Hey friends, today we are talking blogging secrets. Who doesn’t love a good secret? I certainly do.
WHAT IS A BLOGGING SECRET?
My definition of a blogging secret is a super juicy tip to help with blogging that not many folks know about. I love finding these awesome tidbits because I’m all about trying new things and I get so excited when I learn a new secret to help me with:
- Building backlinks
- Growing traffic
- Increasing followers
- Boosting engagement
- Making more money
I do quite a bit of research on a daily basis to find new info to help me grow the blog. I’m going to share with you the top 5 places where I find blogging secrets.
Here we go…
WHERE TO FIND BLOGGING SECRETS
I turn online, of course. Most of my reading is from the Internet, including reading books but offline is a great place to learn new blogging tips as well. Networking, going to your public library, attending blog conferences, are all examples of offline activities to learn tips about blogging.
Here are my online resources:
Pinterest is so simple. You just type in your search term and wait for your page to load with hundreds of pins about that topic. I haven’t found one topic that hasn’t produced results.
Some terms I search:
- Income report
- Blogging tips
- Blogging secrets
- 100,000 Pageviews
- Increase traffic
- Growth hack
- Pinterest tips
- WordPress tips
- Make money online
- Blogging monetization
- Blogging newbie
When I find some good pins, I add them to the applicable board and that’s it! Follow me please, I appreciate the social media love, www.pinterest.com/dkcoffeeprosper
Yes, Google. I type all the terms I show above into Google and get a list of articles pertaining to the search topic. Google is pretty cool because I get DIFFERENT results than from Pinterest and a TON of authority blog articles, which is always super helpful.
I bookmark my favorite articles and move on to my next blogging secret tool. You can do this with any search engine, Bing, Yahoo, etc. Google just happens to be my favorite.
I have been a Quora expert for a while now. I love answering questions to spread my knowledge and expertise on certain topics. I recently realized that Quora is a great arsenal of information for tons of topics: growth hacking, SEO, wordpress tips, etc. It’s an incredible resource.
Speaking of Quora, it is an AMAZING resource for building traffic. I’ve talked about it before but it’s worth mentioning again. Every single time I answer questions on Quora, I get a noticeable uptick in traffic. Noticeable!
It’s so easy to create an account and answer questions within your expertise. Just add in your latest post in your signature when you answer questions and instant traffic! Give it a try and let us know how it worked for you (in comments).
What I love about groups on Facebook is the openness everyone shows and the ability to throw just about any question about there and get it answered.
I belong to at least 35 groups in Facebook about Ecommerce, Shopify, blogger engagement, loop giveaways, and much more.

YOUR FAVORITE BLOGS
Last but not least, I turn to my favorite blogs to get the skinny on what’s happening along with new and exciting tools and ways to grow the blog. Some of my favorites:
- Real Ways to Earn Money Online
- Twins Mommy
- Making Sense of Cents
- Helene Inbetween
- It Starts with Coffee
I read blogs daily so I don’t consider it work at all when I find a great new resource from the blog article.
That wraps things up! What blogging secret can you share?
