We’re now two months into the revised strategy of Blogging Flail, and I can’t believe what opportunities were in store for me this past month.
When I started my strategy, in early December 2014, I was getting zero engagement on this blog. OK zero may be an over exaggeration, but I wouldn’t say one comment a month is something to write home about.
Now it seems every time I write a post, I’m responding to 15 – 20 comments, thanking people on social media for sharing my content, and getting a number of new followers on both Twitter and Google Plus.
Is my strategy working?
I think it’s safe to say it is so far.
Let’s talk about some highlights for the month of January.
January was quite the month for me.
I didn’t really change my approach much from December. The focus was still on networking, primarily through blog commenting. It still amazes me how such a simple concept can provide so many opportunities.
Speaking of opportunities, take a look at what happened:
- I received my first backlink early in the month
- I received my second backlink a few weeks after the first
- I was invited to participate in a private networking group with other key bloggers
- I was mentioned in a Podcast
Now instead of going on and on, and giving all kinds of details on each of the above bullets, I thought it would make better sense to focus on how each of these things happened.
Two words – blog commenting.
Edit – I offer some more insight into this as part of my newsletter, but you’ll need to subscriber to get those details.
The power of blog commenting, do not underestimate it.
