Second Year!


I’M BACK!

I MADE IT TO SECOND YEAR OF UNIVERSITY!!! I’m sorry I haven’t been active over summer, well since finishing my last year of Uni; I’ve been super busy and I just haven’t had anything worth blogging about. But, I’m back and will try to blog soon for you…some more useful Social Media related posts which I know you all love. Is there anything in particular you’ve got in mind or ANYTHING SM? Let me know in the comments if you have anything in mind or if you’d like to raise a SM issue/point to me. It always helps if I get suggestions then I can try develop your ideas and help you guys solve any problems you may have. No, I’m no professional but I can, for example, figure out how to use something in order to help others. I usually get the biggest response from blog posts which are, of course, informative and helpful to you all…so I do listen to what you all want to read because afterall I enjoy writing content that you’ll enjoy….although I have to enjoy writing about it – otherwise that’d be no fun!!

Anyways, I’ll finish rambling because this post was basically a post to let you know IM BACK! 🙂
BUT, before I go a question for you all to think about or reply to in the comments: do you think data/multi-media/content/status’ etc. which you publish onto the internet could be used against you?

How I Intend To Approach My Research..


I will be posting a 2000 word blog post recommending a social media website for a chosen case-study. The case-study I have chosen to write a recommendation for is… a recommendation for a blogging platform for a small retail or catering business.

For my course assessment I intend to carry out research on different social media websites which will be useful for small retail and catering businesses to use as their blogging platform. I will carry out research online to find out what social media platform has been most successful for existing small businesses, i.e. finding research online which has already been done to back up my reasoning for the use of whichever blogging platform I decide is most suitable. I will do this because then I have some external links; this doesn’t just back up my recommendation,  but also helps me to create a better structured blog with some existing information.

Also, I will look at what the blogging platform can be linked to in terms of social media platforms, for example can you link your blog to Facebook or a Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram etc. I will look at the types of social media platforms which can be linked to the blogging platform as the more social media platforms can be linked the bigger the reach will be for the retail/catering business. I.e. linking your small businesses blog to Facebook, Twitter etc. will allow you to share your posts onto more platforms and so reaching out to more people.

I will look at how affective each social media platforms are at marketing the blogging platform; this will help me weigh up the pro’s and cons of each blogging platform. Therefore, to begin my assessment I will discuss various blogging platforms, such as; WordPress, Blogger, Blog.com, Ghost, Tumblr etc. before coming to a definite decision about which blogging platform I will choose to recommend to a small retail/catering business.
