Influenced, influencers. Part 1

Let’s all be influencers!

The other day at an average Starbucks, I saw a young couple walk in and document the whole process of buying two drinks. After the drinks were placed on the counter, the young lady sort of somewhat undid her top a little and her boyfriend or friend snapped a pic of her. The top being undone was because she must have been feeling warm. I mean it is Bali after all and it is hot out. Or maybe she had a fever, that must be it. Maybe she had COVID and was feeling hot, hot, hot.

Or it may possibly have been for a few extra likes? Who am I kidding? It must have been bloody warm in her bosom and she needed some air. No, it had to be for likes, I think…

Let’s all be influenced by influencers! 

Why not? We are all influencers. In a way we are, we do influence, right? The only problem is, that not all of us get paid. Let me correct that, we are all influencers but very few of us get paid. The problem here, as I see it, is that all young people want to be the next big thing. Posing for photos anywhere. The issue I see here is… This drive for the next best photo by billions of cell phone owners. I doubt she was trying to achieve anything else but a nice post at Starbucks. She is not going to be the next big thing…

Why bother?

There is only one reason… You just never know. I will say that for one reason only… A close family member of mine, my son, was seen posting many years ago now on Instagram. He ended up getting a job out of it at the age of 13 and a half! Yes, he was hired by a high-end wheel shop in Ontario Canada and to this day, many years later he still works there. 

This is not the norm. Sure, millions of people are out there trying their luck. He wasn’t, he was only making content for fun with a cheap camera and Go-pro. Being lucky is part of the game, being good at what you do is another. Often, being lucky is also being good. Professional people, do recognize talent. Influencers that are good photographers will generally have more likes and followers. Why? Because they are good.

Being good at it.

What is social media anyway? Today it is a tool to get business, awareness and fame. Fame? It depends on what you post and the timing of it all. On my other blog platform, I posted a certain thought of mine on the LGBT community and transgender people in general. Let’s just say I happened to get the wrong sort of boost on my opinion. So there are several ways to be famous. 

The Kardashian way, the Paris Hilton way or actually being good at something besides blow-jobs. Good luck to you all.

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
