    Donna this is hands down one of the best blogs I have read – ever! I love your no BS attitude and advice that shows you’ve learned through trying and fine tuning a process that works!

    • Thanks Maria – that means a lot to me. It was interesting to break down what has worked for me and I definitely will be doing a lot more of these things in future! Thanks for your comment!

    Brilliant Donna! You always deliver the most amazing blogs and this one is no different. Love the way you break it down and provide chunky bites for us to work with but more importantly I love that you share everything with us. You are a true expert and visionary leader. Wish we could all have you for a mentor!….. Marianne

    • Thanks so much Marianne – I am definitely a big fan of blogging – and it is great to have you in Create Traffic Driving Images – that group has become like a mini mastermind so I love mentoring everyone in there… I really appreciate your comments! Happy Blogging!

    Great tips as ever Donna – many thanks! After ghostwriting blogs for several clients this past year I will soon be starting my own, once I get my website redeveloped onto WordPress. Looking forward to it as have lots of ideas 🙂

    • Hey Geraldine …yes!!! bring out those exceptional ghostwriting skills and put them to work on your own blog. Let me know how it goes!

  • Janina Lear

    Great Donna. I must admit I am on and off with my blog. I MUST get in a committed relationship with it. Thanks for these great tips.


    • ha ha I am so glad you are going to start having date night with your blog Janina. You will both love the attention…and I can’t wait – you are such a great writer!

  • Very interesting reading Donna, thank you for sharing your personal experiences and putting them together in such an educational article. I must say I’ve seen myself in many of the examples you’ve mentioned (post more often Antonio, POST MORE OFTEN!) But I feel confident too that I’m on the right track.

    • Awesome @AntonioCalero:disqus – I definitely could post more often but I really want to get across to everyone that even posting once per week can make a HUGE difference and I believe that readers come to expect content at certain times, on any platform. Marie Forleo is hands down one of the best examples of what can be achieved with one 5 minute video every week. She is resolute in providing quality content consistently…once per week. I hope to be posting 2-5 times per week on a consistent basis but and have plans to do that this year, so I will look forward to seeing more of your posts too!

    Thanks for the great blog tips and congratulations on the success of your blog and business.

    • Thanks Lynne..it’s a work in progress! Appreciate your kind words – have a great day!

  • Perfect! Just what I was looking for. I am trying to really make my blog matter in this internet world! Thanks for all the steps I will be sure to implement them!

    • No worries Blake – glad you found it useful!

  • Hi Donna, I am relatively new to blogging & found this post very inspiring!! I can especially relate to your first point about taking your blog seriously. I think this is my downfall at the moment…. I need to take my relationship with my blog more seriously and create some fireworks!!!

    • ha ha good luck – enjoy getting to know your blog better!

    Hi Donna!

    I just found your site today and boy am I glad. This was an extremely well written post with very clear points that I feel capable implementing. I launched my site in 2013 and have begun seeing some success but I want to up the ante this year in preparation for big plans next year. I am still trying to find my magic content mix but I think I’m almost there. This post was key. I think I might become obsessed with your site!

  • Hi Sarah – sorry this message got caught in my system and I only just saw it – that’s great that you are getting some consistency going – even if you can’t do 3 do 2 until you are consistent with that – even consistently posting one time a week helps. It definitely is my goal to post more often now – starting with 2-3 times per week. I think that is the sweet spot. :o) Good luck!

  • Thanks Ian! Glad you liked it!
