In the last year, I’ve added a few domain, technology, and business blogs to my reading list. Frequently, my favorite blogs to read are written by one person rather than a team of writers. It’s fun to get to know the blogger and learn about his or her business.
One blog I’ve been reading more and more is written by Heidi Cohen, who happens to be one of my former grad school instructors. We re-connected on Facebook, and I learned that she has a widely-read marketing blog.
Today, Heidi wrote a post with advice for wanna be bloggers. The article covers some of the reasons traffic may be light and/or why people may not be commenting or returning.
Even if you do have a blog that gets a good amount of traffic, you should check it out to see if it could be better.
Nice share and thats cool that you were taught by her.
Thanks Elliot for sharing Heidi’s blog and article. Your post came just in time as I’m planning on starting a personal blog, mainly driven by passion.
My biggest challenge is #1(my writing skills). I’m not a native English speaker. I could write much better in few other languages, but I don’t think that audience would be a lucrative one. To overcome that, I just bought some English writing books, and learning on how to write properly. Obviously, I’m not there yet, but I have to admit that i’m proud of my progress, considering I learned the language (barely lol) in 3 years now. getting a strong editor is not an option for me, it will just defeat the purpose.
I want also to thank you Elliot for the inspiration. Beside domaining tips & news, I also learned things from your blog about how to maintain and manage a successful blog.
Great post! Enjoyed her blog.
Thanks for sharing this!
It is a perfect article for me to read since I fall into the “little traffic” aspect
