If you were going to any kind of social event you would want to leave a good impression and you would be on your best behavior. Which, makes sense, right?

But, I feel like in our lives today – we do a lot of connecting through social media and forget to practice our social skills, if that makes any sense?

3 Social Media Etiquette NO NOs

Make sure you know what kind of impact your words have on the world. Because you have the chance to make yourself a better person or the chance to tear your name to shreds in the professional world. Continue reading “3 Social Media Etiquette NO NOs”

Pinterest Party | Adding a Pin It Button Over The Images on Your Blog

I’ve been trying to learn more about the other social media options rather than just sitting on Facebook, because who is with me – Facebook has gotten strange. And has anyone else noticed how depressing and negative it has been on there lately?

I read something the other day over at Ksenia’s blog, where she said, “Pick one marketing channel and stick with it.” I’ve also heard a few other writers mention that they only stick to 2 or 3 social media sites.

My Social Media Picks:

  1. Twitter
  2. Google +
  3. Pinterest
  4. Instagram (this one is more of a fun add on for me.)

Today I was brainstorming on ways to make these social media sites drive traffic to my blog.

I decided to make my blog a bit more Pinterest friendly. 🙂 So, I decided to make it easier for people to pin my posts by adding a ‘Pin It’ button to the corners of my photos. It was a bit confusing at first, but finally I figured it out, and MAN – was I happy when I finally got my ‘Pin It’ image to show up in the corner of my photos. haha… And now I’d like to show you How To Add a Pin It Button Over The Images on Your Blog!

Reasons you should have twitter

  • Many agents and publishers won’t look at you, if you don’t have a big enough platform (Twitter, Facebook, Blogs, and more) followers.
  • Today more than ever publishers want you to do the marketing. They are so busy, they don’t want to do as much themselves. They will do some, but not enough. Your platform is one thing publishers will notice. (So, this kind of leaves it up to you.)
  • It will grow your following, if you do it right.
