Today I “committed” to boosting my blog’s popularity and expand my readership beyond, my Mom, the Boy, his Mom, and my sister, with the ultimate goal to be featured on Freshly Pressed.
What did I find tonight while logged on to write my post for tomorrow… an article from the WordPress newsletter – How to get Published on Freshly Pressed! Kismet is what I think they call that.
The low down, it’s all about the tags, keeping posts clean, inspiring or funny, provide images – preferably your own, but if not referenced to the source, and spell-checked.
Well, now that I know what I need to do – I’m one step closer.
Thanks also to Weldon from welldoneweldon (Tip 4 – thank your readers who comment, and mention them in future posts) for the tip of commenting on other blogs and engaging in the online community as a means to promote your own blog. It’s a good tip – we’ll call it #5 and reminded me of another one I read (Tip 6) ask other bloggers with similar themes to add you to their blogroll – and you will do the same.
I’ll be on Oprah in no time!
