Social Media Buzz: Bee The Ninja

Last month we discussed some things people do on social media that can sting. [Read: Social Media Buzz: Don’t Bee That Person.]

In this post you’ll find some subtle yet sweet behaviors that will keep your Swarm buzzing and building.

Being a ninja involves skill and knowledge, and the ability to fuse them cohesively. Sort of like bees in a hive, right?

I love being a Ninja Bee and helping others use their social media secrets to grow their online community.

BETTER: Thanksgiving

This is a photo of the first Thanksgiving dinner I ever hosted. It was my first “on my own” holiday. After not completing college and living at home until Dot was nearly four years old, it was time to move out.

It was tough. I was working full-time and being a single parent of a young child had its moments. I often felt like I was failing. The budget rarely balanced. The apartment wasn’t always clean.

My Communities Page

Because Blogging is much more than just writing a public diary or recounting the day.

To those who say, “It’s just a television show,” I say this: You’ve obviously never really watched it. Not really. Because if you had, if you had joined us on Facebook or twitter, you would know.

It’s not just a show. It’s not just an online community. It’s a family.

It’s a part of my family. And I’m a part of read the rest. . .
