How can I use social media to effectively market my blog?

Whether it's Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or anything else, there's a surplus of ways for people to be connected to each other online, 24/7. For a brand, that's great news--social media helps you promote your content, increase your following, improve your brand recognition, and most of all, network and interact with your audience.

Social media is vital to a blogger's success.

Just like Books 1-4 of the Blogger Babes Blueprint series, Blog Social Media Rules: How to Create Buzz for Your Blog Effectively and Efficiently is filled with information on doing just that. With chapters focused on the nuances of the top seven social media sites, you'll learn to capitalize on every opportunity for your blog!

Can it really be that easy?

Heidi and Ponn offer an enjoyable and practical read with useful tips and details to unanswered questions such as:

  • What different skills do I need to develop for different social media channels?
  • How do I manage all my accounts?
  • Can I really use sites like LinkedIn and Pinterest to further my business?
  • How often should I post promotionally? What's the right balance between being social and being promotive?

Professional female bloggers tell it all in an easy and inspirational read.

High-profile fashion blogger Heidi Nazarudin of TheAmbitionista.com, and best-selling author and professional blogger Ponn Sabra are co-founders of BloggerBabes.com—a global network of female bloggers dedicated to blogging education and support. Through examples and personal case studies, this book gets into all their expertise of social media marketing.

Product description

Ever since the magic mirror erased his memory, my brother, Jonah, doesn't believe that we really visit different fairy tales. So it's a relief when the mirror sucks us into a story -- and this time, it's Beauty and the Beast!

Hoorah! Or, maybe not. When Jonah picks a rose from the Beast's garden, he messes up the story. The Beast is so angry he takes my brother prisoner... instead of Beauty! But if the Beast doesn't meet and fall in love with Beauty, then his curse will never be lifted and Jonah will be trapped in the palace forever!

Now I have to:
- Find Beauty
- Deal with a wicked fairy named Jax
- Restore Jonah's memory
- Play matchmaker

If I don't fix this mess in time, the situation could get pretty ugly...

30 Best Concerts in October in Phoenix - Phoenix New Times

Discounting all of the hullabaloo of Halloween at the end of the month, there are fall festivals to attend, tankards of German ales to quaff at Oktoberfest gatherings, pleasant weather to enjoy (no. really), and all the thrills and chills of the... Of course, you could also go to a concert any time in the next 30 days — and there are plenty of good ones to choose from. Frankly, October is pretty much wall-to-wall with “can't miss” gigs happening in Phoenix as the various cultural venues (ranging from the Scottsdale Center for the Arts to the Mesa Arts Center) awaken from their summertime slumber to host some... To wit: country megastar Garth Brooks is making a return to Phoenix after a 19-year absence for six (. ) shows, Madonna will bring her Rebel Heart Tour our way, venerated singer-songwriters like Sufjan Stevens and José González have dates... There's so much to choose from, in fact, that it proved a bit of a challenge to put together our monthly rundown of 25 concerts to see in Phoenix. As such, we've bumped the list up to 30 entries this month, each of which is worthy of your time and money. (And even more worthy choices during October can be found amid our extensive online concert listings. The moody, seductive sound of Civil Twilight is led by Steven McKellar's willowy tenor, which dips and flutters against moody backdrops, recalling Thom Yorke. But despite the band's penchant for graceful, slow-moving balladry, it plays with more finesse than Radiohead knockoffs like Snow Patrol or Travis. Civil Twilight builds tension by remaining keenly aware of its momentum: Guitars billow forth like geysers, but the trio also shows restraint, allowing quieter mid-tempo textures to linger and build. From that new base, they put out 2012's Holy Weather – the followup to their hit eponymous album – boasting the hit track, “Letters From the Sky,” which has been featured on everything from episodes of The Mentalist to WWE pay-per-views and made... Rascal Flatts - Friday, October 2 - Ak-Chin Pavilion. It’s all too easy to take a shot at Rascal Flatts in 2015. What’s easily remembered is the frosted tips, v-necked T-shirts, dismal awards show performances and saccharine, phoned-in singles of the mid-’00s, but what’s rarely mentioned is the... There’s a reason why their first seven records all went platinum, and it has nothing to do with a certain Mickey Mouse and his affiliates — the trio of Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney has been a Music Row powerhouse since their... I Feel Like A Woman. Pop country went from the flavor of the week to the desired medium for Nashville-based songwriter circles, and Rascal Flatts was right there at the forefront. Maybe that’s why they’ve become the go-to punching bag for both country fans and nonbelievers alike, some ever going wielding the ultimate weapon and labeling the trio as “the Nickelback of country. ” While no one deserves that black mark on their name, Rascal Flatts’ contribution to the current country landscape gets lost from time to time. Before the Sam Hunts and Jason Aldeans of the world, Rascal Flatts wrote sugary hooks that were deemed too saccharine for the honky-tonk crowd, yet it looks like they had the last laugh — so it goes when you’re the forerunner of a whole new wave... For a certain metal-loving crowd, Glenn Danzig is as good as it gets, metal-wise. For a period of time in the late-’80s, early-’90s, Daznig represented everything rad about metal: babes, martial arts, darkness, buried feelings, and, of course, some pretty badass riffs and songs. Danzig, the man responsible for the horror-punk legends the Misfits, started releasing solo albums in 1988, and he has at least four classic albums under his belt as a solo artist. Songs like “Mother,” “Am I Demon,” “She Rides,” and more hold a special place in the hearts and heads of many metal heads.

This woman was sitting at an outdoor table of a small restaurant/coffee-shop on the west side of Columbus Avenue at 73rd Street. It's the first time that I've seen anyone in this particular area (which is near a gym that I usually visit 2-3 times a week) with a laptop, and I was delighted to see that she had a Mac.... and not just any old Mac, but a Mac Powerbook.

One of the rare non-Apple laptops seen in an otherwise cool park full of cool people
Late in the afternoon on the last day in March 2009, I walked into Bryant Park, which is located behind the New York Public Library, between 41st and 42nd Street, facing Avenue of the Americas. There were several people reading and basking in the sun, a couple people typing on their laptop computers, and one chess game underway. I spent about half an hour wandering around to see what looked photo-worthy, and then wandered off to get some dinner... This woman was typing away on a laptop computer ... alas, it was not an Apple Powerbook. But maybe she doesn't know any better. Just think: if she had been typing on a Mac, her photo probably would have been published a thousand times by now! ***************** Even though this photo was taken in March 2009, Karen Bryan claims to have published it in a Nov 13, 2008 blog titled “'The Future of the Travel Blog' Presentation, Travel Blog Camp, London 11 November 2008."
