Blog post topic attraction, at least for this introvert, is becoming more difficult to narrow down.
My first test, “to read or not to read” is the title. What you find in this week’s blog post roundup is:
– prioritizing tips for bloggers,
– growing your blog’s reach
– how to work with a team of introverts
– humor for any type personality preference, but women more than men (I think!)
– an editing tool for any author
Here you are:
5 Top Weekly Blog posts, week 15, from #Introvert Inspirer
Blogging and Social Media
How the Hell do I Prioritize Work, Blog & Find Balance?
The premise is that either I have some magical solutions that allow me to produce a lot of content or I’m super human.
My note: the author says he is spilling the beans on his secrets. The bottom line is one word – can you spot it?
5 Ways to Extend Your Blog’s Reach and Grow Your Audience
You may not be a superstar with a giant audience. So how can a person with a relatively small following generate big buzz over a new post? Follow these five tips.
My note: It is a 2×4 hit on the head for me. What about you? Do you act on any of the tips?
Introverts and Extroverts
Help! I’m an Extrovert Managing a Team of Introverts
If you’re an extroverted manager, you might find yourself mystified by your more introverted staff members: They don’t want to do workplace social events, they’d rather not team-build, and they stay in their offices all day. How are you supposed to create a cohesive team when everyone’s acting like a hermit?
The strange reality is that there’s a default in American workplace culture to assume extroversion. But some of the management practices that work beautifully with extroverts can go over like a lead balloon with introverts – which means that you should be particularly thoughtful about how you manage your introverts.
Here are some secrets to winning over the hearts of introverts, even if their style is different from what feels natural to you.
My note: In particular it was encouraging to know that ice-breaking activities get little attention or fanfare.
Men Can Fix Anything
This will appeal to introvert and extrovert alike. If you’re a guy you probably won’t want to fess up, “I’ve done that!” and if you’re a woman, married or not, you’re going to laugh your butt off.
Forced to Self-Edit? This Tool May Be Your New Best Friend
Every writer needs an editor. If you want to be taken seriously as an author, there’s just no way around it. A good editor will strengthen your work and find the errors that you’re too close to see. I’ve spent years editing other authors and still have little chance of catching my own mistakes.
But there are many times when it’s not practical or possible to access an editor, proofreader or second set of eyeballs on short notice. This is especially true for authors who are blogging!
My note: Jacqueline Gum recommended attending the Pubsense 2015 Summit. Totally worth it, and where I learned about this tool. Tested their free version and then upgraded. But, I do not use it for the content in the weekly round-up posts since the intros provided are the bloggers content not mine.
