Social Media Blogger Warnings

Social Media Blogger Warnings | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

This tongue-in-cheek post is about social media blogger “Pain in the Neck” warnings and not about digital identity or what I have done so far to grow my blog traffic like you probably expected.

 

~If English is not your first language, tongue-in-cheek means “not serious” or “in humor”.~

 

Unnecessary Social Media Blogger “Pain in the Neck” Warnings I Could Have Used…

 

Fellow social media blogger, you probably already know that blogging is hard to do WELL when we fell “UNWELL”. Creativity is hard when we are in pain.
