Should you be on every social media platform as a blogger?

This blog post has been on my mind for some time and I decided today is the day to blog about it. Many bloggers wonder how they could possibly manage being on all social media platforms without overworking themselves. The last time I counted, there are about 7 active social media platforms and I am happy to say I have an account on all platforms but I don’t post regularly on all of them.

 

Should you be on every social media platform as a blogger?

Should you be on every social media platform as a blogger? Well my answer is yes. You should be on as many social media platforms as you can manage, just so you have your online presence on these platforms. You don’t have to be active on all the social media platforms you are on. There is no way I can post regularly on all the many social networks available. The best way to go about this is to pick a few you are interested in and focus on those platforms.

Top Social Media Platforms

At the time of writing this post, the top social media platforms are –

 

Instagram

I have a love and hate relationship with Instagram. It is the hardest social media platform to grow because almost everyone on there plays the follow and unfollow game. I still like it and will keep using it as long as it stays active. Brands love it, so I have to keep at it. I was late to the Instagram game. I didn’t set up my account immediately and when I did set it up, I neglected it for many years. So I am currently playing catch up.

Instagram is where the money is, many bloggers with about 10,000 followers on average, get as much as £300 for a single shot or story, so if you ever plan to make money online, Instagram is the social media platform to start with. You can find me on Instagram here – Fashion and Style Police.

 

Facebook

I love Facebook so much. It is definitely my favourite social media platform. It is a lot more relaxed than Instagram and the Facebook ads do help grow your following. I also find it more real than Instagram. People genuinely comment and like your posts on Facebook and not to get anything back in return like on Instagram. I also find that you get more regular people on Facebook.

I have been on Facebook for many years now and set up my Facebook Page, the same time in 2012 when the first blog post went live. You can find my page here – Fashion and Style Police.

 

Twitter

Twitter is all about chit and chat and it can get a bit noisy but I like the noise. It is a good way to spend 10 minutes. I have been on Twitter for many years and I have succeeded in growing my following. Hashtags really come in handy on Twitter unlike other social media platforms.

I tweet everyday and thanks to Buffer, I can schedule tweets in advance and plan my content for the platform. I also scout for jobs for my blog and my digital marketing career. If you are after growing your net worth, Twitter is a good place to start. You can find me here – @fashionstylepol

Pinterest

Pinterest is another interesting social media platform I am currently loving. I have recently started pinning a lot and I enjoy how my feed now looks and the amount of engagement and views I am getting. The views are also pouring over to my blog which is great. If  you are after a bit of blog traffic and interesting photos, then Pinterest is the platform for you.

I am late to the Pinterest game so I am slowly growing my followers but I am not that bothered about those numbers to be honest. I am more interested in the engagement and views I get because it spills over to the blog which is great. You can fine me on Pinterest here – Fashion and Style Police pins.

 

Snapchat

Snapchat is a platform I am registered on. I got an account with my name on it just incase I need it in future but I can’t remember the last time I went on it. It is not a social media platform I am interested in growing at the moment.

 

YouTube

I sent a YouTube channel last year after many years of contemplation. There are a few short videos on my channel. I have a few more I need to edit and upload. That should be done in a few days. It is another platform I currently don’t really have the time for but I am hoping to upload maybe 2 or more videos a month. You can watch my first YouTube video here.

 

Linkedin

Linkedin is a professional social media platform and I use it for just that. So you won’t find me chatting away on there like I do on Twitter. I use it to network and find like minds. I also scout for jobs on there and follow relevant people in my industry. You can find me on – Fashion and Style Police.

 

 

As you can see, I am not active on all the social media platforms, but I have an account on all of them. I think that is the smart thing to do as you never really know which one you may be interested in and you don’t want someone else using your blog name on a social media platform. That creates a lot of confusion. So if you have not done so already, register your blog name on all social media platforms. Also, ensure you use the same photo on all of them, so it is clear you are the same person. That is a great way to distinguish your brand.

 

Are you on every social media platform? Which is your favourite and why? Do sound off in the comments section below.

Thanks for reading and commenting, have a lovely week ahead.

Outfit Post – British Fashion Blogger

As a British Fashion Blogger, I like to explore as many British Fashion Brands as possible. Over the years, I have found some amazing British Fashion brands and I tend to wear quite a few of their pieces. I love exploring when it comes to fashion and beauty, which is why my wardrobe is full of very different pieces and accessories. Variety is the spice of life!

The weather has been incredibly hot in Cheshire these last few weeks. It has been so hot and uncomfortable that wearing any sort of outfit feels like a chore. Which is why I like to wear as little as possible. I got this t-shirt in Macy’s while holidaying in the US, and I am happy I finally got around wearing it. It is dead comfy and it is a great fit. I like my t-shirt hanging loose, especially in the warm summer months. I can seeing myself wearing this t-shirt a lot this season.

The cropped leggings is also a new wardrobe addition. I love wearing leggings as I find them dead comfy and easy to style. But these last few weeks have made it almost impossible to wear them. The weather is too warm for anything but shorts. So I think this cropped leggings is a smart invention for leggings lovers like me. You get to wear a cropped version and stay cool.

I think this cropped basic leggings are a must have for any summer wardrobe. It is a stylish way of looking good and staying comfortable while this heatwave is on. You can dress it up or down, depending on the occasion. I had some errands to run, so I went for my comfy sandals.

What do you think of this look?  Are you into leggings as much as I am?

5 Days On YouTube & An Unboxing Video

I have been active on YouTube for 5 days now and I am loving it! And I now have an Unboxing Video live on there. I have had my YouTube Channel since 2012 when Fashion and Style Police was born. But I never got around to putting up video content for some weird reason. I have finally decided to give YouTube a go and I am loving every bit of it. I now wish I started a lot sooner but it is better late than never.

Vlogging has been fun so far. It is something new and different. I have kind of mastered blogging which is why I decided to step into YouTube as well. I have bene learning quite a lot about video editing and all the act of publishing video content. It has been a learning curve for me and I am super thankful for my MacBook Pro. It has been the learning process a lot easier.

My second YouTube video is now live on my channel, It is all about unboxing the Nokia Steel Activity & Sleep watch. I shot this unboxing video on my MacBook Pro and I am happy with the quality of the video. I still have a lot to work on and there is always room for improvement. But for a second video and my channel being only 5 days old, I am happy with my progress.

Here is the link to the second video –

And here is a link to my first video if you missed it –

YouTube is fun. I can see how easy it can be to get obsessed with it all. My first love will always be blogging. I love writing and nothing can ever take that place in my heart. However, YouTube is one platform I am looking to explore to the fullest.

If you haven’t subscribe to my channel please do. I aim to publish videos as often as I can.

Do you vlog? What are your thoughts on it? What do you think of this Nokia Steel Activity & Sleep Watch?
