My late night is turning into early morning. Insomnia is not a picnic! Since I can't sleep, I have been reading blogs, and researching ways to advertise, promote/market etc.. I have a lot of free time while I recover from the wreck at the end of May, so why not see what positive change I can make with my blogs.
Last night while googling "southern fashion bloggers" I came across a blog "J's Everyday Fashion." In this article http://www.jseverydayfashion.com/2012/01/why-i-blog-on-facebook.html the designer claims that by using her facebook fan page for blogging she increased her fans by 10,000 in just one year! ONE year!! That's pretty amazing!
Her theory is there are a lot of people who use facebook because it is so popular, and blogs can seem foreign to those who aren't apart of the blogosphere world. If you have time, read the article! I found it interesting, and I am going to test her theory and see what happens. Some days I will blog soley on here, other days I will post a blog post on my blog www.MardiRobyn.blogspot.com you may read the same posts on here and there, or you may see fresh content here and new content on my blog. Just depends on the day and my mood. Other days you'll see a repeat of blog posts. Either way it should be fun.
One thing I keep reading is the importance of making a blogging plan, a list of ideas, goals, blog topics, etc.. I use to roll my eyes and inwardly groan "here we go again" everytime I would read a tutorial on blogging that stressed the importance of lists. I would think to myself I don't need them. However the more I read and study the art of blogging, I find myself jotting down ideas. I now have several pages of ideas and I must confess, I am beginning to see the importance!
It is good to have direction in life, we need direction... Even when owning a blog!
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He (God) will direct your paths."
