Reading Roundup: What’s New in Blogging Lately?

Posted By Stacey Roberts 21st of May 2016 Blog News 0 Comments

Reading Roundup: What's new in blogging this week / ProBlogger.net

So I’ve been experimenting more with Facebook and to be honest I still can’t tell what will work and what won’t at the moment – everything I know has gone out the window! Stuff I think will do well totally flops and some other thing I forgot I scheduled has everyone buzzing. I cannot figure this out for the life of me!

Also the Instagram icon changed colours and everyone wigged out, and the chronological timeline disappeared with minimum fuss. Unless you fussed. Did you fuss? Does it bother you at all?

Anyway, here’s what I found this week that piqued my interest (and reminded me about stuff I had forgotten, which is a bonus!)

I get into so much of a rut sometimes I forget to see what new and exciting stuff everyone else is doing, so the links to email galleries and inspiration are super useful to me.

10 Examples of Great Disney Marketing Campaigns | Econsultancy

I spoke on a panel recently about working with online influencers, and one of the questions I was asked is what is exciting me about brands and bloggers working together – I replied that it was the unique and out-of-the-box campaigns I was seeing coming through nowadays. Some of them are so creative and so fun, and that’s what I think these marketing campaigns by Disney totally represent. I love the interactivity of them, and their difference to the same-old same-old marketing we’re all immune to.

  1. Hi Stacey,
    Wow Thanks for this list of awesome posts.

    I always love roundup posts, but I also know the amount of work that can go to get these gems hand-picked. So Kudos for doing that for us.

    I loved reading the entrepreneur article which had 17 tips from bloggers. The case study you mentioned here shows an error. I wonder if I am the only one who can’t access it, though.

    Thanks and have a great weekend. :)
