Today’s post is cross category, it’s both debt and clutter. I’ll explain in a moment.
I’ve been trying to figure out how to get a bit of traffic here. I’ve been posting for over a year. I fell down a bit last year when my mother passed away and did some random posting over the next few months (early 2012) and back filling where it seemed right to follow the timeline on some of my debt. The past 2 months I finally sat down and attempted to write more often.
In updating over the past 2 weeks I reviewed a few things. My weight has gone down, up and now a few more pounds down. My clutter, um my clutter has gotten worse despite feeble attempts. I keep trying and I don’t post much because I don’t feel there has been any real accomplishment. The debt portion, well that seems to be real measurable success. I’m not going to stop any distinct part of this blog because for me, they are truly tied together. It fits for me.
This is where I need to work on traffic here. I believe there is a sense of success when one is actually being read and possibly encouraged. I found this gem Monetize Your Blog, part 4: 13 Great ways to build your traffic. Most of these I already knew about only I haven’t taken advantage. Well here we go, this is my first non commercial blog/website link. Nothing in it for me folks, just sending traffic to a nicely written concise “How To” article.
It fits for me.
There are some things I have done, some I didn’t think of and others I won’t do. Because I choose to blog anonymously I am not using my “home” Facebook account to publish things. I want full disclosure on the numbers and my “dirty little secrets” here so I’d just rather they didn’t know the REAL me. I hope that makes sense. Due to this fact I can’t really advertise via Facebook. I do have a Twitter account connected to the blog and an Etsy account. I’ll just have to comment on other blogs with a link back here.
So, why is this a cross post? I’m cleaning up my blog clutter! The debt part is actually in the title of the link, “Monitize Your Blog.” It will be a long time before this blog generates any sort of money and when it does, it will either pay down the debt, pay for the website hosting or start saving for the future.
