How my personality has influenced my groups.
|All my struggles, personally and professionally, have led me to figure out how exactly I want to run my groups. I have had little support from the people that love me, and I know they love me. They just never understood my need commit myself totally to my writing. I was floating, and sometimes sinking, in a sea of solitude. I decided to share my talents and abilities with the world because I didn’t want anyone else to feel as alone as I had. I wanted others with dreams of owning their own business to have the support I never had. Therefore, parts of my personality come through in the Facebook groups I have hosted.
I know that there is always someone worse off than you in the world. I want to be helpful, and I try to help my group members in any way I can.
I have felt abandoned, so my group members will not feel this way, if I can help it. I have very little engagement in my new group, “Transition To Success”, yet, and this makes helping my members difficult. But I am determined to keep trying.
I soak up information. I found out that daily features can encourage engagement. I started daily features the minute that the group was created. I am on many different email lists, and I am paying attention to every influencer whose community I am a part of and getting tips about how they run their Facebook groups.
I am compassionate. I am trying to be generous with my time. I am also trying to find out more about my members to be able to comment on their lives and special events as much as possible.
I also know my limits. I am not afraid to make mistakes and let my community know about them. I am certainly not perfect and will not pretend I am.
Every part of my heart and mind goes into my groups.
