A Thought: MICRO-INFLUENCER

We go again,

What I want to talk about isn’t a new thing, it’s not an astounding thing, it’s just something that exists. And exist in many forms. The micro-influencer is a cultural icon and must be applauded for their placement and strategic influence in the social space. Whatever you like on Facebook, retweet on Twitter, or reblog on Tumblr it is because a micro-influencer allowed you to see it.

Just like one of my favourite orators, Pulitzer Prize-winning Will Durant, this is a shameless worship of heroes, a light on these social heroes that stand high above the rest with their newsworthy exploits, like how they are literally exploited by “True Media” & “Real News”. Such big media outlets are not fast enough to actually pick up on such stories as these men women and trans people.

In a space where there is cultural relevance, there is a micro-influencer in the wing to cross the ball into the box for these misguided behemoths. All trends were made and given to the youth by the youth, when you’re of the old guard respect and play your position and listen to what the youth tell you.

The youth create, good or bad in your opinion it is a fact it was the cause of the old guard it is that way. You see descent and decay it was the cause of the old guard. Greatness and Potential, the old guard. The micro-influencer sheds light on them all, and when you have a cluster of them together the effect is Virality. It is a simple fact that a few or more “Mavens” (in the words of Malcolm Gladwell) have the potential to create phenomenon so much so quality is only a matter of taste.

For what it’s worth I find it all beautiful as a 20SMTHNG, the potential of my generation’s ability to connect across continents. Simply astounding and can’t wait to see where it goes. As long as the people’s media lives so do the micro-influencer.

Who, me?

By convention standards, I have quite the under the average unique set of skills, especially physically. Quite literally less than the standard, so somewhat unique. Or that’s what I like to tell myself, so in constantly trying to prove this I tell it to myself.

I would never take anything out of my circumstance’s though, without forcing hyperbole a true blue original situation. I’ve come to realize this quite early to make the most of the time I have in a day. I waste some and utilize most with the purpose to do just that. Some say its Gods timing I say I do what I want ‘Big G’ knows what I’m on (and that was Ironic blasphemy). I say that to say this, I’m living life on my own terms if I want to drop a term or a vowel when I speak I will when I want to speak “proper” it happens. If I want to make a blog I will do it my own way.

I’ve had this itch to not be a statistic or the norm or like them from a very early age. Manifesting itself to how I want to live my life, now it could get me in trouble probably has but I’m 20SMTHNG and mistakes will be made, I am not made to be normal. I wasn’t made to be weird or unique, I have come to do my own thing.

I have been writing since I was a child it’s transmuted into many things right now I’m using it to talk in my own way. To determine, or maybe to procrastinate from a real thing that I’m avoiding. All I know now I will journal essay and create a type of art of my own with my writing. Maybe it can help someone do 20SMTHNG like I am or an essay see yourself doing things in a different light, all I know in my 20SMTHNG way. And all a 20SMTHNG can do is all a 20SMTHNG can do. You really shouldn’t expect much. I’m just happy being able to be me and to express myself how I want. You should try it, in all honesty, it might be liberating.
