Now let’s be honest, you don’t always want to write, it can get a bit much, however there are things that you can do besides writing! I know from personal experience that we can get very caught up in writing because it is such a huge part of blogging. Never fear, there is always lots of things that you can do outside of blog posts. Ready for this? Then let’s go!
I find this such an important step for me because I find it helps me to get everything done! I want to make sure that I have a title, what the post is going to be about and how I am going to set it out with what type of photo I’m going to have. That way when it comes to finally writing a post you won’t have too much work to do because you’ve done all the ground work.
Update Old Photos
I love doing this because it personally shows me how far I have come on my journey, especially with my photography. You can do a variety of different things, for example edit and filter old photos or re stage the photos!
Work On Your Target Audience
This is something that is so important because you need to know who you are actually writing to on a weekly basis. I look at who has been reading my blog through Google Analytics, the age demographic, where they’re from, their interests & everything. Your target audience is so important to you, please don’t ever forget it!
Check Broken Links
This is so damn important, especially with your domain authority! If you’ve just changed over to your domain then this is really important because when I did a few of my links actually got broken, not intentionally, however it does happen on the odd occasion.
I notice a massive difference in my blog views when I have actually taken the time to schedule tweets, I think it is so important in general to do this. However it does take a bit of time, I personally use TweetDeck as it is free and I’ve never actually had any problems with them!
Work On Social Media
Pinterest is something that I am still getting the hang of, however I am doing it! Sort of. Anyway, you can do this in a variety of different ways, especially with Twitter, Twitter is a fabulous source of views for me, however it does take a lot of work. You want to make sure that your feed isn’t saturated with blog links because it makes it literally unreadable and people won’t want to click. YOU WANT THEM TO CLICK ON YOUR BLOG!
There are lots of things that you can do and improve, for example if you’re not clear on things like SEO or you want to brush up on your photography then there is something you can do. There are so many different skills that you use when you’re blogging brushing up on some skills can really help!
