Life in September: Day Eight

Write about the ways using social media has changed your blogging.

Like most of you, when I first started blogging I wrote for myself. Everyday (or few weeks) I would write some heartfelt piece, push publish, and pray that someone would read it. If someone commented, even better! I still remember the first comment I received. I had no clue that I should email my commenters back, heck I didn’t even know I could check my stats!

But I digress, social media. Right.

I love Twitter. I love being able to connect to my readers in a quick way. Like tweeting out a link for my blog or some great article I’ve read. Don’t  forget the obscene amount of pictures I send out. I feel closer to bigger bloggers and my own readers.  And lets be honest, I addicted to stalking celebrities!

Instagram is my newish way to be inspired and try to inspire others. My favorite people to follow post healthy recipes, motivational quotes, and exercise routines. They make me feel like I’m not alone! Do you know that some company’s post flash sales, coupon codes, and special deals through their Insta’s? If you can get past the occasional selfie, Instagram has become my go to for free motivation.

Overall, social media is my blog’s life blood. A quick easy way to get my words shared. Remember to add you address in your profile. Get out there! Let people know who you are, what you’re about, and what you have to offer the blog world.
