Why My Blog is a Hog and Tips for YOU

BLOG HOG

Bloggity, blog, blog

Sloggity, slog, slog

What I’ve learned

Is a blog is a hog!

It hogs my time

It hogs my thoughts

But I also think

I like it a lot.

I’m here to tell you some of what I’ve learned. And what I’m still learning, as I develop my freelance writer’s website and business.

And the first lesson is a blog is a must

Especially if you are looking for work as a writer. It becomes a testimonial of sorts, showcasing your work and what you can do for your clients.

By producing your content, customers and prospects will see what you can do for them. And some of what they can expect.

I look at having a writing business website as a sort of online resume that helps people get to know me.

For me, you, and many companies, a website with a blogging presence gives added value. It becomes a big old playground of sorts to experiment and learn things every single day.

Kathryn Aragon, a content marketing expert, calls it my sandbox and I think she has a point. Even so, I’m afraid of playing in there sometimes. Here’s why.

For one thing, I’m technologically challenged and don’t want all my work (so far) to crash.

Then again, with mentor Kathryn egging me on, I’m doing some pretty fancy things with technology. Things beyond what I ever dreamed I’d be able to do.

I know because I tried before. But with a burst of determination, strong-headedness, and some educational guidance (Thanks, K.A.) too, I am working beyond what I ever believed I could, technologically speaking.

Web businesses need to be malleable to compete in a turbo-paced digital environment. So the attitude of the experimental sandbox may be a good philosophy for companies of all types.

If you’re ready to take it up a notch, the new Rainmaker Platform promises to offer a robust and updated platform but requires an investment to use. I suspect it will become more and more prevalent and from what I’ve read, they’re aiming for high capabilities sure to benefit users.

Takeaway 1: Do it or you never will. Even with technology. It’s the way business works now. I know, I’m so 2015!

Let’s face it, it’s not like I’ve never made a mistake before…how about you?

If you look at technology struggles with a “what have I got to lose” attitude, you may surprise yourself.

Sure it will be a fight for some time to come like it was before I began to take it on, but I’m learning, and I love it. Guess I’m up for the challenge after all. Though if you’d asked me a year ago, I would have downright laughed at you.

Keys I used to crack the technology code

WordPress, an industry standard, was for me a humongous intimidating, scary monster.

As it turned out, it was only one among a million technology creatures. But you have to fight creatures in order to get into the blogging and content marketing game, in a digital kind of way.

So be ready to push yourself. It’s just too important to NOT learn. For oh so many reasons. The responsive design and blog posting capabilities in this platform are just two.

An online business presence and YOU need to get to know each other so you may as well embrace it.

Having your own hosted site and domain name establishes your “real estate” online, as Sonia Simone, CMO and co-founder of Copyblogger Media, refers to it.

Kathryn Aragon calls it your “Marketing Hub” or the anchor of your business’ website content and marketing efforts, too.

So jump in and make your own internet space to work from.

Own it and love it even if it feels like it may break you.

At least that’s my approach. Besides, I refuse to get broken. Ha.

Takeaway 2: Develop your own real estate. You have to. It’s the only way to go.

Whether you’re just jumping in or in knee deep, what are some of the must-have tools you can’t live without?

Look, I’m still amazed at the interesting and mega useful tools out there. Software, apps, plugins (which I had never even heard of a short time ago) and, well, tools, help make your website, blog, and even you, productive and first rate.

Most of the stuff I am working with is great, even at the free level. Others are inexpensive, which works for the developing small business budget every time.

My method of attack to bring new frightening beasts into my digital work goes a bit like this:

  • Listen to what mentors and other resources suggest or recommend.
  • Try the ones that seem either important or necessary for progress.
  • Play, test, experience, and otherwise feel your way around. It helps you know what you can and want, to incorporate into your website and your writing arsenal.
  • Find tutorials, webinars, or user guides. Make help desk phone calls, even, before you stop using something.  Especially if you like it, or must use it, as is sometimes the case. (example: WordPress.org)
  • Persist. Because quitters never win, right? Take it slow, one at a time if you have to. That’s what I did.
  • Sometimes quitting the frustrating fight with hairy technology gives you the break you need. Even just overnight, for example. Who knows, sometimes things magically work the next day (like after my 20 hours tussle with AppSumo for sharing buttons) because folks wanted to share my work, so I needed sharing buttons NOW! Or you may have a sudden brain flash, so when you go back to working on something, everything comes together, miraculously makes sense, and you figure out how it works. Yay! And sometimes, you may have to actually quit. I’ve had to admit defeat because some things are just plain over my head. For now.
  • Give it time. This is the hardest part. I hate taking days at a time to figure out how to work with something or other. I couldn’t even navigate Microsoft WORD, the most popular word processor known to mankind because it’s new to me. I still find it frustrating, but I’m typing on it now because it is the standard accepted submission format for writers. And it’s the easiest to copy to my WordPress site. Remember, everything gets better with practice. At least that’s my plan.

Takeaway 3: Plan a method of attack. Or use mine. And attack.

Synopsis of my favs

Try these out.

Easy, free or low cost, and must-have, depict my selection criteria on this short tools list.

I’m not ordering them in any particular way, but as they flow from connections made in my brain, however, that will work out. Here goes:

Evernote. A revelation for me and still a favorite place to store collections of research on topics in individual “Notebooks.” You can make lists, organize a group of pictures, and save things to read as well as links, quotes, reference materials, and even more.

And I still only use the free version. The next step-up in features is only about 5 dollars a month, so still reasonable, if your needs grow.

Sorcerer's Secrets
Canva Magic by a Mere Muggle! I love this “magic wand.”

Canva.  Ann Handley says it best in her famed Everybody Writes:

I particularly like the simple, intuitive interface that puts magic wands in the design hands of muggles.” 

So true. If you aren’t using Canva already, you’re missing an essential ingredient for your blog post design and graphics elements in your writing work. If you’re a muggle too, try it now!

Trello.  Ann Handley brings me to Trello. Why? Because I read a post by Ann that said it was an excellent tool for her and thought, hmmm, maybe I should check it out since she seems to like and use this one.

But, I don’t have a team that I regularly work with so I thought, maybe not.

A long story told in a short way, I decided to check it out and am tickled with it since. I don’t usually fuss about tools. Because it’s a big thing that I even try them, but here’s what I tweeted after I started to figure out how to use it, at least a little:

IMG_0125IMG_0126

IMG_0127

Piktochart. Infographics are not only a popular way to provide data in an interesting way but offer a visually appealing and high cognitive approach for showing information to make your content even more engaging.

Here’s my Piktochart called “Annisms I Love” showing quotes, like the one above, from Ann’s book. (Hey, these are good tips for you, too!)

Annism Piktochart (1)

All four (4) of these are great assets to writing and blogging to help with research, organization and visual presentation in your posts.

Air Story is the newcomer to the productivity arena, and if Joanna Weibe is involved, it’s sure to be top shelf. We all better check it out.

The next tools are to use within your WordPress site.

These are only basics in the vast world of plugins but are valuable beyond expected and will help every website of any kind.

AppSumo. I mentioned this one earlier. I had the plugin already installed but was too green, digitally speaking, to even apply it (yet) and then just absolutely had to! And fast. Help AppSumo!!!

AppSumo is an amusing app (group of people led by Noah Kagan) with notes from the “fat ass sumo” and lots of taco talk, but it does some pretty awesome things.

I’m still learning (there’s so much more) about this one and right now am pleased to have free sharing buttons on my site pages and blog posts in my preferred color choice. Look for all kinds of deals that AppSumo will send your way.

Optinmonster is a similar plugin for pop-ups and list building, welcome mats and title bars too, with great reviews. I haven’t had a chance to check it out yet but take a look for comparison.

Yoast SEO Plugin. SEO (search engine optimization) is important if you want your site, your articles, your blog, and your product/services found and ranked in search engines where people look for things.

What I love most about Yoast, is that it helps you learn how…literally guides and scores you…to incorporate your work with SEO on each and every piece. Great!

TweetDis.  A super cool, incredibly easy way for people to share your blog posts to Twitter with just a click.

As soon as I decided to dive (think swan dive, fear belly smacker) into the social media pool to join Twitter, I had to have it! I did pay for this one (about $40) but so far, I’m pleased.

There may be other options to click and tweet, but the point is that you do want someone (anyone!) to read your work, and this will help you and others share it.

MailChimp.  I’m most pleased of all that I am using this one even though it doesn’t offer an email auto-responder on the free level.

I created a signup form, thank you response and welcome email. A good start:)

It took a little more fooling around and learning to get set up. But you must have a system to collect emails (to create your list) and to share your work, whether you share blog posts, newsletters or whatever.

My feeling is that I have further to go (and grow into) using MailChimp to the fullest but, I think if I can do it, anyone can.

AWeber is another comparable choice, and you probably see Infusionsoft around a lot with bigger enterprises or if you have more significant needs and budgets.

I told you this was a synopsis, so I’m only sharing the icing on the cake, the gotta haves, for now.

Takeaway 4: There’s a tool out there for you. Find it. Use it.

Follow the leader, but only so far

A writer’s journey follows many paths but, no two will be the same.

Start with finding great examples for writing in your dream trade (or genre if you prefer.)

Blogging and freelance writing for a living present a whole world of struggles and issues, even beyond keeping up your quality blog, but some keys can help you.

Reading, for example, is always a prerequisite for great writers, but can you do more?

I started on a copywriting path, turned left to freelance writer and honed to the off-shoot “content writer for business.”  I’m still flitting around though.  I have a natural instinct for business, may even qualify as an “expert” in some respects because I’ve owned and operated a small business for over 25 years.

But the thing is, well, I have a lot of interests. And in truth, when you write for other companies and their readers/audience, you need to gear your writing toward very specific goals as prescribed by your client. You need to adapt and learn and grow. And be willing to do so.

Maybe you’re like me and find it hard to “conform” and write in a single, consistent format. Maybe it’s the artist and creative spirit of writers that make this a problem for more folks than me but, at any rate, you have to start by doing something, trying things, experimenting.

You’re allowed to change things and will likely get better as you go.

Find some leaders to emulate! I’ve been so lucky with my discoveries on this front. And I’ve found professional writers and bloggers help each other and new writers out.

Kristi Hines is a great place to start as you probably already know. It took me a long time (probably a year or more) of reading and loving her work before I came across her website. Then I signed up for her list, which continues to provide useful information at every email issued. And also how I found this site.

Kathryn Aragon is a treasure, and I can’t say how much she helped kick my butt in gear, or how much I’ve learned from her. She let me know that reading, more education, studying, courses and research galore (that I had been drowning myself in for 8 months before meeting her) was NOT going to get me where I need and want to go.

But getting my own sandbox sure does! [In my case, I had to get off the website builder and get a “real” writer site with the big kids on WordPress, like it or not, and that’s just for starters!]

Kathryn also introduced me to work of other pro writers who are on the absolutely-must-read list (and I’m certainly not the only one who thinks so). Like: Ann Smarty, Sharon Hurley Hall, and Barry Feldman, just to name a few.

And those writers led me to further contacts and discoveries. Some of which are even more startling than the ones already mentioned.

A-list writers like: Ann Handley (a gem), Joanna Weibe (brilliant), Chris Brogan, Danny Iny, Mark Schaefer, Cathy Miller, Sonia Simone, Henneke Duistermaat, Andy Crestodino, Amy Chick, Jeff Goins, Joe Pulizzi and one writer I like to think of as an insane genius (hope he won’t mind) and that would be James Altucher.

And my latest writer crush (hat tip to Sonia Simone, who shared this fab piece of writing) is, I think, a sports writer mainly, named Joe Poz-something but check this out! Strong. Relatable. Writing.

The point is that once you are blogging and writing, reading other bloggers/writers will teach you and show you a lot of things to aspire to for your craft. It will also give you tons ideas to use.

This group represents writers I’ve found since starting my freelance online writing business (these and more) but don’t forget to read a million other things too. On and off the web.

Now that I think of it, I have A LOT of favorite writers and all kinds, but this group is extremely pertinent for online writing. You can learn a lot from reading/studying any one of them.

Hey, you might even find some things you hate and don’t ever want to do!

Takeaway 5:  Don’t just read. Read to understand and learn. Find your favorites and try to figure out what they do that makes them so fabulous and then practice to do it too.

I refer to Kathryn Aragon one more time because she said to me once, “Copy me.” NO, she didn’t mean to plagiarize (or scrape I think the pros call it) but she DID intend for me to try to emulate her work and replicate some fundamental and proper writing techniques.

She wanted me to write about things that can help other people and offer usable tips but in my own voice, and from my own experiences. And, here’s the kicker: write it in an original way.

I hope that sharing frustrations, tips, and tools that are part of the hog that is my blog will help you, too.  So let me know by commenting, please.

P.S. Thanks for having me, Kikolani:)

Hi Sue-Ann,

Excellent sharing of your blogging story and you’ve mentioned many of my favorite tools: Canva, Trello, BuzzSumo I use regularly. Been meaning to make time to learn to use Piktochart.

Check out the new social sharing plugin Social Warfare. It isn’t free, but worth the $24/yr to someone serious about social. It has “Click to Tweet” built in that is really easy to use. You can push 3 different text and images to different social networks, so you can send a long, tall image like an infographic to Pinterest and an image optimized for Twitter (twice as wide as it is tall) to Twitter.

The best advice I can give any blogger is to join a collaboration of bloggers who help each other. We have one and there are many others.

Gail:
Thank you so much for taking time to read and comment…appreciate it! Also, thanks for the good advice as well. I will definitely check out Social Warfare…new one to me. I couldn’t agree more, a blogging collaboration, or writer group, can be an important key to writing success. Thanks so much, again. Sue-Ann

I agree very strongly with the idea that a blog is a must. For you as a writer, and also for those I work with a great deal – management consultants. For writers it is pretty obvious, why. For consultants it is too, in my opinion, to give people an idea of the ideas they have to share.

A blog is such a powerful communication tool, and blogs are powerful marketing tools also.

The technology gives each us of such power to reach an audience that would have been very difficult previously. If it worries you a bit people should realize the technology is pretty easy to master now. And second it isn’t going away wether you learn it now or learn it next year or the year after. You might as well learn it now and start reaping the benefits.

John:

Oh my goodness, John, you really hit a key for business writers, like you and I. Businesses don’t always understand the importance of blogging as a business driver and important communications tool for their target audience. Writing introduces a business, shares info about a business/product/service and builds trust in a business, even closes the sale, and so much more. I believe blogging can be a strong marketing component but should not be salesy or hype to get the job done! Thank you so much for your input. I’m with you on the technology aspect too…just do it! That’s the only way, as I’ve been learning:) Thanks again. Sue-Ann

Thanks! A lot of really good tips here. I’m going to be starting a small blog for my website to help boost my SEO so will defiantly put some of these practices into place.

> should not be salesy or hype

I totally agree. A blog is a place to inform and entertain (the ratio varies a great deal from one blog to another).

Especially for consultants the blog isn’t about converting a sale by itself. But it keeps you in people’s minds. Really it is most valuable when they keep reading you and then have an issue and need help and think of you. And sometimes they are familiar with you and so when you try to make a sale you start with a big advantage (perhaps attending a seminar by you or hiring you for a consulting project).

Okay, I can honestly say this is the FIRST time I’ve been referred to as an A-list writer. 😀 And put in such excellent company. Thank you, Sue-Ann.

I so feel your struggles. I have run the gamut of you MUST post at least three times a week (almost killed me) to once a week to my current bi-monthly. I’ve gone from one blog to four. I get that many interests thing. 😉 And I plan a major redesign of my business communication blog next year.

So, you are not alone, Sue-Ann. Listen to your own inner voice and beware if it sounds too much like the latest guru – or A-lister. LOL! Thanks so much for the kind link love.

Cathy:

You are a pro! And a super nice person on top of that. Thank you for the lovely comment and I have to say, hearing this all from you DOES make me feel better:) so thank you once again. Sue-Ann

Hello,
Nice one. you have mentioned some of my favorite tools. I use Yoast SEO plugin, Appsumo and MailChimp. Never heard about tweetDis. Will surely give a try to it.
Anyways, keep up the good work.

Thank you, Mahesh. I think you’ll love TweetDis. I’m pretty sure that it increased tweets by a big margin for Kathyrn Aragon when, as editor, she started using it at Crazy Egg. Thank you so much for the nice comment as well. Best- Sue-Ann

Thank you so much, Sue Ann for the kind mention!

I’m honored to be included in such a fab list of writers amongst quite a few of my faves 🙂

Thank you for sharing your blogging journey.

Henneke:

I’m so honored that you took the time to check this out and comment, too!
I really appreciate it more than I can say! Thank you so very much.

And anyone who sees this would be smart to hop on to following your work like I do.
Thank you, Sue-Ann

Writing is blogging, and blogging is writing! But writing is also a skill and can and should improve as you practice, learn and grow with your craft. Good for you…two blogs is double hogs. Lol Thanks for the note, Sue-Ann

Hi Sue-Ann,

My website is fairly new and I’m trying! to incorporate a blog to keep the content freash and engage my customers. Thanks for the tips. I need all the help I can get.

Darrin: Thanks for the comment. You can do it! And you are exactly right, consistent and new content helps in many ways from SEO/serp, to building an audience, to engagement, etc. Don’t be afraid to experiment and try new things, like Infographics, for example, to help keep things fresh for readers. And don’t give up, trust me, you’ll get better at everything as you go. Good luck, Sue-Ann

Susanne: Greetings! I think your answer is in knowing who your audience is, more German or English? Consider who you serve or who your ideal customer is, first. Maybe it’s both? Your timing is pretty good if you are thinking about improving your English though, because I’m just finishing a post about *editing *grammar *writing tips for blogging for Kikolani. It may have some helpful links you can use so look for it, soon. Thanks again and best wishes. Sue-Ann

Greetings and best to you on your blogging journey. Pleased to have you as a reader and learning blogger. Thanks for commenting, too! Sue-Ann

thanks guys for all the helpful tips hogs taking over my deer woods caught 5 the first night i set my homemade trap no hogs in area for 25 years then overnight

There are some great tips here that I think are really helpful. It made me laugh when you described WordPress as a scary monster. However you are right, you need to fight the monsters.

Thanks, Jay. Love that I made you laugh. Sometimes in blogging, it’s a matter of laugh at yourself, or cry! Thanks for taking the time to comment and I’m so glad you found some things helpful. Thank you, Sue-Ann

I’m so happy you found this useful and SEO is very important so the Yoast tool is more than helpful but, I don’t suggest writing FOR SEO but for your readers, first, always:) Best to you and thanks for the comment. Sue-Ann

James, I have to think about or research to give you a better answer but, one thing I can suggest is WritersMarket.com which may lead you to trade magazines, etc. relevant to your industry. Hope that’s a helpful starting direction for you. Thanks for reading the post. Oh, and your site looks nice so best of luck with things. Sue-Ann

I like to use Yoast SEO for my blog for it really optimise my blog and I can see it on Google. However, I haven’t tried some of the tools / plugins you have mention. I will keep those thing for my future reference. Thank you for sharing this.

Hi. My blog http://crispydose is 4 months old, being updated frequently and is a multi niche blog. I am not able to generate traffic on it and when traffic is good, people dont engage in commenting and giving feedback. What as per you can be done on this. Thanks a lot in advance

You know, traffic and engagement are the million dollar questions for blogging. I think everyone develops these, to some degree, in their own way and each path is different. For you, I will say two things that may help. First, consistency is the key to “making it” in the highly competitive blog environment and four months is a relatively short time to get established so in that regard, keep up the quality work and hang in there. Secondly, when you say multi niche, I stop and wonder if that may add to your problem as general wisdom provides that focus and narrowing to a niche to establish your particular place (and expertise as THE place to go in this area) is the best way to go, and how the top performers do it.

Of course, other factors could apply too. Like, how are you measuring quality of content? How are you doing with building a list or audience and are you using any type of ads to drive traffic to you site? Are you promoting content and getting notice with social shares, etc.

There is a lot to both think about and analyze but, overall, I think you are at early stages so keep up the work and don’t give up. That may be the best advice of all, from my own experience.

Hope that helps. To your success, Sue-Ann

I’m so pleased to help with some insight on this topic for you. There really is SO much to consider and learn along the way. Thanks for taking time to write. Take care and thanks, Sue-Ann

Thank you for your comment. Social media is definitely a whole other hog to tackle. Hmmmm. Maybe I should write something about how that quest is going! I may be a social 0, so far. So please….share this post and help me!!! lol Thanks and best wishes. Sue-Ann

I appreciate the resources provided I’ve checked a few of them. I have two blogs one in private transportation and one in auto detailing. i probably spend an hour a day at least on both of them. And many more hours doing research and reading other peoples blogs to find better ways of doing it.

I have YOAST with WP, but it seems like they changed their layout?
Now, if I want more ways to use SEO, I have to pay for premium. =/

I’m a novice and am learning each day.

I’m blogging on my own dime with a very slim budget.

Thanks for this article.

Meena:

I think Yoast SEO did change/update some things, and I’m not exactly sure about what all that means yet, either. But aside from some collaboration with a service called “On-Page” (also a free option) I think it is, I am still able to setup post SEO with free Yoast plug-in, same as always. The dashboard is a bit different, but I didn’t have to buy anything new so far. I totally know what you mean about spending.
I’m on a shoestring budget, too, but I do have a few website and plug-in type stuff on my wish list a lot, lately:) I wish you the best and just take it slow, buy as you can is what I advise. Thanks for the note. Sue-Ann

Sue-Ann

I found allot of the information quite good, but I think do to niche difference how much was directly applicable right this moment on the marketing aspect of it is something I am looking at further down the line. As for other aspects, Yoast for instance is probably allot closer. But coming from a background of SEO I can handle on page fairly well for now and I am after style, readability and content quality first and latter on rewrites and updating probably Yoast it to death.

And I will probably also look at Scribe. I don’t know exactly what it does, but Harsh Agrawal recommends it every time he turns around and he search engine ranks like crazy. His blog has had 7 years to build that up though.

The thing that struck me most on your post was actually style. The long form, how you do it and how much you pack into it where you are not repeating the same thing for 3,000 words or just targeting the daylights at a search engine with 1,600 on a subject written 10 million times already.. In this style we are somewhat similar. You are allot better at it. Practice does make perfect, if you care and want to get better.

Now, I am going to be quite straightforward with you here on how I showed up to begin with. My most recent piece was about what is happening to comment sections. And since I blog about blogging most of the time, this makes me dependent on having a fully login able comment section. I am a realist I believe on this fact. I added at the end that I was going to try out comment luv and installed the free version to test it.

So this is how I landed here on your blog. Because the very next post I want to write is what I think is the top 10 comment luv bloggers. So I looked for your search bar to see if you had written a piece on the subject, or about comment sections. I can’t find a search bar and this post looked interesting so this is the one I read.

I don’t jump into writing any post. They are researched to death and possibly over written to death still. So if I am going to write one about what equals the top 10 comment luv bloggers, it will of course start off all about Andy developing this plugin and what it does. He is just naturally the first section of the post.

Then comes who are those top 10 comment luv bloggers and why. Some of this will be based on statistical facts. Allot of it of course will be subjective as to why I feel they are. Issues of style and content. And finally of course since they are already read at least 3 times and their pieces left with a extensive comment, along with a substantial description of what they do, there is a final issue.

The capacity to even comment luv link a heavily researched and developed post with a major reference to them in the post, off their blog. This should be rather interesting in itself as the top comment luv bloggers could also be the most restrictive and lord knows how many I will need to read to establish all of those factors except that last one. Will a heavily researched piece, heavily and directly referencing them even be able to link that piece in a comment section?

I know you are probably quite busy with writing and marketing, but the post on comment sections where I installed Andy’s free version after writing it is my last post. It is 5007 words long, but if you have written a post about comment sections or comment luv, since I cannot find a search bar, I would appreciate it if you have time, drop by and leave a quick comment on that post, and hyperlink in your post on the subject or subjects.

They may not be within that 10 post range of the free version, so just stick them in the comment directly if they are not. And I can read your post to get the style down better while reading your thoughts on the subject. If you have a within a 10 post range on comment luv you want to link in on top of it, do that also.

Thank you Sue-Ann

James .

James:

Thanks for your time and comment. The question of comments on a blog is important. Some of the big boys (copyblogger as an example) do not allow them anymore and I find this to be the case for other sites as well though, I think it takes something away when it comes to losing a valuable interaction with people. People who are readers. People who are readers of YOUR work.

Neil Patel on the other hand gets more comments than anyone, I think, and he definitely pulls a huge following and has highly engaged readers, a key to his continued huge success. He responds to every. Single. Comment.

Which is “right” or best, is perhaps, like many things, a matter of opinion. I’m going to read your post on “comments” and see what else you say on the subject. It is a question I have thought of as well but haven’t written about as a topic, though the question does reside in an outline as part of a discussion in a post I have beèn working on….interesting it is.

Thanks James. Take care. Sue-Ann

Thanks for taking a look at the “Blog Hog” and it’s true, persistence makes all the difference to being successful. Oh, and yep, keep trying those tools! I keep finding new ones to try and test too:) Best in blogging…
