Social Media & Blogging Checklist
One of the hardest things to get to grips with, when starting a blog, is the marketing and publicity. You are the editor, publicist, designer, and more when you create your own blog! And if you want to make a go of it, you have to make the effort with each and every blog post. Which is why I have made this free checklist!
I know from experience that blogging can be a tough business. After three years of blogging, I saw rapid improvements when I started to connect my social media accounts to my blog, and posted daily on most, if not all, of them.
The best social media sites for blogging, in my case at least, have been Twitter & Instagram. I am slowly growing my Instagram, mostly because I finally got a decent camera and some editing software! I’ve also heard great things about Pinterest, which I’m also getting addicted too! And I want to make more of an effort with Facebook.
When my blog was hosted on Blogger it was very easy to share my posts on Google+ as well. But now I have to share everything individually to draw an audience and keep my followers updated. It’s important to do this across all channels! Otherwise no one will know where to find your blog and you won’t draw an audience.
Free Printable & Pin
As such I have a little checklist printed on my desk that I can check off every time I post a blog post online! Today I include it in this post as well!
As a Free Printable, and as a Pin for any Pinterest accounts!
It’s a great way to keep track of where your audience is coming from as well as meeting other bloggers! Twitter chats are great for this! Pins are great for inspiration! Instagram is fab for chatting and interacting with other bloggers and Facebook is a wonderful platform to share your blog posts with friends and family!
I hope this printable helps you to get the most out of your blog and see it grow! Let me know what you think! Have fun!
