Blogging is a two-way street.
Scott Chow of The Blog Starter thinks so, too. He says “Blogging at its heart is interactive.”
Every blog post is a platform where you can share ideas that your audience can discuss. It bridges like-minded people and gives birth to better ideas about the topic.
Then again, writing a blog post alone won’t do you much good. That is if you don’t promote it to blogging communities relevant to your niche.
So here’s a list of some of the best and most popular community blog sites. Use these sites to share your latest content and generate buzz to it!
If you’ve been blogging for a while, the prospect of monetizing your writing has likely crossed your mind once or twice. Fortunately, getting the ball rolling here isn’t overly complex.

If there’s one thing that counts most in your online presence, it’s your site traffic.
One of the best ways to ace it is by optimizing your blog for search engines. In fact, 82% of marketers believe that it’s the most effective way to boost one’s business.
As appealing as SEO sounds, reaching the top of search results for your target keyword is no easy feat. There are factors that you can control (on-page SEO) and those outside your jurisdiction (blog niche).

But coming up with fresh ideas on what to write about can be exhausting. Having ideas is one thing, but working on it is another!
Sometimes, well-researched and high-quality content can take half a day to finish or even more. Even if you spend the whole week creating one, there is no guarantee that you’ll get the desired results.
Fortunately, you don’t always have to create new content – repurposing them can do a long way.
Repurposing content means you can take any existing blog post that you have and then reuse it again.
Sounds simple, right?
Not necessarily. Execution can be the trickier part.
But it’s still a great help when you’re having difficulty with new ideas as of the moment.
In this post, we’ll share with you five ways on how you can repurpose your blog posts to bring in more traffic to your site.

While that’s normal, you want to make sure that it isn’t the normal way of things. It’s essential that your time is balanced between your blog and your family. That way, you still get to spend time with the people you love the most while you do the work you love and publish it for your readers. [Read more…]
