Weekly Blog ChecklistFriday, October 03, 2014
Hello, lovelies~ Friday is here and that means the weekend is upon us! Have you got anything planned for the weekend? Going out to the mall with friends or even an awesome road trip? Either way, I hope you will have a wonderful weekend with the people you love.
Today, I wanted to share a few more blogging tips that I find useful over the years I have been blogging. Last week, I posted a few things I wish I knew back when I first started blogging, so this time I wanted to share my weekly blogging checklist.
As the name suggested, it is a checklist of the things I usually inspect on my blog during the weekends. Call it a weekly blog checkly, if you like. Just to keep things in order so that my blog visitors can get the best while reading the posts here. These are things I do every week to maintain my blog.
Reply Blog Comments
Nobody likes their questions unanswered, so go through your email and reply any comments you have on your blog posts. It's better to reply your reader's questions via email, but if they are a no reply blogger (which I will talk about in a different post), you can always reply in the original blog post.
You've Got Mail!
While you're inside you email inbox, spend a few minutes checking if you missed any blog-related emails from potential clients or sponsors.
If you have any ads on the sidebar, do check if they are still valid. Some ads have a limited promotion time and you need to take them off your blog if it's already 'expired'. Plus, it helps to declutter your sidebar, right?
Fit Me In!
Using a calendar makes things a lot easier since you can see what has been published on your blog. I usually take time selecting and placing the blog post on my phone calendar.
One of the most important thing to do is to backup your blog, especially when you have just changed your blog template. You can access this in the "Template" page of Blogger and choose Backup/Restore on the top right page.
I hope this blog post can be of help to those who are just starting out in the blogging world. I remember when I first started and didn't backup my blog, I felt horrible because it was irretrievable. Yeah, I was frustated, but I learned from my mistake. How about you? What did you do for your weekly blog maintenance?
Let me know in the comments below and until then, I'll see you later~
