So as you may know by now, I’m a big fan of Social Media and I’ve written a similar blog post to this before. But, let me tell you why I’m writing a social post again.
I’m one of those people who probably spends a little too much time on my phone, but what I’ve learnt over the past eight months of blogging is that your blog is really not going to amount to much without the help of social media. Pretty much all the bloggers I follow utilise it to help their engagement and followers to grow, and really when you think about it, it’s a great way to get exposure for your blog.
If you’re a blog starting out this year however, the social media world is against you. Both Facebook and Instagram have introduced new algorithms which make it so much harder to gain followers or likes, and sometimes I feel like it’s a constant up hill struggle. But I solider on because ultimately, having multiple social media platforms has really helped me to grow my following so far which I’m very grateful for.
But every so often I do wonder how many of my social media followers actually read my blog posts. Do you read my blog posts? I really hope you do!
I think I was a bit naive at the beginning of my blogging journey because there is so much more involved than just writing. I love writing, but I’ve also had to learn about photography, social media, theming accounts, becoming a brand, discovering how much or how little of myself I want to share with the world, and mostly I’ve learnt, how important social media engagement is to your growth. The whole experience has taught me so much that I didn’t know before.
And that’s where today’s post comes in. If you’re going through the same struggles as me, and finding it a bit tough to grow your social media presence, then let’s get social. Let’s have each others backs, connect on social media and share the love. I want to come follow you, and I’d be so happy if you could please come follow me too.
Here’s where you can find me:
The good old reliable that is Facebook. I share all my blog posts here as well as letting you know about places and spaces I’m visiting.
Instagram is probably my favourite of all because I love pretty pictures. I’m not a great photographer or anything, but I’ve been learning loads about theming and colours so I think I’m getting a little better.
Twitter is great for instant conversations, and I love tweeting live when there are big things happening like events or launches.
Snapchat is coming a close second favourite behind Instagram lately. I love the instant interaction it gives you with your followers. I share lots of videos on products, what I’m up to and my daily musings.
I’ve always been a fan of Pinterest for inspiration and my Pinterest boards are a collection of all the things I love from beauty looks, to outfits, to yummy food and spectacular spaces.
I really hope you all come say hey. And, it would be fab if you could comment below with all your social media handles so I can come follow you all too.
