Posted By Stacey Roberts 28th of August 2015 Blog News 6

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

Coming to you live from the depths of Melbourne winter – while the rest of the country (almost) is springing into spring, we’re still freezing our butts off. Fingers crossed we’ll start to see the sun soon!

Here’s what I found interesting lately around the web:

15 Useful Tips for Attending an Event Alone (and Actually Enjoying It) // Hubspot

There were a few nervous newbies at PBEVENT a few weeks ago – it IS daunting to go to events on your lonesome. Hopefully these tips will help for next time.

  1. hi, Excellent advice. I started getting up, showering and getting dressed a few weeks ago, and did find that I am getting more done. I just read that section to my homeschooled teen who is struggling to get her work done, and she made a face at you – implying she likes her comfy pajamas, and is not happy that she has to get dressed today. We will see how it goes. As for social media, so true. I will log out for the day and will probably get twice as much done. Sometimes it’s the reminder like this post that makes the difference. Thanks Darren.

  2. Is this a new series Stacey?

    The $5 twitter ad from Jon is awesome.

    Thanks for the share.

  3. Hi Stacey, excellent list of blogposts. I had read the epic post on PennyHoarder earlier but the rest of the posts are new and pretty useful. Thanks

  4. Blogging is the beauty of Internet marketing because you can take all those rambling thoughts from in the back of your head and turn it into search engine optimized content which will potentially bring you traffic for years to come not just from search engines but also social networks. Blogging can also be a full-time business which will enable bloggers to make more money from their day job if they put their mind to it do the transformation business work.

  5. Great list Stacey,
    I will take time to go through the list, I’m sure they will be well worth it for you to have spent the time and efforts to mention them here.

    Thanks for sharing.

  6. I am going to check the carousel ads by Facebook. That seems very interesting to me. Thanks for the good post also.
