The Q&A in textual content format
How do you differentiate between constructive criticism & undesirable recommendation?
“Criticism” has two definitions : “the expression of disapproval of somebody or one thing on the idea of perceived faults or errors” & “the evaluation and judgement of the deserves and faults of a literary or inventive work”.
The previous is unfavourable & unhelpful. The latter may be useful in figuring out weaknesses.
Not often will you discover somebody critiquing you / your work except they themselves are invested in you, your work, your development or the topic / business. When you’ve paid them for his or her recommendation, if their earlier recommendation has been useful, if they’re recognized to you, if they’ve been by way of the identical issues that you’re going by way of, then contemplate their recommendation with a pinch of salt.
If it’s an web stranger, ignore them fully.

How do you focus between your totally different ventures?
I might do higher on this division. For now, I’m compelled to think about the chance that my images profession may by no means get well from COVID19, so I’ve extra time to concentrate on my hand-painted brooches & my workshops.
Easy equation : what number of workshops (what number of contributors / topics, with out diluting my model) ought to I do in a yr in order that I can earn sufficient to cowl my Value Of Doing Enterprise (CODB). Similar for Brooches : what number of do I’ve to promote in a yr? After which work backwards & make investments time accordingly. Works the identical for each product / service / model.
Are you able to share one thing about Twitter, as a social media platform?
Like every other platform, it’s nice if we all know methods to put it to make use of. I see it as extra geared in direction of sharing experience / positioning your self as an professional. Sharing information about you / your model. Getting e-newsletter subscribers (once more, depending on subject material / business). Participating in longer textual content discussions, that are seen publicly. Reaching out to different specialists in your business & participating with them. I haven’t bought something by way of Twitter however I’ve had folks go to my weblog, obtain desktop wallpapers & admire my images over time. Relying on a model’s audience, if it consists of younger folks, these will not often be discovered on Twitter.
Your Twitter feed may be extremely personalized, which isn’t attainable on every other social media platform. Don’t need to see something associated to “Trump”? You possibly can mute the phrase “Trump” & even when somebody you already know tweets about him, you gained’t see it. You desire a chronological feed? You bought it.
Will an Instagram weblog work in addition to a WordPress weblog?
Instagram shouldn’t be a running a blog platform. It’s a social networking service / app. An Instagram web page shouldn’t be a weblog. Writing Instagram captions shouldn’t be “running a blog”.
Running a blog is a a lot bigger exercise than merely posting on Instagram. When you have an Instagram web page, technically, you don’t personal it – you might have little or no management over it. When you have your individual web site / weblog, you personal all of what you produce and publish.
It’s all the time higher to have a web site & weblog after which, presence on a handful of main social media networks.
What’s #NAINAMAMA? : “Naina’s Monday Ask Me Something”.
Having used the “Ask Me Something” questions field on Instagram Tales over the previous few years, I’ve thought of doing it in a extra structured approach and I’ve noticed that numerous the questions are repeated. The repetitiveness is comprehensible due to the character of Instagram. Tales are gone after 24 hours and never everybody will get to see them. This isn’t solely a waste of my time, but in addition a lack of info that somebody may discover helpful. I’ve, certainly, thought of saving these tales as “Story Highlights” on my Instagram profile however I don’t like how they eat up useful actual property. Somebody visiting my Instagram profile for the primary time, sees my profile photograph, my statistics, my bio after which a complete row of Story Highlights and THEN they get to the actual purpose they’re prone to interact with me : my work. With out the Story Highlights, they’ll see six posts and 1/fifth of one other three. With the Story Highlights they’ll solely see the primary three posts of their entirety, which, to me, is unacceptable.
Each Monday, I’ll put up the Q&A field on my Instagram Tales and try and reply about 5-10 questions. I may even doc these questions on my weblog, just like at present’s weblog publish.
