Ok I'm gonna be giving all this a go this weekend.….
I've decided blogger is a bit basic for my needs and its time to move on! I have my custom domain setup (which just means my own website with a unique name) and I'm ready to take the plunge and setup a blog the "proper" full on way!
Found this really great little quick start guide to making a killer blog post! I love these infographics - the visual style the information is presented in really appeals to me, hope you find it useful - click the link below for the full story... http://wallblog.co.uk/2014/01/23/infographic-secrets-of-a-killer-blog-post/ thanks for reading and let me know if you find this useful or have any other ideas :) thanks JC
Hi all, I have been watching this great little udemy course "How to create websites using Blogger" at the following link: https://www.udemy.com/howtocreatewebsitesusingblogger/ I've found it really useful so far, some of the stuff I knew already, but it's filling in some blanks for me and everything is very clearly explained - enjoying it so far! Check it out and let me know if it's been helpful or if you have found something similar/better? thanks JC
Hi, So have you done your homework? How much market research have you done into your blogging today? Do you have an effective routine for checking other blogs? ...you do read blogs right? If you don't, or don't know what I'm talking about then check the link below. This really helps to give some perspective on a routine which has helped a pro-blogger to up their game - and made me realise how I need to adapt my routine. Let me know if you have a routine similar to this - or a different approach? Enjoy! (link below) thanks JC Blog checking routine
Have you been wondering where you are going wrong with your blogging? Have you given any thought to why yours "isn't like all the "proper" bloggers" sites? Or are you just generally wondering if anyone is ever going to read your blog? Turns out there are a few tricks the pro's use which make sense to try - go on give it a go - see if you get an improvement - like many of these links I share I will try and put them into practice here for you! I hadn't considered many of the points mentioned here - there are some really useful ideas - I would say make sure you check through all these points before you post! Have a look and let me know your thoughts... thanks JC 93% of Bloggers Are Clueless About These Crucial Blog Post Ingredients: http://www.postplanner.com/bloggers-clueless-about-key-blog-post-ingredients/?utm_reader=feedly
