If you want to see constant growth, you must commit to near constant change. This truth rang true not only here on my blog, but also in many other areas as well.
What do you do when want better results? Do you sit back and hope the same activities will net different results?
I hope not.
This month I branched out and included a few other writers, took risks to write about topics near and dear to me, and also did a few different types of posts (such as our interview with Citizen Way, Top Posts for April, and others). Looking at the top posts of May 2014, I learned a few things.
One of the mistakes I made this month was to include too few guest writers. I should have sought out the wisdom of others more. I also mistakenly started the month out strong…and then my blogging waned over the course of the month.
As a blogger, it is incredibly important to stay consistent, which is something we’ve greatly improved (mostly thanks to my team). But I do look forward to streamlining the process to achieve greater consistency in June.
