Weeks 4&5: Gain Momentum


Building on prior weeks – keep up what you’re doing.


Step 1:  Add an additional blog post this week – you must post 4 times a week. 


Step 2: Planning tweets ahead of time.  Using Tweetdeck or HootSuite schedule tweets about your posts, about posts you’ve read and resonated with you.  Plan 2 a day for the week.


Step 3: Attend a Twitter Party or chat.  What are the hashtags you’ve been following?  (will provide suggestions in various areas) Great way to network and find new people to follow or to follow you. 


Step 4: Create favorites. Use Twitter favorites and/or Evernote and start to build an idea journal for your blog posts.  Try writing prompts like Plinky.

Tuwanna and Shelly,

You're so very welcome! Of course I couldn't sit on something as great as that.


Through this shape up plan, and using an editorial calendar, I've challenged myself to post everyday of February. I'm at day 4, and so far, so good. I'm able to look ahead see what I need to start working on, and how much research I need to do.


This editorial calendar has been a huge help!

I like the idea of having a blog buddy! Is anyone interested in being mine? hehehe



Comment by Tomika Bryant on February 3, 2011 at 5:20pm

The Blogenergizer is great. I created a spreadsheet with my husband as I want to post everyday so that I build up my followers. I actually run two so I am hoping I can continue. You ladies inspire me:)

LaTonya, thanks for that site. Great resource. I have so much on my To Read List!! 

Jeanine, I think that's a great idea. I pitched the same idea to a friend of mine...still waiting. LOL!

I have to admit...I'm struggling with commenting on various blogs...I use Twitter, Facebook and try to visit sites as I receive emails from MBC...how does everyone else do it?  I have to adhere to the rule...three a week.   LaTonya...thanks for the site on editorial calendar...that is first on my "to do" list.
