Welcome to the Inspire Me Monday Linky Party for the week of September 14.
On Tuesday my guest author Ralph, in his first guest post, received 70 comments, pretty good for a first guest post! Ralph called his article “My System,” although I called the post How to Blog and Still Live a Quality Life. Ralph’s post details how to reduce Email clutter to have more time to have a quality life. Judy from JudyRules promoted the post.
On Thursday I published the next installment of my Weekly Roundup Series. If you have any articles about blogging, writing, graphic design, productivity, social media, or photography, I would love to feature your article. Just put your link right in the comment section of this post. As I’m sure you know, it’s a great way to get new exposure for your writing. Also, a link into your site is great for SEO. This coming week it will occur on Wednesday instead of Thursday due to site maintenance.
On Thursday I found out my technology post for Lifehack, about how there’s a Samsung TV set on the back of a truck, received 2,000 shares.
Also on Thursday, I received many shoutouts in Ronovan Write‘s post. Ronovan actually wrote a post which he spun off from my content curation post, Blogging: Organize IT for Success! I was flattered by the kind words about my blog he included in his blogging tips post.
On Saturday I published How to Immediately Make Your Blog Posts Go Viral. If you are interested in having your blog post go viral, check it out. The post offers 27 ways to get unusually high page views.
On Sunday I published 1 Easy Way to Find More Time in Your Day which contains excerpts of a guest post I wrote for Lifehack.org. Lifehack’s pitch, which I accepted, was a brief commentary on a short video. I found the reaction to the post interesting. Readers didn’t agree on whether the video was funny, gruesome, or a combination of the two. Feel free to check it out and offer your opinion.
Now let’s talk about you.
I was torn. I found five posts I considered inspirational but had to decide on two. Coincidentally, I chose two in the educational realm.
The first winner was Pretend Play Post Office from Housewifeeclectic.com. I liked the post for a variety of reasons. First, I felt it was educational. The project turns a Huggies Diaper Box into a post office. For a young child, this could be fun as well as teach them about the mail. Next, because the craft involves repurposing the box, the idea is good for the environment.
The next post I liked was 25 Questions to Ask Your Child About Their Day. The article made me recollect the days when my oldest was in elementary school. She’d come home, and I would ask her about her day. She would say it was “fine”. The post offers 25 questions to ask your child that will get an indepth answer.
Are you wondering what the post that was clicked on more than any other was?
Last week we received 304 links, and the one that was the most popular was… Star Wars Princess Leia Cupcakes.
Although it is not required, it is considered polite to follow your hostess!
Meet Your Hostesses
This week we welcome a new hostess, BonBon from Farmhouse 40. The linkup is now on seven blogs, so your one post will be seen on my blog plus six other blogs!
