According to this Wired article-
, the best way to get noticed (and get more work) is to have a Tumblr blog. So I did that. Took me 20 minutes and this is how I did it-
Now just make sure Sharing is turned on for Tumblr in your WordPress.com account.
One word of caution, if you are like me and have merely used Tumblr to mirror your WordPress blog, the great and terrible god Google might punish you, so in Tumblr I turned off the option that allows my Tumblr blog to be indexed.
Is it worth jumping on every social media bandwagon? Who knows, or really cares- if it’s out there, you might as well use it. (See my social media links on this page for example). I’m almost everywhere on the web. As you can see, I’ve almost completely given up on personal privacy. Don’t know if that’s a good thing or not.
Has this helped me get more work? Eh… no actually, not yet… Fingers crossed though. (It’s only been twenty minutes!)
