Episode I - Blogging Q&A Session
Thank you for all the amazing questions that you sent in this week! Here are just a few of the questions we covered:
GETTING STARTED AND WHAT STEPS TO TAKE AFTER GETTING HOSTING
- How do l get started?
- Could you speak to the wannabe or newbie on beginning a blog? Say crucial first steps to implementing a successful blog?
ENGAGING AND GROWING YOUR AUDIENCE
- What is one area we should be spending time for blog growth--writing more, connecting with other bloggers, guest posting? What is your opinion on the least time for the maximum reader growth?
- How to engage your audience? Because when I ask my email list questions I get crickets ... As well as very few replies to posts despite enticing questions at the end and up to say 5 to 20k views on a post with virtually no comments! What is a blogger to make of that?
- How to use Facebook to promote your blog? Do you use Facebook? For some reason I don't get how to promote on Facebook at all.
MONETIZING YOUR BLOG
- I would like to monetize better, but with the least amount of time possible.
- What are the main things you are making money with at your homestead? How big is it?
- So how do you go about monetization if you’re just starting out or over as in my case, without a 1,000 page views monthly like you say in your blog tutorial?
- How and where to promote an ebook? Even a small one. I'm creating my first this month. With ideas for some in the near future.
- I'm thinking about starting a lifestyle blog. My question is how to start using Pinterest without help from other websites like board booster
- I think you are supposed to daily pin your pins. I have already pinned most of my pictures. What do I do now? Are we supposed to go to our Pinterest board and delete them off and then re-pin them (or re-pin and then delete the duplicates)?
- It seems to be the practice of pining other folks pins to some of your own boards. What is this for? I’m not sure I understand all the reasons or purpose behind this.
- I see Pinterest pictures that are not own someone’s website. Do they post a temporary picture (as in maybe a seasonal image) on their page and pin it to Pinterest and then delete it off their page?
- Help getting added to boards. Building up your Pinterest presence.
- I read people talking about group boards, but don’t understand. How do you find these group boards?
