Do you ever feel like you are working harder than your blog? Like, your blog should be picking up some of the slack so you can enjoy a glass of wine without worrying about spilling all over your laptop?
I hate to tell you this, but you’re going to have to put in a little bit more work before your blog will work harder. Work hard this weekend so you can play harder next week. I put together this short list of articles and blog posts I think will help get you started — I can’t know what your site needs specifically, but hopefully something here speaks to you.
Resources to get your blog to working harder:
- 10 things I wish I knew when I started blogging
- Media kits – why you should have one and what goes in it
- Problogger shared tax information here and here
- How to make product collages for your blog (I use PowerPoint!)
- How to embed Pinterest boards to your blog
- Easily share free printables on your blog (Wordress specific)
- 5 steps to working with brands
- 70 blog topics to keep you going this year (or buy my iPhone app & get 365 ideas!)
- It’s never too late to shape up your blog
And my favorite blogging resource: the BUILD ecourse*. It’s more than an ecourse, it’s a living thing — as in, it keeps growing as more and more content is added to it. Also, the private Facebook group is a mini-mastermind group where BUILDers can ask questions, collaborate with one another, and work through some of the topics covered in the ecourse. Seriously, if you’re like me and want to focus on one topic (for me, that would be focusing on my pillar content) at a time, this ecourse is great because you can jump around the syllabus however you want. Amy has it set up so you can go through it how she set it up OR jump around to what speaks to you that day. There are plenty of video interviews, screencasts showing you how to use different resources, and more. It’s worth the investment. Seriously. Get a taste of the BUILD ecourse with weekly emails from Amy for FREE — check this page for more info on that and how to register for the ecourse.
What could your blog use right now?
*I am a BUILD ecourse contributor and affilaite – if you decide to register for the course and do so through one of the links on this page, I’ll be compensated. If you don’t want me to get anything, go straight to Amy’s site and go through her links. I wouldn’t promote this ecourse if I didn’t think Campfire Chic readers would dig it. All opinions here are my own, naturally.
