I just started my own blog

15 replies
Hey everyone. I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone here, for giving me so much great advice over the past couple weeks. I have truly come a long way.

I was having so much trouble figuring out how to get something in my sig box leading people to see what I do best. I have just posted my first blog, and will write in it and update it everyday. I just wanted to share the news with everyone. I am as excited, as a kid in a candy store for the first time
If you decide to take a look, please let me know what you think of it.

Thanks so much
-Cindy

    Good job getting started!

    You know, blogspot makes it easy to add adsense to your blog. If your product does not convert, you may want to consider just posting all kinds of love letters and writing tips and going that route.

    I highly suggest you get a couple more posts on there and start driving traffic.

    Don't be afraid to add a call to action in a widget. Something like "want to know how to write love letters like the pros? click here" (I'm sure you can do better. )

        Widgets are things you can drag or add into your sidebar on the back end. Like your calendar, or an area to show your blogroll, or a box for text.

    • Looks like a good blog, and I think you will have fun with it. Just remembering blogging is a community project. So try ad get involved with some other blogs related to yours. That will help you increase your traffic.

    Nice work getting started, I think you'll find something fairly cathartic about writing a blog on a daily basis. Enjoy the ride!

    Good luck, Cindy. I have some advice. Discipline yourself to write something every day. I fail miserably there. It was like Twitter. It was fun for a while, but other stuff got in the way and pretty soon I was ignoring it to concentrate on selling. Now, I can't take time away from selling, as it's my income...so I am going to get up a half hour earlier and write a blog post. Good slightly late New years Resolution, huh?

    Anyway, good luck and stay with it.

    Congratulations!

    As a former full time writer, let me simply say...

    1) Write every day.
    2) Read every day.
    3) Hold nothing back. The only good writing, is passionate writing. Period.

    Good luck, and enjoy the journey!

      Yes, I have to add them. I do have some ready. I just had a lot to do today. I started out small, but I know I will get there I keep my thoughts positive that's the only way to look at things in life!
