Recently with all the stuff going on in my life, I've had to take a dramatic look at how I run my blog. More often than not, I wrote the post on the day I usually post. This meant if I didn't get time to write the post, I didn't update my blog and I noticed my traffic would suffer.
I've now started scheduling posts, tweets, facebook posts and even keeping spread sheets with traffic, followers and DA scores so I can see at a glance what parts of my blog or social media I need to work on.
I make sure my HootSuite is scheduled with social media links and new blog post promotions at least a week in advance and I don't just post the same link over and over, I like to change the text so my followers don't receive a hundred of the same boring tweet appear in their timelines.
As I mentioned before I've created a spreadsheet with all of my monthly traffic, DA, PA, Back links, social media platform followers and the date. I update this once a month and it gives me a insight into what I need to work on and what has increased or decreased over the month.
I'm not figure driven, I'd much rather get a good response about a post than have a million view figures but if they dramatically decrease or increase it allows me to see why and when it happened, which can help me in future with blog post material.
I always make time to advertise my newest blog posts on facebook blogger groups and comment swaps. I love checking out other blogs and I love getting feedback from other bloggers! I aim to do this at least once every other day, as again I don't want to flood people with my blog.
I do like to add a throwback into the mix too and remind people of some of my older, popular posts.
What organisation tips do you use?
Until next time,
