    Okay so I just reinstated my blogger account at the advice of a fellow hubber and I am thinking, Now What?

    I could really use some advice from some of you pros regarding how to promote it, put a link in my profile page here on my HP, and so on so forth. If you have extensive information drop me an email or if you can recommend a hub I'd appreciate it so much!!!!

    Thanks so much in advance!

      I'm on the same path ... smile

      My advice ... if you can find places that link to material similar to yours, get links from them.

      Xomba is good for almost anything. Digg is also good. Just make sure that your linking from a site that links to material similar to yours.

      Expect it to take a couple of months to get some meaningful hits as you're new to all of this and it will take some time to find your way. Also, it's best that your personal blog not be personal if you want it to reach a large audience.

      By that I mean, people read blogs to escape their regular lives. If you offer your life in return, they might see themselves and run away. Instead, offer them something new and interesting they might not get elsewhere. For example, mine revolves around scientific discoveries and speculating the future (which is my own unique twist). So, pick a topic and roll with it.

      I'll warn you in advance ... If you're looking to reach an audience with a blog it's a lot of work. But once you grab an audience - their yours - you only need to keep rolling in the same direction.

      Blogs are all about inertia. Once you get the wheels rolling you don't need to stomp on the gas anymore to keep them in motion ... you only need to apply some throttle every now and then to keep people arriving at your door.

      I hope this helps. smile

    Don't forget to add social submitter plugin, Onlywire on your blogger blog. That way you'll be able to submit blog post to multiple social networks.

      A good idea, but be cautious with this ... If you submit a blog that's off-topic to one of these services you could lose your ride...

      For instance, if you submit a topic about making money to Digg they won't like it very much. Also, by submitting an off-topic blog you are telling the users of these services that you haven't taken the time to identify what they are looking for and they might start singing the Monty Python spam song.

      The rule of thumb to all good advertising ... always advertise to the right audience, because selling to the wrong crowd could get ya lynched. smile

    Yes, that is very good point. Not just digg, but reddit and newvine will flag the account in short time. Also Hubpages is banned from AOL services so there is no social traffic from propeller like services.

      Hmmm, once again I bit off more than I can chew but I really appreciate both of you giving me advice!

        Easy and worthwhile never coexist well in the same sentence.

        As for biting off more than you can chew ... People who just nibble never get a taste for what they are eating and never finish in time to get to the main course.

        Blogging is easy ... provided you want to just write about how your cats ate your favorite plant and puked on your new sofa (yuk!), but profiting from your blogging takes a bit of a learning curve which can pay really good dividends in the end, provided you are willing to learn from others.

        Just keep asking questions ... apply what you learn ... and tell yourself about year from now you will be sitting on top of a growing money tree. smile
