I know there’s no shortage of expert advice out there for bloggers. One of the best pieces of advice I can give is to come up with a posting schedule. You want it to be something that works for you and something that you can deliver consistently. If you have one day to write, I suggest scheduling the posts for the week if it makes it easier than writing every day.

Last year I participated in the A-Z Challenge and it was the perfect way to help me meet my blogging goal of posting daily. I got to meet a lot of bloggers in the process, discover new blogs to follow, and make some great connections!

If you’re not familiar with her or her work, listen to the interview from the beginning. For those of you that are, I’ve started the video just after she tells about her story. She provides an amazing array of knowledge in this short amount of time, well worth the watch!
I have to say, when I started blogging earlier in the year I thought the social media I had at the time was more than enough! I was on Facebook and Pinterest personally and decided to start a Facebook page for my blog and patted myself on the back. I’m not on Instagram and Twitter was something I tried when it first came out.
