Blog Organization, Social Media, etc.

Okay, so it's now past the first week of January, and my blog organizing ideas have not gone as planned.  I've downloaded a bazillion super cute Blog Planner pages, but I've done nothing with them...  That's not actually true, I have written on some in pretty much the same way I would a piece of notebook paper or a large sticky note.  I can't decide exactly what I need in a Blog Planner, but I found many that are FREE!  You can find them  hereherehereherehere and here.  Many of these planners have unique features and I think you'll find one you like.  (When you find the perfectone for me, please send it along with a personal assistant.)  You can see each of these planners (and lots more!) on my "e-learning" board on Pinterest.  Check it out...

Here's other things I've done to organize my blogging life

1. I have tried to link up to blog hops and linkies each day and have concentrated on building up my Google + following.  I want to really utilize Google + more efficiently and have recently increased my peeps by 100.  You will find the blog hops and link ups I frequent here and a blog that explains blog hops and linky parties here.

2. I've pinned many more of the great blog posts that I read from daily blog hops/linkies to my e-learningparentingeducation and children boards on Pinterest.  I try to also comment on these posts.  My Pinterest pinning is linked to my Twitter account, so whatever I have pinned gets tweeted out.

3. I updated my profile and blogging statistics on places like Sverve.  I needed to do that because my stats had (happily) increased by over 200.  I think a monthly stat/profile update would be very beneficial.

4.  I have been a guest blogger.  You can read my guest post here.  If  you haven't been a guest blogger on someone else's website, you should give it a try.  I really like how Michelle over at MaMade Diaries begins the guest post with her own reflection.

5. I have reached out to other bloggers for guest posting opportunities. Although I now have a "Guest Bloggers" page on my website where people may sign up for guest blogging, I didn't at the time and just sent bloggers Facebook  messages if I was interested in them doing a guest post.

Well, that's what I've been working on lately.  How is your blogging life going?  If you have any blog/social media organizing tips for me, please feel free to leave them in the comments!
