The Stages of Becoming a “Woke” Teen

At some point in our lives, we have all had an awakening to the social world and all the issues around us. If you haven’t had this “awakening” yet, I’m sure you’ll have it at some point sooner or later. This awakening to the social world usually occurs after we’ve experienced something significant or read about a problem that really stuck with us and made us realize the actual reality that surrounds us. Now, if you’ve already had this awakening then you’re probably familiar with the stages of becoming socially aware or “woke”, and if you haven’t had your awakening yet then maybe these stages will help you understand whats in store for you when the time comes.

1) Recognition and Awareness: 

Becoming socially aware starts with the awareness and recognition of social issues such as feminism, racism, homophobia and so on. Our awareness of these social issues usually comes from media outlets and social media as well since many people now use social media as an activism tool. This recognition and awareness usually plays a huge part in our “awakening” of the social world.

2) Research:

Once we’ve become aware of the social issues around us, we start to develop a sense of care for these issues and their solutions; it is common for us to research more about them and to find the actual truth of what is going on and why it’s happening. Doing research to educate yourself on social issues is great but we also have to make sure that we are getting our information from credible sources and not media outlets that like to falsify things.

3) Connect:

After doing research and educating ourselves further on social issues by using credible sources we now move on to connecting with other people who feel the same way about us and have the same views. Connection involves following people on social media that use their accounts as a way to promote awareness for issues and it also involves joining local organizations and clubs based on issues that we are passionate about.

4) Involvement:

With connection also comes involvement, once we’ve connected ourselves with people who have the same views as us and are also socially aware, we find the motivation to get directly involved such as with joining local protests and charities that help make a difference.

Although, becoming “woke” and developing an awakening to our social world seems like something pretty basic it is also something super important to develop as it allows us to grow as people and it allows us to educate our own friends and family on issues that we are passionate or concerned about which only makes the chain of “woeness” continue.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
