Link of the Week | CoSchedule



Having trouble trying to manage where all your social media posts are going and when your next blog update is going to be? Not sure who is looking at your website or social media and how often?

CoSchedule is a website designed to help with that. By using one website you can organize your office, or just yourself, to make things easier. Created in 2014, this website boasts that “On average teams save 12 hours per week.” It even has a calculator that can help you identify how much time you could save as a team by inputting how many members are on your team, how many projects you do in a week, and even how many social media accounts you have.

What’s even better is that the guesswork that comes along with figuring out the best time for posting is gone. By using their “best time” feature for social media posts, it‘ll allow the user to let the program take care of that, by analyzing the best time to post your message to get the most amount of traction. CoSchedule will even be able to identify which of your social media posts did the best and then recommend you running it again in 1,2, or even 3 months after the first post.

CoSchedule has a variety of different plans that allow the user to be able to find one that fits their individual needs, whether that be a single person running a blog, or an entire company that needs to know where each team is on a large project.

Link of the Week | Brooklyn Book Festival

 

The Brooklyn Book Festival (BKBF) is one of the biggest festivals in New York City and this year it is featuring over 300 authors. Originally meant to showcase the unique “voice” of Brooklyn, because of the variety of authors that resided there, the event has taken off allowing other authors outside of Brooklyn to be celebrated as well.

The Festival starts on Monday, September 10 and will primarily be in downtown Brooklyn. There will be different panels, themed readings, author signings, and vendors that will be present. More recently, the festival has gown to include two special days during the festival: Children’s Day (Saturday, September 15) and Festival Day (Sunday, September 16th).

They are also presenting the Bobi Award, which is the Best of Brooklyn award for the author “whose work best exemplifies or speaks to the spirit of Brooklyn”. This year, the winner is N.K Jemisin who is the first author to win with speculative fiction.
