Mint Hill, NC Real Estate Agent and Home Stager

Pimping my Blog

Pimping my Blog.  I have been participating in the May challenge blogging contest and so far have stayed the course with blogging daily.  I started the challenge wanting to get points and increase my rankings but I have gained so much more over the last several weeks.

For starters, I employed the services of Marti Garaughty at  the Art of Marketing You to pimp my blog header and backgrounds.  Looks pretty cool.  He also gave me some simple instructions to add buttons to my blog so people can follow me (got the buttons in place, and added the links).  If you haven't taken this step, I highly recommend it and use Marti he is very easy to work with.

Secondly, I am starting to work on SEO and trying to gear my posts with SEO in mind.  I learned about  another ActiveRain member by the name of Katerina Gasset and her class SEO to the Top by reading Brenda Mullen's blog, Do you Recycle..., you could have easily inserted my name into her blog intro where she talked about not understanding SEO and Keywords when she got started.  I have my June cut out for me and will be calling Katerina.

I have also had great fun, gotten comments on my blog posts, had some great laughs while commenting on others and learned more than I expected to through out this venture.  I am glad I got started.  I am sorry to hear there were some issues at Active Rain but am happy with my experience and looking forward to continuing my blogging and increasing my web presence.

I hope everyone else has had fun and plans to continue their blogging journey past the May Challenge.  Let me know what you think of my Pimped Blog so far and I hope to see you soon in the blogosphere.
