Getting very close to…

… 300 followers now. Even though my blogging is a little bit off right now I would be very happy if you recommended my blog. There are a lot to read, from second hand inspo to recipes and music.

And as always I would love to read your blog, comment and we will connect on social media.

//Hej, nya följare! Om du känner någon som vill ha inspo kring allt mellan secondhand, recept och musik, tagga mig! Jag vill också connecta med dig, länka din blogg, Insta, Pinterest, allt.

5 ways to market your blog

5 ways to market your blog

So, a fellow blogger asked me if I had any ideas on promoting your blog. And I thought I would share my advices or what I have learned so far:

  1. Use different platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and others to spread your blog. You can also make automated posts either from the platform itself or check out ifttt.com , there are really many things you can do.
  2. WordPress has a great community and there are a lot of bloggers supporting each other. So if you reach out to other bloggers and follow them many will follow back. Search in the WordPress reader with a key word so you can find bloggers with similar interests. Comment on one of their post and let them know you want them to check out your blog!
  3. Comment on other blogs and make a link to a post from your blog. Be sure not to spam, find a relevant post.
  4. Try networking! Many times I don’t have time to search for other blogs, but if someone likes a post I go to their blog and thank them. Also when people comment on my posts I always answer.
  5. Use hashtags for your topics, that can be very important on Twitter and Instagram.

What would you advice? What have you learned so far?

Några tips som jag har lärt mig på vägen när det gäller att marknadsföra sin blogg:

  1. Använd olika plattformar såsom Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr för att sprida din blogg.
  2. Använd dig av WordPress community där många bloggare gärna följer tillbaka och ger sitt stöd när du behöver det. Leta fram bloggar med samma intresse och kommentera så att de lär känna dig.
  3. Var aktiv och kommentera på andras bloggar.
  4. Nätverka med dem som hittar dig genom att besöka deras blogg och svara dem som kommenterar dig.
  5. Använd hashtags som kan vara viktigt för att andra ska hitta din blogg.

Vad har du lärt dig under din tid som bloggare? Vad har funkat?

 

Launching the new website for sadnesstheory.com

So the new website for Sadness Theory is here! Mostly the same as before but on a blog platform instead of the embeded MySpace-code. I guess WordPress will not suddenly just delete everything like MySpace did (no, I don’t hold grudges!) for it will be a blog disaster chaos.

So what’s new? Well, you have the same content with about, media, music, gigs and gallery on the meny option. The difference is that the webpage is now responsive, so it enables you to surf on any kind of device you like. The blog platform will make the blogging easier!

// Nytt utseende for Sadness Theory hemsidan med en responsiv design på bloggplatformen WordPress-som jag hoppas till skillnad från MySpace inte bara raderar hela bloggen en dag. Samma innehåll men den responsiva designen gör att surfandet blir enklare och jag hoppas även att bloggande blir smidigare!
