What to Do When NO ONE is Reading Your Blog…

What to Do When NO ONE is Reading Your Blog…

  Let’s be real for a minute here.   If your main reason for starting your blog was to:   • Put yourself out there • Share valuable information with others • Reach out to people who need help and inspiration   NOTHING is worse than feeling like no one is reading your blog.   Ever felt that way before? I have. And yea, it sucks.   It’s especially painful when you’ve spent hours and hours brainstorming, researching, drafting, editing, taking photos, publishing, and promoting – and the response is still a round of crickets.   I spent years blogging to an audience of about 3 people (give or take a few), and you know what? I felt super crappy, plain and simple. Especially when I KNEW my content would […]

Pinterest Group Boards: How to Grow Your Traffic Exponentially

Pinterest group boards are one of my blogging “secret weapons”. When used properly, group boards can drive massive traffic back to your blog, your opt-in freebies, and your products or services.   I get a lot of questions about Pinterest group boards, both from other bloggers and my coaching clients. Questions like…   “How do I find the right group boards to join?”   “Once I’ve found the right group board, how do I actually go about joining it?”   “What kinds of things should I be pinning to group boards, and how often?”   “When is a good time for me to create my own group board? How many followers should I have?”  Because group boards are one of the major ways I’ve grown my Pinterest account, my email […]
