Welcome to the Inspire Me Monday Linky Party for October 3. We are so happy you decided to join us.
Weekly Wrap Up
Tuesday: 1 Popular Way to Be a Better Blogger with SlideShare 400,000 new SlideShare presentations are created each month. What SlideShare is, its advantages for bloggers, and a tutorial for how to use this popular, free tool are presented in the article.
Saturday: Blog Party: Meet and Greet 22 It was time for our bimonthly blog party on Saturday. If you did not have a chance to come by and mingle with other bloggers over the weekend, I hope you will drop by. There’s plenty of virtual chocolate mousse left for dessert, and you might increase your readership.
Sunday: 87 Blogging Mistakes You Should Absolutely Never Make I had an exciting Sunday! The post went semi-viral on Flipboard, and I received the second highest page views to my blog since I started blogging. My blogging world turned even more exciting when Flipboard emailed the post to its readers interested in writing on Sunday! [Note: If you are interested in promoting your blog using Flipboard, the instructions are in this post, How to Get Swarms of Free Blog Traffic With Flipboard.]
My first choice for Most Inspirational Post went to Whose Business Are You In? Last month, I explained why I feel High Page Views Are the Greatest Thing in the World. Julia, the admin blogger, took the exact opposite stance. Her post explains why it doesn’t matter if people like your articles or not. She went as far as to explain it is not your business what they think. Worry about writing and not what people think of your writing is her position.
My next choice for Most Inspirational Post went to How to Live Without a Microwave. I don’t know why the admin blogger doesn’t have a microwave. Apparently, she explains that in another post. The truth is it doesn’t matter. Reasons people live without microwaves vary. The blogger explains how to function without one and makes it seem easy.
Last week, we had a whopping 496 posts linked, the highest number in the last two years! The post clicked most often despite all that competition was the 412th post linked, Fall Paper Bag Wreath DIY. Congratulations to all the winners!
For organizing this networking opportunity, it is considered polite to follow your hostess.
That’s me! I’m Janice!
