• You’re awesome! Love this post. So many great take aways. I love seeing what other people are doing as I always get so many great new ideas. Thanks so much for featuring us Donna and teaching us so much in your course. I’m LOVING visual social media- it is THE way

    • SO glad you got some ideas out of it – I have been mulling over this one for a while as to which blogs would be a good fit and I think I managed to find the perfect mix of travel, food, drink and lifestyle… with a good dose of inspiration! ha ha. Keep up the great work – your visual social media is awesome!

  • Thanks so much for including me Donna! I’m a visual person so I guess that’s why I’m attracted to engaging this way!

    • No problems, and yes you are! If anyone ever says it’s too hard to create their own images I often send them to your blog to see what’s possible. Loving the instagram videos – so fun!

  • Incredible list, and there are definitely some ideas to take away. I need to figure out how I can include both funny and serious visual pieces in my own content to make it more appealing to the masses.

    Great post, Donna.

    • So glad you found it useful Alex – yes I think a mix of helpful and inspiring or funny visual content is a real winner – good luck with it!

    Thanks for this post, Donna. I’ve just found you – via facebook/groups/qldbloggers. I appreciate your short and to the point paragraphs and, of course, the visuals. I’m new to all this, but have some actionables to work on. Oh, and I haven’t finished reading yet …

    • Awesome Allison! I try to keep my paragraphs short but I need to constantly remind myself… ha ha. Glad you are finding the blog useful. Don’t forget to sign up to my weekly newsletter if you haven’t already as some of the best stuff is in there… including the posts for the week. Have a great week ahead and thanks so much for stopping by!

  • I hope someday I will have the honor of being your “shining example!” Sometimes I really need some good examples to show how it is truly done in real life. Thanks so much
