Go Once in a While to Others' Blogs and Know What They Are Doing in Innovative Way

April 8 Post

If you are blogger, you need to read and comment on others blogs. It is a standard advice to get back links form blogs. While it is necessary for blogging as a channel to survive that bloggers like others' blogs also. It means that blogs must have utility to readers. If they have utility to readers they must have utility to bloggers also. So bloggers have to really learn from other blogs.

Try to visit blogs of others whenever an opportunity or needs comes for learning. Also prefer a blog in Google search results.

As a blogger, try to see what other bloggers are doing in innovative ways to increase the appeal of their blog.

Comment appropriately whenever the occasion arises. One blogger advised that don't worry always about leaving the link. You name is attached to your profile. Hence if you make a comment that is interesting people do check your profile.

I am trying to visit as many A to Z blogs as possible. While the first visit may be a quick one, I am keeping a record of all blogs visited so that I can go back more leisurely in the next one year and learn many things from their blogs. I definitely learned some things in my visits this month so far and I implemented them in my blog.

Happy Blogging and Successful Blog Promotion.

Quotes Are Appreciated in Google+, FaceBook, Linkedin and Twitter Conversations

Quotes are appreciated in Twitter. Many persons circulate quotes only. And they look very interesting  at certain points in time. A blogger advised that to promote a blog post you post various quotes from it in social media sites.

Quotes are appreciated on Google+ also. You have make a big post but one sentence quote that captures the central idea of a para can do wonders for your blog post. It catches the attention of the reader in his quick scrolling of the feed.

Try to create quotes from your blog posts. You can post them in your comments first as a way of highlighting them and then post them periodically in your social media sites. They will provide bang for the buck.

You can use quotes in FaceBook posts also.

Today I created this quote for my Industrial Engineering Knowledge Revision Pages.

IE helps in creating new industries and prosperous industries.
IE makes enterprises rich. IE makes employees rich. IE makes societies rich.

So far I got two likes and a retweet on twitter and a like on FaceBook. Good initial reaction.  I also created a picture to promote my IE revision pages

Both these aids are to promote my Industrial Engineering Blog - http://nraoiekc.blogspot.com

What is your opinion?

A to Z Blogging Challenge 2016 - Reflection by NRao

This year I could select the theme quickly and create the titles of posts. Then I spent time early to make all the posts and schedule them. That gave me time to visit around 1000 blogs in the challenge. I plan to visit the remaining blogs in due course of time. A blog post has long life and hence can be visited at any time. A blogger participating in the challenge should not feel bad that others have not visited his blog during the challenge period. I request all bloggers who participated in the challenge to keep visited blogs any time they can do.  Also, we can enrich our blog posts now and we can recirculate them in communities and pages of A to Z Challenge.

God - The Concept

I feel there is God who is not visible as a very great energy or power. Also all people and animals and even trees who/which are visible to us are also God. When we pray we pray to invisible God as well as Visible manifestations of God. Together they help each of us in our life as well as in after life.

The invisible God as a great manifestation of energy and power and he is not diminished in any way by the great creation for which he is responsible. Every thing in creation is a small portion that came out of God and covered with nature created by him only. We believe the game is to go back to him. Every thing in nature is trying to go back to him but is prevented by nature. The effort is to break free of the nature. That is where asceticism comes. Acting against the normal nature. Doing fasting, being celibate and shunning all comforts which a normal persons seeks in life that is run according to the animal nature or normal nature of a living being.

Notify Your Blog Posts in Social Media

It is nobrainer for any blogger. As a part of promotion you have notify in social media platforms. Many of them allow you and are created for digital talk. We are also seeing good response to social media messages. Big personalities of various fields are present on social media and you get an occasion to reply to their messages and indicate your blog posts as having some answer to the question that they are posing. I find my tweets given as answers to the tweets of big names getting 500 views. My own tweets may not be getting big number of views. But a tweet given as a reply gets many more tweets. That same thing may be happening on other platforms.

Hence participating in long discussions on a topic of relevance to your blog post can be beneficial to your blog promotion activity. Recently a blogger wrote the same in commenting on blogs. Don't think that you have compulsively drop your blog link in every message of yours. Participate in the conversation and wait for the right opportunity to indicate your blog post. Then you get maximum benefit for your promotion effort.

Curated newsletters can be a good vehicle for notifying your latest blog posts to your email subscribers.

Asking Twitter users to please RT increases the chances of your post link getting shared. http://buff.ly/22l2UOD
