Do something nice for someone
Go find a blog post that someone else has written, a post that you really enjoyed - and interact with it: comment on it, share it across your networks, hell maybe even blog about it; do something that if it was reciprocated, you’d be stoked.
You are reading other blogs, aren’t you?
Seriously, if you can’t immediately think of a post or a website that you’d go to – you’re doing it wrong.
Content strategy is as much about listening as it is creating and publishing. Not only does listening increase your breadth of knowledge and give you a wider range of topics to write about, it identifies like minded people, people who are likely to enjoy and share your content too!
“But I don’t have time!”
Bullshit. There’s always enough time – it’s all in the planning and the tools you use. You can keep track of 50 even 100 blogs a day in less than 15 minutes if you know how to set up the information flow.
