When I started out on twitter as an early adopter this is how I looked in May of 2007, soon after twitter started in April of 2007. For a couple of months I bantered around with it, but soon got tired because you could only have about 14 characters and all people did was say, “I just walked my dog”. “He did #2 and Pooped”. Wow those were the early days of twitter.
But now 4 years later I’ve got twitter, buffer, bit.ly, Gmail, Google Docs, Google+, Google Hang Out, Skype,, HootSuite, Pandora, Livestream, Ustream, Empire Avenue, Picasa, facebook, Google Chat, Qik, XeeMe etc, etc, you get the idea. I have never worked so hard in my life keeping up with all the social media apps. You see not only am I trying to keep up with all the influence on the apps, but I’m trying to use social media to get corporations to sponsor our youth Jerk and Hip Hop streaming web media content that reaches out to the youth.
Now I can’t really figure what the issue is putting in 12 hr days, 6-7 days a week. Is it because we have The World famous Rangers down with us? The New Black Beatles, The New Jackson 5? Is it because as the company founder I am an African American? Are we too far out ahead of what contemporary corporations envision is the path for future music? I hope the latter is the answer.
So do we do? Just keep doing what we do and stop exerting an inordinate amount of work in going out after getting people to know we’re promoting The Rangers and Young Sam and just create a body of work and let them come to us to join in the New Jerk Lifestyle!
