best advice

Recommendations, Recommendations, Recommendations!

Recommendations from bloggers you trust cuts down on search time. The quality of advice improves. It’s like proving that you are not a robot by adding numbers across instead of vertically. If you have read the Speed of Trust, you know what I mean.

I trust Janice Wald of Mostly Blogging because I see she had done a lot of research. And I’ve talked to her. the best advice which I found from Janice’s list of experts. Chapter Three of her new book, Insider’s Guide to Building a Successful Blog lists close to 50 influencer bloggers. I reviewed twelve of them below.

  1. GoinsWriter.com Jeff Goins of the Intentional Blogging Course writes, “There are so many elements of a conference for event organizers to consider. Dates, food, speakers, content, lanyards, and the like. But there is one component that accounts for 50% of an event’s success all by itself. Location. Location. Location.” Being affiliated with a statewide social studies organization, our main concern each year is planning a conference. Great advice, Jeff! 
  2. HughsViewsAndNews.com – Hugh reminds me of my blogging friend Ralph because of his sense of humor. The comments are just as much fun as the post itself. The post I read was a door with a sign indicating that staff only could close the door, and the object of the post was to guess why.  “I (Hugh) am also a book reviewer and write articles over at Lit World Interviews which was set up by Ronovan, of Ronovanwrites. The site is the perfect place for Indie authors to share their work and to interact with others. … I’m part of a small team over there, all of whom are great writers.” Hugh responds quickly to comments and is very personable. 
  3. BoostBlogTraffic.com now Smart Blogger – Jon Morrow. He has an incredible story and has great advice for learning to write content. I read a post by a different author, Sonia Thompson. She has an infographic to embed on your website, but I don’t know what it looks like or the purpose of doing it, so I didn’t embed it yet. She included these links.  
  4. OpenTheVox.wordpress.com This blog does not have an about page. His name is Jordan Dumer. From this comment, I would guess that Vox is a publishing company. “Opened vox publishing is still in its infancy, it’s currently an independent project.”
  5. EdwinasEpisodes.comWelcome To Edwina’s Episodes: Making the mundane fun! Judy E Martin Just turned fifty, wife and mum. working in the community as an Associate Practitioner (nursing) I come from a large family (plenty of ammo there for my blog), I love music (as long as it’s 1980’s or before), and words (so much we can do with them)! … I enjoy reflecting on different situations I have found myself in, or have observed,  and writing about them. I also like writing about random silly things, or anything that I find amusing, wacky or downright ridiculous.” This blogger has personality plus.
