Issue #85: More Facebook Tips for Travel Writers
October 26, 2015
Greetings Fellow Travel Writers and Bloggers!

Two weeks ago, I published an article on how to use Facebook to enhance your credibility and boost your image as a successful travel writer.

This article was very well received and we’ve fielded several questions and requests for more information.

Today’s featured article has plenty of useful advice on what content you should post, and just as importantly, it shows what you should NOT post on your Facebook sites. I cover everything from photographs to magazine covers, and when to post on Facebook.

I even broach the thorny topic of ‘Facebook Addiction’, which I’m guessing will prove interesting to many of you.

We’re also featuring a travel blogger, Ruby Boukabou in this issue. You can learn more about Ruby and her blog below.

‘Friend’ Me!
If you haven’t already done so, please ‘Friend’ me (Roy Stevenson Freelance Writer) on Facebook. My posts are generally travel writing-related and I try to keep it fun.

My Saturday morning ‘Where’s Roy’ Facebook post has been particularly popular! I post a travel photo—usually with me in it—and you have to guess where the heck I am. A few friends and subscribers have proved particularly adept at this.

That’s all for now.

Until next time, you keep pitching....
