Here I come. i’ve done it. The blog is online and has welcome its first (and few or happy few?) visitors.
First a thousand thanks for your first visits. Now serious things begin! What content I’m going to share? How can I create interesting content? Here is the checklist I have in mind. Before future optimizations!
1/How can I find ideas to create a interesting article?
Thanks to you: all your propositions will be considered! From social medias initiatives, questions and request of advice. I’ll try to do my best , so feel free to comment and share your own views!
Thanks to content curation: I’ve tested a couple of tools to do it. Google Alerts can be a good start in order to be informed of new articles about a specific topic (wether you are interested in fooding and sports…) bu as soon as you need to monitor different topics and specific sources other tools are more efficient. Personally I will use a combination of tools: Scoop.it, LinkedIn and Twitter. My experience of tools for content curation will certainly be the focus of one of my future articles by the way 😉
2/ What can I do from my ideas?
Start drafting it! Everything you’ve been experiencing can be inspiring! Try to synthesize, analyze and summarize: you’re experience, feeling, failures, interrogations are worth it! And the expertise we can find by analyzing all this can help us to be more effective in the future! Here is an example of what inspired me today:
3/ But… what am I going to blog about after my first article?
I’ve not decided yet of the frequency on which I will be able to post valuable content. A post a day from Monday to Friday seems to be ambitious but I’m gonna try.
As a result, I’ll have to work on a planing for the next few days in order to benefit from a frame that will help me to assess if I can reach this ambition or if I have to consider differently.
4/ Then… I’ll optimize the content… but how?
By working the SEO my dear Gromitt!!!
“Content management, content strategy, social media or SEO”…A few words not intended to be assimilated to “name dropping”. They will give more visibility to these articles… but will before that be the core thematics to be debated on this blog!
A content is designed to be seen, shared, discussed on social networks (Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, etc…) not to be forgotten on the web!
And by working the design!
As I’ve just said, content must be seen! Pictures, videos, infographics are some of the best tools to use in order to give simple and clear information (Link)
Of course this blog’s design is also important and will necessarily evolve in the coming weeks, days! And I would like top apologize already for the first mistakes that will be done or that are already done!
5/ Then… I’ll try to promote my articles!
Sounds quite mysterious when I use the word dissemination… I hope the following image will help to visualize the idea
I have personally decided to share the content I post via Twitter, a Facebook page, Scoopit, my LinkedIn profile… I’m still new but I’m considering of contributing to blogs in order to extend my community… but one step at a time.
First learning to walk and then I’ll do my best for running… because social media run!!!
🙂 Enjoy your week end! 🙂
