For the first time, I have linked my blog to other platforms and although it felt great, felt very weird. I have had this space to write for a few years now but only two days ago felt like it was the right time to push it further and export to social media. I saw a surge in views in doing so, in fact despite not posting anything yesterday it was my biggest day for views.
I have read all your feedback regarding what to do next now that I am publicizing posts, and I thank everyone that contributed to this. I have literally hundreds of comments on my last post helping me out with advice and personal experience moving forward and it has given me a much better insight as to what to do next.
Many of you use social media to share your blogs. Some find certain platforms better than others, I guess it depends on the style of blog as well as a bunch of other factors. But what is a common theme is that it has been really beneficial moving forward. It opens up a whole new world of potential readers and for that it would be silly not to. That is of course if the aim is to grow your blog. Not everyone has this desire.
Since doing so I have had a surge in views. Like I mentioned earlier, I had more views yesterday than I ever have previously. This shows how impactful Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and the like are with such huge audiences. They are also platforms that we have well established over the years, it isn’t like we are building these up from scratch.
What I also learned through your feedback is that most of you wouldn’t mind if I took a step back from daily posts and maybe limiting it to 3-4 times a week instead, many of you stating this may even be better in the long run. Not posting yesterday was a great way for me to take a breather and dedicate a day to comments and more engagement on WordPress and other social media. It means I have longer to think up posts without rushing them out there, as well as balance my time between WP, Insta, Twitter and FB. This was my main fear publicizing, blogging daily and finding time to use all of these.
So here is the new plan:
Tuesday: Don’t blog
Thursday: Don’t blog
Saturday: Don’t Blog
It’s like a shit Craig David song however I feel it will be really beneficial for me now that I am using more than just WP. And thanks for your help coming to this conclusion, it really is appreciated.
Thank you again to all my followers and regular readers, and hello to you if you are new to my blog!
