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.

LOVING week 2! I've been trying to organize myself & my blogging this year so far and found an AWESOME Wordpress Plugin that shows your drafted posts in calendar form..I LOVE it! :) & of course Google calendar & reader are great. 


I visit other blogs regularly but stepping out of the mommy blog world is the next thing on my list! :) totally enjoying the shape-up

Thank you for the help! Much appreciated. If you have time, stop over and check out my blog. I am looking for feedback because

1- I do not get many comments

2- Have lost approx 10 followers

However, I did get away from writing and did a lot of giveaways. I don't mind a giveaway here and there but I went back to my original focus. I think I may just have lost die hard giveaway entrants.

Hi Denise,


Post your blog post on twitter a couple different times a day.  People don't always see things. But remember, twitter is about the conversation. Join in on conversations and over time, if you are providing good quality information, people will retweet.


You can also periodically ask people to "RT Please"  Don't abuse that though.


I feel you on the commitment to blog regularly. it will come.  Just make sure you are engaging your readers. Maybe run a contest once in a while.  Also, adding video to your blog helps.


I'm a part of Friend Friday over at ModlyChic.  Join the group. We post weekly on a topic (Fridays) and us bloggers support each other with comments, retweets etc.


Hope this helps :-)

Step Three: I need help with this. I tweet my blog post when it goes out but I am not sure what else to tweet.
