Embracing Change: A Fresh Start for Sharon Rene

Hey Friends,

Guess what? It's been a whirlwind of a week in the digital realm! My long-standing companions, Facebook and Instagram, decided to take an unexpected vacation. Yup, infiltrated and suspended – a plot twist I didn't see coming. But here's the kicker: instead of diving into a pool of frustration, I found myself strangely relieved. It's like that deep breath you take after a storm clears.

Let's rewind to 2006, the year I embarked on this social media journey. Fast forward through ups, downs, and a few account lockouts – 2009, anyone? Last week marked the end of my second Facebook chapter. Instead of mourning the loss, I'm seizing the opportunity to refocus, redirect, and rediscover the joy of creating on my very own canvas:

In this unexpected detour, I've found a silver lining. Join me as we explore the shift, the relief, and the exciting prospects that come with pouring energy into what matters most: my website and the creative wonders that await.

Reflecting on a Social Media Journey:

As I navigate the sudden departure from Facebook and Instagram, it's impossible not to take a stroll down memory lane. For the longest time, I wore the crown of "Facebook Queen," a title that, while flattering, felt a bit too ostentatious. It's funny how something as seemingly trivial as a nickname can carry weight. The irony? I often found myself dimming that regal light to appease the comfort zones of certain friends. Silly, right?

Social media, my digital realm of highs and lows, brought both praise and mockery. For every "like" I received, there was a jesting remark waiting in the wings. It was a dance between validation and vulnerability. But here's the magic: those platforms connected me with thousands worldwide, creating a virtual space to exchange ideas, dreams, and snippets of our lives.

Yet, as the world around us took unexpected turns, the connective power of social media shifted. The once-universal language of shared experiences became more nuanced. Enter my alter ego, "Viv," a digital sorceress weaving a world of art, music, food, health, and motivation. Through the ebbs and flows of likes, laughs, cares, loves, and shares, I found the courage to create.

Here's to the journey—where "Facebook Queen" meets the vulnerability of creative expression, and where the tapestry of social media experiences has shaped the artist and storyteller within me. Join me as we venture into a new chapter, leaving behind the old monikers and embracing the authenticity of Sharon, the creator.

A Shift in Focus:

Now that we've bid Facebook and Instagram adieu, it's time to spill the tea on the exciting turn this unexpected detour has sparked. Picture this: a turning point where setbacks transform into stepping stones, guiding me toward the heart of my creative universe—Sharon Rene Enterprises.

The hiatus from the familiar social media landscape has opened a portal to refocus my energies on what truly matters:, the virtual canvas that captures the essence of my artistic endeavors. This isn't just about me; it's about nurturing the growth of Bee+Hive Artist Collective (BHAC), RA Essentials, and Sharon Rene Photography. It's a holistic approach to my creative world.

Mark your calendars because 2024 is set to be a showstopper! "Resilience in Art: Black Artists Unveiled in Old Town Orange" is in the works, a testament to the power of creativity in overcoming challenges. But that's not all – keep your eyes peeled for gallery showings making their mark in the vibrant arts scene of Los Angeles.

Resilience in Art

Amidst these grand plans, there's a steadfast commitment to keeping alive and buzzing. Expect a dynamic hub where the latest events, musings, and artistic expressions unfold. It's not just a website; it's a living, breathing testament to the evolving tapestry of Sharon Rene Enterprises.

Join me in this transformative journey, where every keystroke, every snapshot, and every creation contributes to the vibrant symphony that is my creative world.

The Joy of Creation:

Now, let's dive into the heart of the matter—the sheer exhilaration of charting my course on the canvas of Liberation is an understatement; it's a dance of creative freedom, unrestrained by the algorithms of social media giants.

Maintaining my own platform feels like reclaiming a piece of the digital wilderness, where ideas can sprout, and creativity can run wild. The ability to curate an environment that reflects my artistic vision, unfiltered and unapologetically me, brings an unparalleled joy.

But here's the sprinkle of magic dust: I've decided to take the storytelling to new heights. Picture this – the resurrection of my book series, not in the conventional realms, but in the whimsical world of TikTok. Why? Because creativity should be as contagious as laughter!

Imagine snippets of narratives unfolding in short, playful bursts, each TikTok video a tiny portal into the worlds I've crafted. It's not just about reading; it's about experiencing the essence of my tales in a lively, dynamic format.

Buckle up for this joyous rollercoaster ride, where storytelling meets modernity on TikTok. It's not just a book release; it's a celebration, an invitation to join in the playfulness and vibrancy that define my creative universe.
