I have decided to participate the Wego Health Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge. They are offering a writing prompt for each day for the month in November.
Today is Day 2 and the questions were
What does the blogging process look like for you? Do you set aside time each week to write or do you wait until the inspiration hits? Do you finish a post in all one night or use the week to perfect it? Do you edit your blogs or just hit publish? Whatever if is you do, it’s unique to you and we want to learn about it.
Well , I started blogging just a few short weeks ago and I am still learning so much. But I love how I can put my thoughts, experience and knowledge in print.
Some days I feel like I have thousands of ideas running through my head at one time.
Blogging for me is about my experience my journey my life. But I also want to provide knowledge and education on a disease that’s rare.
I do have several awareness pages on f b , twitter, Instagram, YouTube and now a blog the blog seems more geared to my thoughts experiences it’s about me : my experiences where as the info pages are just sharing info one bone disease like Avascular Necrosis/Osteonecrosis
And other things about your bones and circulation of blood for bone health.
I hoped that I would get a ton of traffic overnight through various search engines like yahoo safari google.
Haha that didn’t happen
My blog is in the infant stage and I’m still learning how to blog.
The reality is you won’t get too much traffic from Google or Yahoo Safari because your blog is new…
I’m sure it will take months or years before the search engine traffic kicks in
But there are ways I have found to speed up the process.
You do it via Social media
FB , Twitter & Instagram are just a few examples of social sites that have helped get an audience reading and hopefully subscribe to my blog at some point.
I guess if you are willing to spend a few bucks you can buy ads on places like Facebook Twitter etc which I have on occasion or if you aren’t, you’ll have to focus on building your social media profiles.
I’m no blog expert by any means but being consistent is the key to any growth
How I noticed this when I made an awareness page for rare disease day which is February 29th on Fb it raises awareness on Avascular Necrosis/Osteonecrosis which is rare. I got good feedback from it and expanded it to cover many conditions of the bones and joints as well.
I take time everyday to blog and raise awareness however I don’t have a set schedule
Some days I spend 30 minutes other days an hour or two.
I worry about the length of the blog Is it to short or to long
I do try to change it up , provide information on Avascular Necrosis/ Osteonecrosis but then add some healthy recipes.
I try proof read everything but on occasion I don’t because I do get in a hurry. That’s something im trying to change.
I usually blog at the end of a day, when it’s dark relaxing and I can think about my day with a cup of tea and go from there.
