5 Things I Learnt From #BlogChat

I’m a sporadic blogger for whom it’s more of an interest than a full time or part time job/source of income. It’s no surprise then that my blog is about ‘this, that and everything in between’. However I love creating and sharing content. It could be about anything – a thought, provocative or not; helpful tips; things I’ve read and found interesting; my travel experiences – and the list could go on.

But I have been wanting to blog about my work as an Alternative Healing Practitioner and the one question that has kept me from writing about my experiences is – should it be under a category in my current blog or a new blog dedicated solely to this subject? This question was also my reason to follow and participate in #BlogChat today because here are some awesome tips and perspectives.

First to address the answers to my question… Thank you so much Amy Taylor (@NoMeatballs), Fadra Nally (@allthingsfadra), CuteFace ChubbyWaist (@UneekDiva).

I’m going to start with a category in my current blog and move it to a space of it’s own if the need arises. It may pose a problem of followers… But we’ll cross that bridge when we reach it. Can think of a few ways to deal with that hurdle, one of which could be reblogging. And of course, the idea of guest blogging given by Zully H (@zoolsterr)

Moving on from my troubles to those of others, here few interesting and helpful tweets about increasing the number of shares on your blogs by Mack Collier (@MackCollier) and Amy Taylor (@NoMeatballs)

And in reply to the perennial ‘how often should I publish posts on my blog?’ Ray Gordon (@RayJGordon) says –

But with sharing comes traffic and also followers. Yes in numerical terms the larger the number the better it’s considered. But Pam Moore (@PamMktgNut) does warn us about keeping an eye on quality over quantity.

And my final thanks to Amy Taylor (@NoMeatballs) again for the idea for this post.
