Blogger’s Pit Stop #16 – Welcome
Blogger’s Pit Stop is open from 9 pm ET(US Thur) 11 am(AUS Friday) and Closes 3 am Monday ET(US) 5 pm(AUS)
Congratulations to the Bloggers who have learned the value of engagement.
We love blogging! But it is no secret that it is hard work. This Pit Stop is here to assist you to build greatness. You have all heard the saying ‘You can lead a horse to water but you cannot make it drink.’ I saw a quote that Julie used last week, ‘You can make a horse drink if you salt its food enough‘
You have generally been quite good exercising engagement, but it is time to build it up even more. The Pit Stop is more than a Link Party, we are here to encourage each other and build each other up. If you quickly slip in and out – you are just spinning your wheels. Get real traction by visiting a few posts and if you appreciate the content leave a comment.
Here is a challenge: last week we had 96 awesome posts. When I subtract the clicks that our Pit Stop Crew made, there were 40 clicks, leaving an average of less than half a click for each post. (It was a lot better average the week before) Let’s have some personal growth and make awesome happen.
How about we raise the clicks, to two (2) clicks per post. That means that for every post we enter we visit two others.
What a great way to support our fellow bloggers- Consistency is what builds greatness.
The Pit Stop Crew are bloggers who collectively have significant blogging experience. We don’t know it all! We are willing to step out and try new things, to think outside the box. If something does not work we move on to more innovative solutions. All the way we are learning and going forward. Each week you will find constructive posts that relate to Blogging. We hope you will glean information to assist you to re-charge your blogging battery, or to fill up with motivation fuel, help to change a tire, find a higher gear, or reset your GPS.
Bring your posts, they can be on any subject that is family friendly –
Affiliate links within content posts are OK. (Exceptions: No direct sales or shops.) Giveaways must have a content post.
Dear bloggers, you are the reason we are here, and we are super excited to open up to you the benefits of joining the Blogger’s Pit Stop.
