I have already publicized my personal new years resolutions – to lose weight and produce a lot of pages on some major projects that I committed to (and to tweet a report of my weekly pages typed and weight lost every Weds morning…)
Every blogger should have resolutions also. My blogging resolutions for 2013 are:
- Figure out Reddit and how active I want to be,
- Figure out Triberr and whether I should participate,
- Post every Tuesday (minimum) on this blog, and
- Figure out what to do with my other blog, servicecocreation.com.
I signed up for Reddit two weeks ago and installed the button on my blog, but really haven’t explored it yet. My typical daily hits pattern on this blog (which still lags the older one) is to have 150-250 hits on the day of a new post and the following two days and then go down to 10 per day or less on Sunday and Monday before a new post. Sunday night, with only 5 hits for the day, I experimented with hitting the Reddit button on two recent posts – A presentation lasts FOREVER and Would you trust your daughter’s beach pics to Zuck. I had over 200 hits in 24 hours. No new comments, but presumably new readers. Reddit has my attention.
I have noticed my two favorite bloggers, Mark Schaefer and Cheryl Burgess are using Triberr. I couple weeks ago I read and interesting article describing Triberr as the bloggers best kept secret. Triberr would also seem to merit attention!
The need to post at minimum weekly is obvious. As is the need to figure out what to do with my two blogs (and another I have been considering). I may be back to my readers for suggestions on that…
Anything else that belongs on my blogging resolutions???
Food for thought (or more precisely, areas for me to explore as well). Thanks for the great post!
Agree. Triberr can be a valuable community for deserving bloggers. Let me know if you need some help with that but it is fairly easy to understand. But at the end of the day, the content is the engine that fuels blogging success. The social web really does reward good work. When I publish something that I know is original and exceptional, I may get 5X the number of social shares on that post. Now that’s feedback! Thanks for the shout-out!
Thanks! Great to hear from another blogger in education…
I agree that content is number 1. My highest priority is to have at least one good post weekly. But I am intrigued with the new sites also.
Thnx for the shout out, Gary. You’re in good hands with Mark, but if you need some additional help with Triberr, gimme a yell 🙂

You may hear from me…
Thanks for reaching out!
Let me know how this works out for you. I have been on Triberr for a few months now and either I”m missing something or no one likes me enough to put in their tribe 😉 because I have yet to see the WOW that everyone else has. As for Reddit – are you pushing the button on your own post once a day?
I have pushed the button when I posted on Reddit. I really don’t know how it works. Two of my posts seemed to get a lot of hits from there, two didn’t. And I haven’t yet done anything on Triberr beyond joining…
Let’s continue to share notes!
