Random rants

How social media helped me as a blogger

I had always loved to write and a blog is one of the best places to pursue that love. After starting this blog a few years back, I had been writing random stuff since then but was not doing it the way I had wanted until recently.

It was a resolution (if I can say so) to ‘blog’ to my satisfaction starting this year and I am happy that I have been able to do so as of now. More so because I have been getting a good response to my posts!

The positive response to my blog also made me think seriously about using the social media to further the reach of my blog and connect to more like-minded people.

I started with tweeting and sharing my blog posts with and without relevant hashtags and the results were pleasantly surprising to me.

Until now, I had only heard how powerful twitter was but never experienced or seen it. However, that’s not the case anymore, after actually using it in a way I had never done before. I have been able to reach out to and connect to people with similar interests from literally every part of the world and have been lucky enough to learn so much about my interests which in all probability, I could never have.

Pinterest is another such tool which I had hugely underestimated. And Instagram is another one.

Encouraged by the positive results in terms of visitor count and more importantly, returning visitor count, I finally thought of taking one more step towards in the social media direction and after a lot of contemplation, I finally came up with a facebook page for my blog.

With this another step forward, I hope to get one more step closer to reaching out to more and more people through my blog and to connecting with more like-minded people.
