Every few years, I force everyone to follow me on a new social media platform and that platform is currently TikTok. Yep, just a few short weeks ago, only 12-year-olds were on TikTok, but since the whole world shutdown, your friends, teachers, medical professionals and probably your 75yo mother are all over there making videos with Drake and Dua Lupa songs. Don’t believe me? Go follow @mommyshorts on TikTok and I’m sure your mother will show up in your “for you” page any day now.
If you want to understand more about how to use TikTok, I will give a full rundown in a future post. You can ask me any questions in the comments below and if I know the answer, I’ll try to address them.
In the meantime, I thought I’d give you a little taste of what I’ve been doing over there. You know how I spent ten days quarantined in my guest room? Well, on my blog, I wrote a post it. On Instagram, I posted pictures about it. And on TikTok, I posted a series of music videos about it. Some people give themselves a break while in quarantine. Some people need to focus their creative energy or else they lose their mind. I guess I fall into the latter category. Making TikToks definitely helped pass the time, especially when I started to feel better but was still isolated in my room.
Ready? SOUND ON!
