It’s Blogger Tip Tuesday again! This week I’m sharing 3 things that I think every blogger should do to increase exposure and stay organized. I’d love to hear your tips! Chime in below 🙂
- Share other bloggers content. I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s worth repeating. I like to go to different blogger support groups I’m a part of on Facebook and choose a few blog posts I enjoyed reading and then tweet them out. In order to make this easy, most bloggers use shareaholic (or something similar, see my post on that here). I love supporting my fellow bloggers and so I make this a regular habit. You should too!
- Schedule blog posts. I’ve talked about both my editorial calendar and Co Schedule previously — I love both. I don’t really think it matter what method you use to schedule your posts, but I do think that taking the time in advance to schedule your posts really helps keep your blogging consistent. Ironically, this post is one of the very rare times that my post wasn’t prescheduled. But in general, all of my posts are presceduled and this allows me to plan my blogging week (or month, but I’m never that far ahead!). It also helps me to come up with posting ideas — when I can see a week spread out in front of me, I can fill in gaps.
- Link to older posts! When you reference one of your previous posts in a blog post, you should link to it (like I did above). There’s a strong chance that a reader may have missed a post, so linking to it will allow them to easily read the post you are referencing — this also gives your blog more page views and encourages your readers to spend more time on your blog. I will usually click a link to a previous post within a blog post — especially if I think I missed that post the first time around!
What is something you do that you think every blogger should also do?
