@Rebekah Radice Ah Twitter, an oldie but goodie. :) Thank YOU so much for sharing your Twitter smarts here. Twitter has great potential but as you outlined here it takes some planning and you need to do it the right way. Really great post and happy to have it on my blog.

@Jeff Sieh Twitter is consistently in my top 3 or 4 for blog traffic. It really depends on the topic. I think it's easier to connect on Twitter and I've met fantastic people just from a tweet.
I use all social channels for networking. I find that I have different people following me in different places so each audience is a little different.

@iSocialFanz Nice graph! :)
@Chad Egeland Thanks for reading, Chad! Hootsuite has a lot of great features for lists, columns for hashtags, and more. Lists make Twitter amazing!

@Jeff Sieh I agree (of course)! The days of pulling traffic with SEO terms only are done - Every update that Google does seems to focus more on things like if people are talking about and sharing your content. While no one knows Google's secret formula, SMO seems to be the track that it's taking. And it makes blogging more fun too!

@KeenerMarcom In retrospect, it was a great idea I wish I had started sooner. I should go back and create some from the most popular posts so they have good images for Pinterest.
Thanks for reading!

@HaikuDeck Thanks Catherine!
@2asuccess Thanks! :)
@kenpickard Ha - thanks Ken! You should definitely try Google+ and Pinterest together, it's a great combo.
@RaquelMRamirez Love your ideas too, Raquel! Planning for the repurposing makes the tasks even easier. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for the great post and for mentioning Canva in your fave tools. I use many of these as well - Social Oomph is the one I haven't tried yet and want to give a try sometime.

@TianaKaiMiami It's a challenge to switch the way you think about a photo but vertical is the way to go. Have you checked out Trey Ratcliffe's Pinterest? He does special photo crops for his Pinterest posts and they are gorgeous!

@timeshareauthor I don't have any expertise in timeshares. I would do search for timeshare on Twitter but I'm not sure how to reach one niche audience other than blog consistently, share content on the topic and use keyword searches.
@DaraLin If you're just starting out with blogging, it takes a while to build traffic. Did you just publish your first post?

@ImaginationSoup I bet blog themes will catch up with Pinterest design - eventually!
@ImaginationSoup I agree that it could be too much similarity. I think a little visual variety while keeping them branded together might work. What do you think?

@Ann @annstrini Great! I hope you give them a try.
@DigitalBalefire Glad you liked it! Are you currently using Pinterest for marketing?
@byRegina I agree that you should put monetization efforts into place but I think that having all the other pieces into place are important too. Blogging is a lot of work and it's hard to make money doing it.
Thanks for reading and commenting. I'm happy to include you. I really love your blog!

@kr_iyer Glad you liked the article! Hooray for pinnable images from Canva - my Pinterest traffic exploded when I started using it. I hope it does for you as well.
I love vanilla vanilla cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery in NYC. (vanilla cupcake with vanilla frosting) I have the recipe and make them at home occasionally.

@Rebekah Radice I love all the little tweaks we've made to our content sharing strategy to boost Pinterest and web traffic, it's been a great and successful experiment!
@Wade Harman Thanks Wade!
@Philip Uglow Thanks Phil! Are you blogging?
@Brian Lang I'm definitely not an SEO person but I know that Google+ helps with Google search and Google authorship which helps with overall SEO. I have Google+ posts rank high within Google search and never see tweets. Google Plus is definitely worth the time you put into it.

@gerridetweiler Mike uses a system that he moves people from one circle to another circle based on how much content he wants to see from them. You could probably comment on Mike's G+ post for this and ask him for more information. I'm sure he's written about his Google+ circle strategy in more detail.
@ltsailiata I'm not sure if we'll have any more author interviews - we did a series when we were promoting the book APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur - How to Publish a Book. I'm glad you liked it!
@mike_allton I'm happy I met you on Google+, Mike. It's a new and changing landscape and I love the people that I met on G+ and maybe wouldn't have met without G+. I appreciate your sharing your ideas in the post and the article with your network.
@Rebekah Radice There's so many ways to grow on social networks and asking questions is a great way to go! I knew that Google+ would love you once you got there, Rebekah. It's fantastic to check out your profile and see your engaging posts.
@affordpreneur I hope the next try sticks for you. :)
@rmrogel1022 I moved the share bar over to the right side. There's tons of post about Google+ that are basic tips. Here's one for you http://12most.com/2013/06/25/tips-for-new-google-plus-users/
@byRegina Really happy to help if I can, Regina. Google+ is a little different than Facebook but once you get the hang of it and connect with people, it's unbeatable!
@byRegina Regina - awesome! I'm out to pull people to Google+ one at a time. You'll find a huge new audience for your fantastic blog and your great visuals will really be popular.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and let me know if you have any questions on Google+, I'd be happy to help you.
@jaredeasley Thanks, Jared! How's the podcast going?
@Brenda Barron I'm glad that you found it helpful. There's so many moving parts and things to consider with blogs!
