2 updates on projects:

That new invention idea I’ve been working on quietly in the background, the one with the headphones, has failed yet again. I’m pretty sure my theory is sound, I just need a good way to implement it. It’s a pretty cool idea that could be super beneficial, if it would just stop not working (said every inventor ever). One day it will work, and then everything will be awesome for a couple hours, before another obstacle rears its head.

For Teazzed, I’d been putting it on the backburner lately, because I was getting my book finalized. But I recently got back to it and redid the website and am gearing up to do some marketing. It is so cool to be able to make tea brewed to completion in about 30 seconds. I take my straw a lot of places, and especially on trips, so I don’t have to worry about making tea the old-fashioned way. Feel free to mosey on over and check out the new design:

7. Social Media Marketing

Did you know, in the process of Photosynthesis, that Photosystem II comes before Photosystem I? What actually happened was Photosystem I was discovered first, and people thought that was the end-all, be-all, and then someone else came along later and discovered something happens before Photosystem I. So, they called it Photosystem II.

You may think you are on the right track and doing fine, but there may be something lacking or some better approach you could be trying.

I am not that big into social media—I dabble on Facebook (, and I’ve recently gotten into Instagram (, I have fun with the advertising, and I like to make people laugh. I don’t currently post all the time like some people suggest; I try to post at least once a day or every other day—it varies depending on how much time I have to devote to marketing.

I’m still new to the whole social media marketing thing, but I think this is one approach I should be taking to reach people. While my marketing is in the beginning stages, I am learning as I go, from how other social media marketers showcase their stuff, and from what I read online.

How do you use social media? Do you post every day? Do you check your social media religiously, or is it something more of in the background? During the school year, I don’t access social media during work hours, so for me it is more of a background thing.
