What If You're Not A Social Media Wizard?

Part 1: The Big 50

The creative world is full of people with ideas that they’re dying to share. That’s great, but not all of those people enjoy using social media so they find it really difficult to get their ideas out there and seen by an audience who will enjoy them.

The Big 50

Here is the list, along with links to each site! I don’t recommend that you try regularly uploading to them all – uploading is time-consuming and can be emotionally exhausting. Instead, try checking them out, upload to a few, and then narrow them down to the ones you enjoy using.
