influence

Every day we see or read of appalling things happening in the world as the result of violence. You may say, ‘I can’t do anything about it’, or, 'How can I influence the world?’ I think you can tremendously influence the world if in yourself you are not violent, if you lead actually every day a peaceful life – a life which is not competitive, ambitious, envious – a life which does not create enmity. Small fires can become a blaze.

Happy Birthday River J. Phoenix.

River is one of the most influential role model to me. He created art. When I see him in My Own Private Idaho, he really makes me feel for his character (Mike). A feeling I rarely get. I would have loved to talk to him about the making of the film. He seemed to have such a passion for it.

River makes me want to make a difference in the world, to show my own take on art. To make the world feel how he would make them feel. He’s the reason I’m going to pursue my passion for film. He taught me to never give up on what I believe in. He’s special to me and many important people. He is greatly missed.

Today I’m going to celebrate how he lived, and I hope he lived a wonderful life.

Paid vs Organic vs Publisher vs Influencer Sharing on Tumblr

What you’re looking at above are Tumblr reblog network graphs for four different types of Tumblr posts.

The complete graphs to the edge are not displayed (it’s big design challenge to fully display them in non-interactive way), but I made sure to crop them in way that directionally tells story of complete graph.

Notes:

  • Orange dot is the root post. As you can see in the paid influencer graph, it’s pretty easy to spot when a BIG blog reblogs a tiny one.
  • The paid ad has great reach, but a pretty shallow “share” pattern. (There’s nothing wrong with that. All sorts of awesome business goals can be accomplished with just reach (without sharing). But it’s still a notable distinction. Especially if agencies try to sell you “engagement,” you can bust them with a graph!)
  • The paid influencer ad kind of has the best of both worlds- deep sharing and a great burst of initial reach (I’m not going to out the paid influencer here, but I will say the post + the influencer were very well paired- both related to nostalgia memes, so the results are exceptional)
  • When you look at organic individuals’s graph, consider Tumblr posts’ long half-life
  • You might be asking, “are all those blog posts the same age, how do their organic audiences compare? How many followers?” Beyond the scope of this post, my friend. But I’ll say I tried to control for anything crazy. I’ll also say the big publisher has over 100K+ followers (which is still tiny compared to reach of Tumblr ads.) It’s a fair fight.

Thanks again to @staff + @idiot for this really useful tool.

The History of Box Braids
Black women have been told our natural kinks, coils, curls, waves and everything in between aren’t beautiful and should be changed to meet European beauty standards. Yet, when the Kardashian-Jenner clan or anyone non-Black wears hairstyles that first appeared on Black women, such as cornrows, Bantu knots or a Yaki-textured ponytail, it’s considered “new” and “chic” in the mainstream media and renamed in many instances. However, these same hairstyles are often deemed as “ghetto” and “unprofessional” when the person is Black. From bountiful afros to bold cornrows and Bantu knots, Black women have rocked some dope hairstyles over the years...

Same in sales. We often get lost in the sea of tactics and processes and tools, but what really matters most is listening to people and caring about their concerns. Do this first, and the sales will come.

Some of the most influential people today are people that never tried to get influence. The most admired people, the people that shape global opinion, are people that didn’t try to do that. Mother Teresa is a perfect example of that. The people that the world admires the most, are people that have no personal ambition – they just don’t care about themselves. So, this is important for us leaders to understand. We need to be very clear. We just love people, we just do what’s good, we just please our God, we humble ourselves under the hand of our Mighty God, and he exalts us at the proper time. It’s always going lower. Whenever there’s a problem the answer is going lower.
