Time-consuming, isn’t it?
You’re running a blog, and then you must promote it too. Seven days a week simply aren’t enough.
You’re spending hours trying to grow your blog, but it’s possible you’re not getting much return on your time investment. Feeling burnt out would be understandable.
Fortunately, sites exist to help you save time with your blog promotion.
You know how to write a blog post.
You’ve done it before for months or even years.
You can recite the three basic components in your sleep. You research, you write, and you promote.
Wait, there’s more than three facets of blogging. Networking is important too.
What if I told you that information is wrong? There’s another element to your post that is critical to its success.
Some of my readers have expressed that my ideas seem unorthodox. For example, my advice about visiting sites of bloggers that visit you has been questioned. Since Elle Knowles has echoed the same sentiments, I am sharing her post.
Welcome to my brand new series–Reblog Thursday. I have decided to reblog on Thursdays instead of writing original material in order to spend more time networking with my readers.
Are you satisfied with your efforts to grow your blog?
Do you feel you’ve done everything in your power to add new readership?
One way you can get your blog to grow is through referral traffic from blog directories. You can submit your entire blog, or you can submit articles you’ve already written.
This post will show you examples of each.
Unlike guest posts, which usually require you to submit original material, you don’t have to do any additional writing. The work is already done.
All that’s needed is for you to submit to those directories.
This post will introduce you to possibilities to submit both your blog and your individual posts. These directories are possible sources of traffic for you since new readers can find your blog through them.
Welcome to Inspire Me Monday for the week of May 4! Thank you for joining us!
Need more time in your day?
Many content creators complain they don’t have the time it takes to network and promote their content once it’s created.
By following these tips, you will have more time in your day to promote your content, network with other content creators, or simply bask in the sun, if that’s what you please.
Confusing, isn’t it?
On one hand, you hear there is no right way to blog.
On the other hand, you have people like me telling you that there is a right way to blog.
Instead of taking my word for it, let’s look at successful bloggers and see what criteria for successful blogging they are following that make their blogs successful.
After all, if they can follow simple criteria to have thousands of loyal followers, so can you.
You know that Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and LinkedIn can be used to promote your blog. However, most of the articles you see rarely give information about how to use LinkedIn to drive new traffic to your blog.
This post will do just that.
Tempting, isn’t it?
You research, write, and promote your post. You are done. The rest of your life awaits.
However, there’s a nagging ache gnawing at you saying have forgotten an important part of blogging, but what is it?
Then, it dawns on you. Your blogging time is not over. You have forgotten a pivotal part of blogging–networking.
Is it necessary? Is there really a right way to blog?
