If you don’t know, I manage a lot of different blogs for both myself and various clients. And speaking from experience, it pays to set up a routine publishing schedule for a blog, especially if you’re trying to build a following.
I figured I would provide a bit of an update on my little experiment of writing 90 blog posts in 30 days. Yes, there have been a few days when I wanted to be done and was ready to give up. But, I then thought about the bragging rights this will give me. After 7 days of blogging, things are looking up.
posts every day for three different websites over the span of 30 days.
I recently ran an experiment of writing on CrossingColorado.com for 30 days. The idea was to see how much of a difference it makes blogging every day for a website that has been around for a while. Today, I’ll share the results and talk about where I’ll go from here.
So, I didn’t meet my goals last month for writing a certain number of words. But, it wasn’t because I was lazy or forgetful. No, this time around, I had a lot of other stuff that needed to be done. Now that some of that stuff is out of the way, I’m doing another experiment for blogging.
One of the first blogging platforms I’ve used is Vocal. This was before I started dumping more time and effort into clients and my own blogs. As my time was more profitable in those avenues, I really haven’t done much with my Vocal account…until now.
One of my goals for 2021 is to get CrossingColorado close to where it was before Google torpedoed it. The site isn’t completely sunk, and I plan on rebuilding the blog. It’s part of paying as much attention to myself as I do clients.
After the algorithm change in 2019, Google sunk my flagship blog, Crossing Colorado. Since then, I’ve put a lot more effort into building WriterSanctuary as a brand. However, I would still like to refurbish the blog in 2021 and put my skills to the test.
Since I enjoyed the last blogging experiment, I’ve decided to do another. But this time, I’m going to see how much of an impact consistent blogging makes in terms of traffic growth and average search result position. This means I need to hunker down quite a bit.
