I’m a regular reader of Social Media Examiner’s blog and if you’d like to keep up with the changes in social media you may want to subscribe to it as well. A recent post with 39 blogging tips was rich with content and tips for anyone who blogs, whether you are just starting out or you have been blogging for years. I’ve also included posts about how increasingly difficult it is for the posts on your Facebook page to actually reach your fans’ news feeds. Although the information is a tad depressing, I think it’s more important that we stay informed. Finally, I include a link to All Twitter, which posted a fantastic infographic explaining when you should publish on each social media channel. So there you have it. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
