Let’s Share Our Social Media Links

Are you using social media? Well, then why not share them and gain some new followers? It’s been a while since I’ve done this on this blog, so I thought it was time to do it again. Here are my social media links:

Twitter: @jaydeejapan

With 3293 followers at the moment, this has my largest following. More than this blog! But it’s such an easy way to communicate with me. Please follow!

YouTube: Jay Dee Archer

With 55 subscribers, this is probably one of my least followed. I have a lot of very interesting videos to come, especially if you like Japan, books, and sometimes general silliness. Please subscribe!

Facebook: Jay Dee Archer (official author Facebook page)

It has 73 likes, and could definitely use more. If you use Facebook, why not follow me there? I usually do blog updates, but I plan to have more discussions, and it’s an easy way to talk to other followers.

Google Plus: Jay Dee Archer

With 70 followers, though more than 70,000 views, it’s not the most popular social media option, but it does get plenty of views. Please add me to your circles!

LinkedIn: Jay Dee Archer

I have only 48 connections, as this is the social media website I have used the least. However, it is a professional social media website, and I’m trying to establish myself more there. If you’re on LinkedIn, connect with me!

Instagram: @jaydeejapan

With 427 followers, this is probably my third biggest following anywhere. It’s all photos of Japan at the moment, though photos in Canada will come soon. Using Instagram? Follow me!

Patreon: Jay Dee Archer

I just started this, so I have no followers or patrons. It does include a blog, so whether you become a patron or not, you can read public posts that I make. So, please follow! And if you like, become a patron.

Now it’s your turn. In the comments below, leave your social media links. Check other people’s links, as well. Follow people! But also share your blog or website’s address. Follow as many people as you like. And I also ask you to do one more thing: share this post and get the word out. Let’s have a social media sharing party!

Using LinkedIn More Effectively

I think it’s time to improve my LinkedIn profile and expand my network. I’m going to start using the social network to promote myself professionally, as well as this blog and my writing. But I’m thinking about how to do that.

First of all, if you’re interested in connecting with me, you can find my profile here and add me as a connection.

Secondly, I need to flesh out my profile. That includes past jobs, responsibilities, write more about my education, and more. But another thing I’m thinking about doing is starting a group related to this blog. But what should I do with it? Should I make it about this blog? Or should it be about Authors Answer? What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.

Getting Serious About LinkedIn

There’s one social network I have neglected for the longest time.  I joined, filled in a few things, then left it alone.  I regularly got updates and requests and never really did anything about it.  Well, it’s time.  LinkedIn, here I come.

This is different than all the other social media sites I’ve used.  This one is professional.  It’s linked to work and careers.  It can actually help people find jobs, expand their professional networks, and advertise their services.  In my case, I’d also like to use it to publicise this blog.  But you see, I have a problem.  I don’t know much about LinkedIn.  I need to study it.  I also need to complete my profile.

So, I need your help.  For those of you who use LinkedIn, do you have any tips about using it?  Let me know in the comments below.
