The second new year resolution I will be covering will be on the blog. As the blog is where the experiences come alive, it makes sense to cover the blog. Being successful at blogging isn’t always an easy task and is something I would like to accomplish in 2020. It’s been years since this blog started and there’s still a lot of work left to do. Despite what needs to be done on the blog, there is still time to get things right, especially in the new year.
Other bloggers, such as Jenny in Neverland have already covered some great tips on how to get your blog ready for 2020, which you can find here. Anyway, let’s get on with my plan that will (hopefully) help me be more successful in 2020.
First, there needs to be more posts from me. Unfortunately, over the past few years there hasn’t been enough content. Hopefully into the new year, there will be more from me on different experiences and topics. I do feel there is a lot of exploring to do to bridge this gap of lack of posts.
One way to increase content is to write and get many posts ready weeks before releasing, this way there is always something being posted with room for self-development and other responsibilities. When used with the schedualing tools on WordPress, this is actually easily done.
Similarly, by releasing smaller bitsized posts, new content will be released quicker. Bigger blog posts takes a huge amount of time to write and give too much written information, which other people will probably not read.
Secondly, if you haven’t noticed, I don’t have much visual content on my posts. Too much written content can be difficult to get through and really doesn’t sink in.
During 2020, I will be attempting to concise my posts points into visuals that are easy to understand and follow with simplistic language. In a previous post, I did turn the tips I gave on phishing emails into a series of simple visuals, which you can find in the post here.
More User Involvement / Growth
The final point is getting more involved with you, the readers and blog supporters. Obviously, there has been progress with the guest post page and more social media posts’ but it doesn’t stop there. A lot more work needs to be done to draw in more collaboration with others. Plenty of work is needed still if I’m going to expand my blogs audience.
A small way to get more user involvement is by starting discussions and conversations with a variety of people. Emailing brands, companies and other bloggers is a great way to start but make sure you approach them properly. Many times, I’ve found myself losing contact with brands because of my lack of professionalism. Tips on how to best contact other brands and PR can be found here.
Similarly, with more conversations there will be plenty of growth. Any blogs aim is to get a larger audience over time, which is why these conversations and other points are essential.
