As I have been attempting to study for the last year, I have been unable to improve Rucksack Rose much. However now that I am back in the world, I am implementing several plans to spruce things up and show that I have been thinking about it while I was away. To keep you posted these currently include:
- Creating fresh content
- Refreshing the content and some of the pictures on my blog
- Improving my existing and forthcoming videos.
- Introducing ways to allow people to offer support
- Seeking collaborators and walking companions
Rucksack Rose thoughts:
I am delighted by the popularity of some of my platforms but I recognise that some have been more successful than others. Some social media platforms have simply fallen out of favour in the last 4 years and I try to move with the times without becoming too slavish about it. I am beginning to feel that quality is more important than quantity online which is partly why I am looking at it all afresh.
Blog – Knowing I am niche but realising that I have something worth sharing with other like minded people has been key to creating this blog and profile. I am gradually refreshing all the content and some of the poor quality, older pictures on my blog.
YouTube – It is hard for walking videos to compete with the new generation of Red Bull™ extreme sports type videos on YouTube, so I have tried to create videos which are an antithesis to these and instead show the peacefulness and beauty of walking in wild places. I accept that the quality of my older videos isn’t good due to my poor camera and editing software. I have therefore been working through the old videos to improve their metadata and investing in new software to improve the quality of future videos.
I will be deleting Audioboom and Google Plus.
