Do you celebrate your milestones in the blogging world? When a new blog is activated and a first post published, your first fifty or hundred blog post seems a long way off. I believe that if you have a passion for something, be it business related, creative, or personal, then you’re bound to have lots to talk about ….. Then simply write it down. Annette from Under The Loope has reached her hundreth post by writing about her jewellry making. Her designs are fabulous and she has gathered a nice little communtiy of followers who comment on each other’s blogs & encourage each other.
Or how about celebrating a milestone of visitors to your blog. When getting started you feel like a tiny tadpole in the middle of the ocean and wonder if anyone will ever find you & visit. When I first discovered Sew Delish early in 2008 they were celebrating 2000 unique visitors to their blog within a short time of blogging. Sew Delish held a competition to mark the occasion.
There are a zillion blogs out there with expert advice on blogging and how to drive traffic to your blog. I’m certainly not one of those ‘experts’ but I do read blogging tips and take note of ways to get known out in the bloggersphere. I have too much to learn but in time I would hope I had learnt enough to write up & manage a successful blog.
What I see when I visit the blogs I like is that people are writing posts on what they do, things they like, places they’ve been, how they work …… in no time they have written numerous posts. OK, so there’s more to managing a successful blog than writing interesting posts for followers to read, but my post is not about giving you advice on blogging …. I’ll leave that to the ‘experts’.
My point is to say how easy it can be to reach milestones with your blog especially if you’re consistently updating and writing, and commenting on other blogs. If you love what you do and you love to share your news then you too can reach your first hundred posts in no time.
Have fun with your blog and enjoy it …. and let your readers know when you’ve reached a milestone.
ciao for now
