Sometimes there isn’t an interesting story behind a project and sometimes there is a story worth sharing. This post shares one of those worthwhile stories. A story of joining a new social network where encouragement and feedback are plentiful.
Having spent more than a year on the social network Tsū. I’ve connected with many talented individuals. Photography is quite popular and there are hobby, amateur and professionals posting their work. I consider myself one of the amateurs sharing my photography from my DSLR camera and my iPhone. I have two accounts which is legal as long as the are for different reasons. My second page which I refer to as my business page is where I post my Zazzle information and a lot of animal (pet) related posts.
As a matter of fact, I’m posting my “365 Day Photo Challenge” photos on my Tsū page TheAspenStand. The majority of my photographs for those posts come from my iPhone. My phone is conveniently always with me so it makes the challenge less stressful knowing I can get a shot for the day with it. I’ve received quite a bit of feedback and inspiration on this challenge. This photo received 90 likes and 12 shares not to mention 22 comments.
Tsū has updated several times since it’s inception in October 2014. There were many doubters about a social network that pays for your original content posts. There were and still are growing pains similar to what I’ve watched as other social networks like Twitter and Facebook grew.
Tsū is going strong and has updated the format recently. We now have 13 Topics (subjects) ranging from Animals to Style. These Topics not only offer related posts but Channels (groups) that individual members add and manage. Some are moderated to ensure original content is posted and some are not. Under the Community Topic, there is one of many groups I follow and appreciate called #coffeetime. You’ll find coffee related photographs, recipes, articles just fun chatter about our favorite beverage. The post related to the photo below is where I schooled followers about how to warm up the caramel in a Stroopwafel.
You can follow public channels or just visit to see what is posted in them. There are also private channels that you can may be invited or request to join.
When I have something interesting to post, I add it via my Tsū page TheAspenStand and select what topic or channel I want to add it to also. The post is then seen by the individuals who follow my page and those who follow the channel or topic. This new format now allows my original content posts to be seen by more individuals thus offering a chance to increase my daily earnings.
As in other posts I’ve written about Tsū, I remind you that you aren’t going to get rich posting there. I make pennies a day generally from $.10 to $.15 if I get interactive with a couple of posts and shares of other peoples work. Truth is the most I’ve made was $.36 one day. I have stuck there because I get more interaction on my posts there than other social sites and I make some pocket change while I’m at it. I don’t get that a Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and Facebook.
The new format has made it more streamlined so you can visit and interact with friends and followers on your favorite channels. Yes, it’s going to take a bit getting used to but you already know how that is because you probably found this post via another social site that you had to learn.
If I haven’t peaked your interest, let me know in the comments what else you would like to know. I am more than happy to help you understand it. If you like what you read, go check out either of my pages. I post mostly photography on TheAspenStand and I share my Zazzle products / information DesignsByPatricia.
Like what you see join with one of my shortcodes (links). That puts you in my Tsū network. I can explain networks that in another post.
