Hey everybody. I wanted to do a little housekeeping today and go over all the ways you can follow (and boost) this blog on social media. This is silly, I know (believe me, I know), but it’s ridiculously important to increasing our public footprint and, therefore, our ability to do cool new things around here (and at Patreon, hint hint). Anyway, I’ve made a couple of changes and additions to the blog’s social media presence. For example, on the homepage you can now click on the links to our various pages around the web in the handy social media bar, shown here:
Handy, right? If you’ve already happened to notice that bar, then you may notice something else, which is that in addition to the old Twitter, Facebook, etc. links up there I’ve added a Pinterest link. That’s because attwiw is now–wait for it–on Pinterest. As I write new posts, and as long as I remember to post them there because WordPress won’t do it automatically, they’ll go up there as well. Does it make sense for this blog to have a Pinterest page? How the hell should I know? I’m too old for this shit. But I like seeing all the thumbnails bunched up like that so the page stays. Please follow the blog there, and share its content.
The second thing I’ve done is that I’ve created a new Twitter account solely, or at least mostly, for this blog’s feed: @attwiw. This is for anybody who would like to follow the blog (and share its content!) on Twitter but would rather do so without having to read me getting on my bullshit as I am wont to do on my personal account (@dwdavison9318 if that does interest you). I’ve also set up a Google Plus page for the blog (does anybody use Google Plus?) here. There’s no content there yet because I literally set it up about ten minutes ago.
There is also, of course, the blog’s long-suffering tumblr page. I once had high hopes for this blog’s tumblr page but I’ve all but given up on them. It’s all shared posts from this place, but if you use tumblr then please by all means follow and share, etc.
We’re almost done! Next up is the blog’s myspace page. Just kidding.
Finally there’s our Facebook page. That’s also mostly shared posts from here but I made a New Year’s resolution to get over my Facebook issues and start posting more unique content there, and dammit I’m going to do that so please, again, follow the blog there and share widely.
That’s it! Do any of these accounts enhance the reading experience here? Not really. But you’d be doing me a big favor if you signed on to follow them anyway. Thanks!
