Twitter! Facebook! Instagram! Oh my! Let’s not forget Pinterest and YouTube too. Your thumbs are on the pulse of every social media platform out there, and they should be! As a professional blogger, you need to know what’s hapening and what people are talking about at any given time so you can make informed comments on your own blog. Current events and hot topics provide a lot of your blog material and spark interesting (and occasionally heated) debates among your readers/blog contributors.
