#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! 
Start at the beginning of the week
One of the best things to do for Instagram is to take pictures during one full day. That way you already have them done. Then all you have to do is post them throughout the week.  This makes your life easier because you are not trying to get 7+ photos done during the time that you wish to post them.  This also helps that if you are on the go a lot you already have the pictures at your fingertips. 

Doing posts in advance is a great way to save time and your brain cells. There is a wonderful site called Trello where you can create content and have them post it for you.  

Keep it short but understandable
I know that I am not the only one that goes to post something on Twitter only to find out that you are a million characters over that 140 they allow.  Then we have to go back and figure out how to get our point across without sounding like we don't even know our language.  The best thing to do for this is the following. If you have a large post you want to talk about. Either A. put 1/20 < at the end of part of your post. This way it would mean that this is message 1 of 20.  Then you would simply reply to your own message adding the next part until you were done. 

The next option is to write it in pages (mac/ios) window or as a note and screen shot it (take a picture) that way you can then crop it down and have it all there at once as a picture. This way you can put the most needed info in your post and the rest in the bottom.
