Tips for Keeping a Blog Running

Filed Under Virtual Assistant

Having a blog as a business owner can be a smart move and a powerful business strategy, however it takes time to maintain the blog and keep it running.  Here are a few tips to help you to maintain your blog and keep it running at its best.

These include:

Keeping a schedule. Scheduling works for just about any area of business, but especially well when it comes to running a blog.  A good blog schedule can help you to stay on track and keep your blog full of content.  And in the blog world, content is king.

Brainstorming. Brainstorming is a great way to create new and exciting content.  Use your clients questions and news stories to help give you ideas then create for yourself a list of topics you’d like to blog on as a result.

Outsourcing it. Sometimes you just can’t get around to everything in your business.  The blog is one area that you can outsource.  Finding a writer or virtual assistant to take over this task can be a huge weight off of your shoulders and can be a smart business decision for you.

    Very interesting thought, maintaining my blog by outsourcing. I’ve thought about it, but always wondered what the cost would be? Sometimes I get buried in the “social” aspect of promoting my blogs that I forget to add content to the sites I’m trying to promote! Is that a sign of me needing to outsource? LOL

    Great article and certainly things we need to remember when trying to keep up with our blogs. I think the schedule is one of the most important things about it as it seems to help me stay on track. However, there are even times I get off that schedule and find myself scurring around to get it all done. I absolutely love to write and have loved blogging. I really started it in the beginning to help me hone in on my writing skills and found it is quite fun!

    Good advice and will help us stay on track! Make it a magnificent day! If anyone ever needs assistance with their blog, please do let me know, I would be excited and happy to assist!
