You’ve made it your goal to start your own blog- perhaps you’ve written a few blog posts here and there. After drafting your first few blog posts here and hitting “post”…..nothing happens. There is little traffic, 0 engagement, and your blog is starting to look more like a desert landscape as each day passes. The truth is, you are not the only one putting content out on the web. According to WordPress’ stats, it’s users are producing around 79.7 million new posts each month. That’s just WordPress– aside from Tumblr, Wix, Blogger, and countless others. At this point, you’re just another voice in the crowd, so how do you break free from the noise and boost your blog?
At our July 2018 Meetup, the Orlando Bloggers invited a panel of four bloggers to show the Orlando Blogger Union how to boost their blog. Our panel of bloggers included Kelly, Diana Griffith, Bianca Dottin, and Nikki A. Hall. Our panel shared their top tips on getting a blog off of the ground, taking it to the next level, as well as answering in-depth questions about sponsorships and brand partnerships.
Kelly is a writer, editor, and photographer behind Twentysomething Vision– a website and lifestyle blog.
Diana Griffith is a content writer and coach for smart women, covering topics such as career advice, feminism and inspiring stories.
Bianca Dottin is a Momma blogger inspiring moms to create a life they love. Bianca blogs about style, mamahood, and travel.
Nikki A. Hall is an Orlando Influencer who blogs about fashion, finance, travel, and beauty.
Our July Meetup was at The Snowbean Café on E. Colonial Drive in Orlando. The Snowbean Café is a dessert & coffee cafe, serving coffee beans locally sourced from Roasters located in Orlando Florida. Serving a modern twist on a traditional Pat-bing–soo– a Korean shaved Ice. Check out Snowbean café for your next meetup, kid’s playdate, or Saturday afternoon.
A special thank you to the owners of Izziban (also owners of Snowbean Cafe) for their accommodating hospitality and support!
