Loved this post :) I just recently started my blog and have been doing most of these things...however, it is always nice to hear that I am doing something right! I have never used Twitter before so it has been an interesting ride to learn that one lol I am also not familiar with Blog Hop...looking in to that now! Thanks again for sharing this I greatly appreciate any advice I can get on making my blog successful. One way I have found so far of making sure I keep my blog going is that I created a Mommy's timeout part, this is where I write something everyday even if it is an absolute ramble about what I did that day. (I have even gone so far as to lock myself in my room to get it done lmao)  ;D

Add on to what I said above :) I saw that you are using blogger and I was curious how you did the Stalk me part of your page with the buttons for each of the social networks. I would love to do that! :) Thanks for helping!

Lol Love it! Moms NEED a little time do things for themselves. :)

Um the "stalk me" thing...don't remember what I did exactly, however, if you do a google search for "Social Media Icon Generators", there are sites that will do the coding for you, all you have to do is choose the icons and add the links!

Hope that helps!  ;D

Sorry it took me so long to respond!

Thanks for this lovely post! I am also pleased that I am doing most of the things on the list already but it's always good to know :) I have just added a mummy's timout section to my site! That was an inspired idea - thanks to SouthernMess :) x

Great post.

I'd love to add a point? I realize it takes it to 11 lol. Scheduling posts. Many bloggers don't know about this or don't take advantage of it.  There are times I could write 3 blogs in one day. For the sake of readership it's not great to post 3 posts in one day. I was so so so guilty of this! Often two or one of the 3 will get lost in the hubub. Using the scheduling you could space them out to post one a day or one every other day.

Another thing is don't be afraid to start a post and save it in draft for later. There are many times I've had huge writers block. Having these posts to fall back on is great.

Amazing post! Thank you for sharing.

Excellent addition Alize.. although I didn't see the first 10 since they weren't posted here  :( ;) 

Before baby #4 I scheduled a few months of posts. After baby #3 I was immobile for over a months so I was panicked about what labor would do again. I went on a pre-blogging spree. Some day's you can write a few, some you can't even turn on your computer.
