The Mom Blogs -
Currently, I'm receiving several visits a day from you ladies and I want to say "Thank You".
But, I know there's more to this group so if anyone can give me advice on how to create a button, that would be helpful. www.BlogEngage.com
When you join you, become a part of a community of bloggers that comment and vote on the posts of others. Once your post receives 7 votes, it's placed on the Blog Engage front page for even more exposure. It's a positive supportive community and, as a result of being exposed to so many other blog niches, I've learned a good bit and I've connected with other bloggers. There are a lot of different categories so I'm sure everyone could find a suitable one. The site owner is Brian, he's personable and accessible.
On Twitter, I tweet, retweet and mention as much valuable information as my little fingers can possibly pass along
. I've learned so much from Twitter that I have a post entitled "Why Single Moms Should Tweet". If you'd like to connect I'm at www.twitter.com/@beresourceful
Before I setup my site, I learned a lot of technical information from Website Babble. A few years ago, when I tried my hand at affiliate marketing, the forum I was affiliated with wasn't personable at all. I'm guessing that's kind of the way techies are but I'm a techie and I'm not like that....Anyway, the group at Website Babble are helpful no matter how silly the question. Lisa Irby is the owner. I'm linked to this site as well.
I regularly visit, read and comment on the posts of others, often.
My site has been up for about 2 months now and I'm getting about a thousand visits a month. I know the more content I crank out, how often my site is updated and how long my site is up all play a part in traffic. So, I'm looking forward to the future.
Hope this is helpful to someone with questions regarding ways to increase traffic. If anyone has any ideas that I haven't thought of, let me know.
