I found this post by Neal Martin to be particularly well done for a blog post aimed at authors. Firstly, it has a title that quickly lets you know that you are going to get the “top 3” social media sites for authors. Of course those top three are only the author of the blog’s opinion, but it makes for a good headline that I’m sure will lead to a lot of clicks, particularly for new authors who are trying to figure out how best to spend their online time.
I liked the layout of the post, for all the titles and subtitles helps skimmers get to the place they are looking for in the article. I thought the explanations regarding why authors need social media were well articulated and good, solid reasoning.
As for the three best platforms the blogger chose… well, I think that everyone’s opinion on that will vary, as different platforms will work for different people, but he did do a good job of explaining why he chose the ones he chose.
