David Risley will be doing a Live FREE public webinar
on 25th January 2010, at 8PM EST
I would highly recommend that you attend.
You can really learn a lot from this guy.
In today’s review, I will be looking at an exciting coaching program known as the Blog Masters Club, by ProBlogger David Risley.
David has been one of my blogging mentors and coach for a while now.
And am proud to have been part of his first group of students on his coaching club.
For the past 6 months, this cool guy from across the pond has been working hard on his Blog Masters Club project which he is about to re-open very soon for a limited time.
I would like to share with you three quick ways to get more eyeballs on your blog this weekend.
 Share your expertise
Run a quick Q&A session on Twitter and help someone who has a question.
You can do this by finding tweeted questions related to your market.
You’ll be surprised how much people would appreciate a helping hand.
So go ahead, jump on Twitter and search for typical questions such as :
- How do I…
- How can I… in wordpress
 Email your list
- Give them a quick update of you’ve been up to
- Find out how they are doing?
Also, Keep them informed of any latest news on your blog.
 Do a quick video post.
This doesn’t have to be anything fancy.
Just a quick hello along with quick tips.
Videos are very powerful, and bring you closer to your audience.
What are your 3 tips for this weekend?
Is your blog’s performance beginning to dip?
Does it takes ages to do the simplest of tasks?
Chances are, your blog needs a health check.
With a growing blog, comes the responsibility to meet its needs and demands.
Blogging platforms are great, however, they also tend to use up a lot of resources as they grow – it’s just their nature.
So therefore, to keep the ship steady, regular maintenance is essential.
On this blog, I’ve had a few blackout moments, when everything grinds to a halt, nothing seems to work, and in most cases, I’ve had my hosting company to thank, for placing me on a dodgy server (145) hmmm.
It’s still an on-going process in my quest for better performance.
Why is My Blog Running Slow?
There could be many reasons for this :
- Traffic Levels.
- Growth/size of your blog.
- The size of your images.
- Badly written codes.
- Too many components.
What is Slowing Down my Blog?
Well, the answer to this is relative. It really depends on your setup.
That said, there are tools that can help you identify some problem areas.
Pingdom is free service that provides information of how long your web page takes to load, and also breaks down what actions are being performed and the time taken.
This detailed stats would give you some indication of areas that may need attention.
It’s the new year, a new campaign, a new challenge.
For some strange reason, it’s a time when everyone makes resolutions and sets new goals.
It’s also a time when most of us are charged up and motivated by the challenge ahead.
As we embark on this blogging journey with excitement, It is important to keep our feet on the ground and start off with a plan.
Plan the Journey
Don’t just dive head first, instead, take a moment to iron out where you’re heading – Have a strategy.
However long this may take, at the end you’ll find it to be a good investment.
So for a moment, stop blogging, get off Twitter, turn off emails – disconnect your internet connection if you have to.
Sit down and write down your goals for the year.
