This article is about social media and blogging coming together. It gives you tips on how you can tie your social media world into your blogging world. It explains why you would want to do this and the reason for that is because social media tends to be so popular that it gives blogs more attention, resulting in receiving more followers. The number one tip she discusses is how your social media icons should be at the top of your blogging page. Social media is so dominant in today’s society that it is almost necessary in order to make things/people more popular and successful. It is a creative tool to use, especially in advertising. Basically, each tip talks about what social media sites should be used and connected to your blog in order of importance. These tips are useful for all bloggers and that is why this article is so useful. I will use this article in my paper to show the importance of social media today and how it can be used to improve your blog. I will also use it to show how these social media sites are useful for gaining exposure, which often helps people get famous these days. After using these tools for exposure, the blog can begin to generate money, which is the second half of my thesis statement.
