Hi Anil,

First, Congratulations !

The first cut looks quite impressive. Informative and I am sure if this remains this way, this blog is going to fetch you more satisfaction in every respect.
Once a week is a good schedule to start with., especially when you have other blogs as well. For me, it’s difficult to manage even one !

I have already subscribed to it, you know I have become a great fan of your writings. But can’t comment on all your posts. :P

Hi Nisha,

Thank you very much! I’m glad you like this initial set of content. I hope the make each post informative and as useful as possible. I debated a while between once a week or twice a month but felt I had so much material and didn’t want to leave the site hanging for too long that I landed one the Friday schedule.

I’ve also got one (last for a while) blog coming out next week so didn’t want to completely overwhelm myself!

I appreciate you subscribing and following along, and of course any comments you leave – certainly doesn’t have to be on every post!!

I got a blog too (about art), so I know how hard it can be to make your blog attractive among the hundreds of related blogs. Thanks for these tips, they will come in handy.

Hi, Anil. I just discovered your travel advice blog and this article is just perfect as I was planning to start my own local travel advice blog. Your article on “How To Keep Your Travel Blog Going” by sticking to a schedule and regular posting is spot on and quite inspirational for me. Your advice to “connect” rather than promote when using social media makes complete sense to me. Thanks for sharing these great articles to fledgling travel bloggers like me.

This is great information Anil. I’ve been building a (sort of travel) blog on my spare time. It’s mostly about where I live and for people visiting. But, I am always getting stuck. Finding your website has helped out a lot!

Thank you!

Thanks Anil! So just wondering… how do you find the time to keep up your blog? I have a hard time finding time to write. Just wondering…

A good schedule helps and it’s essential to prioritize your writing so you have a steady stream of ideas coming. Of course, it’s slightly easier for me since blogging is my job ;)

Anil you do a great job of keeping up good content across your blogs. It’s hard to keep up with multiple blogs! Not quite sure how you do it!

I often wonder myself ;) thanks!

So what’s good marketing advice? How to break out of a couple of hundred visits per day?

Reply

Anil Polat March 19, 2014 at 10:54

That’s a big question and a lot like a chef asking how to make their restaurant popular. I would suggest setting small, incremental and concrete goals but the spark to success you’ll find through failure. Experiment often, learn from your mistakes, and be flexible in the face of results.

Hi Michael,

I strongly recommend All In One SEO for indexing – but I think you’ve already found that post! Let me know though if you have any questions :)
