Now that you know where you are and where you want to be it’s time to create your action plan.
Step One: Editorial Calendar. In order to build your writing muscles you need to have a plan for steady writing. Commit to posting at least three times a week for the next 11 weeks. By thinking ahead you won’t get stuck without something to write. Make an appointment to write just like any meeting and put it in your calendar.
Step Two: Set up a Google Reader or other amalgamation site where you will organize all of your blog subscriptions. This will help you keep track of blogs easily, help spur ideas for yourself and keep you abreast of the latest memes.
You will comment on at least three other blogs every week. By reaching out and building a conversation on other blogs you create engagement. Already doing this? Branch out beyond the mommyblog world.
Step Three: Retweet posts and links with commentary this week, at three times a day. Pick tweets that are relevant, no giveaways or contests.You can plan ahead and schedule these tweets using tweetdeck or HootSuite.
