I enjoyed the class readings this week about creating a strong online presence, or brand. Turns out, my professional online presence doesn’t hold much “Klout”, with a measly score of 18. I hope to improve upon that in the upcoming weeks as I more fully delve into the ever burgeoning world of social media and how I can use it professionally and not just for fun.
I plan to create a Klout account for my personal online profiles just out of curiosity for my score; I have a decent number of blog followers on my personal blog so I suppose we’ll see! I wasn’t surprised to see former colleagues of mine in my “Klout Network” when being asked who my influences were; an old friend of mine from undergrad has got a score of 50. Well, then again, it is Avi…
As I don’t think that I’ll be using this blog past the duration of this course, I’m pretty happy with the look at feel of it as it stands. My about.me page, however, definitely needed some tweaking. I started out with this:
Version 1.0 of my about.me page basically consisted of a clip of information from my resume, my standard bio photo, and a background picture of a scene that I took at White Clay Creek State Park.
And now….Version 1.1:
Completely redesigned and more better! Content has been updated for a more personal feel, and I really tried to “sell myself” in a digital snapshot. I like this version a whole lot better, as I think it is a more accessible page than the prior one (and I think I’ll get a little more traffic as a result.)
