Let's Get Social ♥

Hello! I thought I would write a different kind of post today, I would say this is another blogging tip post, one of the more exciting and productive tips I could give any blogger, two words.. SOCIAL MEDIA! I have had so many brilliant opportunities arise from social media, such as Twitter, Instagram and Lookbook. 
In my opinion Twitter should be every Blogger's wing man (or wing woman?... whatever). Personally, it has been the best way of getting myself noticed and getting some credit for my blog posts, even from the brands I am writing about. If you don't have a Twitter account for your blog then I highly recommend you create one, it takes seconds to set up and once you get going it is so easy to keep on top of. Even if you just post general day to day tweets, witty tweets or just about your latest blog posts, it is a great way to widen your audience and show off your personality to everyone. Since having twitter I have won competitions by simply retweeting and favouriting companies tweets. I have even had companies contact me and tell me how much they have loved my latest blog posts about their products and offered me to review some products for them. 
Just remember to keep a border line, nobody likes it when people keep tweeting and demanding attention to their blog every 5 minutes, if your tweet gets noticed, great, if not, don't give up just keep doing what your doing, you'll get noticed eventually! Another great thing about Twitter is you meet so many lovely people through it, I have become friends with quite a few bloggers recently, it's great, everyone has the same interests and ideas.
I don't use my Instagram as much for my blog, I don't have my blog linked in it as nobody from my town knows it exists, however, I still put up most of my blog pictures and have it linked on my blog page. I love it for following my favourite fashion and beauty bloggers and letting you all see parts of my life which aren't just beauty products.

Here are all my social media links, don't forget to add yours in the comments below, I love seeing all your Instagram's and Tumblr's!

  1. Great post and I love the pictures :) I've never loved social media (weird for a blogger, right?) because people from my school and local area just seem to use Facebook to brag and/or judge other people! But now that I've been blogging for a little while, I'm starting to love Twitter and Instagram. I'll be following your accounts as soon as I'm back on my phone!
