Sometimes we get writer’s block and just need a nudge to think about what to write. Tools like this are wonderful. I’ve printed it out to refer to when I get stuck – and to remind me to stay on target with audience needs.
Getting your website found in the search engines is one challenge.
Encouraging them to stay for longer than a few seconds is the second challenge.
The next challenge is how to get them to come back!
I meet lots of people in my development work. 99% of those people join my workshops because they are not making progress; they’re not where they want to be, doing what they want to be doing. 100% of them have a reason why. And they’re all excuses. You’re either getting results or you’re giving reasons. Which are you? Become someone who makes progress. Get into this June Challenge – have a look here – or go to Stretch Yourself Challenge Workshop. (aff link)
Love it when you search for something and come up with something else equally as useful and these are great!
I fell upon Mandi’s site and noticed she had some tools for bloggers so I thought I’d share the love.
That was me last week. Again. Admittedly it was a few years since one of my sites was last hacked. This time it was two.
It’s no fun.
Even less fun is the support you may not get from your host. Mine was no help. Needless to say I had already done what I could to remove the malicious code. Still, the care factor was marginally above zero.
What is a blog challenge?
That’s where a group of people commit to writing a blog post each day, usually for a fixed period such as 30 days, and publishing it to their blog.
When someone visits your website and leaves, it’s a good chance that they won’t come back. Why would they if there is no compelling reason to do so? You know we all act impulsively on the web – so much so that we can quickly forget what web pages we were on a few minutes ago!
I know it’s something I don’t pay enough attention to – my numbers.
I have SlimStat set up on my blog and occasionally tap into it to see whether my blog is trending up and what posts are more effective.
