Blog Redesign Part 2 (Blog Content)
Today I am going to talk about the topic of content for The Money Cult. As part of my re-design and planning process I want to make sure I cover a few things here. I want to better organize my topics and categories and tags. I explored this a little bit when I first started but could really come up with a good list so I just start writing and picking and defining them along the way and now I somewhat of a unorganized mess.
It seems that the post that tend to get a lot of attention are interviews and personal ones. I tend to share some blogging tips also not really sure if that is a good fit for the intent of this blog but I can talk though this and see if I can work it in. Ideally after I am done with this post I should have a better list of topic’s and categories that I can focus on or make sure I am writing content to fit within that. I am a big on streamlining processes so I hope to come up with some templates that I can use for posting which should help with creating consistent content faster.
I will first talk about what the purpose of this blog is so lets start with my tag line and some of my statements from my about me page.
A No B.S. Blog about money the tools and people trying to make it..
What’s This Blog About?
The Money Cult’s purpose is to be a bridge between Newbie’s and Guru’s in Internet Marketing. When I started out I found a lot of crap and lot of good stuff but I really wasn’t sure who to trust. I post about the good stuff and the good people I come across along my journey. I also post about my experiences, and progress, case studies and tools I use. My intent for this site is to provide a ton of value and offer a lot a free stuff so you don’t have to spend any money to learn the fundamentals of internet marketing.
If you look at my tag line and the paragraph above it seems I should be making sure whatever I am writing fits. I been pretty on target for the last couple months now that I reread this. I would like to do more guru reviews and newbie success stories. I need to make sure I am keeping the balance between my experiences and that stuff. I think you can really learn a find encouragement from someone that just started and is having some success. Those stories are the ones I like to tell. Those stories are the ones I like to read. If you have one of those stories and would like to share it please contact me and I can help you tell hit here.
What have I been Blogging About?
Now lets take a look thought my archive and see what I publish to date and what type of content I been providing and the response it has received.
If we look at my Categories I have the following Business, Getting Started, Internet Marketing, Personal, Product Reviews, Squidoo free (Needs to go), Tips and Advice.
Now for my Tags I have a larger mess I have a little too much detail here, I used names and details need to make this more generic.
Now I reviewed a few of my favorite blogs and their really doesn’t seem to be any sort of standard but I will take a look the the ones that from those blogs and the ones here that I think I should keep and come up with my final list for this step of my revamp The Money Cult project.
Blog Posting Frequency
Lastly lets talk about posting frequency. I know when I don’t post traffic goes down way down. It seem that 3 times a week is a great goal and keeps a steady flow of traffic coming in. Once in a while I might have some extra post. That would mean about 12-16 posts per month. I have been about to so 10-12 for the last 3 months so should be able to continue that. Ideally I should or could fine a way to make it easy for others to guess post relevant content this would help cut down of the hours I need to spend on writing. For some time I also wanted to do some guess post to help get my name out but haven’t made that happen yet.
Publish final Categories and Tag list.
