Using Summer Months to Build a Better Blog

Written by

Author: TJ Philpott

Building a better blog involves taking measures to make your readers happy whether it’s the content you offer or perhaps making site changes! It is for these reasons and others as well that the summer months tend to be a period of ‘restoration for bloggers since there are NOT as many people using the internet! This lull during the summer offers several advantages and opportunities for bloggers 5 of which we will discuss below!

Needed Break

When blogging you need to maintain a consistent effort which means you need to post regularly to your site! This also means you must be able to develop content that interests your readers otherwise your wasting both time and effort! The intensity of such a schedule can be grueling and is often why many quit blogging after a short period if time! The summer months are great for giving you a much needed break from this routine since there are not as many people using the internet! This can and will help you avoid burnout!

Address Needed Strategical Changes

Whether it’s posting frequency, traffic generation or other marketing strategies you are currently using, it is wise to review them periodically! The summer-time is perfect for ‘objectively’ reviewing the results of these efforts and making any necessary changes to improve your performance in these areas! Due to less people using the internet you can therefore take more time to focus on any strategical changes that may be needed! Remember you blog for your readers but if they are not as active online during the summer this allows you to post less frequently thereby freeing you up for other things!

Focus Realignment

Being sure your focus is ‘on center’ with your purpose is critical to both you and your readers otherwise your efforts will be less effective! When focusing on creating content, and lots of it, it becomes easy to ‘stray’ even sightly from your purpose and/or ‘stated’ theme! Perhaps your results are diminishing indicating you may possibly need to alter your current direction! Whatever the case may be, with a little more time to reflect and inspect your approach over the summer months, you can identify where any possible changes need to be made!

Site Redesign

Making site changes that alter the appearance of your blogging platform are best done when traffic has slowed to a relative trickle! This allows you to actually take your platform offline when applying any new graphics, a different layout or perhaps even altering the general theme! Now you can minimize the interruptions your readers experience due to the decrease in their own activity online during the summer-time!

More Chances to Simply Read

The much needed ideas you write about or the authority you’re trying to build both rely upon your continued education! When the warmer weather attracts most people outside and keeps them busy with other activities, you are free to spend more time reading and researching! This gives you more to write about and thus helps to increase the interest of your readers when they once again become more active online!

Making yours a better blog typically requires focus on improving your content, sites changes or other adjustments for the purpose of making your readers happy! This is why the summer months offer the best opportunity to make such improvements since there aren’t as many people using the internet! Due to this lull’ in online activity you as a blogger are better able to address issues that may take up your time but will result in making your readers more satisfied and thus more loyal! Here to yours being a productive and enjoyable summer as well!
