    1. I know I’m guilty of this to some extent, but partially because I want to make sure that the little bit of quality content I am posting gets noticed. I try not to spray too much content over all social media outlets. I only concentrate on a few, and among those few, two or three in particular. My product is myself, not a product or service, so having a substantial number of followers or hits on this blog do make a difference to me!
