Today’s assignment: if you’re active on a social network, set up Publicize to link the account to your blog or add a widget highlighting your profile. If you’re not, explore your social options to see whether one might be helpful.
To link to WordPress OR NOT. Who knows.
I was actually considering linking my twitter to WordPress until I had my first bad experience with Twitter last week.
I work at one of those places that you do have to worry about what you say or what ‘brand’ you are talking about. Since I am proud of where I work and what I do, I sent out a tweet about a news press release that was met by, I guess those people that like to get you going, so to speak. I tweeted additional information only to be met with childish responses referring to quackery. Oh no–don’t go there please. When I tweeted I was done with the tread, the response was “I lost!” Lost? I didn’t know it was a competition. Next time, if there is one, I’ll know better than to respond to a person who obviously wants a feud and no enlightenment.
So, until I retire, hopefully in 2-3 years, I wont’ be connecting my social media with Twitter. I did notice that once you do, people have access to your blog. No, I don’t want that yet. I’m not there for followers. I follow 230 people or companies, and have only tweeted 476 times. I will however, post my name here. @julialwavesHi2. Feel free to join my hardly ever tweet list.
Funny story about the name I picked. “Julia” anything is always taken. I like the ocean [waves] although I am not a beach person. Waves encompasses both the ocean waves and waving Hi. I had to delete my first tweet name, hence the 2. [ Julia L waves HI 2]. That’s not the funny part. My first twitter name had waves45 in it. Someone asked me if I was ‘IN’ the Army waves during the war, because of the 45. I had to confess, no, I was 45 years old at the time I decided on the name.
Well, that’s it. How did you decide to link your social media with WordPress?
Thanks for stopping by.
