Thirteen Ideas to Grow Your Blog

It’s no secret that every blogger likes an audience.  I’m no different.  So, this week, while talking with Jazz and Anna I’ve thought of different ideas of how I could grow this one—let me know what you think.

  1. Post frequently – A given since people don’t like to read a blog that doesn’t have new content.
  2. Have a different writer– This I’ve accomplished with adding Jazz.
  3. Run a Contest – Thought of this before…  Anyone want a contest where you could win the next VeggieTales video when it comes out next month?
  4. Poll Questions – Ask a question…
  5. Pretend to be in a fictional place and write from there.
  6. Discuss what VeggieTales characters would play a part in another fictional series.
  7. Have a VeggieTales Photoshop contest.
  8. Enter many Thursday Thirteens.
  9. Write more VeggieTales video reviews.
  10. Comment on other’s blogs.
  11. Join a VeggieTales newsletter.
  12. Buy Big Idea – Did you hear it was for sale.
  13. Advertise.

TT, Does That Stand for Talking Tomatoes?

Ok, Peter Plum, you won last week… I didn’t have a case of beginner’s luck, nor did I really know what I was doing  ; )  next time just might be different, so watch out!  Although, I think my list of thirteen things was a little better than reading about why veggies don’t blog, you didn’t even mention the fact that it’s hard to type without hands!!!

And in case you were curious, for my birthday, I ended up doing several of the things on my list.  I went to the mall, spent time with my family, opened a few cards, slept in, realized I was a year older, and avoided the scale, dishes, and laundry ;  )  Oh, and I had ice cream cake!!!

 

….If a squash can make you smile; you’re in the right place…

Thursday Thirteen

As Peter Plum has already mentioned, I’m new at blogging, actually, he’s the one who got me into it….  But here is one of my attempts at blogging about something interesting.  Peter challenged me to the Thursday Thirteen, and June 12th happens to be my birthday; I’ve been trying to think of something to do, so here are 13 things to do on your birthday:

  1. Go to the mall
  2. Avoid the singers on the phone
  3. Eat birthday cake (ice cream is optional, but a good choice)
  4. Realize you’re a year older
  5. Try to get away with anything crazy since it’s the one day you might be allowed to
  6. Stay away from the scale, dishes, and laundry (they can wait, can’t they?)
  7. Spend time with friends and family
  8. Open presents/ gift cards
  9. Sleep in, but not too late, you don’t want to miss your day
  10. Treat yourself to something you wouldn’t ordinarily do or buy
  11. Get your hair, nails, and make up done (if you’re a girl)
  12. Watch your favorite movie
  13. Go to an amusement park, water park, or museum

 

Well, there are many other things that could be done, but that’s just a small list…  Hope you enjoy your birthday!!
