400 Page Views in Two Days!
I'm back! Although I have been reading and commenting here and there, I had to take a few days off from writing here at Persona Paper because I have been busy with my blogging project, described in my recent article http://personapaper.com/article/15609-a-great-way-to-promote-your-blog . I interviewed the bookstore and the candy shop on Tuesday, the pet store on Wednesday, and the spa on Thursday evening. I published my blog post on the book store on Wednesday and the one on the candy shop on Thursday. Both shops posted a link to my article on their Facebook pages, and my page views took off like a rocket! Whereas I previously had 500+ page views on my blog in the entire time I've had it (since August, with 17 pieces of content), I now have well over 900 page views with those two additional pieces, and I have no doubt it will top 1,000 within the next day or so!
This is due to the power of promotion--you can promote your own work to the moon and back, but you only have the resources and the audience at your disposal. Getting other people to promote your blog is the key--in addition to the two businesses posting links on their pages, there have also been two shares of the bookstore article and one of the candy store article. That's people I don't even know promoting my work, for free, just because I wrote about something they like!
I will be posting my article about the pet store soon, and since I will be including information about a charity event that they are doing with several animal rescue groups in the area, I am hoping that those groups might share a link, as well. Wish me luck!
