#Shelfie: 2 Tips for Social Media Accounts


This week on Shelfies is a post about social media. If you are like me, you have a lot going on in your life. From kids to blogging, to just getting things like laundry and dinner taken care of.  And we wont even talk about this book I am writing.  With all of this going on it can be very hard to get your social media accounts going.  Getting burned out is no joke (I speak from personal experience on that one) and it can be a nasty thing to deal with.  So here are some tips that I have found and used over the years. 

Do you have a tip not mentioned below?  Let us know about in the comments!
