I GROANED when I read the title of today’s assignment.
The good news is: I WAS ALREADY following some of Blogging University’s advice.
I have Sharing Buttons at the bottom of each post. In WordPress, you go to “My Sites,” then “Sharing”. Located at the bottom is “Sharing Buttons.” There are four different options. I changed mine to “icons only” from the “official” option. And, I changed my “sharing” prompt. “SHARING is sew sewcial” I hope it worked.
Blogging University recommends focusing my energy on one social network.
I’ve discovered that quilt bloggers are using Instagram as much as they use Facebook.
I haven’t settled on which network to focus on.
Do you see the tears dripping from these lovely icons? During the New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop, I learned how to add buttons to my sidebar. And, I shed a few tears getting them to work. I got these buttons from Carrie Loves. I wanted different colors to coordinate with my blog logo. That made me cry tears of joy.
Networking requires taking the next step: sharing other bloggers’ posts or links I find interesting. I can also share “status updates” about an ongoing project. I can ask my readers to help me. I can build personal connections with readers.
Asking a question is also one way to engage with readers.
WHAT ONE SOCIAL NETWORK SHOULD GET MY UNDIVIDED ATTENTION?
