So I've been writing blogs for a few months now, and even though I get a few views a day (and over 10, nearly 20, a day I post a new blog) I want to take it to the next level.
As you can see I have a link to the site on my signature (by clicking on the picture) and every time I post a new blog I advertise it through Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. I wrote a blog on self help for those with anxiety and stress and asked a mental health charity site to post my blog on their site and maybe a privalege to have my own blog page on their site. They haven't replied.
Does anyone know where else I can advertise my blogs?
Go into the life issue forums and stuff. Post. Interact with people. Can do this on a number of sites.
Could easily mention your log in posts. Or give a tip or two about say anxiety and then link them to a post on your blog.
In time and if you keep this up, why not check out local groups and see if they'd be interested in linking to your blog? Put up flyers on campus or whatnot. It depends on where you want to take this.
If your blog takes off, then I'd contact those groups again and in the letter mention how much traffic you have.
Now your sig, redo it! From it, I have no idea what this blog is about. Nothing about the title says self help. It looks like some site where a young lady is putting her thoughts out there.
You also said "blogs." Is there more than one? "The wonderful world of Jade's thoughts" is nice for a personal one, so maybe you can split it up? That being your personal one, and another for this self help and such stuff. Just like a producer may have a personal facebook page and one for fans.
You're too passive about it. You can't just hope people will click a link in your signature, you need to actively go and tell people about your site.
And how would one do that?
Didn't I just say? Go and tell people about your site.
Go to places online related to your blog's content and post/pm something to contribute to the OP and then say something like "If you enjoy these kind of things, you should check out my blog which covers these topics, blah blah, etc."
This is called making your own opportunities as opposed to waiting for opportunity to come to you.
Well this thread will get your blog a few views.
Your sig needs to mention mental health.
If you're writing about mental health then become a life issues forum regular. People who value your advice will become interested and look at your blog.
Just because one website didn't accept you that doesn't mean others won't.
Start with smaller websites and when you're getting lots of traffic move onto the bigger ones.
