I am 2 weeks behind on my reblogs as the requests are coming across faster than I can keep up. I don’t want to create the lists as they don’t seem as personal and I want each blogger to get their own “advertisement” for their page; I want it to be specific to them so they get the notoriety.
So today I am going to reblogging a bunch in order to catch up. I really hope this doesn’t piss someone off, but ultimately I guess they can choose to ignore them. I think the good that is done outweighs the aggravation in others.
I thought it would be nice to provide a little information structure for those that are new to DBDO as we have added a lot of new followers and readers to the blog in the last couple of weeks.
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 focus on these 4 because my research has 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 my goals:
Because of this formula I will often discuss desire, developing persistence, having faith (which happens to be yesterday’s TOTD) developing a plan or executing the plan.
I post a Dream Big Original each morning at 6am est. I then use reblogged articles to provide supporting material for the Topic of the Day.
After 4:30 pm I conduct an Open Blog Night for reblogging which allows me to share random reblogs I have enjoyed reading during my early morning networking session and from those that have requested a reblog. Each morning I read 100 blogs from those that follow me and note which ones caught my eye and then reblog them at night. Not only does this provide me fun reblog material, but it also allows me to keep in contact with all of the bloggers that follow me throughout the month. I wish I could get to everyone more often but I simply cannot.
Also, 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.”
Happy Thursday, friends! I hope you enjoyed this week as I have certainly enjoyed sharing it with you. With my first year of blogging complete, I wanted to find a way to use the knowledge that I gained to help others who may be considering this process. So, I put together a few tips that I learned this year. Check out below for ways to guide you through your first year of blogging!
