IBlog Magazine Feature : The Secret Ingredients for a Successful Site

Title Posted by Deborah (at) dvdInteriorDesign Posted in Interior Design, Interior Design business, Blogging, Social Media Influencers and Social Communities, Social Media Professional

Here it is! I am so excited to share with you an article I recently penned for one of my favorite Blogging resources, iBlog magazine.  In this article, I shared my approach to creating and maintaining community as Editor of BlissfullyDomestic.com,  a community of over 10K email subscribers and up to 410k UMV readers. 

Add your email and receive updates on insider resources and tips for creating a Happy Home. 

A Community is King and Collaboration is Queen 

You can't be afraid to ask for help.  It is your friends and your community that will become your best resource for growth and focus.  The most exciting moments come from collaboration.  Attending a conference, and blog tour or participating in an online community is must have for bloggers. Knowing that there is someone who is working on the same questions and struggles as you.  As I grow in my business, these are the relationships have given me moments of strength and insight to continue with my online presence while also managing a design business.  

While this is an article about creating community it is also the story of creating a profitable site.   The keyword is engagement. You cannot have one without the other.

The message is to switch from focusing on getting the traffic to your blog.  You need to focus on creating a community with your social networks to engage with readers and peers to build community. 

"ENGAGEMENT is the new game.  Google likes it, Facebook likes it and soon sponsors will not just ask for your following numbers, they will also ask for your engagement numbers on each platform. "
