Social media. It’s a rum old thing, ain’t it?!
It seems that every day there’s a new platform introduced, one bought out by someone else, one dropping off the radar.
Just as soon as you’ve got your head around one social media platform, it turns out that its no longer down wiv da kids, and they’ve all moved somewhere else anyway. There’s just you and your Nan left, liking each other’s cat videos.
Or, at least, as a thirty-something with a nine year old son, that’s how I feel! I’ve no sooner figured out one social media channel he’s using, and he’s lost interest in that one and has moved on to something completely new.Read more

First of all, let me give you the background. In our family, I work from home as a Freelance SEO Copywriter. I run a digital marketing and SEO consultancy with my husband who has a day job as a Marketing Manager; it would be fair to say that our household is pretty digital marketing orientated.
Unavoidably, social media is a massive part of our lives; both my husband and I have personal accounts for multiple platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest etc.) and we also both manage the social media accounts for our own companies and often some for our clients too.
