"BlogTalking" Resolutions & New Social Media For Bloggers

When Ever a New Year Begins I create Blogging Bucket List for 2013 "BlogTalking"


"Something New For 2013"

For me, my blogging treks have taken me far and wide and because we have road blocks that get in our way (Like Facebook with all their rules (they seem to write when convenient for them to get traffic to FB) I will be looking for new avenues to spread myself out through other venues and social media. So with that said theses are some of the ways that I would like to share with my fellow bloggers.

First, new Social Media I would like to share that I have found, signed up and have been using;

1) Rebel Mouse I wrote about him last week and have found new bloggers to connect with
check out my previous post Click Here and with Rebel Mouse you can create a page/community on your blog to see all your posts to promote from Check Mine Here

2) Sverve 
Your a mom your busy and you spend a lot of time posting your blog content as your know as an influencer and Sverve gives you a platform.  As a blogger to connect with brands and marketers would like to connect with thats why Sverve gives you a platform to highlight your areas of expertise and earn the credit you deserve. And with 3.9 Mom Blogger you need other ways to get your content noticed.  Sverve Website

Here's how:

  • Simply add up to 5 areas of influence on your profile
  • Ask your followers to endorse you
  • Share quality information on the Sverve platform like your latest blog posts and best tips
  • Share frequently Sverve Website
Klout: And for other resolutions I intend to do to broaden my social reach I am going to:
Visit Klout each day for a few minutes, find, connect and follow and give Klout to raise my score, as I was recently informed by a company I was talking to for a product review that they are now asking for Klout scores in job interviews, I said, what, and he said that if you dont have a score they would not hire, go figure that something like this could make the difference in getting hired or turned down. So I figure this also is true when applying for product reviews.

Google+: So with all social media we have to continually to add, follow and promote, so it is my challenge that each day I try and add some new people to follow and connect with.

Twitter: Again we know that in order to get our content our there we need to continue to build these numbers, retweet and connect and when you follow let them know you are a new follower. 

Blogger.com Blogger.com is alot like Networked blogs, however, there is more interaction with the actual followers and with many categories to choose from so you can narrow your search to bloggers in your niche and you can choose countries.  Once you signup and add your blog, tags that pertain it appears in a screen shot for other bloggers  You can write comments and interact, follow blogs without leaving the site, vote on content and meet bloggers all over the world. This can all be done without leaving the site, much easier than Google Friends or Networked blogs.

(Blogger Resources) Blog Planning for 2013 (Printable Planner)

Blog Planners for 2013

Photo from MamJenns Blogs

If you have ever wondered how to keep all your blogging straight then I have one solution.

Last year I found a printable planner that is free and has had new options added for this coming year. Jennifer says some improvements. So I wanted to share with my fellow bloggers as a "resource for bloggers".

It is 50 pages in a PDF form, offers a "monthly blog calendar", "monthly planning", "blog giveaways", and a place for "notes".  She has also added some new bonus features such as "year at a glance", "monthly blog stats" and "future blog ides".
"This proves as an invaluable tool for bloggers". 
You can check out her blog and find the planner to print at Mama Jenns so hope on over and let her know that Karren Haller sent you please! And if you like these kinds of blogger resource ideas, kindly let me know in a comment :) And Retweet too please................

She also has and you can check out these other printable documents

If Your A Blogger Please Read About Facebook Changes

I received notice about not adding Facebook Likes to events/contests any more, so I wanted my readers to be aware. I am starting to receive notices from events that I have signed up to change a Facebook Like to another choice, so watch for those.

I have also come upon these to Slideshare presentations that you might find helpful. Let me know what your thoughts are on changes. Very frustating to me and others.
If you are a blogger
If you enter giveaways
This is a must read.
Bloggers doing giveaway will no longer be allowed to put their Facebook Fan page on a host page for likes.
This means: We will have to use Twitter, Pinterest, Picket Fence and YouTube instead.
FANS: There is NOTHING we can do about this. Facebook is placing holds on bloggers accounts.
Please read the following: A blogger received this email from Facebook.
It appears that a significant number of the “Likes” or “Subscriptions” to your Page may have been obtained in violation of our terms. This is a result of your participation in gaining likes in an inauthentic manner. Gaining likes by placing the like button on like-farms is not legal. We have found you to be doing the same at and other sites. Likes have to be authentic and users should not be forced to like a page. In order to address this issue, we have taken the steps necessary to remove these Likes or Subscriptions and have placed a temporary restriction on your page to gain external likes for 30 days. Make sure you make the changes within this duration. This decision is final and cannot be appealed.

Time For Leftover Recipes After Christmas

One of my favorite treats at Mimi's is Quiche here is a idea for leftover Christmas ham....
this recipe is from Taste of Home.com




I thought I would hunt for some fun recipes on my favorite site....Pinterest!! 
I love Quiche (actually anything in a crust) and when I found this one, where I will need to use up extra ham I thought this would work.
