Additional Notes for my Session at NTC’s WordPress Day

Hi, WordPress Day-ers! As promised, here are the additional notes to accompany my slides from my session, “From Sharing to Hashtags: Social Media Musts for Your WordPress Site.” Slides are shared here. (And thanks for joining me!)

Everyone else: I made this presentation for WordPress Day at the Nonprofit Technology Conference in San Jose on March 22. Some of the information is geared specifically towardΒ nonprofits, but lots of it is pretty universal for using WordPress & social media together, so enjoy! πŸ™‚

Note: I’m not rehashing all of the text on the slides, so look at those for the main ideas and images. These notes include the additional things I said and things I wish I would’ve had time to say.

WordPress.com on Instagram

Quote from WordPress.com Instagram

I recently started a side project at work. We had an Instagram account but weren’t using it, so I wrote up a proposal with content ideas and Instagram best practices and… ta-da!

I’m sharing standout WordPress.com content there now, like quotes from pieces on Discover, beautiful photos from blogs, and screenshots of great looking websites. Follow: @wordpressdotcom.

Sidenote: Add this to the list of why I love working at Automattic. It’s a real do-ocracy. If you see something that needs working on and want to be the one to do it, you can go for it and I love that.
