3 EASY WAYS TO ENSURE TRAFFIC CONTINUALLY FLOWS THROUGH YOUR SITE

Elle shared some great advice for all of us in the world of blogging. Thanks so much! 😀

Finding Myself Through Writing

You want traffic flowing through your site don’t you? In and out, back and forth, all day and all night? Even if you say you are writing for writing’s sake,  you write to let off steam, to put your thoughts on paper, or to inform others of some subject dear to you and it’s very flattering and great for your ego when the traffic is flowing continually through your site.

So what do you do to ensure this? My thoughts on this subject may not be yours, but it works for me.

  • WRITE GOOD CONTENT – Do your research on the subject beforehand. After you write that good content, edit it! Make sure all your T’s are crossed and your I’s are dotted. Misspelled words are unforgivable in this day and age. Spell check is a finger-tap away – USE IT! Nothing irks me more than to wonder what was meant by a phrase when grammar is…

Stream of Consciousness — Writing 101

Along with starting Camp Nanowrimo on April 1st (an intensive 30 day novel writing adventure), I also started a writing class, Writing 101, here at WordPress. Methinks I’ve bitten off more than I can chew, or should that be write? Nevertheless, I press on in hopes of reaching the finish line with more knowledge than I had at the beginning of these adventures. If nothing else comes of it, I will have made some new friends because I am a friendly, caring, and somewhat happy person despite the chaos in my life. I don’t like chaos. As a matter of fact I downright hate it! It gives me headaches, heart palpitations, sweaty palms, and a general feeling of fear. Fear of failure, fear of disapproval, fear of disappointing those who expect much of me. I also hate letting people down. I’ve let a lot of people down in my life, and that disturbs me. It frustrates me and makes me sad. I hate having left things undone or unsaid. Especially things unsaid. That has happened more times than I care to remember. It happened when Tanya died. We’d been estranged for years, probably over something totally juvenile and stupid, but I can’t right the wrong or work things out with her now. A man I love I let slip through my fingers because I wasn’t brave enough to say, “look at me, don’t you know I love you, and don’t want to live my life without you?” Good thing is, we’re still friends, and I know I can call on him if I need him, and he would come running to help me. Or at least I’d like to think that. But maybe it’s all an illusion….maybe I’m just hoping against hope. Maybe I’m too hard on myself and expect too much of myself thinking that’s what others expect of me. Maybe I should say to heck with what everyone else thinks of me and expects of me and just do what I feel is right. But I can’t do that….
