What to Do After Writing a New Blog Post?

If you want a successful blog there are many things you should be doing after writing a new post and below I will explain a few of the most important things you should do after every blog post you write.Doesn’t it always feel good to publish a new post on your home based business blog? I know I get a sense of accomplishment every time and I am sure you do too. But remember that when you’re done writing a new blog post, you still have some work to do. If you want a successful blog there are many things you should be doing after writing a new post and below I will explain a few of the most important things you should do after every blog post you write.1) Edit Your PostI know it may seem very obvious but the first thing you need to do when you finish a new blog post is edit it. Many people forget to do this and it can be detrimental to the success of your blog. Don’t publish your post until it has been completely edited and checked for spelling/grammar errors. Read over it carefully and make sure everything flows and that everything is written correctly. It doesn’t have to be perfect but you don’t want it to be full of errors either. You also want to make sure all your spelling and punctuation is correct. One good way to do this is to paste it into MS Word and run a spell check.2) Ping ItIf your blog does not automatically ping new posts then you need to manually do it after each post. Go to a site such as pingomatic or one of the many other “pinging” sites and ping your blog to let everyone know you have published a new post.3) Bookmark the PostThe next thing you want to do after you write a blog post is to bookmark it. There are a lot of social bookmarking sites on the internet that you can use to do this. Some of the best and most popular are Stumbleupon, Digg, Delicious, Mixx, and Reddit. Make sure you bookmark your post to at least a few of them.4) Tweet ItAfter you write a new blog post you should always “tweet” it. Twitter is really popular right now and it only takes a few seconds to tweet your followers about your post. This can give you extra traffic and maybe even a few people will retweet it or link to your post, which will help even more. So make sure you take a little time to tweet about your post whenever you publish a new one.Alright, that should be enough to get you started. Just remember that after you finish writing a blog post you aren’t done with the work. If you do the things listed above then you will have a much better shot at building a successful blog.

    Wow! I am a new blogger started January 21 2010, and this post is really helpful! I am going to apply it for sure. One thing I learned quickly is also to ask people to review it. On some social sites like FACEBOOK, when I see particular interest by a user, I ask them more about what they think and also, what their friends think. That kinda motivates the word of mouth. Thanks !

    These steps are kind of obvious but not many people think about it though. I have bookmarked this article as a little “reminder” for every new design I make, blog post I write and any other action I perform on the net. Thanks for pointing it out and giving me that extra “kick in the butt” whenever I need to spread the word about something.
