Connecting to social media

Now that my basic site for Black Sheep Bags is up and running, I though I better make sure that my connections to different social media sites were in good order. I’m not versed in all the sharing sites, but I am an avid user of Pinterest, so I figured I should get an account set up that I could connect to Black Sheep Bags’ new website.

I got my Black Sheep Bags Pinterest account set up and found some pins that included photos of my bags that people had knit. Now I’m looking for a way to incorporate this into my website.

In addition, I decided that twitter would be a great way to connect and share the posts from my blog, so I got an account set up for Black Sheep Bags with the BoogaBag name. I was able to easily connect my twitter account to my website via the Jetpack plugin.

I already had a Facebook account for my business, but strangely enough, I’ve been having trouble integrating in with my site. For some reason, I can’t get the ‘publicize’ tool to acknowledge my Facebook account — possibly because it is a business style account.  Hmmm.

I’m pleased to say that after having the site up for only a few days, I was able to get 40 hits yesterday and I’m up to 41 hits for today and it’s not yet noon.

Next I need to work on graphics. I’ve updated my copy of GIMP and I need to get back up to speed on using it. Time to find some good tutorials.
