NEPA BlogCon Blog Series: 10 Steps (& 10 Months) to a Better Blog

Greetings, squirrels! We’re zipping along with planning both Squirrel Girls Tech Camp and NEPA BlogCon 2015, but before we launch into those, we wanted to do something special for all of you.

Over the years, we’ve collected surveys and feedback from you, our attendees, on how we can make our conference better. One of the things we saw come up over and over again was the desire to learn more about blogging before meeting up with us each fall.

So, to get you ready for this year’s event (and your own blogging superstardom!), we’ll be doing a monthly round up of resources, tools, tips, and tactics. Want to start your first blog? Better the one you already have? This monthly series is for you!

Over the next 10 months, we’ll focus on a different step to build a better blog. 10 months. 10 steps. Easy peasy!

Looking for ways to save time and frustration on coming up with topics? Need help with analytics? Want to know more about building a community online? Check back each month to see the round ups.

The posts will be curated by our friend, Chris Barrows. If you haven’t gotten to meet him in person yet, be sure to connect with him on Twitter, Facebook, or any of his other channels (you can see a full list on his site). Chris is a Social and Mobile Coordinator at NYU, the co-host of #JVMChat (1:00 p.m. EST every other Tuesday on Twitter), and is currently up for a Shorty Award for his podcast, Why I Social (a must-listen!).

Stay tuned for his first post and the first one in our series! Have an idea for a blog post you’d love to see on the NEPA BlogCon Blog? Leave us a comment or feel free to submit a pitch for your own guest post or series!
