Aside from that, I found this post so informative.

  1. This was a great post, all of the tips were very useful in my opinion. I think the last tip about not over committing to ten different social media platform is the best idea. I myself (and im sure everyone else) reads their favorite blog post about everyday or every other day. I take a lot of enjoyment in there being new content up everyday. Now if the author started to fall behind on his blog because he was juggle other his other social media, I would most likely get bored and go to new blog that was much more consistent with updates. I also like tip number one because in an era where so much interaction happens online you want to have a strong connection with other online users to help support and build the community around you.
