Using Buffer for Social Media

🖋️ Scheduling posts 🖋️

🖋️ We all know life as a writer, and an indie one at that, is more than busy enough without having to worry about social media presence. Added to this, I only recently had my third child and thus been busier than ever. So, I decided to try out Buffer! I have been using it for a while now, scheduling my social media posts on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and I really do like it!

🖋️ Pros:
– It saves me time by only having to sit down once in a while to schedule posts (for a couple of weeks at a time), instead of making individual ones every day.
– It has made my posting much more regular, and I don’t have to think about it on busy days.
– Features an easy to use app for the phone since it’s the device I use the most for my social media.

🖋️ Cons:
– Despite being one of the cheaper options, it does need a subscription. There is a free version, but it only allows for 10 scheduled posts at a time so not nearly enough if you run accounts on more than one platform.
– You can’t schedule posts with more than one picture for Instagram. So if I want more than one picture I need to post manually.

🖋️ So all in all, I really do like Buffer and scheduling posts. As the old saying goes: time is money. And this saves me time, even if it does cost money. So for now, I will continue to use it at least throughout the summer and see how I feel by the end

Book review: Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

My rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5 stars

An undying classic which deserved a thorough read. I am happy I gave it some undivided attention, as I found myself loving it just as much as I did the film adaptation as it first came out, and NOT TO FORGET, the mini-series with Colin Firth, because… Hello! Mr Darcy!! Who doesn’t like the strangely aloof, handsome man who ends up being nothing like what you thought?

“In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”

This book has everything to satisfy my need for romance, and with a slow-building love that creeps up on Elizabeth and Mr Darcy as they begin to see each other in a different light. One needs to overcome their pride as the other realises their prejudice. It is a heartfelt read, cheerful, funny, and most certainly worth the read!
