Our blog is three years old in February – we can’t believe it, the time has gone so quickly. I was just 14 months when it was launched, I am now four!
One of the parts of blogging we love most Social Media. It is a very important part of our blog, and we believe everyone should have a presence across all channels. There are different reasons for everyone – for the teens in our family, it a huge part of their lives to connect them socially to their friends. Lea uses it to connect with other fans of her music idols – and has actually met up with several groups of online friends to go to gigs across the country. She is also now using it to promote her own music.
Luke uses it to display and promote his incredible art and drawings, and has had connections – and even commission requests from around the world!
I am too young yet to enjoy Social Media – but I love looking at our Instagram feed with Mummy – it has great memories of our lives. It is our favourite platform and we love sharing our photos with our friends and followers.
In todays busy world, using social media can take up soooooo much of your time – especially for bloggers and small businesses. There may be times when you could do with a little help with your channels, and there are many ways to get it.
Not everyone agrees that help with social media is ‘right’ or necessary. We believe – as we do with everything – that it is totally, completely and utterly each persons choice. How they do things and why they do them is down to them.
Some options to give you a little extra help are scheduling social media posts, joining in Facebook support groups, (Mummy runs a little one – Blog and Social Media Promotion), and boosting interaction on Instagram. The gold old fashioned way of interacting, liking, commenting and building online relationships are also super important.
