Maintaining Viewership

In the previous article, Attracting Audience to your blog, we discussed ways in which we can attract viewers to our blog without spending a dime. We discussed quality over quantity, using hashtags, being social on social media, not overthinking, promoting yourself, and being what you hope to attract.  In this article, we will discuss how to maintain viewers. Admit it, promoting your blog is one long, stressful task, but let’s be real it is the easiest part. Maintaining audience engagement must be the hardest part in my opinion, it entails you keeping the audience on their toes, or keep their mouths watering which requires you to stay busy.  The google dictionary defines the word maintain as cause or enable (a condition or state of affairs) to continue which in essence means to keep someth...

Feelings, feelings, feelings

There are times when you encounter situations and your emotions over power your sense of judgement and actions.  We may be faced with a team member who acts like our boss, our boss is overbearing and loves to micromanage us, and the list can continue.  But, do we stop to think about the message not the messenger? I am of a strong belief that nothing happens without a reason, within every situation (good or bad) you can pick a lesson to learn and grow from.  Would you agree? I recently had the displeasure of dealing with an unpleasant situation, one in which I would not normally react how I did. After that encounter and speaking with my mom, I realized that if I was playing my part, maybe I wouldn’t have had that experience. I decided to shape up and do better ne...

Step out of your comfort zone

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone” It’s sad when someone gives up on their dreams and more often than not, many of us throw in the towel for good way too early. Many times we end up in situations and we begin to bicker and get miserable forgetting one important point, we are the only ones that are holding ourselves back. There are many people right now that are intimidated by you because they know your potential, they see what you can become. Instead of discovering and capitalizing on our talent, we keep it in reserve until we lose it. After conducting my research I found that one in every five respondents stated that situations change and their dream of becoming the next big thing gets placed on the top of the bookshelf. “My child comes first.” “I'm getting ...
