We have a great community of bloggers here at SITS, and we like to take the time to challenge ourselves to improve our online space while getting to know others. This is why we are doing Blogtober once again. This year we want to focus on social media link ups, which is a great way to meet other bloggers as well as a help in growing your social media following.

Blogtober - SITS Girls Challenge to help you grow your social media followers.


Starting next Monday, October 20th through Friday, October 24th, our Community Leads Krystal and Amy will help you tackle social media. From Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Google+, and Twitter, we will give you our best tips to make each social media network work for you. And, of course, there will be a link up to get to know everyone!

    Hi there,

    I’m Lash, a full-time traveler and travel blogger.

    I landed on this page via your FB announcement. I’ve done some pin-up parties before, so I do know about them. I’m looking forward to connecting with more bloggers, presumably in different genre from traveling, and learning your tips for social media next week. I’m especially interested in your tips for FB, Tw and Pinterest.

    Just one Question: Is there a certain time each day that things will be happening? I’m in Australia right now, so that’s a completely different time zone from Europe, UK and USA. If I know what main times you’ll be on I can plan to join, rather than miss all the fun.

    Thanks heaps for letting me join! 🙂

    cheers, Lash

  • Such a great idea!!!
