Having a great cultural media presence can do wonders for your blog, so figuring out the best way to maintain that is one of my top blogging priorities. It’s not hard to do extremely; I mean, you have to post just! But one decision I’ve struggled with because the beginning of my blogging days is whether I should separate my blog and personal social media accounts.
Initially, I created another accounts on nearly every platform. I figured that would let me create a far more professional presence, and I thought getting supporters would be easy quite. Ha, that was not at all the case. It was especially hard knowing my own accounts had hundreds of followers that I possibly could be promoting to already, while my new accounts had single digit followings. Some grew faster than others Eventually, which led me to deleting those that became hard to keep up.
I think I’ve finally resolved which accounts to keep split, and I needed to talk about about why I made those decisions for those fighting the same concern! I created my first Twitter years before a blog was began by me, meaning my original Twitter accounts was filled with senior high school friends; fundamentally, people who could caution less about my new post on the Genesis Framework.
- Don’t be boring
- Website and server
- Sign up for an account with the web host
- Program all quote, service, and contact forms to send automated notifications to your email
I understood I wouldn’t get much with this crowd, so I created a separate take into account my blog and I’ve trapped with that decision. This account is utilized by me to share my posts, share posts from other bloggers, and post organically to keep things from getting to promonition-y. By having this separate account, I’ve been able to grow a following of bloggers and blog-readers who are interested in my content, and will share it using their own followers. Overall, I’d definitely suggest creating a separate account if you curently have an individual one! I’ve gone and forth on this one back, and for a while, having only 1 account wasn’t a lot of an issue.
I almost never submitted about my blog on Instagram because I didn’t see a reason to. You can’t easily connect to your site articles, and developing a graphic that blends well with your feed can take a lot of time. Recently though, I’ve been participating in sponsored campaigns and promoting my blog more regularly, and it was becoming more important that I maintain a certain style throughout my feed. This account can be used by me to figure out my Instagram style, post openly about my blog, and create a following completely comprised of users and bloggers that are interested in my content.
I would absolutely suggest creating another account if you’re feeling uncomfortable about certain articles, or kept back again from promoting your blog. It’s a little complicated to perform two accounts (constantly logging in and out isn’t the best situation), but I think it’ll be worth it over time.
I don’t think I’ve heard of anyone who created a separate Facebook take into account their blog, which means this one is simple fairly. The main decision is whether or not to make a Facebook page for your blog, and all I can say is, it won’t hurt! I seldom post to my Facebook page, simply because I don’t personally use Facebook very often.
This is the main one account I’ve never duplicated, and I believe that decision helped me develop it to my most popular social mass media account today. The great thing about Pinterest is that you can separate your site life from your individual interests through boards, and your followers can choose which boards they want to keep up with. For example, my college friends might not care much about my blogging tips board, while my blogging friends may not want to follow my university board. Whether someone’s following one of your boards or all 30 (I understand, I’ve narrowed down a little) doesn’t really affect you or your numbers, so there’s really no need to have a separate account.
One thing you are able to do to get this to easier for your fans is make organized planks with concise names so they can decide those they’ll find interesting. Oh, and sign up for group boards! They’re great places to really get your articles out to new eyes, and gain more followers for your own similar boards.
