  1. That was a decent infographic. It’s always nice to have some understanding on what to do after posting a new blog article. Thanks for sharing it with us. I use to do a lot more marketing but now it’s all about engaging on Blog Engage rather than blogging.

    1. Bbrian? wow, welcome Here 🙂 so glad to see you here, and about engaging our readers, it’s the best way to keep them coming for more. and i must say you did wonders by introducing Blogengage, awesome communities for bloggers to promote their blog posts.

  2. Commenting is huge bro. No better way to drive steady traffic to your blog. Shout out you message. Spread the word. Hitting the publish button is the first step in our journey 😉

    Thanks Ish!

    1. And bloggers must always hit the publish button before doing any promotion! lol.. i love the word you used here “our Journey, ” lol, blogging is really about thinking ahead of the Herd.

  3. wow, i love the infographic since giving information to one’s audience does not have to be a dull moment. illustrations that presented in an infographic makes any article interesting. i also post infographics on my site

    i use Bit.ly in shortening services since it offers how many clicks are made

    1. Bit.ly is always one of the BEST FREE shortening service today and since they offer clicks/analytics, most people prefer them, although i won’t rule out goo.gl.

      They’re also good.

  4. These are some great tips that you share. I was stuck with this question as well when I started blogging. I am still in the process of finding more groups to post in for syndication. This really helps. Thanks for sharing.

  5. This is perfect. Often times I’ve seen bloggers just write, and publish and walk away. There is more work involved after you click on the publish button. Great write up my friend!
