Blog Promoting and Niche’s
I’ve learned from a lot of great bloggers like Tony Steward, Tony Morgan, Craig Groeschel, Scott Williams, Perry Noble, Tim Stevens, and Buckhead Church to name a few. I’ve learned about leadership, promoting your blog, list posts, what to tweet about, what you should or shouldn’t do online and with social networking, about churches, ministries, serving, being a pastor or part of a leadership team, and so much more. I look up to these and many other bloggers, I enjoy learning and continue to learn from them.
The things they blog about are not necessarily in my “niche” but they are things that interest me and help me grow and provide new ideas and insights.
Niche – a place, employment, status, or activity for which a person or thing is best fitted.
Today we were supposed to read and analyze blogs within our “niche.” Just seeing how they do things and getting ideas to help us. My niche is very broad, I’m not focused on something specific like a church, ministry, or leadership, … it’s a variety of things ranging from teaching or leadership, something specific, to an every day blog saying what’s going on in my life or what I’m learning. Instead of having several blogs I have it all combined in one.
Promoting your blog from yesterday, I learned again about ways you can promote and let others know that a new post is up or just that you have a blog in general. You can tweet or put it on your Facebook status, commenting on other people’s blogs or websites using your blog address, you can put your blog address on your Twitter and Facebook profile, add it to your contact information on business cards, and more. There are a lot of ways to spread the word and let other people know. Over promoting however is not suggested, I feel bad if I tweet more than once in the same day about the same blog post.
Promote your blog, help promote other blogs that you enjoy by retweeting it or adding them to your blogroll, and find your niche.
