Mike Allton over on Google+ (G+) shared a column from The Social Media Hat called:
You Are A Bad Blogger, But That’s Ok. On G+, when Mike shared the column he asked if anyone had advice for new bloggers. Here’s what I said:
–Set a schedule and stick to it:
Post on the same day(s) every week and don’t miss a day. Your readers will come to expect your columns on the day you blog.
–Get ahead and stay ahead.
Write your columns way ahead of the day they are due. I write three blogs and I’m a month out. Staying ahead is the only way you can be assured you won’t miss a beat.
–Reference your business site as often as you can. This is one piece of advice I must work on.
One piece of advice that I haven’t been following and the most important reason I’m blogging via:
CJP Photo News is to draw people not only to my blog but also to my business is to reference my business site. I MUST start doing so to attract new clients to my photography site. With that in mind, I have created a link to my photography site directly under my Gravitar.
In the future I will be adding links to new pages to CJP Photos when I return from a photography shoot. In the meantime feel free to explore my photography site above. It’s where I sell my images. I hope to do more referencing to my site in the future.
Once spring rolls around I should be out more with my camera. Before that happens, and with winter showing no mercy in New England, I’ll share a few pages of springtime photography in Madison, Connecticut to prepare you for spring which is arriving shortly:

Enjoy the Spring photos and know that the warmer weather and colorful blooms will be here shortly.
In the meantime:
Focus on what’s ahead of you.
