Day 30 #31DBBB: 17 Statistics To Monitor On Your Blog

2010-08-18T10:35:38-04:00

1) Did you track your statistics this month? What did you see? I was using a chart from the forums and I have been filling it out every week and posting on that thread about tracking your stats. It has been VERY helpful to see what people come to look at and how long they stay. 2) Which statistics do you feel tell you the most about your blog or readers? The number of repeaters.

2019-03-27T06:06:32-04:00

1.) How does the way you build your blog's profile change after reading this task? Well I think for me I need to schedule when I am going to do it and make a list of things to write about. Then I actually have to do it which is the challenge for me. 2.) Give us an example from your strategy! For one site: how much time will you spend there? What are you going to do? When's the site [...]

If you've used a dead link finder on your blog before, what were the results? What tool did you use to do this? Did you find it useful?

I took some special Art classes and we got a behind the scenes tour as well it just stayed with me after all these years.

Yes but I did not end up posting because it was something I really did not agree with and I didn't want to be mean. I think I will post a question today [...]

Day 24 #31DBBB: How to Use a Magazine to Improve Your Blog

2010-08-12T08:28:30-04:00

Did this exercise inspire you to try anything new with your own blog? I went thru a travel agent magazine and looked at articles, they layout, colors used in ads, pics, frames and articles. I love reading this magazine and I get some really good ideas and tips about cruising and selling cruises from it. It doesn't focus on just Disney but they do have info about Disney from time to time. I think that best practices about selling, organizing [...]

Day 21 #31DBBB- Breathe Life into an Old Post

By reviewing my old posts, this exercise helped me figure out where I need to improve as a blogger. When reviewing your old posts, did a majority of the posts fall into any of the 7 categories above? I don't have that many old posts to go over but I did print out this section from the book because I do feel like it will be helpful to me in the future. The 7 Categories are: Crafting your post title [...]

2010-08-10T06:58:23-04:00

Do you normally spend at least 15 minutes a day commenting on other blogs? Why or why not? I do leave comments sometimes but not as much as I probably should. What are some reasons you DON'T comment on an entry you otherwise would have? (For example, a registration process deters me from commenting.) Sometimes blogs want to much info and I don't want to fill it all out. Sometimes I do not have time and sometimes I will enter [...]

So this is what a sneeze page is: A sneeze page is a concept ProBlogger came up with as a strategy to direct readers deeper into a blog by highlighting previously written posts. You can create a sneeze page with posts revolving around a single theme or a period of time. By promoting it prominently on your homepage, you can develop another opportunity for people to link within your site. I have never done this before and had never even [...]

Well I had someone go thru it and liked the colors and way it looked and the pics that had been posted. Question 2: What useful observations and/or feedback did they offer? Needs a sidebar, needs more posts about Disney and news, and they also thought that the top or header should be different. These are all things I [...]
