Are You Frustrated?
Are you confused by all the conflicting words of advice out there on How to Blog? You’re not alone. I know the more I read, sometimes the less I feel I know. And yet, we know that websites with a blog get approximately 55% more traffic than websites without a blog. Even if no one reads it! Why? Because a blog continually shows new content being added to your website. And search engine algorithms love new content!
Today, authors, artists and business owners are expected to be quite self-reliant when it comes to marketing, including regular blog posts. Did I just see you cringe? For some people, it’s the ultimate in torture.
