Today, I want to give a massive shout out and say a really big thank you to all Girl in a Hard Hat followers on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram & Pinterest. Just over a year now, when I started the blog, we also set up the associated social media accounts and from day one you started following and commenting on all that we do which has been absolutely brilliant.
And I never, ever forget that I’m here, because you’re here, the Girl in a Hard Hat blog & it’s social medias is your space as well as mine. That’s one reason I’ve launched The Supplier Edit, as a showcase for businesses that are a great fit with the blog, so do get in touch if you would like to feature.
As regular readers of the blog will be well aware by now, I love using vibrant colours, both inside and out and this is also reflected in my social medias. I love your positive comments regarding how vibrant and uplifting my feeds are and how you look out for them and recognise them straight away. This celebration of colour and my love of anything house & garden with a slightly funky twist have become my real signature style and my USP which defines both the blog and all my social media accounts.
Some of you follow the blog via just one social media feed, some follow all four, which ever is your feed of choice, I just want to say again how grateful I am for the follows, likes and interaction, don’t stop, keep commenting and getting involved, and invite friends to follow to as we really are building up a terrific online community.
For those of you that don’t follow all of my accounts, below is a brief description of each and how I use them and if you like the look of one you don’t currently follow, hop on board, it will be great to have you with us. They’re fun, feel good, informative and inclusive.
Girl in a Hard Hat on Twitter
Our Twitter feed is very popular with a following of almost 11,500 now and growing every day.
This feed is truly international with followers on every continent and one third of followers from the United States. We have such a diverse range of followers too from cattle farmers in the Australian outback to potters in Cornwall, which is great. I post on Twitter at least once a day and there’s always lively activity and variety on the Twitter feed.
We live by the sea, so there are quite a few coastal images on the feed which are always amazingly popular and you wouldn’t necessarily get to see them that much on the blog.
The same goes for my love of motorbikes, although this year, as a one off special I will feature the BMAD (Bikers Make a Difference) Festival on the blog, this is actually coming up this bank holiday weekend, so fingers crossed for the weather and look at for the post over the weekend, it will be something completely different.
Girl in a Hard Hat on Facebook
The Girl in a Hard Hat Facebook Feed is busy too. Again, I post every day and the content is just as wide ranging as on Twitter. I can say a little more on Facebook as I don’t have the 140 character limitation, so this often helps when I want to add a slightly longer description to a photo I’ve posted.
This often helps when I’m reviewing a product, like this new Westland mulch below.
Or when I want to describe a really funky take on an everyday product, like these amazing radiators.
Girl in a Hard Hat on Instagram
As anyone who follows Instagram will know, it’s quite different from other social medias as it’s incredibly visual. All you see initially on the feed are images. This actually suits my style really well, and I’d be surprised if you can easily find a brighter feed than mine. Just take a look.
I receive an awful lots of comments on Insta saying how much it brightens people’s day when they see one of my images ping up, and if I can do that for you, then it makes my day too.
Girl in a Hard Hat on Pinterest
To a creative, highly visual person such as myself, Pinterest is a dream. I could spend all day look through all the images on there and gaining inspiration and ideas and just generally satisfying my colour crush. Sadly I haven’t got all day, who has? But I do love Pinterest and must make a more concerted effort to keep my boards up to date.
Another colour alert coming, as here are just a couple of collages with a few of my favourite images from my boards.
Did I mention that I love Italy too? There’s a fabulous ‘Magic of Italy’ board in my feed, along with more colourful images from around the globe than I have time to do justice to here, together, of course, with stacks of home grown interiors and garden inspiration.
So there we have it, a brief trip around Girl in a Hard Hat’s Social media sites. I do my very best to keep them fresh and up to date and I’m always thinking about what else you might enjoy that I can share with you.
