How To Stick To A Consistent Blogging And Commenting Schedule
The reason for blogging on a schedule is that it allows readers to trust that they can come to our blogs on a regular, or even semi-regular basis, and see new posts. Consistent blogging will help with building trust and relationships, with driving traffic to your blog, with helping your SEO, and with making you look like an authority on the subject(s) you choose to write about.
How to Perfect Your About Me Page
About Me pages are often the second thing readers go to on your blog. The first is a post that someone shared on Facebook, pinned on Pinterest, or found in a Google search. Once the reader is drawn in, they want to know more about YOU: who you are, what you’re about, and what YOUR story is. That’s where the About Me page comes in.
Planning A Successful Post Series On Your Blog
A blog post series is great to draw your readers into your blog in a deeper way, increase pageviews, and have space to delve deeply into a topic without overwhelming people. It is also a fantastic way to plan content ahead of time.
5 Ways to Increase Your Newsletter Subscribers
You work hard to increase your social media followings and your blog’s traffic, but are you paying attention to the one of the most important numbers? Your email list. No matter what happens, your email list is something you can take with you. If you change urls, if all of social media shuts down tomorrow, if you change your entire internet strategy, your email list will still be there and usable.
Maintaining A Low Bounce Rate
One of the important things you will notice when you look at your Google Analytics is Bounce Rate. Unlike most numbers in the blog world, with bounce rate, the lower it is, the better.
