Hello blogging community!
I am looking for some feedback from you guys.
1) How do you balance full time work with "blogging your passion"?
2) How often do you post and why that frequency?
3) How large is your following?
Looking forward to reading the answers! Thanks guys!
Great discussion. I'm a year in and what I've learned is that there's no secret formula. I began posting 3 times a week, then added a weekly newsletter, now I'm down to once per week, plus a newsletter. My strategy at first was to just build up content. Now as I'm beginning to create products, I try to create blog content that can be repurposed. And my newsletter is used to create an intimate relationship with my readers.
On recent podcast episodes, Dan has been consistently rattling of a formula to launch a side business in 15 hours a week. I believe it's 3 hours learning, 3 hours marketing, 4 hours working with clients, 5 hours creating content. This month I began sticking to this formula and it's been really helpful. As you know, it's easy as a blogger to spend all of your time creating blog content and hitting up the social media.
I get between 600-700 visitors per month and I have less than 50 email subscribers. I would love to figure out how to increase my email list because that's where my best stuff goes. You should check it out and see what I send out. http://kairosive.us12.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=e03e8d0c44ec15968...
Hope that was helpful! You'll have to let me know. :)
Thanks for replying, Holly! I appreciate your candid responses. And your success is awesome!
