Themed Weekend: Blogging & Social Media

bloggingHave you ever wondered...

  • how to start a blog
  • how to get people to read (and comment on) your blog
  • how to decide between all of the crazy blogging conferences out there (and if they're worthwhile)

Well, you'll be in good company this weekend here at Metropolitan Mama.

I'll be rolling out a bunch of posts on topics related to blogging and social media. Of course, there will also be a few giveaways thrown in as well...including one particularly big contest that will help you blog (or read blogs, whatever the case may be). Stay tuned.

To kick things off, feel free to leave any blogging/social media-related questions you have on this post and I'll see if I can "slide" the answers into my series.

P.S. If you work for a PR agency or a corporate brand that is hoping to reach mom bloggers, I'll have some posts specifically geared to you too. I hope you'll join in the conversation.

  1. I've found that the tricky part of being involved with blogging and social media is explaining that it isn't a complete waste of time to my "real life" friends and family who are not interested in connecting with anyone they can't know in real life. That said, I love blogging, plan to continue and have dabbled in product reviews, social media and etc... and am looking forward to this series.

  2. I've been writing about blogging for a long time... if anyone needs help just let me know. You'll love to write about this topic Stephanie! Clicking my link will allow you to put video tutorials on your blog and let you see how to do everything in blogger and wordpress!

  3. I can't wait to read your thoughts on this topic! I'm constantly wondering if I'll be able to keep blogging with my return to work this fall. I'd love to find balance between working with PR and maintaining a personal voice.

  4. Looking forward to this one. Admittedly, my blog is just for kicks, and I plan to keep it that way. But, I am interested to know how bloggers turn their blogs into businesses. It's sort of a mystery to me.

  5. I have wondered...Since my blog is mostly sorta a journal. How do you save and/or print your blogs? I am not good with this stuff! I am looking forward to your posts!

  6. This is what I need. My blog only has a handful of readers and I really want to increase traffic and comments. I also want to make some money blogging - not a ton but a enough to make it worth my time. Thanks in advance for doing this. I hope by the end I will be able to increase traffic.

  7. gosh, since you asked. this is what I've been dying to know from other bloggers: How many blogs are in your reader? and how do you balance keeping up with a million other blogs, your own writing, and your adorable girls? ...and from your latest posts...your laundry too? somedays I just want to read everyone else's blogs and then remember I need to post too!
