Social Media Time!!

Happy Tuesday fellow bloggers!! On this Educate Me Tuesday, I wanna talk about those pretty lil' social media buttons that most (if not all) of us have on our blogs! When I first started out blogging back in January, I saw that most of you guys have a Facebook page, a Twitter page, a Pinterest page, email and so on. So I decided to create a Facebook page just for my blog... I already had a Twitter and Pinterest page, which I felt comfortable sharing those personal social media sites with the rest of the bloggy blog world! Besides posting links for my current posts on my Facebook page, it's another great way to create traffic with new readers, which many of you already know.

BUT, what if your number of "Likes" on your Facebook page is stuck? Or how bout the number of followers on your Twitter? How about those fancy stats on your blogger page? Do you notice the pageviews changing? Or even notice anything at all??

I really didn't pay any mind to these things for a few different reasons... (1) I have no clue what those statistics mean (pageviews per browser... blah blah), and (2) I really started this blog so I can stop and appreicate the small things! BUT I honestly didn't think that I would be so wrapped up in this amazing blogging world with ah-mazzzzzing beautiful people! Now it's actually one of the best part of my days... to see what you all write each day, AND to meet new bloggers and discover their hot topics!!

SO... after talking to a superb friend of mine from grad school, he shared with me one of his own websites he created... which has an ultimate goal of helping you get more more traffic on your website, through the social media websites we all have... Facebook and Twitter. He can help you increase your LIKES and FOLLOWERS so that you're getting more exposure and traffic through your blog!! Check it out!! The Facebook page is www.CustomFacebook.biz and the Twitter page is www.CustomTwitter.biz. They don't need any passwords for either page... just your link to your social media site!

Check it out, and see what you think! Anybody else have other ideas for increasing your traffic? This is all still new to me, and I'm still super excited about my Sponsor Swaps!! Holler at your gooorl if you're interested :)

Also new to the blogging world and trying to increase my traffic. I may have to do this as well. My traffic is always the heaviest when I do link ups. That's definitely my word of advice for anyone, DO LINKUPS!

Love your blog!
