‘Starting a blog is really simple, anyone can do it’

‘Twitter and Facebook are great promotional tools’

 

We hear and read a lot about Social Media and how wonderful it is, but when you are starting out it can look very complicated.

Should I connect with other bloggers? Which bloggers network is the right one for me? 

What about Twitter, and Facebook…
