Diva's Guide to Blogging: When Big Companies Recognize You
What I quickly learned about blogging is you can't let the blog do all the work. You have to put the word out that you have just uploaded a post. Big blogs that I follow still do this. When a post goes up, it hits what I call the Big 5: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Tumblr. Diva Chronicles is slowly but surely garnering some recognition. So far, I've been mentioned or retweeted by brands like Shea Moisture, Iman Cosmetics, and Revlon!
You're always taking a risk when you mention the brands your writing about on your blog in social media. The biggest risk is going unnoticed. Just multiply yourself by a couple thousand and that's how many bloggers, major websites and magazines are doing the same as you. So to get a simple mention is a huge accomplishment, well to me anyway. It's the little push I need to keep doing what I love and that Diva Chronicles is headed in the right direction.
So to Revlon, Shea Moisture, and Iman Cosmetics: Thank you!
