5 Tips on: HOW TO CONQUER SOCIAL MEDIA AS A NEW BLOGGER

Hello.

Do you remember me?

Yeah, I’m writing a blog post. Shock horror!

I’m sorry for being AWOL, but exams are taking over my life. Anyways, I’m going to stop apologising and get into the blog. So, earlier this month, I made a commitment that I wanted to get into the blogger community more. I was reading all of these posts about people meeting up with their blogger friends or talking to bloggers’ online.  And, I decided to make a Twitter account solely for my blog (not just my personal one), as well as this, I made a better Instagram for my blog because my old one was just a mess…

I’ll take this time to plug my socials: Instagram – instagram.com/atinablogs; Twitter – twitter.com/atinablogs

TIP (1) – JOIN TWITTER, this has changed my blog.  You can use Twitter to get involved in Twitter chats, follower chains etc and it will help you get exposure for your blog. As well as this, Twitter is a nice way to share what you are feeling that isn’t in a blog post. The amount of engagement on Twitter is very high, it is quite nice!

TIP (2) – HAVE A BLOGGING INSTAGRAM can display to people what type of content you upload on your blog. Try and upload good quality pictures because it will attract lots of people to your blog. It is such a useful social media tool because it can help you connect with brands and other bloggers.

TIP (3) – PIN, PIN, PIN on Pinterest. Pinterest is an absolutely wonderful tool and it can be done on the go, which I love so much! It is where I gather most of my ideas and photo prompts because it is so endless. I feel like you don’t even need to have a blog to use Pinterest, it is for everyone! On Pinterest, do not worry about the number of followers you have, focus on the views because those are the people who are actually pinning and viewing what you pin or post on Instagram. I use my Pinterest to share my blog photos or cover photos.

TIP (4) – DON’T FOLLOW TO UN-FOLLOW, this is every blogger’s pet peeve! If you follow someone and they follow you back, don’t immediately un-follow them. Even if they are a small blogger, they can produce amazing content (If I do say so myself…). Also, if someone says to you ‘f4f’ or ‘follow back?’ – follow them! I would suggest getting a follower’s app just to check your followers. This sounds really lame, but it is important to keep a good follow-to-follow ratio.

TIP (5) – REGULAR USE, personally, I check my social media for my blog every day; which is more than I can say about my uploading schedule. This is because things change regularly and you want to stay up-to-date. As well as this, it is good to be active so people know that you are a real follower and not just a bot. However, if you need to get off social media whether it be for your own mental health, DO IT! 

That’s all for now!

I hope you enjoyed some of these tips and this motivates you to kick-start your own blogging media.
