After yesterday's checklist on what to consider before you publish, I received some great feedback, and so I decided to follow up with what to consider after you publish.
And for some of us, our families and friends may not know that we blog, for fear of judgement or just not understanding what it is that we do.
However, if our goal is to build readership, and for some of us, sponsorship, then it behooves us to become social media savvy.
If you have not connected your blog to social media accounts, then this a first step. You can find tutorials online that demonstrate step-by-step instructions for installing social media buttons onto your blog posts. Give your readers the opportunity to share your work.
Once you are connected, then you can get started with promotion.
Here are some places where you can post links and begin your journey in blog promotion.
Tomorrow, I will be featuring a piece on social media management and things to consider with each platform.
Which social media platform drives the most traffic to your blog? Do you have favorites?
