Your Interests and Blogging
Do you have a business or a passion you want to share with millions on the internet? You need a blog. I used to have a static website for years but now I have a blog. You can do more things with it and it’s more interactive with visitors. Pretty much everything I learned on my own, how to set it up, how to use widgets and plugins, etc. I’ve also had some really good help with it as well. My friend in the UK, Gavin Mountford helped me transfer my static website into my current blog.
Would you like to have a blog? Or do you already have one but find it challenging to create and keep it current? I happened to find this website A+ List Blogging and it’s a great place to learn all about blogging, how to do it, ideas on how to use it, how to write your content. I am not an affiliate, but I am a member.
Interesting tidbit of information which I just stumbled on was this – there are over 345 million websites globally yet only 7 million are active! Whoa! I did an Alexa search on mine and it’s now listed in the high end of 1 million! I was amazed to read how few websites are active. Like many things in life we get interested in creating a website or blog but are challenged by keeping up with it.
Like I’ve mentioned before, my love is teaching childbirth education, but I also want to get my message out to the world as well as attract clients. So, I have to keep up with the business end of things as well. Learning about internet marketing, social media, etc. It’s all overwhelming, I know, but so important to do if you want people, the world, to know about you.
If you are a childbirth educator and have a blog, all the more reason to learn about increasing your presence on line. 🙂 Actually, I think childbirth educators and Doulas, even midwives need to increase their presence on the internet in a HUGE way to capture the attention of moms-to-be to ensure they get the right information in preparing for the birth of their baby.
Stay tuned, I’ll be writing more about this.
