Email Inbox: Why Do I Reblog So Much?

email-meOn Wednesday I had a reader email me and ask why I reblog so much.  Her question was followed with the fact that she is “a little tired of my inbox being filled at the end of the day with so many reblogs”.

I thought if one person thought this then maybe more thought this as well.  The simple fact is I reblog in order to help bloggers who don’t have a lot of readers.  By connecting people to others I hope to help build our blogging community.  The simple fix to this is to disconnect from receiving email updates and visit my page when you decide to visit.

I had stopped reblogging for a period of time, but find there is a need for someone to help others grow their pages.  And if a reblog helps 1 blogger grow, then I feel I have done my duty.

Hope this helps to clarify.

Leave Me A Link and I’ll Share Your Page!!

As most of my followers know I am big into helping other bloggers gain more exposure. My goal has been to grow a community of like-minded people and I am part way to my goal.  I am bringing back the open call to leave a link and I’ll share it for you!!

The basic rules are simple: leave me a link to your page.  I’m not sure it gets much simpler.  You can leave as many links as you want and I’ll cycle this post from day-to-day so more people can jump on board.  The link post I’ll create will publish on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays.

 

Want To Be Featured on Dream Big? Well, I’m changing Things Up!

Danny's iphone 022As most of my followers know I am big into helping other bloggers gain more exposure. My goal has been to grow a community of like-minded people and I am part way to my goal.  I will no longer be using the “leave a link and I’ll share your blog” tactic.

From now on I am going to share those who interact with my page.  So for those who comment and share my posts I will be selecting from those people to Feature on my page. From comments I will select the comments which convey the spirit of true engagement. From Shares I will randomly select.  So there will be 2 featured posts each day.

Basically I want to reward people who are engaging and sharing.  Good luck!

A Few of My Random Thoughts: 4/25/16

Every month or so I like to take time and evaluate the webpage.  I want to make sure I am providing information and posts that people like and care about.  I also like to let everyone understand what it is that I want to achieve here and provide a posting schedule.

Hopefully this will help everyone understand the method to my madness here on Dream Big.  If you have any ideas, suggestions or topics you would like me to discuss, you can email me!

Update: Why I Blog the Way I Blog: The Method to My Madness

 

Blogging-spock-funny-blogging-meme

I thought it would be nice to provide a little updated information for those that are new to Dream Big as we have added a quite a few new followers to the blog in the last couple of weeks AND my page strategy has changed a little.

What is Dream Big, Dream Often All About?

I focus our conversations around 4 basic topics, all of which have to do with personal development: living a healthy lifestyle, living an organized/goal oriented life, living debt-free and living a life of charity.  I call these the 4 Pillars of Successful Living.

Along with these 4 topics I believe in and use a 6-step formula for helping me to achieve goals:

  1. determine what it is that you want and state it
  2. determine what you are willing to sacrifice to get what you want,
  3. develop a persistent attitude,
  4. have faith,
  5. develop organized planning and
  6. execute.

Because of this formula I will often discuss desire, developing persistence, having faith developing a plan, executing the plan and successful habits.

What Is the Posting Schedule on Dream Big?

Mondays – A Few of My Random Thoughts

Tuesdays – Healthy Living Update

Wednesdays – Dream Big Original

Thursdays – Blogging Tips, Advice and Blog Strategy

Friday-Sunday  I will post on topics within the niche of personal development.

On the 2nd and 4th weekend of every month I conduct a Meet and Greet

 

Each night at 6 pm est, I publish my Featured Blogger segment in which I feature 10 bloggers that have left a link to their page or post on my Let Me Share Your Page post.  I share as a way to give back to the blogging community.  This segment replaces my previous practice of reblogging.  I found reblogging had 2 negative impacts on my page: 1. it distracted from my overall message, and 2. it cluttered up people’s inboxes.

I don’t stray from this schedule so you can expect a post each morning at 6pm est.

I hope this helps some of the new folks to understand my blogging strategy.  I believe every blogger needs to have some type of formula that works for them other than “build it and they will come.”

I thought it would be nice to provide a little information structure for those that are new to DBDO as we have added hundreds of new followers and readers to the blog in the last couple of weeks AND my page strategy has changed a lot since December.

What is Dream Big, Dream Often All About?

I focus our conversations around 4 basic topics, all of which have to do with personal development: living a healthy lifestyle, living an organized/goal oriented life, living debt-free and living a life of charity.  I call these the 4 Pillars of Successful Living.  I not only espouse these, I live them.

I focused on these 4 because my research revealed that these are the 4 basic areas that were common among people who considered themselves unsuccessful or under-achieving.

Along with these 4 topics I believe in and use a 6-step formula for helping me to achieve any goal:

  1. determine what it is that you want and state it
  2. determine what you are willing to sacrifice to get what you want,
  3. develop a persistent attitude,
  4. have faith,
  5. develop organized planning and
  6. execute.

Because of this formula I will often discuss desire, developing persistence, having faith developing a plan, executing the plan and successful habits.

What Is the Posting Schedule on Dream Big?

My posting schedule works as follows: a Dream Big Original at 6am est followed by supporting materialsIMG_7127 such as memes, quotes, reblogs and article shares.  I recycle posts throughout the day to keep things fresh and new.

At 6 pm est, I publish my Featured Blogger segment in which I feature 10 bloggers that have left a link to their page or post.  I share as a way to give back to the blogging community.  This segment replaces my previous practice of reblogging.  I found that the reblogging had 2 negative impacts on my page: 1. it distracted from my overall message, and 2. it cluttered up people’s inboxes.

Lastly, on the 2nd and 4th weekend of every month I conduct a Meet and Greet which allows all bloggers the opportunity to leave a link on my page and meet and find new followers.  This is a great way for others to gain exposure for their page.

I hope this helps some of the new folks to understand my blogging strategy.  I believe every blogger needs to have some type of formula that works for them other than “build it and they will come.”
