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

So much to discuss this week, but I’ve put Seth’s post first because I really think he’s hit the nail on the head: with promotion of our blogs getting harder to do on social media thanks to algorithms and whatnot, why not go to the source? Let’s read more blogs and engage with them, instead of mindlessly scrolling through whatever social network platform app you happen to have open.

  1. Social blogging is a concept that I’ve never heard before, not sure if its going to take off or not. Interested to see how it develops. Would Tumblr be considered “social blogging” 1.0? It kind of has features of both I think.

  2. Hi Stacey

    A good round up again.

    I would love If you could also include some advanced SEO articles in your round ups. Just a thought.

    • Hi Tauseef, thanks for your feedback!

      I do try to always include SEO tips, and although our blog focuses more on the beginner blogger, I often link to intermediate and advanced SEO advice when I can. I hope the next roundup is more useful to you :)
