Hi friends!
I had one of you email me asking for advice about starting your own blog.  Here is a little advice.
  • Know your topic and style beforehand.
  • Blog regularly or you'll lose readers
  • Keep your posts short enough that busy people will read them
  • Throw in a little personal touch and connection- not just strictly business and SLP stuff - a little personal flavor keeps people connected to the blog.
  • Look at and comment on others' blogs and they will do the same for you.
  • Keep your posts relevant and helpful/functional.
  • Label your posts at the bottom so people will find your blog when Google searching.
  • Get followers- through give-aways that require following, and networking with other blogs, and of course having a following button somewhere on the blog
  • Tweet posts or put them on facebook to get more traffic.
  • Encourage comments.
  • Keep the blog looking clean and attractive.
Also, my blog buddy Kim posted a FABULOUS post about this same topic- I highly recommend it for any of you who are interested:  click here



  1. I think one of the best things you can do is actually post stuff, he he he.
