For anyone who has been following the blog in the last 5ish months, you will know that I’ve been working on Pinterest. While I’m not skyrocketing, I am seeing growth, and I’m pretty happy with it! So, I’ve now moved to working on… Continue reading
Hi everyone! For anyone following my blogging updates, you will know that I’ve been spending the last few months tackling and investing some time in Pinterest. I’m feeling like I have more of a handle on it, and a bit more focus! My attention is now on Flipboard- I have to say, even if I wasn’t blogging, I would keep Flipboard. There are quite a few magazines that I follow, including several history and style. I’m enjoying being able to save/share those “official” posts with anything else I want. (I share a lot of my favourite posts from other bloggers there!), without being crammed full of just pictures.
So, if you have a moment, come and find me on Flipboard! I’m always looking to connect with my readers, and there is something for everyone 🙂
Pinterest is a hot topic in the blogging world. I think it’s calmed down in the actual world, but it still consumes hours upon hours of bloggers’ lives and it’s very much considered an integral part of blogging for many people. Each form of social media is a living and breathing animal that behaves however it’s creators want (which is completely unbeknownst to the rest of us). In my quest to educate myself, I’ve tried to find as much information as I could about Pinterest, and after much thought, these are the conclusions that I arrived at!
I am by no means an expert in social media or running a blog, but I have learned quite a bit in the almost three years that I’ve had my blog. There are countless courses in how to boost your traffic with Pinterest, create the perfect Instagram story, and increase your mail list by offering something for free. However, most of these are not free and those that are usually land you on a mailing list that you can’t unsubscribe from no matter how hard you try. Today I’m sharing my social media tips that have worked for me – I’m no expert but in the past year and a half I’ve spent a lot of time trying out different things,
Sometimes I think that I’m pretty up on what the cool kids are into- streets ahead, you might say-, and sometimes I am years behind and have literally no idea what’s going on. Reading has always been a pretty huge part of my life, so obviously I’ve been avidly using GoodReads to catalogue, research, and review all of the books that I read, listen to, and want to find. However, in the span of about three days I was introduced to not one but two new social networks for reading and I have no idea how I hadn’t heard of them before now! Here is a quick intro and review of LibraryThing and Litsy, to hopefully spur you on in your reading pursuits!
Happy Saturday- this is a short but happy post! I’ve started a group Pinterest board for travel, and I’m happy to add anyone to it. You may pin up to three pins a day, and share as many pins from others as you like! Any travel related pins can be shared here- travel guides, to-do lists, tips, questions, memories, stories, whatever you would like.
You can find the blog here at Travel- Global (Group Board), and you can join the board by emailing me at email@example.com with the subject line “Group Travel Board” OR leave your email address in the comments down below!
I’m looking forward to seeing everyone there!
Now that I am spending a decent amount of time and effort on Instagram and I’m slowly connecting with people, I thought I would do a monthly round up of the most popular posts on my Instagram account! Although most of the pictures I post are related to the blog post of that day, I will try to give a little more background into the image itself. This was supposed to be the top five pictures but of course there was a three way tie in the fourth spot, so you get six! And if you would like to connect on Instagram, please leave your Instagram handle in the comments!
Sooooooo, it’s been a slow start but the blog finally has…
Instagram!!! I can’t promise to be up on there every day, but I will be posting regularly. Some posts will be related to the blog, and some will just be what’s happening to me. Time to reveal my secret life… Just kidding, my secret life is me reading and dancing all of the time! Anyhoo, feel free to follow me to keep up, I will be happy to follow back. If your blog has an instagram, please leave it below in the comments. I’m looking forward to connecting with everyone!
And now An Historian About Town is on Twitter! You can find me here– feel free to follow me and tweet at me. I’m looking forward to interacting with everyone, and following everyone’s Twitter, and hopefully I see everyone on there 🙂
Hello all! An Historian About Town is slowly moving forward on social media, beginning with Pinterest! You can find me here at An Historian About Town, it will have most everything pinned from my posts (that makes sense to pin). It currently only has a few posts worth of pins, but I will be working in the upcoming weeks to pin as much of my older posts as possible! I will also be pinning everything from my new posts going forward. If you are on Pinterest, please feel free to follow me for some more blogging and lifestyle adventures! I’m looking for people to follow, so please comment with your username!
In the future, I will also be working on an Instagram account, and possibly Twitter and/or Facebook. Stay tuned!
