Today’s main task is short and sweet, which is a good thing considering I was pretty much disconnected all weekend! I’m now in Austin, Texas visiting family. I thought I’d have all the time in the world to catch up on blogging, but without the usual toys and things to distract my girls, that hasn’t been the case…
Day 5: Email a blog reader
Easy enough, eh? Try to pick someone new, that you don’t recognize, and respond to their comment or simply thank them for stopping by your blog. Do this everyday, and you’ll build up loyal readers one by one.
- Email a blog reader. To delve a little deeper into this, read about the task at ProBlogger.
- Take half an hour to look through your email inbox. Do you have a good system in place? As a suggestion, read about one-touch email management at Resourceful Mommy. Look at your inbox and delete emails, reply to important ones, and file those that you’d like to save. Delete anything in your sent folder that’s more than three months old. I’ve found that creating filters that automatically put certain emails in their appropriate folders really helps weed out those that aren’t urgent, like newsletters.
If you’d like to participate, leave me a comment so we can visit your blog and see how you’re doing! This is more of a ‘behind the scenes’ type of task, but if you write about it, you can also link up specific blog posts relating to today’s challenge below.
