Attention Social Writers: Do I Give A Sh#%@

Great writing is about sharing stories or information that are personal, practical and timely for your audience. I typically ask myself if I received this information, would I give a sh#%@ or DIGS which stands for Do I Give a Share?

In this new online world, it’s hard to know if anyone is reading and liking what you put out there. Sure, they may comment and have an opinion. But, the really good writing and tidbits get shared, just like they do in the physical world. It’s a quick way to measure if people are reading what you have to say and liking it. The more shares you get, the more exposure you receive both from people and the search engines.

So, the next time you read something and think it’s good, DIGS it!
