Blogging 300

What I’ve learned.

I’m no blogging expert and I learn new things each day. That’s really the first lesson. There isn’t just one way of blogging, it really is all about what works best for you. There are a few things I wish I had done different when I started my blog.

The first thing I regret was not picking my platforms and interlinking them from the start. I made a blog on WordPress and that was it. It never occurred to me that I might want my posts to automatically push to other websites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and tumblr. After my blog got going, about a year and a half in, I really regretted not making those accounts. Here’s the thing. There are only so many hours in the day and unless you run a team you can’t implement all the platforms out there (I run alone). Not unless you spend some time creating all the accounts and then linking them, but here’s the thing. Lots of these websites, like WordPress, require some type of presence and action from you as the user to get interaction back. That takes time. That is why I say you need a team or you do what I did and simply pick your favorites.

I’ve grown to enjoy Facebook and I’m on there more often. You can find my info under my contacts link on the menu bar. I also use tumblr, google plus, Twitter, and some other websites to boost, but my audience base for this blog is still 99% WordPress users. If you are starting off a blog you hope to take to a certain level for whatever reason think about creating the sites identity first. Make the name and secure it. Go ahead and create the accounts to interlock them with your WP site and ensure the availability of the domain. TheWorldsGreatestAsian.com may not be available for whatever reason…

  2. You can actually get a reasonably time efficient presence with some automation and by using your mobile phone. Automation can be scheduling posts, automating retweets and so on while the mobile phone allows you to interact while you are stuck in traffic or enjoying a coffee. I have presence on facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, G+, LinkedIn, Instagram and it takes me only an hour or so per day. Enjoy!
