Thank you so much for sharing with us at Merry Monday. We hope you’ll come to the new party. We’re celebrating our anniversary with a big Giveaway.
Hi Dawn! I think A LOT of people went into blogging for monetization of the blog, which I am afraid was probably why there were so many disappointed bloggers, lol. Firstly, let me tell you I am late to everything, I completely missed Myspace which now I think was probably a good thing, I never did Livejournal or forums, I am terrible at Twitter and Facebook? Gah! We will get into Facebook for business in the coming weeks as we start or own (very late) foray into that for Foto Rx! I think I mentioned in the comments about blogs + SEO (how us Googler’s find folks) and I definitely want to speak to that. I think now if you want to build an audience for your business you need at least one of the extra’s to get people over (the extra’s being Instagram, FB, Gooogle+, Pinterest, etc.) BUT once you get them over it better be darn good info one offer’s up or else they probably will lose that person forever. I am so glad you joined the conversation and were so honest, it really helps us develop posts, because we LOVE helping people and I think we can add a little of our knowledge + experience to this!Learn SEO
What are the strategies that you are using for social media in terms of your blogs ?
Any advice that you would like to give for this year 2018 ?
I’ve been reading your blog for about 6 months now and I’ve bookmarked it and often have it open on at least one of my screens. I also write for my own blog and whenever I have to be absent for an extended period I always let readers know that I just won’t be available. The pressure to feel I must write to keep connected with them is real but then I always come back to what I told myself when I first started writing, “I write first and foremost for me, then for those that will read it.” Always in that order or else I lose focus. I read this post with relish as well as each and every one of the comments. Love your blog and your vibe and wishing you all the best!
Great message! I’m pretty sure that for me blogging fulfills my life long interest in money and helping other people with how to properly handle it.
Oh these are super cool! I’ve never really looked at our social media marketing budget before and I think it’s about time I did 🙂 Thanks Ciera!social media marketing miami
Well hosting is the first thing which should be considered for every new blog is started. Because 100% uptime is needed to get our blog run better. Although all the bloggers choose HostGator first which is awesome in all things such as support and cost too.domain registration australia
