This was a great webinar, thanks for all the amazing tips! I have a weirdly specific question: How do I manage my social media as a freelance science communicator if I have multiple interests/skills (e.g., conservation science, public health, fact checking, sustainability, chronic illness advocacy, conservation psychology, and more)? Do I make a separate account for each interest? Do I find a way to integrate multiple topics without it feeling like nothing fits together? I feel like it would be strange to have a post about planting pollinator-friendly lawns right next to a video about managing mealtime with a chronic illness. And maybe most importantly, how on Earth do I reign in the alternating ADHD hyper-focus and executive dysfunction to manage so much diverse social media content?!

Looking forward to any advice anyone might have!

Hi Gaby! So happy you joined the webinar!

You asked, "How do I manage my social media as a freelance science communicator if I have multiple interests/skills?"

I'd say, "Embrace them all!" One of our team members shared that being able to portray your skills and abilities in communicating a multitude of topics is a valuable advantage. I don't think creating a separate account for each interest is necessary. Rather, look at which platforms allow you to curate collections of posts organized by themes, like Instagram Guides. This way, your followers can dive into specific topics without scrolling through post after post, looking for a specific topic.

You can find a way to integrate multiple topics. Accounts like Intersectional Environmentalist are great at this. Similarly, Michael @SchoolHouseCaulk applies civil engineering knowledge on everything from peanut butter cups to dams and tornadoes. However, if you scroll through Michael's videos, you'll also see videos about his dog, Pancake, so sometimes they don't have to always connect.

And if it's not easy to connect the various topics through content, try to connect them in other ways. Maybe it's your unique take or delivery—through video, imagery, illustrations, or storytelling—that unites your posts.
