Pinterest-How I Pin

Pinterest is an amazing resource to drive traffic to your blog. Pinterest and Facebook are consistently fighting for the #1 spot for referrals to my blog.

Understanding Twitter-What is Twitter?

Wow, there’s a statement. Understanding Twitter. I don’t have a clue how to use twitter as a blogger. I have an account. I can click on the button at the bottom of posts and tweet it, just like I pin posts to Pinterest. But to say I’m getting the most out of it, no way. […]
