I have had the courage to start a new segment of my blog, this has been something I have been wanting to do for a while now but that confidence level was not working, If you dont know my previous job was a social media management company and with that I got a taste of what it would be like to be a social media marketer and I loved it. (hint: blogging goals for 2018). One thing you need to know social media is NOT black and white.
I am going to say this as i research on ways to create a better online presence I have to blog my way through it on the strategies that have worked for me.
