I was looking back at my post I wrote last year at this time to see if I stayed pretty much on course or drove off into the ditch. I was rather pleased that I did accomplish a pretty darn good bit of what I had set forth to do. I will admit that a few things went south but that’s the nature of the beast wouldn’t you agree?
Sometimes we find that things change and we either don’t want to keep doing what we “thought” we wanted or something sweet reared it’s head and we just had to go for it.
My Secret To Blogging Success Update
At the end of 2011 I wrote a post titled “My Secret To Blogging Success“. My blog had really had a very successful year and I wanted to share with my readers just exactly how I was able to achieve these results. I had no idea it would be so popular but I should have known. I’ve never read any post that was a play-by-play action plan sharing everything it takes to start getting your blog on the map.
That post still gets comments a year later and several people continue to follow what I shared. As we all know though, things change. Some methods don’t generate the same results they use to while a few other methods have much better results.
I’ve been asked to write an update a few times to share with you all what I’m doing now that I wasn’t doing back then. I’ve also had several people ask me to create a product around that but my goodness, I share so much stuff right here on my blog. Know what they said? They want it all in one place…step 1, step 2, step 3 and so on. Huh!!!
Since Kindle has become so popular I was thinking about possibly writing a Kindle book and do as others had suggested. You know, make it a step by step play book so to speak but as we all know, things will change. If I decided to go that route would this be something you’d be interested in? Since I’ve learned so much from what Steve Scott has been sharing with Kindle now, I would give it away to my readers first before Amazon kicked in and started charging for it.
I would love to know your thoughts on this. Should I or shouldn’t I? A follow up blog post or a Kindle book? Decisions, decisions, decision…
When Will She Create A Product
Oh, the product conversation again. Yikes!!! Is she or isn’t she, that’s the question.
The good news is that I will be creating my very own product this year. That’s right…you heard me. I’m going to do it but I need your help.
I’ve had a few suggestions on what type of product my readers would like to see from me but only a few so far. My question to you is out of all the information I have shared with you here on my blog, what type of product would you like to see from me? What would make you eager to spend your hard earned money? What information would you like to get your hands on? What can I help you with the most?
I am going to take your suggestions and this year I’m going to put that into place. You will be seeing a product from me this year for sure so get ready.
The good news is that you get to tell me exactly what you want.
My Consulting Business
I shared last June that I started accepting consulting clients. Yep, I love to give great information away for free and I will continue to do that here on my blog but a girl’s got to make a living.
Some people need more help then a comment can answer.
My business has started to really take off but I know I can help so many other people if they are just willing to reach out to me.
If you need help with blogging, getting traffic to your blog or building those relationships then I would love to work closer with you. Just be sure to visit my “Hire Adrienne” to get all the information and then let’s go from there.
My guest posts have been a pretty big hit and I get more and more people asking me all the time if they can write for my blog. Here’s the deal.
For now I’m going to continue accepting guest posts like I’ve done this past year. It’s by invitation only and you’ll only get invited if you have been reading my blog for a number of months consistently and are a regular commenter. I prefer supporting those bloggers who have given their time and energy to visit my blog on a regular basis and perhaps I can help them get more attention on themselves.
Beware though because I can smell a fink a mile away. For those of you who only want to hang around long enough to write a post for me you probably will never receive an invitation. That’s right, just because you hang out I will know if your intentions are good or not. Hey, I’m a Texan and I can smell bullsh*t a mile away.
Also, you have to write from the heart. You know what I share and you know I’m all about building relationships so I will never accept any posts that are written like an instructional manual. That won’t cut it here on my blog and it has to be helpful information my readers want to know about. You visit me all the time so you know what I’m talking about.
If you would like to receive an invitation from me then start commenting on a regular basis and keep it up. Share my posts and show me the love and I will definitely do the same in return. Remember though, you have to be here for the right reasons.
That Should Keep Me Busy
Okay, that might not seem like much but a Kindle book and/or follow up epic blog post along with my growing consulting business should keep me pretty darn busy. Yep, I put it out there so I have to do it now. That’s okay, I’m finally ready.
2013 is going to be exciting don’t you agree?
So what do you think, going to help me out? Leave me your comment and let me know what you really think I should do. I trust your opinion and as they always say, who better to ask then your already loyal readers.
I’ll look forward to reading your comments and I do hope you’ll share this post with your friends. The more the merrier right! ;-)
Happy New Year everyone…
