Are You A Blog / Social Media Spammer?

You could have the best blog ever.

Be the most inspirational, talented blogger out there.

But if you spam people repeatedly, you will only frustrate your existing audience.

No one wants to be bombarded repeatedly with the same blog posts, updates or statuses, time and time again.

are you a blog or social media spammer

Utilising social media to get your posts / products across to a wider audience is essential for getting yourself out there. But so to is doing it in a manner that engages and entices your audience to seek more, rather than turn away.

Whilst it may seem a good idea to use plug ins or widgets which will auto retweet your old/popular blog posts, ensure you are not spamming your followers.

Once, twice or even 3 times over a week is one thing, 6 times or more of the same blog posts everyday is spamming.

Some tips to avoid spamming

1. Variety is the spice of life ~ republishing the same post numerous times everyday will get spammy, no post or update is that important

2. Utilise various platforms ~ remember you want to reach new audiences, not bombard existing ones

3. Timing is everything ~ schedule posts to be shared at different times, you don’t want facebook, twitter, Google + etc all showing the same posts at the same time to the same people!

4. Be personal ~ don’t make it all automatic, write your own tweets and engage with people

Blogging and social media are supposed to be personal turn off the auto and start engaging with people!

How Does Your Garden Grow

There are so many signs that autumn is on her way.

Summer and autumn seem to be fighting between themselves as to who shall triumph over the next few weeks, based on a walk we had over the weekend I’d say autumn is just about nudging summer out the way.

Berries are popping up everywhere, adding splashes of colour to the greenery.

Wildflowers are adding some delicate colour among the thorns and bramble bushes

The purple wild flowers above reminded me of a few fun photos I took the other week in the garden.

I have a patch of wild flowers growing just outside the kitchen, when the bubble blower blew some bubbles on them I just had to take a few snaps!

Wild flowers and bubbles, a perfect combination.
