Social Media Articles

We have a lot of fun with social media, especially Instagram. I’m constantly learning about the latest ways to promote small businesses on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and WordPress blogs. There’s so much info out there it’s hard not to suffer from information overload. So I try to post about useful social media articles and tips that I’ve personally found to be useful.

If you haven’t already — don’t forget to follow the I Love Cowichan blog, and our Instagram & Facebook accounts.

Frying up some Cowichan grown diced white onions, yellow peppers and minced garlic in olive oil 😋🧂🍽 Vegetarian lasagna for supper. Cooking is way more fun when the weather gets wet and cool.
