As a mom blogger who does reviews and giveaways, I have found one of the best ways to get some “new blood” on my blog is to have an event. If you have been a reader for a while, then you might remember my Back 2 School Blog Bash, my Spooktacular Soiree, my Holiday Gift Guides, or my New Year’s Resolutions Event.
My views, readers, and subscribers increased 10-fold during each event.
What type of event can you do to help out your blog?
- Giveaway Event
- Gift Guides
- How Tos
- Blog Hop
Why Do An Event?
- Links In
- More Traffic
- Long time of specific posts are loved by Google
- They are fun!
Note: blog events can be VERY time consuming. My very first one just about killed me. (I had 30 days of giveaways and over 40 companies involved!) LOL! I suggest starting with a week-long event and after getting better at it, expanding to a longer event. Also, be sure your event has to do with your blog.
Have fun and let me know how it goes! Oh, by the way, I am planning a NEW event for April. I will be expanding on the Blogging Basics Series to include your entire Home Office! As usual, I will have guest posters, reviews, and giveaways all geared towards the home office theme. Excited? Me too!
P.S. Today is my Anniversary! I have been married to my wonderful husband for 11 years!
