It’s time to teach that old dog some new tricks.

 

That old dog I’m referring to is social media.

 

Sure, you’re already blogging, and on Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Facebook, and more. Great.

 

But I’m telling you — there’s more to social media than meets the eye. The final chapter on social media hasn’t been written.

 

When I kicked off my writing business in April, I decided to use social media my way.

 

I approached these overused networks as if I’d never heard of them. I made my own rules. I set different expectations. You could say I wrote my own chapter on social media marketing.

Top 10 Blogs for Authors

Top 10 Blogs for Authors | Scriveners' Trappings | Scoop.it
Serious writers, who have experienced some level of success, when probed, will reveal that they have done their homework.

 

They continuously read various magazines and blogs for authors, not just to help them improve their writing, but to ensure that they stay on top of the latest developments and opportunities.

Creating Blog Posts 101 | Scriveners' Trappings | Scoop.it

A comprehensive article on the subject, "how to create a Blog post." It gives you the procedures to be adopted to produce structured and professional articles... an amazing post! [note: Martin Gysler]

 

Content

 

This is the most important part of you blog post because it’s what your visitors have come for, so if you want them to enjoy it and come back, you need to make sure it’s up to a good standard. Having amazing knowledge is one thing, but if you can’t manage to organize it in a way that is easily understandable to your readers, then it’s completely wasted.

 

Planning

 

Before you even open up your website, you need to get yourself some good fashion pen and paper and start taking notes. Even if you don’t know the exact title of your post, you should atleast know what it’s going to be about, so put that in a circle in the middle of the page and work out from there with a spider diagram...
