5 Best Social Media Posts of Week #42
And one more fabulous week has gone past and my quest to learn more about Social Media continuous. This week, the focus though had been on Blogging How-To - start a blog, find content, spread the word, get noticed etc. The reason to do this was to make this blog a great place for my readers to visit. I always want my readers to have a quality experience reading the posts and motivate them to share their views and engage, which is the beauty of being in the Social Media game.
With that in mind, here are few posts that made to top this week.
Top 5 Social Media post of week #42
- The post ‘7 Tips For Maintaining Blogging Motivation‘ by Rebecca Livermore stirred me up at the start of the week. It made me look out for my blogging mojo – what motivates me to write and if that motivation is good enough to sustain. Like she put in point #3 on the post, someday I would like to put my editorial calendar out to the world so that it help me and the readers to know what is expected in the coming weeks. It’s very essential for bloggers to leverage social media and it was good to see Rebecca cover that point very well and explains its importance.
- As blogger, we tend to focus on improving the blog posts each time we write and these 12 tips by Sonia Jackson were spot on not only for anyone who is beginning to write but also established ones. For beginners, it helps to know what how to write a good blog while it would be quite refreshing read for the established folks and will help them to tweak certain strategies if they are going awry.
- One of the pertinent question for every blogger is how they can get their blog heard. There are millions of blogs and to stand out from them and get noticed is quite a challenge. This post by Jane at BasicBlogTips shares her opinion on how to get past the noise and get noticed. I particularly liked the first point. A blogger has to stir up certain issues, get controversial to grab the eyeballs and get people to comment and engage. On bonding with other readers you can effectively leverage Social Media platforms to engage with readers and generate some traffice. Social Media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and other have proven to be quite helpful to engage beyond the blogs.
- Why would someone read your blog? Is the content interesting for them to read further? Well, if you’re still looking for answer to those question, visit this post by Elizabeth. While I always agree, that a blog should have some great call to action (CTA), Elizabeth was good about point #3 & #4. Writing like you’re talking to friends will make your post look less mechanical or made up. The easy reading will even help the visitors with lesser knowledge of English to understand the post. #4 about doing your research is absolutely important. Only proper research will help you to write with authority.
- If you’re someone who follows me on Google+, you know am not among the most active ones. That is one Social Media platform which I have not taken fancy of yet. Though, these days am trying to spend some time there and become a bit active and this post by Peg Fitzpatrick will surely make my life easier. I did use ‘Do Share’ at times, but never knew about other fantastic tools out there to make our Google+ experience easy. Now if you don’t find me active there, just blame my laziness
