Seven Ways to Make Your Blog a Success—#2 Will Surprise You

Standard

toast(I was going to call this blog post “The Festival of Posts” but I went for click-bait instead.)

The Festival of Posts is a twist on an inside joke at our house: The Festival of Toast. When my husband wants to transform something boring, he calls it a festival. At least twice a week he’ll serve the kids breakfast he calls “The Festival of Toast.” It’s no festival. It’s just toast. Buttered toast. Peanut buttered toast. Toast with jelly. Voilà! Instant festival.

The idea here is that you could pledge to blog once a week and share it on Facebook. Or you could join one of those blog hops in which you and 10,000 other bloggers pledge to blog once a day for a month and read and comment on 10,000 blogs.

Or you could set your expectations really, really low, rope in some friends and call it a Festival.

Here’s what six writers from Write on Mamas have decided to do between February 15th and March 15th:

Step 1: Write a blog post
Step 2: Publish that blog post
Step 3: Share that blog post
Step 4: Read someone else’s blog post
Step 5: Comment on that blog post
Step 6: Share that blog post
Step 7: Rinse and repeat for each blogger

 

Voilà! Instant festival.

  1. I am excited to be a part of the festival of posts! I will also be implementing various festivals at home (laundry maybe? Room cleaning?). Thank you for the inspiration!

    Oh man, I fell for the bait and ended up wallowing in toast! So be it. Let the festival begin!

  3. Oh, man, I wish I were writing my post for the Festival of Posts instead of contemplating my writer’s block. But yours gave me a chuckle, inspired me, and besides, I figured out how to download photos from a new app, so if I ever write my post, I’ll be ready with my photo.

    A toast to your post, Janine, and to all the others!
