Blog Tip #4 Social Secrets

Today I will be sharing one of the fundamentals of marketing your posts. Applying these techniques will:

  1. Increase Traffic
  2. Popularize Your Brand
  3. Expose You Too New Audiences

The magic phrase today is… SOCIAL MEDIA!

The power of the internet is astronomical, and the fact that we have the ability to access the world in an instant at our fingertips is incredible. To use this power in the most productive way possible, we must put in the time to find the best sites for sharing our wonderful pieces of art we call posts. I have done the research and have a list of the sites you should focus on for whatever purposes you need.

This will be a new subcategory that I will be writing as part of the Tuesday Blog Tip. I will call it Social Secrets and it will feature a different website every time. Today’s lucky winner is a tool which every self-respecting blogger should know about.

StumbleUpon

This site is great for increasing your viewership, as well as boosting your stats in general. StumbleUpon is a webpage viewer which helps you “stumble upon” different websites you that have been shared by other “Stumblers” on the site. Every person that stumbles upon your page will see your post which will open up a whole new part of the internet up to you. It’s quick and easy to make an account, and it costs nothing to do so.

Blog Tip #3 Personal Consistency

“Don’t be discouraged by the stumbling blocks in life, they are there to climb on not just to trip over.”

                                                                                                     -Me?

Consistency + Hard Work

The way we grow is through work, this is a basic concept we all understand as human beings. Just look at the people who have ‘made it’ in your eyes and you will see that they have worked for what they have or don’t have, no matter if we decide to accept it or not. Today’s tip is very reliant on the fact that we understand this concept or not, and if we do, can we apply it to our lives?

 

Become Consistent

One of the easiest parts of becoming consistent is that all you gotta do is right there in the title… be consistent. If you are having trouble writing your posts, or keep pushing it off until its never late enough, then creating a schedule will be your true best friend. A schedule will keep your consistency until you feel a little empty inside without completing your writing for that day/week/month.

If you ever feel like you might give up on your hard earned consistency, just remember how inspired you were the first time you made that decision to write every week, and never give it up.

 

Benefits

The primary reason to be consistent is to grow your audience and to prove to the internet that you aren’t going away. When I started I made a commitment to write every day, and I kept it for 3 full months, that is probably how I grew faster than most bloggers, but I joined a post-highschool oversees program in Israel so I had to lower my writing expectations to two posts a week. I guarantee you will see results within a month if you keep your schedule, depending on what that particular schedule is. Keep doing what you do, and then do it some more…

Blog Tip #2 Future Planning

Tuesday Tip

There are two types of bloggers in this world.

• Inspiration Dependent

• informational Focused

I personally rely on inspiration when I sit down to write a post, or something else that requires creative writing. Although, when I am writing an educational article, I will research then parrot most of the informative aspects of what I am writing about; spicing it up when there is a need for the special touch of a personal emotional view.


Today I have not just one, but two tips/tricks for my fellow bloggers out there.

1: for the ones which rely on inspiration for a post, but have trouble keeping a schedule because of this. I propose writing down small bullet points as you get inspired by your daily life. This way you will not only have something for your brain to build off of, but you won’t have to re-invent the wheel each time you write. (Which I am guilty of)

2: Then, for the people who are forced squeeze your personality into the crevices of cold facts. There is only one thing I have to say, look for aspects of the subject you are writing about which interest you; then use those personally feelings toward those facts and write something fantastical.

Enjoy your week everybody!

Let me know what advice you are looking for and maybe the next Tuesday Tip will feature your request!

Blog Tip #1 Be Responsive

Tuesday Tip

This is the first Tuesday Tip so please let me know if you guys enjoyed it and what I can do to add or subtract from it 🙂

What do you think a performers favorite part of being an artist is?

Their fans and the response they get from them about their art. For bloggers, comments and likes dominate our dopamine levels. When you get that buzz in your pocket, we always want it to be some sort of loving feedback from a devout reader.

They give us so much, and are a big part of the reason why we feel accomplished on a day to day basis. We have to show our compassion to them in a tentative way, by responding to comments and follows, we show our appreciation in the best way possible.

So that is the tip of the week, be responsive and loving to the people who helped you get this far…

Reminder of Our Purpose

Monday Mince

flower-2373000_960_720

“Just one thorn can cut, imagine what a plant working with itself can accomplish.”

                                                                                        -Me?

 

Anybody who has ever felt like they were fighting an unbeatable battle, where the enemy knew more about you then you did, where at every turn you were out-smarted and ruined, then you might be at war with yourself. Each and every living thing has different parts that work in unison, but can just as easily destroy each other. If our brain does not give our body the reports of what it is thinking and feeling then our internal organs will cease to be of use. In turn, what if our body decided that it has had enough of following orders? Then our brain will loose all purpose. It is a simple equation of either loving oneself enough to help ourselves, or to be so consumed by hatred that we will ignore the fact that we are the ones tearing down our own future.

flowers-181223_960_720

Purpose

When we search for meaning, we only want what we think we already know. Acceptance is the step to everything, and accepting the fact that we all need purpose, whether it is self given or not, is extremely important. For us to look at life, at every living thing, and find its purpose, then the power of sadness can never touch our soul ever again. Depression is the epitome of the lack of purpose, if we have purpose we have happiness.

 

Usefulness

There are points in our lives that we can help, and even do a great deal in the service of someone else’s lives, in a positive way. This may not be our purpose, but just as the body is one of the most essential parts of the body, it is still useful to the brain, it can have the ability to give purpose and still forfeit its own importance for a bit at a time.

 

A point in our lives might give us a prickle here or there, but in the end the point is what we were seeking the whole time.

Music that Brings us Together

Thursday Throwback (actually)

 

“The hero saves the day, but what of the war?”

                                                              -Me?

 

I happen to love the word Symphony, there is something about it that opens my mind to the many complexities of the world. I could safely say it is one of my favorite words; actually I wrote a post about it back when I first started. Take a look-

A Wonderful Symphony of Emotions

I certainly have improved my writing since then, that’s for sure. There was a great deal of intensity in that post, at the time I thought it needed to be said, so here it is.

 

Today, I would like to talk about a new form of symphony, something which defies our understanding of unity. This concept is not the classic music, or partnership post which you will probably find, (even though I love those.) As you know I love diving into the reasoning behind the basic attributes of human life, so, what can we thank for unity being an integral part of accomplishment and overall positivity?

 

First we must go through the establishments that work off this concept.

  • Marriage

  • Partnerships (Corporate, Health, or any goal oriented team)

  • Music

heart-1721592_960_720

Marriage

The love we feel, the need we have to satisfy, and the passion we use to attain it. This is the ultimate use of our aforementioned topic. A symphony of emotion which places itself in-between two different people, somehow bringing them closer. This is the only type of unity which must separate, just to unite in the end.

partnership-526413_960_720

Partnerships

Have you worked in an office which has not used this concept to bring better results? For example, we may be good at our jobs, an incredible bodybuilder, or even the slickest crime lord, but even someone who specializes in crime has a “partner in crime.” This is the symphony of accepting our own faults, and then doing something about them.

sheet-music-277277_960_720

Music

We all love it, use it, and create it. The sounds of the world have evolved so much since the day they were created, and we have used them to uplift our spirits and motivate our souls. This is the symphony of creation, and what we can do if we would put our knowledge together to help the poor and assist the stubborn. The bond between each of us will accomplish more then the lonely one man band, and the groups which creates the magic we listen to prove this to us every day.

 I have put Unity together in this format to show everyone that our love, commitment, and willingness to succeed has created this concept. We are the symphony, the instruments and all we see around us…

To Tether or not to Tether

That is the question…

Thorough Thursday

 

What is the first thing that pops into your head when you hear the word Tether?

 

Is it the rope we use for mountain climbing?

 

Or is it the connection we feel when the trust of another affects our very existence?

 

This connection has been the power behind the affects most relationships have, and the beauty which friends give each other. Every time strength is passed from one to another, this concept is brought to light with all its glory, and the darkness which can be tapped into if chosen.

 

The power of helping someone that means something to you is the ultimate kindness you can bestow onto another person.

There are two types of hooks in this world. 

There are the ones that hold you in place. 
There are the ones that Help you climb higher.
Then there are the ones which will slip and only help your downfall.
Tether onto the hooks that will only bring you up, and at the times when you just need to mellow out and take a look at life; be with the people in your life which are just there because of the relationship you have with them.

Only you can decide the next step in which you need/want to go. Only you can let the hooks guide you in the only direction…

Pluck A Time and a Place

To be omnipresent is to be without decision
 

 One of the most productive skills to wield in a world of distraction is none other then definitive decision making. 

 Being able to clearly decide what you will be commuting to or attempting to accomplish next is always the first step to a healthy action. Loving the way we do the things we love is part of the reason we love them in the first place. 

 Pluck your life from the millions of possibilities that could be, and you will find the one you love ❤️ right there in front of you…

Behind the Scenes of the Mind

Tremendous Tuesday


 Today, I have brought all of us a special gift. This gift will be unlike anything we could have prepared for, let alone seen coming.

 This is the gift of Reasoning
.

 You are part of the select few who have gotten backstage, behind the scenes, passes to none other but our minds. The most unpredictable, confusing, and seemingly random entity to exist in our known universe.

 What happens behind the scenes every time we make a decision which can affect our whole day, if not our whole lives?


 Isn’t it beautiful that we have the freedom and ability to question and understand ourselves, to a point which we can actually discuss the concepts which our psyche relies on?



 It is btw…👌🏻

 
 That ability gives us almost a superhuman understanding which we can use for the good of the ones around us, or the destruction everybody else. The responsibilty is with every decision we make, and the affects of these decisions will depend heavily on the motivation of the action. To judge one on action alone is a to judge a man at trial without letting him utter a word. 

 Our words are our communication, but our mind will ultimately decide what we say and how we say it. 

 Unlock your true potential by simply looking within your own motives.

Keeping Monetary Momentum 

Monday Misconception 

 

 Brooding our horizons, or keeping our focus on the next step ahead. 


 To be successful at something will always feel great, even so great that he accomplishment will feel complete and the euphoria will dissipate. Sometimes this will result in a search for something else to give us that feeling of contentness. 

 To be productive for the feelings it gives you will always end up in diverse and confusing results. We must feel great about our accomplishments and use those feelings to create more accomplishment, but to never have a realistic end goal will end up with a lack of continuation. 


 When we see a friend trying to finish a project, but they keep getting sidetracked by the continuing bombardment of possible positivity, which they should be getting from their own goals. 

 We can try to make them realize their self destructive behavior, but distraction is often disguised as good intentions. 

 Keeping our focus on what will ultimately let us leave regret In the past is the only way to true happiness.
