Social Media 2-for-Tuesday {wk 20} #SoMe2

It's my favorite day of the week - Tuesday!
Why? Because it's time for ~SoMe2~!!

We love bringing the party to you each week, but it has come to our attention that there are quite a few people who are just linking up their own blogs and then leaving.

Yes, that's right. There are bloggers who link and run. They don't even bother to follow the hosts and featured blogger. (What is up with that? How rude!!)

Seriously, folks? If you've ever hosted a party and had to mess with the HTML, then you know how much work it is...and if you haven't, then I'm telling you right now - it's a lot of work. And let's face it, we're all here for the same reason. We want to make new connections and grow our blogs. We NEED each other. So if you want people to follow you, you've gotta follow them, too! And besides - it's just common courtesy to at least follow your hosts.

So c'mon - let's all pull together and grow our blogs! And remember, when you follow someone on Facebook, you need to follow using your personal account, not your blog page. While "likes" from blog pages are nice, they don't "count", and won't increase your numbers. If you like someone on Facebook, leave them a comment or message so that they know to follow you back!

On to the party!!
Welcome to ~SoMe2~ #20!!

I love meeting the new link-ups every week!
This week, we're linking up Pinterest and Instagram accounts...
Do you want to grow your SOcial MEdia Channels?
Link up with us, then tell your friends (and your friends' friends) to link up, too!

For those who are new: ~SoMe2~ is a SOcial MEdia Link Party where we will link up 2 different platforms every Tuesday @ 7:00 PM (EST).
