Last year I wrote a post called So You Want to Start a Blog and since then I have sent to half a dozen friends who have asked and 5,600 people have visited in the last six months. In the last paragraph I wrote that I would publish a second part of the series called what do to once you have a blog and said it was coming “shortly”. Well, while shortly is a loosely defined period of time I will admit it has taken a bit longer to come together – but better late than never.
To make it a bit sweeter though I have decided to take this follow up post and break it out into two sections because I have so much to say about how to start a blog, part two. The first part, this post, will cover what you can do internally, on your blog, and the second post will be my suggestions for what you should do outside of your blog, hint: social media. Without further ado, what to do once you start a blog, the internal portion, broken into four key sections.
(1) Create Quality Content, Frequently
(3) Focus on SEO
