The next post is from Natalie Ducey and is all about making it easy for your readers to share your blog on social media.. you don’t write your blog to talk to yourself, and if someone enjoys it enough to share, you need to enable them to do that.

Cheers, fellow bloggers! ♥

Today’s post is all about sharing. Yup, because that’s what blogging is all about, isn’t it? Connecting and sharing lessons learned with tips and techniques to help make this blogging journey an awesome one. It’s why I started blogging and the very reason I remain so passionate about it.

We all know how much time and effort goes into crafting an engaging blog post. It’s not a simple task.

But… sharing it is. And it’s a win-win for all. Yet it’s not always an option.

I’ll set the scene. 🙂

I arrive at the end of an amazing post, eager to share …. and facepalm. No share options!

Say it ain’t so. I know, right? Missed opportunities.

The final post today is from John Howell who does a wonderful series — Top Ten Things Not To Do.. and this week intriguingly …it is when at the first live radio broadcast of a football game in 1921…

Ten things not to do

This week marks the anniversary of the first live radio broadcast of a football game in 1921. The game was played at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh. The announcer was Harold W. Arlin of radio station KDKA. The University of Pittsburgh Panthers beat the West Virginia University Mountaineers by a score of 21 to 13. (Not much has changed there. This rivalry began in 1895, and so far, the University of Pittsburgh has won the meeting more times than West Virginia University. It is called the Back Yard Brawl since the two schools are only 70 miles from each other.) I think we ought to go to the game rater than listen on the radio. Well, bring the radio along too. It might be fun to see how close the announcer describes the real action. As usual, there are rules to follow, so we don’t create a tear in the time continuum. Take this list with you.

Top Ten Things Not to Do at the First Live Radio Broadcast of a Football Game.

10. If you are at the game, do not think you can listen to the broadcast on streaming audio via iHeart Radio. If you do, at best those around you will be too interested in the game to notice your cell phone. At worst, the usher will spot your phone and ask you to follow him. (For heaven sakes, Jacquez don’t go. You really want to explain that you are from the year 2019? There will be a padded room reserved for you.)
