Connecting thru passion

When you talk to young people these days, invariably the conversation steers towards the social media like Facebook or Twitter and to some extent LinkedIn for professional activities.

As a Blogger I am also an avid user of social media. But like they say, to write a blog is only 10 percent of the job done, the balance is how do you get people to read it.

I used to write my Blogs on Google and share them but was not happy with the response I was getting. So I decided to set up my own site but again with limited success.

Then I read about our own home grown Affimity in the daily newspaper and wanted to try it.

Now my posts on Affimity, be it photos, blogs or other articles, get good response from people I don’t know.

Unlike Facebook where only your friends see your post in the jungle of posts, Affimity comes with a breath of fresh air. Affimity works on channels like food, parents, working moms, fitness, jokes and fashion which are shared by people having similar interests.

I have now been on Affimity for less than a month and I am getting a lots of encouraging comments on my posts. On some of travel stories people have thanked me about letting them know that off beat places can also be fun. My high came a few days ago when somebody not only liked my picture but added that she liked the way I had framed the shot.

Thank you Affimity.
