Promoting Your Blog & Promote Your Business

Promoting Your Blog & Promote Your Business

Promoting your blog, business and website in this social media world, today is crucial to succeed.
Then, I want to help YOU to conquer your goals!

Promoting Your Blog & Promote Your Business


I’m offering and opening my “closed” spam-fortress, well..with its own spam holes – only for this post!

In this case I’ll drop a bit, my own rules about human spam. As a social media – networking geek, I feel that I need to give and give even more to the blogging community.

On this post you can promote your blog or business, right here, right now.

I know that several new people will come here, you’re welcome! I expect some of you could be new readers, and eventually new online friends. Therefore, I want to do a tiny introduction about this blog and my person.

# What would you expect from this social blog? In a nutshell, this blog is about social media content, blogging tips and a bit of food-health connections.

The “logical” SEO rules dictate that the more technical-blogging-social themes should be separated of the more foodie-related, but I don’t want to have two blogs for the lack of time. But anyway, I permanent insist, again, that if you’re blogger (no matter the niche) you need to know more about social media and blogging.

If you’re a businessman, you necessitate even more being into the social media realm, in a clever way to have a return of your investment of resources in time, personal and money!

As you see social media and social networking is trendy, real and you can touch it at every second, everywhere.

# Now aboutΒ  me, personally, aside from those points I like, mentioned before, my way of thinking is quite non- conventional. Why?

When I was in my engineering-study state, I hit my mind against a concept-wall, once, twice and several times about connections, all and everything is connected in a way or other. Today this idea is part of me.

There are fusion cuisines and also there are fusions of ideas plus concepts to achieve certain goals.
Need examples that things can be connected in non – conventional ways? Here there are tangible bizarre-combos that were engineering-projects long time ago and today are completely live and real:

  • Mathematic model of a cow applied on computers = nowadays related to computerized farms, to boost the dairy production on rural environments
  • Radar technology directly associated to the kitchen = at present the glorious microwave oven
  • Mathematic models of human organs = today applicable on computers to bio-engineering and actual devices like PETs, MRIs, and so forth.


Now, I suppose that your mindset can be opened to see that ALL can be interlinked. And therefore, you can also notice why in my mind tech, food, and other things can be connected πŸ™‚

Enough related to me, it’s your turn! Now let’s cut to the chase, it’s time you write – Yes YOU!


Promoting Your Blog

Tell us from your heart deeply about you, shamelessly promote your blog or promote your business.

  1. Introduce yourself and give us a landscape of what you do
  2. Make an introduction of your blog / business / website
  3. Share your success, failures, doubts or frustrations on this social media world
  4. Tell us what you feel about blogging or social media and which are your social media strategies
  5. Have a social media marketing plan? Or you spend your social time aimlessly?

I really APPRECIATE if you can:

  • Leave comments on other posts you’ve found interesting, speak your mind.
  • Bookmark this post in your preferred social bookmaking sites
  • If you liked this backlinking love I give you, I love also that you spread the world on this post!

I’ll share this post on all my social sites, follow me also on my social channels and both we will gain more exposure πŸ™‚


Few Rules

I stress again my blog commenting & social networking policy and Yes, I need to put few rules, here there are:

  • Most of the comments without names (only keywords) in the name field, will be deleted.
  • Please, no links to adult sites, gambling, pharmacy (you have the idea) autoblogs or anonymous blogs.
  • The comment can be of any length (more descriptive and detailed it’ll be beneficial for all the readers) But it must be Unique and not Duplicated from other site.
  • You can put a link to your principal site(s) and social sites. Don’t spam me with tons of links inside, because you know the result πŸ˜‰


I’ve been playing with this idea for long time and I jumped into it, after read a similar concept by Ana, who I thanks.
Indeed, I’ll extend this especial-post model concept that I had on my mind, to other social sites.


My Duties

Keep notice that several new comments will be sent to moderation or eventually to the spam folder (I’ll try to rescue them as soon as possible) Also take notice that I’m not 24 hours online, so be patient!


Ready? Stretched and warmed your fingers? (Hey, I’m a runner need to warm muscles often πŸ˜‰

All right! 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0 Β Β Β  Go! Go to comments!

    The comment luv plugin is a great addition to the “blogosphere”. Props to the creator ! I also recommend livefyre, it’s pretty much the same thing.


      Yes comment luv plugin is great, but livefyre is a complete commenting system. Comment luv is just a superb multiplugin for WP πŸ™‚


    Thanks for the introduction.

    I am a newbie trying to rank my blog on chosen keywords. Although many of my niche website are on top 5 or 6 on 1st page of google, my site is not getting much traffic. It have great search volume and good cpc, but no conversion.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


      Sam it seems that you need to be more specific in your chosen keywords or the themes of your posts to have more conversion. Try adding more related keywords and call to actions on your desired hot zones, like click here, etc.
      Are people really interested on those keywords?

      Good luck!

    Hi Gera,

    I am definitely new in blogging. I have big difficulty to get traffic to my blog. I use wordpress, because it’s simple and easy to learn than other CMS like Joomla, Drupal etc.
    Right now, i don’t have any social account, like stumbleupon, digg or even twitter, so i can’t add twitter account here. Silly me..
    Maybe i should start to get social.
    Anyway, Thanks for your advice!



      Dave you can drive traffic to your blog leveraging your SEO and today also your social networking. More specific, with Google Plus that is primordial to be there after they are affecting results in searches by G+.

      Thanks for coming by!


    These days to promote your blog many techniques have been introduced but one thing which is very important is that the content should be useful for the readers so that they can visit it again and the other that it should be original otherwise visitors will not show interest.

    Good tips, its obvious that seo plays a big part getting people to our social networks. Being real and authentic is so key though. The spamming is what causes all the changes and problems with panda to begin with.


    Promoting of a blog or product is not that easy as I think. But if you can promote it nicely it is sure that you will get more sales.

    As I think you should build trust on your customers mind in online business since we never met our customers before, isn’t it?


    Ryan so true about spammers, is just simple to read a little the article and to put a coherent comment to be approved πŸ™‚
    Thanks for coming by!
