Today is Day 5 of #HAWMC (WEGO’s Health Activist Writers Monthly Challenge). The prompt today is:
Are you all about 180 characters or less? Do you enjoy shooting the perfect photo? Or perhaps love sharing posts on Facebook.What’s your favorite platform to get your voice heard and why?
Okay, I’m going to admit this is going to be a very short post for me. My favorite platform to get my voice heard is my blog. Here I can write it in 180 characters, but I don’t have to. I can use as many characters as I like. I can add a photo if I want, but I don’t have to. I’m free to share my opinions along with facts. Of course, I always tell if it is my opinion and not a fact. (that doesn’t mean my opinions aren’t fact, often they are…so there.) My blog is my preferred method to reach people.
I do have a Facebook Page that is relatively new. I post a few more things on my Facebook Page than I do on my blog, but they aren’t detailed. I’m starting to learn more about Twitter, but I admit I get a little lost on there. I do attend some patient advocate chats on Twitter, they are very informative and supportive. So you may see me on Twitter more often. 🙂
I don’t think I’ll ever be on Instagram or any place where I’m supposed to post photos, I’m simply not comfortable snapping photos all the time, especially of me. And I must admit…. hubby would make fun of me.
It’s not all about what I post on my blog or Facebook Page and Twitter accounts, it’s also about the places I visit. The blogs I support, the Facebook Pages I Like, the Facebook Groups I Follow, the Twitter accounts I follow…these are the places I show my support. These are some of the places that hear my voice. Look in your comment section, you just might see me there.
