When I started blogging I quickly learned that getting a Twitter account is a must in the blogging world. Through this easy social media platform I´ve gotten in touch with so many different bloggers, creating a lovely blogging community!
Whenever I´ve written a new blog article, I always use Twitter to tell the world about it, and it´s definitely worth it, as there are always many who visit my blog who are referrals from Twitter.
There is however one social media platform that I still haven´t use to promote my blog, and that´s Facebook. I do have a personal Facebook, but I rarely use it, and well, I´m not sure if I want to have another account as well.. But I guess I have to admit that Facebook is and still will be an important social media tool for my blog.
This infographic gives you a clear view of how important social media tools can be for a blogger, and shows how many writers find that their blogs are being taken more seriously, which is great news!
Though there are many bloggers in Norway, there is still a bias towards bloggers, but I really hope that blogging will become more accepted in the Norwegian culture, as this is the future! We are communicating in new ways, and blogs are our way of having a voice in a confusing world.
By being smart and using various social media tools, we can increase our site stats, get more comments, but more importantly, we´ll get more lovely readers who might become cherished blog friends!
