Yeah, I know, that’s not quite fair. lol After my post about LinkedIn being like Facebook what else could one expect? 🙂

Truthfully, even though it’s rare that I do it these days, it not only can’t hurt to do some marketing, networking or outreach on LinkedIn if you’re a sole proprietor, consultant or looking to upgrade your position but it’s almost imperative to do so. No matter how much I might think it’s failing as a social media platform, truth be told there’s no other site I know of that’s still more geared towards people and business than it is.

Anatomy Of A Blog Post & How I Break The Rules

I’ve been blogging for a very long time, and I’ve read thousands of blog posts, probably tens of thousands, over the years. Because of that, I know all the rules that we bloggers are supposed to follow so that our blogs will be successful.

Rules

Me being me though, I tend not to always follow the rules. Sure, there are some things I do that are considered standard writing, but I tend to deviate from a lot of the rules as they pertain to blogging because I am an individual. I figure these are my blogs, and I’m going to do things my way while working hard to make sure I get my point across.

Using Your Own Images And Niche Imaging

When I wrote my post in March talking about 31 mistakes people make in blogging and social media, one of my points about blogging was that a lot of people still aren’t using images on their posts. I don’t fully understand the science of it all, but for some reason not only will more people read your posts but they’re more inclined to share them on other social media sites.

It’s something I wish I’d started earlier than 2011, but them’s the breaks. I mentioned that in another post I did in July, along with saying that I should have been using my own images more often. One of the comments that post received was that images should fit the content for maximum effect.

Why I’m Writing At Least 12 Posts For This Blog This Month

Not counting last week, I’ve been putting a lot of time into increasing the mobile speed for all my blogs and websites. Even though I kept up with my once a week post for this blog and my business blog, overall my writing output has suffered. Hey, I can’t do it all right?

I was going to add “or can I“, but that response would be utopian and I don’t believe in utopia in any way, shape or form. What I do believe is that I can do and show more, not only on this blog but across the board. Below I’m going to give you 4 reasons why I’m going to write at least 12 posts for I’m Just Sharing this month and, hopefully, a bit more content for my other sites as well.

The Quest For Mobile Speed, Part Three

Whew, I’m tired! This will be the last installment of the quest for mobile speed, even if later on I may write about something new I’ve discovered. It’s finally time to end this journey, which has taken on a life of it’s own. The previous quest for speed post was pretty epic; I expect this one to be much shorter… then again, what do I know? lol

This time around I’m adding two of my business websites along with talking about the blogs. I still have one website I haven’t addressed, mainly because I still haven’t figured out what I want to do with it. This still means I have 7 web properties to talk about. First, take a look at the numbers from the previous post because I’ve improved on all of them:
