When I joined the Blogchatter community I didn’t know what to expect.
I did do the Daily chatter in 2016 July, but then it was just writing, reading, linking posts and sometimes sharing.It was disciplined writing.But no connection with other bloggers beyond their blogs.But still, I liked it.I didn’t know how much better it can be.So no complaints.
When I found the #MyFriendAlexa challenge (It’s due to be on from September 1st 2017:top secret )I was ready for more of the same stuff.
It was the best summer-camp-blogging experience ever.It’s like the ” Kuch Kuch Hota Hain ” types camp.Just online and blogging.I connected with a lot of people.But some have become dear friends who are now a part of my daily brainstorming routine.
Do you know the bloggers who participated in #MyFriendAlexa?
There’s Deepa of Kreativemommy.Dancer mother of two daughters, dietician, writer, blogger and one of the people who was around everyday chatting, helping and always reciprocating.I host a blog linky #MondayMommyMoments with her every Monday now.
Twinkling Tina our gorgeous food blogger and mommy of baby Bluey (love the name ).One of the first who answered my call for an interview.
Darling Dixita our hillstation reader.A friend and my Fiction teacher.
Mayura the super achiever who does everything with an infectious energy.
Bushra a doctor, our dewcool2 who writes about delectable desserts and mouthwatering dishes. A sweet heart.
Geetika our boisterous bee an economics teacher.
Shalini our soldier’s wife.
Priyanka another food blogger and Bengali to boot.
Roma always teaching by being the best example.
Ramya her posts on self-motivation made me want to try harder.
KalaRavi with a blog full of interior design tips.
Anindya another veteran blogger who is a celebrity in his own rights.Travel & food blogger with a style , that few can match.His blog has got some of a gorgeous pics.
And I am still waiting for his tips.He did say October.
Ashu who writes poetry.Mars a.k. a Masoom Jethwa a planetary scientist another poetry write and some of them are not in English.That had a steep learning curve.
Social Maharaj @Atul Maharaj who is always there to help .
Sumit , Anshul, and Abhi , Samjoth.
Hoping to get to know them better.
If I have missed people it’s because of Blogchatter.They made 2 different DM groups and these were the people who were in ours to chat, throughout the day.Encouraging each other.Pushing, encouraging, doing everything friends do.Plus we had fun.
What did I learn during MyFriendAlexa?
1) Learned patience ,persistence from blogger friends like Mayuri who has been blogging since 2004
2)Learned about poetry.Still scared of it.
3)Learned about storytelling.
4) Learned about writing every day.
Ultimately blogging is writing.Even when you right great posts you have to get it in font of your readers.If you are not into paid advertising then how do you do it?
All writer writes for herself/himself but also for their readers.So yes, you need eyeballs on your blog posts.
5)Learned you can still help,others even when you are learning.Sometimes being one step ahead ,you might have a view the others don’t.
6)If you have been helped you will always get a chance to pass it forward.Don’t miss out on this.
7)Made my blog the most important priority, after health and family.
Started writing more about mompreneurs and bloggers who were making a difference.That’s the ultimate aim of my blog.To help struggling mompreneurs who can’t spend money on advertising.
The great thing about these posts was they provided a little relief from the intense research I have to do before writing a health post.I still write 1 in-depth health post every week.Same frequency as before.But other days I try to write other contents to showcase mompreneurs or help them.
This way my Alexa improved.Since I had more fresh content.Traffic increased.
9)I posted at least 3 times a week.
In the last 2 weeks, I posted even more.
10)Followed rules of MyFriendAlexa.
11)Read at least 4 blogs.Mostly I did more.
12)Comment and share throughout the day.Mostly on Twitter .
13)Brainstormed with friends.
14)Started editing my old posts.
Daily chatter was great #MyFriendAlexa was out of this world.
