My 5 Most-Read Blog Posts from September 2022

My 5 Most-Read Blog Posts from September 2022

Features, Monthly Round Ups
Every month I post an update on the blog posts that did well from the previous month. So guess what I'm going to do this month? Yeah, the same. The top five articles from September include three book reviews and two feature articles. It's always fascinating to see which articles do well each month and see if they match up with the articles I thought would do well when I posted them. There is also the obvious argument that the earlier the post goes up in the month, the better chance it has to perform well as it has been on for longer. However, it is always even more interesting when the posts aren't in order of date and one blog post does well simply because it was more popular.…

Here’s your next read – the 5 best websites for finding your next book

Features, Recommendations
Finding your next read can often be quite a long process. I know the next book I read I often leave up to somebody else or my social media. I give them a choice of all of the books I fancy reading next and ask which I should begin with - I genuinely agree with the masses. However, sometimes there are other factors that come into it - such as whether it is available for me to listen to from my library or whether the book is discounted anywhere. But wait, what if there was a website that could offer you different ways to choose which next book to read or which next book you should buy? Well, I did some searching on the web for some of the best…

A Comprehensive Guide to Social media for Bloggers

Features, Tips and Tricks
I've been running a blog for over a year and have worked in social media in my professional career for almost 5 years. So I like to think I have some experience as to the dos and don't of social media. Social media for bloggers can be make-or-break. It's all well and good having a great blog that you put many hours into and is well written, but if you never share it for it t be seen, it's going to be very difficult for it to have any real value. Why is social media important for a blogger? There are many reasons you'd want to get your social media feeds going for a blog. The first and foremost is simply to promote your blog to an external audience. Other…

My Top 5 Posts on my Blog in August 2022

Features, Monthly Round Ups
Every month I like to look back and see which posts from those I posted did the best. This not only allows me to keep a historical archive of which articles have done the best so I can then use these going forward or when I need to look back for inspiration but it also allows me to share content with those of you who are aspiring bloggers. These posts below are the top five performing meaning they received the most amount of views from the month. These posts have all been posted within this month. If I posted the top five most-viewed articles each month that weren't posted in that month, they'd all be fairly similar and repetitive. So here are the top five most viewed blog posts from…

I've been blogging for well over a year now and so have some experience when it comes to writing blog posts.
