January is a time for looking back at the prior year, our wins and losses. Favorite Episodes is a way for me to look back at what I’ve written in 2015 that was well received by my readers while diving into my blog stats and editorial calendar. Over the next few weeks, I will be posting little or no new original content. Instead I am reblogging some of my most popular posts from 2015 and developing a Favorite Episodes Season Three page in the process.
This post is written in response to Writing 101, Day 8: Expand a comment.
The other night before I went to bed, I was visiting with my fellow Blogging 201ers on The Commons for Blogging 201. The conversation was all about our assignment, Day Six: Dig Deep into a Social Network.
I currently use three social media platforms to promote my blog: Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. I have debated adding Instagram and Google+ to my social media mix and was hoping to find some conversation about both these platforms. I came across a post asking for advice and tips on using Twitter and commented:
I love Twitter – but I love sleep too. I just followed you on Twitter and tweeted your mushroom soup recipe. Would be happy to give you some tips. Will try to post tomorrow. Off to bed – doing better tonight it’s 215 am in my world last two nights was on here until 4ish.
As I commented, I realized I had an opportunity to multitask by turning my comments into a post, helping out a fellow Blogging 201er, completing a Writing 101 assignment, and auditing my own use of Twitter. Bestill my twittering tweeting heart.
