How to Blog--Free Seminar

Hi Everyone~

Thank you SO much for attending my classes! I hope that they were helpful. I received an awesome letter last night and I wanted to share it with you from someone who bought my books AND attended the seminar~

"Cindy, my followers went from 53 to 67 in the past 3 days!!! I'm so excited! Just a month ago I said my goal was to have 50 followers by the end of the year! lol Thank you for all you've done and continue to do to help me!"

* * * * * *

I've got a tip today:

When you join a link party, MAKE SURE that you put the hostess' address on your post. For instance, if I say that I am linking to Potpourri Friday at Honey's blog, I need to make sure that I highlight her party name and create a hyperlink to it. This is being courteous.

These parties are not free for the hostesses--they pay to have those parties. So, make sure that by linking up to them that you also create the ever-important backlink to their blogs!!!

If you need ANY tutorials on how to do certain things, like adding a blog button or a favicon, just go to Whimsical Musings Magazine--ALL tutorials are there.

* * * * * * *

AND, I have just added a new page to this blog. It is static, meaning I will keep the entire seminar there permanently. Blogging 101 AND Blogging 102 are there. If you have missed any part, you can always come back and visit. How cool is that?

Now, remember my Perils of Pauline story I needed to tell you??? Well, if you look up above on this blog, you will see a tab that says "How to Blog." Click it. Scroll down the page until you see Class 6. THERE'S my story....But, then you will see my final class "BLOGGING ANGELS."

AND after that is Blogging 102 for whenever you want to come back and read it. Like I said, it's short, but you will want to read about HOW to get higher rankings in Google, get your name on the first page in a search, etc.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!! Class dismissed! LOL

Before you leave, please +1 this for me--thank you!

AND, tomorrow I will have a BIG SURPRISE for all of you who have completed this class--so please be sure to come back!!!

AND, I will tell you one of the BEST SECRETS EVER to get your blog to have TONS of traffic!!! I don't mean followers--I mean ever-important TRAFFIC--people coming to your blog to see what you have to say!

Hi Cindy
You will have helped so many bloggers with this seminar.
To keep it static is a wonderful idea so that we can all come back now and again if we need a re-fresher course.
People visit you because of your warm heart and your amazing art.
Thank you for everything. You are a dear woman.

Lynne Moncrieff said...

You're simply the best!! Hugs, Cindy

Aloha Cindy;
I'm finally able to get back on the computer and finish your wonderful seminar. I knew I would have a length of time this Sunday evening.
I've had a great time participating in your seminar! It's so great you're leaving the seminar on your blog, but then that's what makes you such a wonderfully big-hearted person and such an excellent blogger!
Warm hugs to you!
