Blog: Creative Ramblings
Cendrine Marrouat’s blog is self-hosted on WordPress.
DC Social Media Examiner (DCSME): What is your blog about?
Cendrine Marrouat (CM): Creative Ramblings is about social media with a particular focus on independent artists and entrepreneurs, rather than big businesses.
DCSME: How did you pick the topic for Creative Ramblings?
CM: When I started my career as an independent artist, I quickly realized that the road to good exposure is paved with challenges. As I had no one to guide me in the right direction, I chose not to wait for success to find me.
I started doing a lot of research and actually enjoyed my finds. As I discovered Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and learnt to use other social networking sites, I realized that social media was becoming unavoidable.
When I had acquired sufficient knowledge on the topic, I started sharing through discussions with people. They advised me to start blogging, which I did. And now, I cannot live without it!
DCSME: How is Creative Ramblings different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?
CM: My blog is unique in the sense that I offer a no-nonsense and honest approach based on my personal experience.
I like to create articles and tutorials that are easy for people to understand — something that I have enjoyed doing since my days as a teacher.
DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?
CM: I love the freedom that blogging brings. There is neither deadline no contract. I can write whenever I want and share my thoughts on any topic relevant to my niche.
Most people do not realize how important blogging is when it comes to building a solid reputation online.
DCSME: How often do you update Creative Ramblings?
CM: I try to do it four or five times a week. However, I also have three other blogs. Further, I hold six titles with Examiner.com, including Canada Social Media Examiner. So juggling with everything can be quite challenging…
DCSME: What else would you like to share with readers of your profile?
CM: Apart from blogging, I am also a freelance journalist/reviewer, published author and translator.
I am always interested in spotlighting independent artists and experts in the social media field, so contact me.
