as i previously posted, we're spending the weekend working on all things blog. i asked yesterday if what other resources people had to add. here are their tips!
the sits girls are having a build your tribe sign up. connect with other bloggers in your niche and spend one week working together on activities and just generally meeting new people and support each other with comments, re-tweets, pins, etc.
she also said "i use tweetdeck for scheduling posts. it has a dashboard or online version. you can schedule tweets but also create lists for different groups of people and it creates a column for each list so if you want to separate certain bloggers or sponsors etc it will let you do that for you. also karen from sew many ways has almost 50 blogger tips on her blog for just about anything you want to know how to do."from elizabeth at southern finesse:
"hootsuite seems complicated but trust me you can learn the base level stuff like scheduling tweets in no time. after you get used to using it for scheduling then you can play around and see if you like any of the other features."
"there's a program called evernote (http://www.evernote.com) that's free to download. you can create little "notebooks" to organize things. you can add urls, create checklists, and it comes with an add-on for your browser so if you find something online you want to add to a notebook, you can just click the button in your browser and it syncs up with the program. i believe they also have an upgrade you can pay to get as well. i was using this to keep track of my sponsors and making sure I was tweeting enough, doing the requisite posts and e-mails, etc. it's a great program and really easy to get the hang of."
she recommends back east blonde - "her blogging pinterest board is one of my favorites to raid and she often has great blogging related posts and helpful information, and I'm sure she'd answer any of your questions if you tweeted her as well."
from tara at starletta designs:
she has a wonderful post, just like this one, full of links to the blog resources she compiled! so check here for even more help!!
next weekend, i'll have another post for you full of the things people offered up during blog talk on twitter - advice for newbies, blogs to sponsor, why they unfollow a blog, and more. (it's just a little more labor intensive to compile, so i need a longer time frame, sorry!)
