Practice What You Preach, Andrea

Practice What You Preach, Andrea

I say it every day: "First place your content on your website and then go into social media and link back to it."

I wish that is what I'd been doing all along this cancer journey. But instead, I ignored my own advice and since February 2012 have haphazardly posted content to Instagram, Pinterest, CaringBridge, Google+, Path, text messages, Google docs, LinkedIn, Jesus Calling bookmarks, YouTube, YouVersion bookmarks, blog comments, emails to myself, Facebook & Twitter. Now it's biting me in my behind. There's no single place to go to get the whole picture.

This picture is a screenshot of what Google returns as first page search results for "Lorelei Decker cancer." These search results go for many pages. And there's nothing chronological about them. The obsessive-compulsive part of my nature that wants to view the journey chronologically.  If, all along, I'd been following my own advice and posting first here to my blog I'd have exactly what I desire. 

Therefore, I repent.  Let's see if I can wrangle in my disorganized social media addiction into something that resembles a plan for communication going forward.

And then maybe I'll go backward to recreate the timeline in an organized fashion.  I wonder if this is what it feels like to begin writing a book. Kind of like a virtual scrapbook. Yes, a virtual cancer journey scrapbook is my new mission.

I can't stop crying. I'm so sorry for what is hanpneipg to you and your family, Alison. I am amazed by your upbeat attitude and strength to write this blog. Thank you for sharing, for making us appreciate every day, healthcare, wonderful husbands, sweet dogs and of course the rest of the network of friends & family that make up our good fortune. I wish you all the best a swift, painless and complete recovery. I have a friend who did have the genes BRCA 1 or 2 and opted to preemptively remove both breasts. It was the darkest year I've seen her have but she closed herself off from everyone. GOOD FOR YOU that you are letting in the light and love by sharing here. I love you. Shakti

Granted that I have many years without going to the inlasd I must say that I don't have such discomfort caused bya inlasders Rumor has it that I am una maldita loca degracie1 que no le trae nada a nadie y que no le gusta cargar vainas no matter how much you begg me to take them Sooooooo, NOBODY and I mean NOBODY dare to ask me to bring anything. On the other subject I have the knowledge that when you are a dom-york or dom-eur or dom-whatever the opening of a bottle o beer is directly proportional to unexpected friends showing up. Therefore, yo me bebo la cerveza que me guarda mi madre, y ya ta Ased que yo amigas sf3lo conservo una en Sto.

Unquestionably consider that that you stated.
Your favourite justification seemed to be at the internet the easiest factor to take
into accout of. I say to you, I certainly get irked even as
folks consider issues that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and outlined out
the whole thing without having side-effects , other
people could take a signal. Will likely be again to get more.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed
to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% positive.
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or
2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
