Writing and posting a daily blog is only part of the picture
There is a lot more you need to do to get your blog seem. I am still learning this so I haven’t been doing it either. You need to remember you should consistently be doing four things:
- promoting your latest blog posts
- promoting old blog posts (otherwise they’ll get lost and never be seen again!)
- connecting with other bloggers and their blogs
- sharing other bloggers’ content (what goes around comes around!)
Promoting you latest Post
You need to share your blog post on social media like Facebook, Google +, Twitter, Pinterest, StumbleUpon or any others you are on.
You also need to be re-sharing old posts on social media because
- they get lost in the news feeds
- Not everyone see it when you share it the first time
- You put in the effort to create it share it again or it will get lost.
Connect with other Bloggers
Choose some posts/bloggers that interest you. and make the effort to leave each blogger a genuine comment on their post. Comments that just say ‘great blog!’ or ‘thanks for sharing’ are pretty useless – they’re not helpful, and they don’t show that you’ve even read the post. What you need to do is leave comments that are at least a couple of sentences, which show that you’ve actually paid attention, and that you’re actually trying to make a connection with them – something more like ‘I like what you’ve said about …….. in your post I hadn’t look at it in that way before” Make sure it is related to the post and shows you are interested in what they’ve said.
Sharing Other Bloggers’ content
Make sure you share other peoples content. You can do this by sharing their links on social media or sharing their content in your blog. There is a good reason for this, it is the law of attraction. What you give out will come back to you or put another way. What goes round comes round. Also give credit where credit is due. For example most of the information for this blog came from Becca at Amuse Your Bouche. Please checkout her blog on this topic.
There’s a few things you should think about when sharing blog posts, whether they’re yours or someone else’s.
- Think carefully about where you’re sharing and how often you’re sharing. It’s OK to tweet multiple times each day, but if you post to Facebook too often, you risk annoying your followers. Try not to post to Facebook more than about 2-3 times a day max.
- Make sure you give credit where credit is due – if possible, tag the owner of the blog post (this mostly applies to Twitter and Facebook).
- Don’t share other people’s content in places where it might be assumed you’re taking credit for their work.
- Don’t post everything all at once – if you’re planning on tweeting ten times in one day, for example, spread your tweets out through the day. Not only is there less chance of you annoying someone by flooding their feed, you’re also more likely to be seen by more people. If you’re not online all day long, you can use a service such as Hootsuite or Buffer to schedule posts to go out at various intervals throughout the day.
All this may seem to be a lot work, but by spending just half an hour or so every day on sharing content, you’ll get so many benefits!
Good luck with your blogging and sharing
have an amazing day
