Hitting 40K on #tiktok

40k on #tiktok, how?

When I began my journey on TikTok I thought I would be able to help a few people and maybe have a few thousand followers somewhere down the road.

I posted my first video; it was more like dipping my toes into very icy waters. I was uncomfortable and awkward making the videos. I put myself out there for the world to see and slowly got into the groove of things. I created my TikTok to help locals and at the same time be the fish out of water story for my blog. Because I needed content for my blog, I forced myself to go out and meet people.

In a nutshell.

One thing led to another, some videos went viral, and others flopped. I still do not know the exact formula. Maybe I will never know. Some videos went nuts, and others flopped.

I was on a road trip with beautiful scenery and did a pile of content yet barely got 1000 views. Now I know that using different hashtags will attract different people. My TikTok seems to be locked in on the hashtag I have used.

Not being a TikTok expert the algorithm is very sensitive; I try to adhere to the posting and TikTok Live times as much as I can.

It has changed me.

Being on TikTok has changed me for the better. I am far more compassionate and outgoing. I was never shy talking to people however, this certainly has opened a new world. It seems that having support from people online can change you.

Now that does not mean I have changed. It means I have attracted like-minded people to my account and thus I have had regular viewers that agree with what I have to say. I have made friends online and have their support. It is a weird, strange, and sometimes overwhelming feeling to have that support.

40,000 people?

In the grand scheme of things, it is nothing. On a personal note, it is interesting. I could say that there is very little hate on my page. There is much talk about single moms, dating, and of course the business aspect of it all. I try to help locals in business, yet my TikTok Live usually ends up with relationships and searching for a white husband. Indonesian women seem to love foreign men. This is nothing new, but in an open forum, it is a little uncomfortable at times. Nevertheless, hitting 40k is something I never thought would happen. I hope to pass on good vibes and a positive message to the local people, businesses, and individuals.

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.
