Blog: Graduate Into The Real World

ChaChanna Simpson’s blog is on WordPress.com.

DC Social Media Examiner (DCSME): What is your blog about?

ChaChanna Simpson (CS): My blog is dedicated to helping twentysomethings and their parents adjust to life after college.

Topics I cover are on money, health, relationships, movtivation/goals, and career.

DCSME: How did you pick the topic for Graduate Into The Real World?

CS: When I graduated college, I was unsure of what to do to enter the real world. I was proficient in what I went to study but I was clueless about life skills. So, as I was finding out how to adjust to life after college I set out to document what I was learning and share it with other recent grads who were just as unsure.

DCSME: How is Graduate Into The Real World different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?

CS: My blog focuses on the details of life, such as getting an apartment, managing money, building healthy adult relationships. I regularly feature posts from experts in health, money, relationships and career. I also have a section for parents because their grad becoming an adult is a transition for them as well.

DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?

CS: I love that I am able to share what I have learned and have people add their comments. So, I guess I enjoy the community that a blog can develop.

DCSME: How often do you update Graduate Into The Real World?

CS: I update my blog five days a week, Monday thru Friday.

DCSME: What else would you like to share with readers of your profile?

CS: Yes, I will be venturing into video soon to add some new ways to connect with my visitors. I think bloggers should always try new ways to engage their readers. So, if you’ve been doing only videos, throw in a blog post every now and then. If you are solely blogging throw in video or audio post. It’s fun to add something new.

Blog: WRITING DOWN THE SHELTER

Patricia Aust’s blog is on Blogspot.com.

DC Social Media Examiner (DCSME): What is your blog about?

Patricia Aust (PHA): My experiences as a domestic violence shelter volunteer where I provide small counseling groups for kids3-16.

DCSME: How did you pick the topic for WRITING DOWN THE SHELTER?

PHA: I wanted others to understand the profound effect that growing up in a violent or pychologically cruel home has on following generations.

DCSME: How is WRITING DOWN THE SHELTER different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?

PHA: It shows the effect of DV on children as they use therapeutic techniques or toys. Explains the complexity of the problem one vignette at a time.

DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?

PHA: I believe I am helping victims and anyone coming into contact with DV victims to understand the complexity of this problem. It is deep, wide, and greatly misunderstood.

DCSME: How often do you update WRITING DOWN THE SHELTER?

PHA: 2-3 times a week.

DCSME: What else would you like to share with readers of your profile?

PHA: I’m a clinical social worker, former school social worker, and a published author (children’s MG novels).
At present, my agent is pitching my YA, SHELTER, set in a DV shelter and involving both domestic and dating violence.
