Getting Organized In Order To Succeed

For the last few weeks, I have been trying to find ways to increase the traffic to this blog. I keep telling myself that I must find a daily routine from the time I switch on my computer until when the kids come into my room, hollow eyes, looking very hungry!

I decided that I must do the following each day:
- Find a great new blog and write a comment on it,
- Add it to my "Favourite Websites",
- Find a new Freebies website, add it to my "freebies" and if possible, add a comment on their blog,
- Submit my blog to one new blog directory,
- Try and write one blog post.

If I don't get side-tracked (that is my main problem, I waste a lot of time everyday just reading blogs and just following links), I might have time to write one article a day on Associated Content.

I started a diary and when I get an idea for an article, I just write it down (yes, with a pen, on real paper, like they used to do before computers started to rule the world!), I also write down everything I achieved during the day, it helps a lot and it gives me a starting point every day.

Today, I achieved about half of my goals, now I must go and feed my children!

P.S. Sorry if I offended some people with the reference to my kids, I would never favour my blog over them, that was just a JOKE! It was going around in my head since yesteday, I just had to write it!

Congrats on the hard work you are putting into your blog. I know it takes about 3 months of hard work before you start to see some progress. The best thing you can do to get new readers is to have interesting articles that is written by you. No hype advertising and a touch of your own personality. When you have written enough of those really good and interesting articles people will tell other people and your readership will grow. Don't copy the rest of the crowd, be different.

As to the listing in blog directories - they work and they don't work. The reason I say that is the fact that my daughter has a small blog at wordpress that has no links to it what so ever. She has had it for about 10 months now and gets over 250 readers a day! They are coming from the search engines and she just happens to be using the key words that people are looking for.
