Millennial with no Social Media Skills

I have been trying to spend more time on my blog lately and it’s been a lot of fun. However, with work it can sometimes get a little stressful as well. You know, just having one more thing to do when you get home. Most recently I have been working on my social media influence. Because of the way I write about my family, I can’t exactly promote my blog to friends! I have to admit, though, I am pretty terrible at social media. Honestly, my lack of social media skills is quite embarrassing for my age. It should be second nature to me but I just never really got into it. I feel all of my friends rely on these platforms just to live their own personal daily lives yet I have no idea how to even work them. Previously I had no desire to learn, but with my attempt to better promote my blog I now have a reason to actually learn about the different types of social media and how to use them. One of the hardest things I’ve had to figure out is images, which I am obviously still trying to sort through, but I’m having a lot of fun learning. Even if my blog goes no where, at least I have this new hobby to learn and enjoy myself. Thank you for bearing with me as I figure all of this out an please feel free to help with any useful tips!

    social media platforms are constantly changing things around. you get good with them simply by using them a lot.

    social media isnt everything– i used it, i dont now (except forums and wordpress for the most part.) while social education platforms are something im potentially excited about, i dont bother with twitter, facebook, pinterest, (instagram?) youve been blogging since what, august? and youve got 47 followers. you post with incredible regularity– youre doing a stellar job with this.

      Thank you very much! Yes, I am still very new! It’s so true that social media is always changing on us, and honestly I don’t think I’m utilizing wordpress enough. So that’s an area I need to expand upon. Well thank you for the kind words, it’s always nice to hear that I’m doing something right!

    I find this totally relatable. I used to be horrible with social media, and all my friends thought it was crazy that I didn’t really use it. With a little practice and time, it all gets a little less confusing and easier.

      Thank you, I’m glad I’m not the only one! I do feel I’ve already gotten so much better at it, but am still terrible haha. I’ll get there, I hope! Like you said, I just need to spend a little more time with it.

    Pinterest is great for non-direct to family/friends promo. Also starting a new twitter account/insta and following/commenting on people’s things in your niche. I just started my blog but I intend to do a lot of talking on social media strategy there (it’s my real-life job haha!) check it out and follow if you’d like to learn more! Generationtrygirl.com
