5 Blogging Benefits of Clean Social Profiles

If you’re a blogger, that means that you’re in the public eye because you want to be in the public eye. You have a public opinion, and you want the public to know who you are. In order to not only find out more about what you write, but about you. And that’s why, if you’re going to be a blogger, you absolutely have to have clean social profiles – because people are going to be looking for you.

So what are some of the pages you need to make sure are in order? A few good places to start would be your LinkedIn page, your Facebook groups, your Twitter feed, the central website your post from, and your Snapchat and Periscope profiles.

Linking To LinkedIn Page

When you provide a LinkedIn page, anyone who knows your name or has your link can see what you’ve presented. This is going to include things like school, prior and current jobs, particular skill sets you’ve had, and projects you’ve worked on. The more complete and tightened down that page is, the more people can learn about you so far as where your blogging skill come from, and why your opinions matter.

Connected To Friends On Facebook Groups

When you start a Facebook group, you immediately have a platform to speak to a potentially large number of people. Because of how Facebook is set up, you can either put people in the group and wait for them to start interacting, or allow them to interact first and then put them in the group. Either way, that particular form of social media is both popular and effective for starting discussions, which is what a lot of blog posts are intended to do.

Updates Via Twitter

For bloggers, having an effective Twitter account is almost a necessity. Opt-in followers can see your comments and links in real-time, and they can discuss their ideas with you in a public forum in short, concrete statements with sources linked. This is a very powerful method successful bloggers use to retain interest and attention.

The Central Website Hub

And even if you are mostly a blogger for someone else, you should probably have your own main website space. This can either act like a hub for your other activities, or even act as a portfolio for you if you’re trying to get writing jobs elsewhere.

Snapchat and Periscope as Teasers

And some of the new media formats can help bloggers away. Being able to tell your story via something like Snapchat or Periscope really opens up your activities to a wide variety of people with limited time, and that all translates directly to your message as well.
