Lotti and the Social Media Jungle – Twitter ahead!

I have recently come across this blogpost about ‘How to Twitter’ by wonderful blogger and writer Molly Greene, which I would herewith like to share with you, as well.

It contains a little summary of the most important rules and ‘How To’s when using Twitter and outlines some interesting Twitter facts which could be of help when growing your account. I, for example, didn’t know that there was a limit Continue reading

Beyond Photos: Adding Other Visuals to Your Posts

The Daily Post

Raise your hand if you don’t like seeing photos in blog posts.

[Crickets]

Didn’t think so. Adding a nice image to your written content makes sense on multiple levels — it helps break the monotony of long stretches of text, lets you show off your mad photography skills, and very often complements and even enhances your words. And you don’t even have to feature your own images — the web is full of free ones you can use.

What_to_write_about

Dear friends of the wonderful Blogging World,

As some of you might have noticed, I have not been blogging frequently over the past few months (apart from the last couple of weeks) – partly, because I tend to get excited by too many things at the same time which almost always leads to never-ending time issues (can’t beat it, it’s my “naturel”) and partly, because I quite often lack ideas when it comes to writing a blog as an artist.

I know that it is crucial to blog frequently (meaning on a regular basis but not necessarily every day), and that’s exactly what I am opt to do (and need to highly improve on) for this year 2015.
