/re-blog pictures. I’ve been enjoying writing about different topics and things i’m passionate about. I think i’m starting to find my own voice, and I’ve been strongly considering starting my own blog.
The case study assignment really got me excited to work in the social media field. I did a lot of research on different brands and campaigns and really took the question “what would I do differently” seriously. It might sound cheesy, but I got really excited when I started thinking about what I would change, or how I think a company could improve their efforts. The material we learned over the past couple of months opened my eyes to all the positive and negative ways to approach social media from a business standpoint. It’s interesting to see all the ways that companies can succeed and fail on social media. I feel like I’ve learned so much already, but i’m excited to continue learning, and to one day apply what I know to my career.
