Part-Time Blogger / Full-Time Worker

Trying to maintain a successful blog is a challenge. On top of creating great content for your site, you need to network, reply to comments, comment on other blogs, and maintain all the technical aspects of your site.

Holding down a full-time job while trying to maintain a successful blog is an even bigger challenge. Here are a handful of things that I do to make that challenge a little less stressful.

Can you do it? Sure you can, quite a few successful bloggers are in the same boat. Bloggers like:

+Kevin Duncan +Richard Martin +Luke Jordan +Steven J Wilson +Lisa Sicard 

All of the above are mentioned in this post...

Don't Panic - But You Just Lost Your First Email Subscriber

Think back to when you first started your blog. What was your reaction when you lost that first email subscriber? Were you pissed? In shock or disbelief? Or may it was just "whatever", it's all part of blogging.

For those bloggers that are just starting out building an email list, the day will come when you loose that first subscriber. Don't panic, you're better off without them.

So +Luke Jordan has given me a bit of a challenge in sharing his great post on Search Engine Optimization.

I've been asked to share with 3 other bloggers, so I'm singling out the first 3 posts I'm seeing in one of my blogging circles.

+Rebecca Brosemer +Cendrine Marrouat +Renard Moreau 

Read Luke's post, and leave him a comment letting him know what you think.
Dear Bloggers: It's Time You Learned About This
http://intergeek.co.uk/dear-bloggers-time-learned-search/

Stop fretting. Stop ignoring it. SEO is nothing to be afraid of; it's easy when you know how - trust me!

Once you've read the post, pass it on to three other bloggers - big or small! Let's work together and take our piece of the search engine pie away from those big sites :) mmm...search engine pie is my favourite!

I'll start:
+James McAllister - me and James had a fun chat about the pros/cons of SEO over at his site. In fact, it's where I devised my 'shop in the middle of nowhere' analogy from for this post.

+Andrea Beltrami - Andrea accused me of using 'Jedi mind tricks' to try and get her to optimise her site. Well, now I'm using brute force - stop playing around with Photoshop already!

+Craig Emerson - Craig has been rocking it by getting his first backlinks recently. In time, combined with other SEO efforts, he'll start to reap the rewards of increased exposure. Right on brotha!

Are You A Creeper

Don't be a creeper!

Giving Up On My Blog Helped Me Increase Engagement by 200% (In Just 30 Days)

Yep - I pretty much gave up on my blog at the end of Nov. 2014. That was before I discovered this thing called "networking". Kind of glad I decided to stick with it.

Take a look on how networking helped increase engagement on my site by over 200%, in just over a month.
