We've always been big into sharing and communicating with our friends, fans, and customers. We've done it on Facebook, we've done it on Google+, we've been all over social media. But our dirty secret was that we just HATED the layout of our old blog. It was so plain vanilla and boring and ugly. Ick. So even though we created content like madwomen, we never owned it. Well, as you can see, we're changing our ways. BIG TIME.
And it is paying off already. We're seeing SEO benefits already from planting our flag in our blog, first and foremost. We're going to own our content and THEN share to social media. We're keeping our hard work under our own banner. And we see so many other photographers struggling with blogging. We want to help.
So we are instituting a weekly BLOG LOVE.
Here are the rules to participate, and we think it will be a win/win:
1) Come here and find the weekly BLOG LOVE post. We are planning to host it every THURSDAY.
2) Comment on that post with a link to your blog, and more specifically, a session you would love some blog loving on.
3) Check out others and leave some comments and love for them and others should do the same.
4) We will scan through the blogs and pick our top 5 images each week that we want to showcase.
5) We will then link those images up on our site with our reasons for LOVING them and links back to the winning blogs.
This will help us all find new and inspiring blogs to follow AND getting links to your blog shared here is GREAT for SEO for YOU! It will help your Google ranking and that will help your clients find you better when they are looking for you. We want to help! We want to inspire you to get in there and own your content and blog more. So let's do this as a group!
Also, if you write up any blog posts featuring us or our actions, PLEASE link us and let us know! We would LOVE to link up to your blog with that feature too and help drive your SEO even further. We are all about trying to help you, and if you're writing about US...then we especially want to make sure you feel our love.
So, by linking up on this inaugural post, please be aware that if you are chosen, we will be picking one of your images to share on our site (watermarked of course) and we will obviously be linking back to you and giving you all the credit. We hope you're ok with this!
Allllrighty then! Let's do this thing! Let's reclaim our content and love on our blogs. xoxoxox
