Thoughts out Loud

For the second half of this experiment I will be working to refine a process for my social media efforts. I’ll be investigating tools to make my tracking simpler, services to assist with my publishing,  and establishing a calendar.

I will also expand and then refine a list of resources to help support my current accounts. The biggest deficit so far was a lack of portfolio images. Today I began refining a Flikr account to load new images and I also updated my current site.

I redid my Twitter background. Being in design and branding I really saw my old one as inconsistent. I used the same bar formula across the top that I use in both my site and this blog. Since the messaging is different there and I use it to both find and send out resources I decided a looser approach was needed. I have my necessary information now included and how to contact me to hire me, but I also decided to include part on my planning processes in the presentation. Anyone can look at the brainstorming mind -map and see the various interests I have and get a feel for how I work. I like both the feel of structure on the left combined with the loose creativity on the right.

On the list for tomorrow, guest blogging…
