I’m getting my head around my Social Profile

I’m seriously starting with the whole social media and blog thing again as I think it will benefit , well hoping it will benefit, with photography sales and affiliation from the products I use. Deciding on how to do it as i’m totally out of my depth is another thing. I have watched webinars, they hook you with the ‘free’ webinar on how to make money from … then hit you for $497 reduced to $97 for the next 2 hours. COME ON, this is how they make their money.

It makes sense to syndicate your social media accounts, use Hootsuite or one of the others, set a page up in a file on your computer for blog posts as they come to you then put them on Hootsuite and post them religiously every day. It cant be THAT hard can it? I’m giving it a go hoping its as easy as other people make it look, wish me Luck!

How did I name Spikey Mouse Photography?

I am always asked how did I come up with ‘spikey mouse photography‘ for my business, well it wasn’t really me. I have to admit that it is all thanks to a little boy called Ben who wanted to buy his mum a birthday present.

Ben is my eldest son and he was out with his grandmother one day and decided that he should buy me a present for my birthday, I think he was around 3 or 4 years old at the time. They finally came up with a ceramic ‘Hedgie’ hedgehog and Ben has been buying me 2 or 3 of them a year ever since. It is an understatement to say that I now have quite a collection and when I was naming my new business adventure everyone suggested using ‘Hedgehog’ but I wanted something a little different and found that in Bengali Hedgehog was spikey mouse and a business was born!

Strange how things happen, I have a great and memorable company name and am reminded of my little boy Ben every business day. Ben is now a grown man and a father himself and is really happy I chose to use him as my muse, thank you Ben. x
