Blog Posts, Like Knickers, Should Be Elasticated!

by on September 27, 2011


So, dahlings, here are a few of my tried and tested methods for getting the most out of my blog posts.

Some are free, some are paid, some are a mixture of both.

As always, I encourage you to use the free stuff as much as possible,

and only increase your overheads when you absolutely have to.

The first is IMAutomator

a sweet little tool that sends out to all sorts of out-of-the-way places on ze interwebs. You do have to post your link yourself each time, but it’s free and easy to use.

Secondly, don’t forget there are plenty of blogging tribes on Facebook ~

Do a search and I bet you’ll be amazed at what you find!

My favorite is one started by the gorgeous Dani McGrath, called The Blogging Mastermind Commenting Tribe, which works on a simple “Post One, Share Two” rule and has evolved into the most eclecticly uplifting group evah!

**Note – It is a closed group, so if you’d like an invitation to join, shoot me a DM on Facebook.

We are friends on FB, right????

And on we go …

And the More Formal Blogging Tribes …

In the video, I mentioned TSA – Tribe Syndication Association – which has just undergone a revamp and I’m looking forward to getting to know my way round it. It works on a spreadsheet system, which is a tad more complicated than the first two I’ve mentioned and has a one time $20 application fee.

Next is Better Networker community.

On YouTube, make sure that you fill out the description of your video as comprehensively as possible, and use keywords to make sure it’s easily found by the masses.

Your blog post can also be gussied up and posted on any or all of the dozens of Article Submission Sites on the web.

Remember, Google is your friend. Just do a search!

One Final Note!!

Google doesn’t like duplicated content, so when you’re re-using a piece, please remember that you MUST change it up a bit.

Change the headline, move the content around, edit it a bit, use another image – doesn’t have to be a radical overhaul … just enough to make it appear different to the search engines.


Now dahlings, this is by no means a comprehensive list … it’s just an intro the basics that have worked for me.

If you have more to add, please share your wisdom in the comments below.

What’s worked for you?

What hasn’t?

What do you wish you’d known when you started out?

We’re all dying to hear!!!


Bliss-ings and hugs,

I’m curious about working with the Huffington Post. I know a couple of bloggers who have basically used it as a syndication platform. Have you done this or known anyone who’s had success with it?

Hi Jacqui,

Helpful tips!

I use pingomatic, zimbio, a few Facebook Groups, LinkedIn Groups, stumbleupon and Google Plus to syndicate my posts. The more services the better, as promoting across multiple platforms elevates your search engine juice.

1 note: intend to become an active presence on at least a few networks. You receive many more clicks when you’re a giver, and not just a taker. Give freely, receive generously, is my mantra.

I’ve learned so much from you over at the Blogging Mastermind group, and I’m always thrilled at how thoughtful and generous your comments are.

Aloha Jacqui!

Thank you so much for your wonderful tips on how to really get our posts “out there”! Wow, this is very valuable! I have not heard of IMAutomator, so thank you I will try that!

I loved how you took out your white board to show us what you do and how you make your checklist. It was so clear!! And thank you for the Google duplication tip! You saved me on that one!

Much love & gratitude,
Kellie :)

You provided numerous resources for bloggers. I agree that once you systematize your writing/blogging practice it tends to get easier to manage and saves you time. Joining a blogging community is also a superb idea because you are bound to learn more ways to improve your implementation techniques.

BTW, here is a little pluggin that I use to help me track my blog posts. It’s called Wordpress Editorial Calendar by Colin Vernon, Justin Evans, Mary Vogt, and Zack Grossbart. You can certainly use it as part of your long-term blogging strategy.

Thanks for the tips!

Awesome post and video Goddess! I just loved it! Took lots of notes too! I am committing myself to a new challenge! I will get setup with a spe\raed sheet like you suggest and get the maximum love and give love to some great bloggers out there!

I feel that I just learned a lot with you in the last couple of weeks and I am certain that these few tips will help me a lot and will help many people getting into Blogging!

Thank you!!! <3

I am amazed on your post here and intrigued as well as interested in joining up the community of Bloggers on Facebook you are in. I am truly wanting to join up also. I don’t have any group yet. Just a solo guy working on blogs and doing certain SEO stuffs. I want to learn also from people with experience. And meet up some friends along the way.
Would love to learn more from you Miss Jacqueline Gates,

There are so many SEO tools available online that it can be overwhelming. And the good thing is that a lot of them are free. Now this is a good thing. It’s just a matter of doing our due diligence to see which ones are the best to use. Loved the video, by the way. Thanks!

I would just ask that people refrain from using irrelevant keywords with their Youtube uploads. Drives me nuts when I search the site and get so many useless results…
