  1. Become a better writer at headlines- This is a difficult one for me, but I am working on it.
    I have been using google alerts as a research tool to generate content and I am commenting on your blog right now. I’ll keep practicing.
    Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

  2. Thanks for your tips! I try to keep up with some of the points mentioned above, but not all. I keep my editorial calendar in a simple excel sheet, helping me to keep track not only of the headlines but also if I have a source for my images, if the posts contains links and where they go and if the posts belongs to a series. I also do publish my posts on Twitter, try to answer my comments in reasonable time and comment on other blogs (even if I don’t manage so many as I’d like to). As a mother to small children, part-time worker and a blogger (serious about making my blog a success), there’s so much to do and so little time. I will be pleased if you’d write something about time management. Thanks again!
