This really bugs me! My blog posts are already terrific! Why do they need improvement? Who am I kidding? Every day an earnest effort is made to seek and find ways to get traffic to my already terrific blog. Since statistics show that every 2 out of 8 American people blog, that indicates two things. Number One: The competition is fierce. Number Two: They can’t all be doing it for fun. It must have income earning potential. Nobody has that much time on their hands. I’m a realist.
My mission – which I have decided to accept – is to locate those who hold the keys to successful blogging and unlock my blogging box with them. What? It’s not unethical. I’m not stealing the keys. Just borrowing them. 🙂
Anyway guess what I found today? YATTL. Yet Another Top 10 List on increasing your blogs’ traffic. Yes of course we’ve all read a bazillion of those tips. But never say never. Did an examination of this list to see if the ten listed procedures were already being fully implemented at my blogs. The results are my evaluation are as follows:
Technically Tip One is being done. Sort of. The first tip is about creating a niche. My brain is sometimes scattered. OK. Most of the time my brain is scattered. But I prefer to use the term “freestyle”. My niche is writing whatever people will read, and people read about all kinds of stuff.
Tip Number Seven: Create a forum. Personally, in my humble opinion, omitting this step will not make or break a blog. Also … quite frankly, I don’t know how to do it.
The only advice that isn’t being followed is Tip Nine: Guest Blogging. I don’t do guest blogging at other blogs.
Which begs my question to myself: Do I improve my blog posts or my blog? I choose to improve my blog. As such, I am very willing to allow guest bloggers to post at my various blogs. The most recent guest blog post at Express Yourself!, my Tumblr blog, was published March 2014. It was about celebrating age. Did you know that 2014 is the year of the older model? Modeling agencies are adapting because they realized that many of their clients have customers who have celebrated their 28th birthday several times and they’re still hot! It was such an honor when a guest blogger took notice of my blog and asked to submit a post. My blog? Really? Of course, my enthusiasm was masked with a cool, calm, reserved professional and courteous response to the author’s eMail.
Which blog? What’s your post about? How fast can you deliver?
But my inner blogger was going: You want to trust me with your business reputation and present your content at my blog? YES! YES !YES!! Huge thanks in rainbow colors!!
