NEED A BOOST?
Today I wanted to share with you ways you can boost your blog that are so simple to do! If you have the extra time I’d really try a few of these out, as they help drive more traffic to your blog and really just over all help the asthetic of it. I’ve been working on several of these myself.
PROMOTE OLD POSTS
So you write a post, and that’s it. Not at all! Don’t make this mistake that’s all too common in the blogging world. By promiting old posts via Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram you’re actually helping your blog out by increasing traffic. You’re also potentially reaching out to new readers, and followers.
I also love to schedule out my old posts, just like I do with fresh content. It helps out a lot, especially on those days your feeling under the weather and haven’t wrote a new post! Some great apps to use for this are; TweetDeck, HootSuit, or even just your note app!
Tedious, but oh so good for your posts! Photos are essintially what pulls in a reader. If they aren’t up to par with your amazing content, people may shy away from reading. Also over time the quality changes after you’ve gained more experience with capturing shots. So go through your blog and jot down posts that need a little face lift. This is great to do on days you’ve not much going on!
SPRUCE UP OLD POSTS
Sit down one morning and check the grammer of your old posts! There is nothing like being so passionate about a post you’re writing and overlooking those terrible grammer mistakes! If you’re trying to monetize your blog this a good tip, for the fact that companies usually refrain from working with bloggers who seem unprofessional. Grammical errors are a red flag! Bust out those spellcheckers yall!
INVEST IN A LAYOUT
It’s imperative that you have a great layout for your blog! Readers tend to pass over poorly desinged blogs as they may not be easy for them to read. Having a nice clean layout that is easy to navigate is a must for bloggers! Not sure where to start looking for a layout? Or for that matter don’t want to drop a ton on a nice one? Check out Etsy! They have several cute layouts that are budget friendly!
FOLLOW NEW BLOGS
Hows does this boost your blog you ask? By following new blogs and engaing with content you love, your not only making new blogger friends, you’re helping grow your audience! I always make it a point to follow atleast 2 new blogs on weekly basis. Let me tell yall there are so many great blogs out there! I have so much fun seeing other peoples styles of writing, and photography
