How to excel at social media

29 Jun

So you want to be a social media guru? Get that blog you’ve started out into the wider world of interwebs? Well, grab a cup of coffee and let’s get going!


1 – Get online

2 – write brilliant post. make sure you’re interrupted at least 73 times while writing

3 – have crappy but expensive internet service that claims to be high speed randomly stop working

4 – curse, reset router, curse some more, sacrifice chicken, get internet working again, hit “publish” on blog post

4.5 – get interrupted because your magical finding powers are needed to find something

5 – realize that some of your social media connections aren’t right, so the post isn’t publishing where it should. Fix issue. Realize the fix didn’t take. Fix again. Realize again that the fix didn’t take.

6 – Choose to manually share to all your social media outlets.

6.5 – get interrupted again by family, forget to share places

7 – Share other people’s social media stuff. Only to find out that since changing your passwords three months ago, nothing is connected correctly and you have to enter the password to share other people’s stuff to your Twitter account.

7.5 – get interrupted for requests for juice, money, or input on something

8 – Get locked out of Twitter after X amount of failed attempts because you can’t remember what your new password is

8.5- wonder once again why writing down your passwords is considered bad

10 – realize your coffee’s gone cold and consider blogging about it. re-rea

11 – repeat steps 1-10, including getting so distracted that you don’t realize there’s no #9.

There! Now you’re using social media to its fullest!
