Discussion: Connect with Me

So I’ve been beyond fed up and bored with Facebook lately. It’s beginning to feel a lot like MySpace and the ads are out of control. Similarly with Twitter, although I like Twitter more than Facebook since I can actually see content from Businesses and People that I follow rather than a million different spammy quizzes about “What Type of X Are You?”

I’m a san seriff X by the way. (Font pun for the win)

But Facebook has been dying, Twitter is stagnant, and I feel like Instagram is also on its way out.

Not to mention-posting to all of these as a blogger/author/person is exhausting. And I’m not even connecting with the people I want to connect with.

I want to stay in touch with my in person crowd – which consists of roughly seven people these days – and my book world. I want to connect with you, my fellow bloggers, on a place that isn’t Goodreads.

Especially since Goodreads has its own problems.

So I’d like to talk about Vero. It’s only on your phone and it’s new so it has some issues. But so far I like it and I would love it if you would download and connect with me. Like all social platforms you can find me under JMTuckerman.

And if there is something I can connect with you on, post it in the comments. I think it’s time for us to make friends and do some crossover posts in the community and on booktube channels and on podcasts.

We should all work together to promote each other.

Resumes and Cover Letters

I just sent off my resume and cover letter for a social media internship at Quirk Books!

I really hope I get it!

As many of you know (or may have suspected) I just want to work with books. I didn’t start to love reading until I was 11 years old. Think of all the reading time I missed out on because of that!

And so I want to go into Children’s Publishing because I want to be part of a team who draws a child into reading so that no one else misses out on all the fun!

Wish me luck everyone!

Hyper-Talented

I have been told that I should create separate portfolios for all of my work. In that respect I would have a portfolio for

  • Writing (maybe even one for each genre that I write in)
  • Graphic Design
  • Photography
  • Video Production
  • Web Design
  • Social Media Management

(c) Jessica Tuckerman 2014: This piece utilized my photography and graphic design skills. The choice to use this photo over other photos also include my experience as a dancer and helped me to find straight legs and unlocked knees.

And they will all be interconnected making the navigation an absolute nightmare. Every page I manage will then be a big hot mess all because I wanted to market all of my talents.
