7 Things you should do to every blog post after you hit Publish

  1. Repurposing content is not something I’ve done before. Thank you for the advice, I hope it saves me time!

    • Emily says:

      Glad you found this helpful, Jaime! Repurposing definitely saves a ton of time when posting and marketing on multiple social media accounts!

  2. Jeanelle says:

    These are things I normally do except for the cut up one. Thus I will add to my list. Thanks.

  3. Great standard tips for beginners!

  4. Wow! I am just beginning to realize all there is to learn re: blogging Thank you for this list!

  5. Lauren says:

    Great! This is super helpful! Glad to see I’m on track with most of it!

  6. Tabbie says:

    Great tips! I need to be better at comment replies!

    • Emily says:

      Thank you, Tabbie! Commenting to replies can become overwhelming but I try to reply at least once a day so I get too far behind!

  7. Joe says:

    This is such great advice. As a new blogger, this is a valuable lesson. Thank you!

  8. Whitney says:

    I just followed the Facebook groups you mentioned, loved the post. Thank you!

  9. Lisa says:

    I have some work to do….. πŸ™‚

    • Emily says:

      Just pick one or two things that you really need to work on and put your focus on that. Trying to do everything at once can become overwhelming, so just take it one step at a time!

  10. I do most of these regularly but never thought of cutting up – great advice!

  11. Candy says:

    I need to get better about emailing my subscribers. These are great tips to maintain a consistent blog. I found sharing strategically goes a long way.

    • Emily says:

      Thank you, Candy! I completely agree, a consistent and strategic strategy will go further than anything else!

  12. Kate Andrews says:

    I’ve pinned this to my blog resources board and I’m printing it out as a checklist to follow after I post! Thank you!

  13. These are such great tips!! I need to focus on repurposing my content πŸ™‚ Thanks!

  14. Janet says:

    I’m a brand new blogger and I’m pretty much following everything on your list but still not getting a lot of traffic through these mediums πŸ™

    • Emily says:

      I’m sorry to hear you’re not seeing the traffic that you want, Janet. Of course, there are many different factors that play into how much traffic a blog will get, niche, aesthetics of a blog, what you are writing about, SEO, etc. That being said, there are no “quick fixes” to blog traffic and if you are brand new it can take a few weeks or months to really begin seeing traffic. The best thing you can do for your blog is to focus on one thing at a time. If traffic is your goal, focus on one medium and really dive into how to drive traffic via that medium and be consistent for a few months. If you’re still not getting traffic, dive back into your blog and see if you can make it more “traffic friendly”. Can you add more keywords? Can you make longer blog posts? Hopefully these tips helped a bit!

  15. Jalisa says:

    These are all great tips even for seasoned bloggers.

  16. Thanks, this is amazing, just what I need to know how to better use social media to promote. I am pretty new to all this so I was wondering, what is a facebook feed?

    • Emily says:

      That’s great, Amanda!! Glad this was a big help to you! A Facebook feed or a “thread” as I talked about in the post is when you join a Facebook group and they have certain promo days, so certain days you can participate in promoting your blog or your Pinterest or your social media accounts. A Facebook thread is just the picture that is posted letting you know about the promo day and then everyone comments their blog link or their social media links. I hope that helped clear that up a bit!

  17. One more question, you talked about creating images on canva, what is that?

    • Emily says:

      Yes! I love Canva! is a free website that you can sign up for to create different images for your social media accounts. They have different templates you can choose from depending on the social media account you are making graphics for. I use it mostly for Pinterest because they have a really easy to use Pinterest template! I’d recommend heading over to and checking it out!

  18. Thank you so much for this post. I am a new blogger- about 6 months in. I always appreciate any tips and tricks of the trade I stumble upon. Great advice!

    • Emily says:

      You’re welcome, Brittney! I’m so glad you found this post helpful!! That’s fantastic! I hope you are really enjoying blogging! Thank you so much!

  19. Awesome list! I do most of these things. However, I am horrible at replying to comments, though I read and appreciate every one of them. I will have to work on it!

    • Emily says:

      Thank you, Lisa! It can be hard to comment back to every single comment at first but what I try to do is create set hours when I reply to comments so that I don’t miss any and can try to respond back in a timely manner!

  20. jessica says:

    i’ve never thought to cut up and repurpose the content, great idea! thanks for the inspo (:

    • Emily says:

      Repurposing and reusing content is so helpful and saves a ton of time! I love it! Thank you, Jessica!

  21. Deborah says:

    Oh I love these and of course he repurposing tip.

  22. GiGi Eats says:

    I’ve been blogging for 6 years and since day one I have done all of this – PHEW! I am doing something right, LOL!

  23. Great post! Repurposing my content is something I don’t really do that much. I want to start taking pieces of posts and elaborating so that I can go into more depth and also interlink them.

    • Emily says:

      Thank you, Catherine! Yes exactly! It’s super helpful and this way you’ll never run out of content ideas which saves so much time!

  24. Gwen Gibson says:

    Easy to follow and understand. Thanks!

  25. Linsey says:

    I have just recently started to repurpose my content and it’s an incredibly easy way to get traffic to your blog. As I also have a full time job so I’m always on the lookout for content and traffic hacks! Turning an email into a more detailed blog post is a quick and easy way to produce more content. Great post!

    • Emily says:

      Thank you, Linsey! Yes!! Repurposing is seriously such a time saver especially when you work another job on top of blogging!

  26. thanks for sharing this resourceful list! I believe if all bloggers just stay consistent on these channels they will be able to succeeed.

    One thing which I would add is to use your current posts and knowledge to answer questions on quora and reddit. This is actually really helpful and will help you build a strong follwership

    • Emily says:

      Thank you! Yes, you’re very right! Quora and Reddit are two really great places to also share knowledge and build a following as well as show you are knowledgeable in your niche! Thank you!

  27. Dawn says:

    Hi Emily,
    I saw your face in DTC the other day and just happen to come across your post on Pinterest! I need to start repurposing my content and get more active on Quora.
    This is a great post and since you’re a fellow DTC member I’m going to share it to all my group boards!

    • Emily says:

      Hey, Dawn!

      Oh wow, that’s so cool that you’re part of DTC too! Dare to conquer was the best thing that ever happened to me. Thank you so much for stopping, leaving a comment and for sharing my post! I’m heading over to your blog as well.
