Some of My Favorite Posts on Social Media Basics

I look back on the last 4-ish years of blogging and am amazed at how much I’ve learned. I’ve shared a lot of that here on this blog, but a lot has also been from tons of smart people in my industry.

I often find myself sharing the same posts on certain topics over and over.

In case you don’t want to go digging through my archives and those who I recommend following, I’ve put together this list of some of my favorite posts. Enjoy!
