Wow! It is the last day of The Heart of Gratitude Journey!! It is DAY 21! How are you feeling? I for one, am feeling AMAZING! (even though I miss my hubs a ton!) This has been a wonderful journey that has truly humbled and hugely inspired me, in ways I never imagined! I have a little more to add, but I'll save that for the FINAL blog post this evening. Dana & I have a grip in store for you today! We both are having giveaways and lots of fun stuff all day! So yeah, let's finish this journey with our hearts bursting with gratitude!
A tip or two to keep your posts OUT of the spam trash can...
~ DO NOT POST A LINK ALL ALONE!
Add a description to it in the box above where it reads Add a comment... (see picture)
Adding a description will help it be searchable within that community. Adding descriptive words that others might search for will ensure YOUR post comes up when someone is looking for what you posted about and get traffic TO YOUR BLOG TOO!
~ DO NOT POST IN EVERY COMMUNITY YOU BELONG TO WITH RAPID FIRE!
Sure, you wrote something spectacular! Sure everyone you know, and strangers even, need this info! However, each time you share in rapid succession all within minutes of each other you are telling the Google bots that you are a spammer and everyone knows Google hates spammers.
I suggest you post in the one or two communities you KNOW it is most relevant to the day you write the post and then then next day you post in a couple more, and then next day one or two more.
if you belong to that many communities that your post is THAT relevant to, you may consider running your own community and build an audience!
~WRITE YOUR DESCRIPTIONS TO SUIT THE SOCIAL PLATFORM YOU ARE USING AT THE MOMENT!
send a link to your blog post to each and every spot all at once is nothing more than spam. Doing the exact same thing to every spot, Facebook, Twitter, G+, Instagram and so on just makes it look like you never read anything in those places. Try customizing your share to match each place, Twitter & G+ & Instagram love hashtags, Facebook - not so much. Twitter likes it short and sweet, G+ you can write a BOOK!
I hope these tips will help those of you whose posts may get trashed, are ending up in the "spam" folder, or who may not be getting the traffic you desire.

"Hey Heather, where have you been hiding, under a rock?"
I ask myself this because I was introduced to this fabulous Social Sharing Plugin a couple days ago... thank you ! ...and in ignorance I said, have you guys been sharing this? IT IS GENIUS!
Well of course they have - I see now that many of you have been chatting about it, how robust it is and how good it makes YOU look across each social platform!
Honestly, these guys and have created the answer to all the problems I was having and had no idea how to fix them.
With a few clicks here and a well
It looks great and they, my fabulous friends who share all my works of heART with the world, do not need a PHD in social media usage!
I am very thankful that I was able to crawl out from under the rock I was clearly hiding under and see THE LIGHT of this fabulous sharing tool!
I will also say, I may not have ever been ready back then when you all were so on top of things!
Please read this blog post regarding the greatest social sharing tool ever created (well that is just MY opinion) and let them know that Heather crawled out from under the rock to tell you about it. If you decide you want to use it - trust me - you will not regret it! BUT, if you walk away without it, you will be asking yourself this question next week!!!!!
