Update: Why I Blog the Way I Blog: The Method to My Madness

I thought it would be nice to provide a little updated information for those that are new to DBDO as we have added a few new followers and readers to the blog in the last couple of weeks AND my page strategy has changed a little.

What is Dream Big, Dream Often All About?

I focus our conversations around 4 basic topics, all of which have to do with personal development: living a healthy lifestyle, living an organized/goal oriented life, living debt-free and living a life of charity.  I call these the 4 Pillars of Successful Living.  I not only espouse these, I live them.

I focused on these 4 because my research revealed that these are the 4 basic areas that were common among people who considered themselves unsuccessful or under-achieving.

What Is the Posting Schedule on Dream Big?

Along with these 4 topics I believe in and use a 6-step formula for helping me to achieve any goal:

  1. determine what it is that you want and state it
  2. determine what you are willing to sacrifice to get what you want,
  3. develop a persistent attitude,
  4. have faith,
  5. develop organized planning and
  6. execute.

Because of this formula I will often discuss desire, developing persistence, having faith developing a plan, executing the plan and successful habits.

My posting schedule works as follows: I post A Few of My Random Thoughts each Monday followed up with a Healthy Living Updateon Tuesday mornings.  On Wednesday I post a Dream Big Original and follow that with Blogging Tips, Advice and Blog Strategy on Thursdays.  Friday-Sunday  I will post on topics within the niche of personal development.  Along with these posts I use memes, quotes, reblogs and articles shares to provide complimentary information for the days “theme.”

Each night at 6 pm est, I publish my Featured Blogger segment in which I feature 10 bloggers that have left a link to their page or post on my Let Me Share Your Page post.  I share as a way to give back to the blogging community.  This segment replaces my previous practice of reblogging.  I found that the reblogging had 2 negative impacts on my page: 1. it distracted from my overall message, and 2. it cluttered up people’s inboxes.

Lastly, on the 2nd and 4th weekend of every month I conduct a Meet and Greet which allows all bloggers the opportunity to leave a link on my page and meet and find new followers.  This is a great way for others to gain exposure for their page.

I don’t stray from this much so you can expect a post each morning at 6am est.

I hope this helps some of the new folks to understand my blogging strategy.  I believe every blogger needs to have some type of formula that works for them other than “build it and they will come.”
