Day 22 HAWMC: Pro tips

Tip Tuesday!Have you mastered the hashtag? Figured out the Instagram algorithm? Or maybe you have a few tips to in crease your blog followers. Whatever it is, share your expertise with your fellow HA’s - it’ll only make our community stronger!
I don't know if I have any Pro-tips that I didn't mention in my previous post. Like the always use a image in your blog and the article I posted about good ways to go about that.
So there was that, that I had previous mentioned. Very important to have visuals of good quality to match what your post is about and draw people in. 

2-For engagement I follow a simple recipe on my Facebook page that gets me good engagement. Minimum I post three images I have made and thee articles I have found. The rest like shares I have shared to the page is all bonus material. Share other pages when they ask you to, and they will share back. Promote other bloggers. Post your images in support groups you are in... usually my amusing ones or ones people can easily relate to.

3-for your blog the best thing I can say is get to know other bloggers. Meet those in your blogger community blogging what you are blogging about. Add them to your blog roll. Ask to interview them.  Gets your name out there and you really connect with other bloggers.

4- Do these sort of events. These blogathons for causes that are important to you. Any cause that is important support on your blog.
For the most part my followers were gained naturally. I had a consistent natural pace of increase. Recently I added a mailing list, that does help. MailChimp is great for that.

Anyway it is around but I'm posting it here so I will not have to hunt it down to reference it. Now we all know the major symptoms are the wide-spread pain, but our pain isn't just muscle pain... it can be nerve types of pain as well, and the fatigue and the insomnia. And even among symptoms there are some far more frequent than others, but it should be said we have categories... like the cognitive dysfunction, which is a broad one that has more than one symptom and we often just say fibrofog. The insomnia... more than one sleeping disorder. So the list is interesting.

Getting through the high intensity pain flares #Blogboost

The crowded me out of the brain. Making no room for anything else. Distraction was impossible. You feel almost frantic with the pain but must be still.

What do you do? To get through it when you have no distraction?

I ask me this as I am really in the depths of a 9 level frantic level of pain right now. Hoping maybe some writing will be a distraction, but it isn't. As I said, the pain crowds the brain. I have to focus real hard to write and my head isn't clear. Too much pain to focus well. Things become quite difficult to do. 

I will say this: We cannot function. We have to just cope with the pain.

But we are Immersed in the pain, we what do we do?
We can and should rest and get through it the best we can. Here are some of the things I do to get through it.
