What’s in Blog and Retire Week 23?
As usual, Blog and Retire Week 23 gives lots of tips, and the daily to-do list for your blogging. It is step-by-step every single day, 6 days a week, and there are only about 1 hour of tasks per day, so it makes blogging and promoting your blog very manageable.
Week 23 goes in depth about CloudFlood and gives some extra tips not covered in this post. If you want to learn about how to use CloudFlood to your advantage to get more traffic to your blog or website, click here to read the post, or sign up for week one of the Blog and Retire ecourse at the bottom of this post. After week 1, you can subscribe to the full ecourse, and then you will get all the blogging tips and tricks in depth, and in step-by-step format, that is found no where else.
What I Did This Week
The house blog is holding a DIY contest with other bloggers who wish to join. Everyone who participates has to mention my blog with link along with the 4 other co-hosts I’m doing this event with. The DIY/home/family niche is super awesome. Everyone is really supportive of each other and everyone knows that by working together, you can accomplish more. Which leaves much to be desired of the make money blogging niche… cough, cough.
With TweetAdder, I don’t have to do too much Twitter stuff. Just respond to people who talk to me on there. All my following, unfollowing, followback, regular tweeting, new blog post tweets, etc is all done automatically. It’s awesome and as I’ve mentioned before, it saves me tons of time. I don’t know what I would do without TweetAdder. If you don’t have it already, you should get it.
I comment a lot on other blogs, and I write between 4-6 blog posts a week.
I got my first paying advertiser at the house blog this past week, so that was nice. However, it came at a time when I was just about to increase my prices (due to my increase in unique visits and pagviews, which has been constantly increasing since the birth of the case study blog). But since it is my first paying advertiser, I am still happy.
I am also setting up a sponsor swap again with other bloggers, and some of my old sponsor swappers have opted out, but new ones have taken their place. So this time I will have 11 instead of 14, which is good since that will make advertisers feel that there is more room for them.
Case Study Blog Stats
This is a fun post because we get to see the stats for the entire month of April and compare them to previous months. I did not get as many pageviews, etc as I had originally expected, but I still got more than last month, and it’s all still growing, so I am happy. I may need to be more proactive about getting more traffic in May. I’ve been slacking off a bit too mcuh (or really I’ve just been spending more of my time elsewhere). I need to focus more on building the house blog, since it is one of my more long term investments that I plan to continue for a very long time (or forever).
Here is my stats chart comparing January-April:
