I’ve begun sharing some of the things I’ve learned while working as a virtual assistant. This is the second in that series. You can find #1 here
Last year, I had the pleasure of attending Online Blog Con – a blogging convention entirely online. And as a bonus, I was assigned a mentor to help me address some of the things I struggle with as a blogger – like say, posting consistently. Especially when the depression/anxiety stuff kicks in.
My mentor Kayla from Say Not Sweet Anne suggested that whenever I could, I should split posts into more than one. Got a bathroom remodel? Give each step/part it’s own post. Want to share spring cleaning tips? Give each tip a starring role in a separate blog post.
It was a really eye opening thought for me, and I can say that as I’ve been working to be more consistent, it’s been helpful. It’s a case of work smarter, not harder. Efficiency.
This was only reinforced when I started looking at my client’s posting habits and link party submissions. Y’all, they get plenty of real estate out of one topic presented over several posts.
Multiple, concise posts on a subject are a lot easier to write than one long, rambling post with ALL THE THINGS.
It’s something I’m working on daily – like say, with this series. It really does help out with consistency a lot.
So thanks Kayla for hookin’ me up!
