Staying focused, brain on technology, smell the roses, introvert in graphs #Blog Round-up from #introvert inspirer

My round-up blog numbers were escaping me. My fix is – let them go! This is my weekly round-up.

I want to stay focused on blogging tasks and slow down and smell the roses too! Without our brain what can we do? Heck, not even enjoy the graphs.

Disclaimer: usually these are blog posts from other bloggers and rarely, my writing. Sharing good content from across the web for you that you might not have seen.

Is Your Niche Blogging Attracting and Growing Your Online Reach as Much as You Want?

Thank you for making the last month more of an oasis for this introvert’s blogging efforts.

Often it can be either a desert or an oasis with online social media visibility. We can blog consistently, offer valuable and unique content, and can still think or feel, “Is this reaching more people?” Or even, “Where am I going with this blogging?”

Or is that just me? If it is, then you are way ahead of me.

Two unexpected and different kinds of recognition each arrived with their gifts. I don’t know quite what to make of it.

Most bloggers want to grow their reach.

But maybe you don’t care about recognition. It’s might be hard to believe an introvert would thrive in the limelight of it. But maybe in my situation it’s my award winning sales background that causes me to do a happy dance when winning something comes my way.

In defiance of the label for labels sake, there are of course other topics of interest beyond our type style for me.


Social media.

What’s going on in our world. And of course more.

Maybe you have interest in some of these topics as well.

We are all multi-dimensional and so if we follow blogs, my guess is our reading interest isn’t all on one side of the scale of personality type with so much to choose from. Here are my favorites.

5 Tips To Understand and Get Out of LinkedIn Group Posting Jail

LinkedIn Top ContributorFortunately I was visiting with family and focused on enjoying our time together when I got this surprise about my LinkedIn “group posting status” appearing across any and all my pages.

The message in a blue box, on the right side of every page read, “Your posts are now being moderated group wide.” Group Wide Auto Moderation or GWAM.

What?! The groups where I contribute actively, that contribution scale on the right of the window will show “Top Contributor.”

The message of posts being moderated brought on feelings of surprise, frustration and even anger. This last feeling after I tracked down the LinkedIn explanation which is specifically vague. After all, if you don’t know what caused the problem how can you fully correct it and recover.

It almost felt I was given a jail sentence.

Another blogger, Jen Dewar, used the term SWAM, “site wide auto moderation” in a post on her blog, “Help! I’ve been SWAM’d on LinkedIn! Actually many people refer to that term.

I believe more appropriately it’s GWAM because you are still able to post LinkedIn status updates. But whether it’s SWAM or GWAM it is certainly something to track down, act on and correct. Here are 5 tips to understand and be able to get out of LinkedIn group posting jail.

It can be because of one contribution to just one group that LinkedIn does not identify for the accused, which marked as spam or flagged irrelevant.

For me it was hard to say how recent the post was. It could have been years ago since people often jump on posts that go back as far as I’ve seen to 5 years ago.

You know the kind of perpetual posts I mean: highly popular and evergreen content posts or a post that is the moderators invitation to promote yourself in some way.

Only two possibilities in the LinkedIn help explain why a “group wide auto moderation” status message would appear everywhere once you log in:[Continue Reading…]
