Connecting via social media is a great way to grow you blog.

Many don’t utilize social media and in my opinion that is a mistake.  Take a few minutes and research the effectiveness of social media!  Social media benefits your blog in several ways:

  1. Adds legitimacy to your page in the eyes of search engines (SEO best practices).
  2. Expands the reach of your voice.
  3. Helps to grow you statistics (i.e. followers, views, comments, etc.)
  4. Allows for a deeper connection with your readership.

Leave me your social media links in the comments and I and others will LIKE, FOLLOW, PIN and CONNECT!

I consider myself and anyone else aware of her to be pretty lucky already as this author has a pretty powerful perspective and is more than capable of articulating her experiences and thought processes as it relates to the cultural upbringing of the African American experience. Her name is Yecheilyah Ysrayl and I had the pleasure of doing a Q&A session with her a few weeks ago. Below is the interview along with her social media contact info.

Welcome Russia

So as everyone whose probably tired of these posts by now already know, I am showing love to all my viewers who I see stop through to peek at this blog who are from other countries outside the U.S. It is something I don’t think is done very often, and not too long ago I saw a view come in from Russia! Welcome Russia!  Do come Again.

Nigeria and Pakistan

This week I am showing appreciation for my International Viewers. And being that I have residence in the U.S. that means any country outside America.  It may seem small, but if you appreciate the little things you can be trusted with greater things. I by no means under appreciate any level of support.

So anyway, what’s up Nigeria and Pakistan! I saw you this morning. Thanks for scrolling through The PBS Blog. 🙂

versatileThere are a lot of good things happening today: we all woke up this morning, I’m still married to the most handsome man in town, the sun is shining beautifully in Louisiana, I’ll probably go home early (Ok, that’s stretching it), it is a good day though and…oh yea, we’ve been nominated for another blog award people :).

• Link your nominees’ blogs, and let them know. (check)

Now for the interesting part, 7 facts about myself. (I actually like the number 7 by the way, but shh, that don’t count,  do over lol) here we go:

1. My name is Yecheilyah (e-see-lee-yah) but everyone calls me EC, you can too 🙂
2. I love children and I work with, teach, and tutor them outside of writing
3. I live in Louisiana but I’m originally from  Chicago, south side
4. I have a twin sister
5. I love laughing, pasta, and I think ice cream is the best desert ever made
