Buffer! Did you know that “Buffer” is a Twitter App? When you see that little green icon with Buffer inscribed – add the post you are reading to your Buffer App! It will post to your social network – Facebook, and Twitter accounts (for Free).
If you want to have it also post to LinkedIn and your Facebook Pages and Profiles (for those of you with multiple pages/profiles) then you will need to join the “Awesome Plan”.
So why Buffer? If you are as busy as I am, I don’t have a lot of time for sharing – but I want to share those things that I come across that are inspirational, beneficial for business and helps the Small Business Entrepreneur with the different subject matter that they have to handle on a daily basis.
I tell all my clients to set an appointmentfor themselves to do their social network integration and utilizing 3rd party apps like Buffer App – is key to your business growth, interaction and success! When you look at the Infographic below you will notice the best times of the day to post for the different social networks. Well, I don’t know about you, but I am busy and I am not available at those key times to post!
I am still learning how to utilize the Buffer App, but I have to say, I love it! I am definitely upgrading to the “Awesome Plan”as well. I never do that first – I always try the freebie version first – I want to make sure it is easy to use, easy to navigate and that I can install appropriate plugin’s to my different blogs that I maintain!

Social Media – Best and Worst Times To Post . . . . .
Do “YOU”have Social Mediaaccounts listed in this Infographic? These are the major ones that you need to be listed in. Facebook, LinkedIn,Twitter,Google+ andPinterest.Yes, there are many (oh so many social networks to participate in, but starting with the major ones then branching out is better.)
You know, I belong to some amazing networks – and Heyo is one of them! They have fantastic products and really go out of their way with webinars, great postings etc. This InfoGraphiccame from them. I wanted to share with all of you because this is really good info and it is something we all need to know!
There are a couple of 3rd party apps that I use to help me post to my Social Media Networks.
The first app for Social Media Sharing is SharePress. (which auto-posts from WordPress to the Social Web) Now, this is a WordPress Plugin – and you can utilize the “freebie” version for (1 Facebook and 1 Twitter account) As you know, you have a Facebook Timeline, and usually a Facebook Page – but the freebie allows you to post on the timeline only – I have multiple Facebook pages, so I purchased the “Single Plan” – I also recommend my clients to purchase the single plan if they have any Facebook pages.
The 2nd appfor Social Media and Web sharing is BufferApp. Buffer makes your life easier with a smarter way to schedule the great content you find. Fill up your Buffer at one time in the day and Buffer automatically posts them for you through the day. Simply keep that Buffer topped up to have a consistent social media presence all day round, all week long. Get the most out of Buffer and easily share from your mobile, news reader, blog or anywhere! Oh, and of course it’s all free…
Like I said, this is great info and you need to automate as much as you can, but utilizing third party apps to assist you with your social media sharing and content distribution is key! To explore more of the Heyo Blogging arena – and find more Social Media Tips visit the Heyo Link Blog.

A bit of history for you: Memorial Day, an American holiday observed on the last Monday of May, honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.

Jordan Sparks Style!
You know, there are so many talented people out there and I am just floored by the patriotism that is shown. So dear friends, colleagues and new people – take a moment, say a prayer, thank all those that have served our country. And give hugs and lots of encouragement to those that are serving their country today!
My father was in the service and I have his flag that they gave us when he passed away. It still brings tears – not of sadness, but of love, knowing that my dad served his country – WWII – My children’s dad served in the Navy and my oldest son went into the Navy as well. We live in a beautiful country, one that gives us many freedoms, and the ability to make what we want for ourselves. I am thankful each and every day for this beautiful country and for those that give their lives to help us all.
These renditions of our Country’s Song “Star Spangled Banner” are something to cherish and store in our memories forever!
