A blog schedule is to help you be more productive and to get more out of your blog – don’t let it cramp your style or set you back! Use it as a tool for advancement and greater success in what you’re already doing. The schedule is yours and yours alone to change and edit over time – at the end of the day you have to live with it!
You can read all the blogging advice in the world, but none of it matters unless you take action. To set your blog up to be a massive success, you have to ruthlessly focus your efforts on things that work, and stop spending precious time on things that don’t.
You could know all the “tricks” in writing great blog content and still be a terrible writer and have all of it go to terrible waste! We must all continue to master our skill of writing constantly!

An “evergreen” post is a blog post that is one of your better posts that is so well crafted that it becomes one of the most significant and high-trafficked blog posts for your blog.
When it comes to commenting, the obvious bonus of using this system is that you get alerted to when your favorite site has a new post. That way, if you are trying to get in that first commenter spot, you have a better chance of doing so by jumping on the post when it goes live.

Ever wondered how you could add a spiffy Contact Form to your website? I’ve got an easy tutorial to share with you! It’s what I used and I love it! It makes contacting me from my website, easy, fast, and secure. Just follow these easy steps.
The survey form also got good reviews from my readers, who have commented both that they like it because it’s easier to enter and that they like it because then actual comments or questions on the post don’t get buried, and real conversation can happen.
Today I offer you the guide I wish I’d had back then: an A to Z of the absolute essentials of copywriting — plus a good bit of further reading for each.
