Alright, Have reached the end of this blogging series. I thought I would show you have I put everything together so that you can catch the full overall picture.

I have a self-hosted WordPress blog. My topic of discussion is Social Media. I wanted to cover how a small business could actually handle their social media while still being able to have a life after business hours.

I have tried blogging daily it is possible but that is if I have all the time in the world. I was able to do it for a couple of weeks but you quickly run out of topics to talk about. unless you are crazy dedicated to your passion. So I chose to post weekly. In fact, I post every Monday at 6 am. Unless there is a special holiday that I want to bring attention to, like Social Media Day or International Podcast day.

Seo wise I normally think of three keywords that I want to use specifically for this post. Then add 2 more words that are overarching for the whole blog that I try to slip into each post.

For this post, my 3 words are Blog, Success, and series. While my two overall words are Social Media and Small Business. I don’t always get them into the post but I do try. If I can work it into the post to where it sounds natural then it is a no go. I also try to get links to other blogs in for a little Google love.

I often find topics to write about through podcasts that I listen to.  I also use an RSS reader to scan through other blogs about social media a great site is The Social Media Hat by Mike Alton

I don’t do much in the way of revenue generation with this site because I use it as a calling card more than a money maker but I do have a few affiliate accounts like Blue host.

So there you go a short overview of how I use the tips from this series. I did learn something while writing this series and it is why I am about a write another series. The lesson I learned is to have a plan. I laid out the different topics I wanted to write about for this series. That way each week it was easy for me to decide what I was going to write about. So if you are stuck then think of a series that has 4 or more parts and you just may be surprised.
