Social media has evolved in the recent past to cater for the needs of everyone. Even if you like to share photographs or share stories and articles, you only need to find the correct social media platform for the same. From Twitter to Facebook and even Instagram, you have so much to choose from. Sharing on social media becomes even better when you integrate it with blogging platforms such as WordPress.

This can give you an idea of what to post. You could also have guest bloggers blog for you from time to time to improve the quality of your content. Doing blog interviews is also a solution to this challenge.
A common problem faced by start-up bloggers is the possibility of posting something and getting no feedback from the audience. This problem cuts across most social media networks.The solution to this issue is to try and share your content widely and the take time to respond to feedback posted. When you respond to feedback, others in the audience are encouraged to leave comments on your posts.

Secondly, guest bloggers tend to draw more attention to your blog since they share the links on their already famous blogs. Thirdly, you can carry out interviews on the blog to have the famous people interviewed share links to your blog, hence attracting traffic. Finally, you can use social media influencers to popularize your blog.
