Attention Newbies: Learn more about social blogging. There are experts on this site....
I'm feeling really jazzed up today after a few posts in a discussion right here:
This is what I like about this site. You've got some experienced people here who have done the work with blogs, writing for article sites and with social media blogging. These topics can be difficult for the newbie to grasp.
I think that there are many newbies on this site who may feel sort of lost as to what they are suppose to be doing on sites like this. I know it's easy to many of you with lots of experience; but what about new people who come and their frame of reference is writing for, only, article and content sites. There is a difference.
Some people can really explain the nuances between the two.
I didn't realize the intricacies of how people are working social media into their campaigns to engage discussion across many platforms. And I imagine some come to the site, without a solid connection on other social media platforms and wonder if there is a place for them. I can only speak of my experience or lack thereof. When you are a newbie on the block it can feel sort of intimidating to jump into discussions with people who appear to have a lot in common. There needs to be more ebooks and courses on these type of issues.
After all, this is a developing field. And even for those who manage the site, I'm sure they want to know how to address these issues so that they don't lose people who are coming from the search engines.
If you're new to the site and the concept of interacting with others, go over and read from those who have responded thus far. And if you can help a newbie out, comment and give your input. And if you're newbie, ask questions. I think that you can get many of your questions answered. Thus far, the people commenting(and I hope more) are interacting with each other.
I'm off to find an image for this post. I just had to get this up while my neurons were fired up.
Well, obviously, I found an image. it's fire. I just noticed that it had a heart in it. How fitting for this post. I really enjoy finding images to go with posts. Morguefile didn't disappoint this time.
