How am I doing at this blogging thing?
I’ve been at this blogging thing for two years now, but only seriously for the last nine months or so. I love the writing process, but some of the finer points of blogging frustrate me. I’ve watched tutorials, read up on the “how to’s,” set goals, and done my best at this.
But I wondered… How can I be doing better?
Sarah at Develop Your Influence did a blog review for me the other day. I thought I was doing a good job with my blog, but knew I wasn’t using the technical things to their fullest potential.
SEO? Plug-ins? Google Analytics? I’m pretty clueless and know this is a problem.
Sarah reviewed every aspect of my blog — design, content, social media, and the basics like domain authority and page load speed.
She sent a detailed report which provided me with a wealth of information, things I never even knew I should know about. We also had a Skype session to review my blog in more detail. She did a screen share to show me other blogs I might want to use as models and explained everything I needed to do to improve my blog.
She even doubled my Google Page speed (from 13/10, which is an “F”, to 91/100, which is now an “A”). Wow!
She left me with plenty of homework. Not the best timing with my book about to be launched, but I’ll be chipping away at it!
I completely trust Sarah’s professional opinion. After teaching for 12 years, she married and had two sons (plus she recently adopted a little girl from China). She built two successful blogs, one family resource blog and one on blogging training, and works to help women find ways to make their lives easier and more engaging. She’s spent the last two years researching and buying reports and trainings on how to have a successful online business. At Develop Your Influence, she’s able to share all of her knowledge and experience with you!
More than her resume, she is perhaps the one person that has the most influence on our family’s lives in countless ways. Want to learn more about that? Check out the post I did about her back in April of 2012.
