2nd Blogaversary – What I Learned This Year

2nd Blogaversary – What I Learned This Year

In my opinion, if you’re not constantly learning something new, your brain is dying.  Blogging is no different.  I learn new things everyday from reading your blogs, trying to write mine and seeing the really creative things other bloggers do. Last year when I wrote this post, it was more of a ‘how to be a blogger’ type.  I feel like I’ve written on that subject too much as it is, and honestly don’t really know that much more about blogging…

2nd Blogaversary – SEO Factoids

Quick tutorial for those who may or may not be super down with online marketing – SEO means Search Engine Optimization… aka people finding your site through Google.  When I first started this blog, I paid close attention to it with naming blog titles and URLs and the kind of content I wrote.  In 2014 I didn’t focus as much, and therefore got some screwy results. Bad online marketer Lauren, bad bad bad. Still, it’s fun to pull numbers and…

2nd Blogaversary – Blog Statistics

It’s that time of the year again… roughly somewhat near when I started blogging ‘for serious’ back in 2012! Since another year happens to have gone by at the end of the year, these summary type posts work out pretty well 🙂 Last year, I ran some 2013 blog stats and numbers that I found interesting and half assed some infographics for them.  This year, I figured “go big or go home!” With that, I present to you epic Infographic…

1st Blogaversary – SEO Factoids

Part of my real life non-horse blog job is SEO otherwise known as Search Engine Optimization.  Since part of the reason I have this blog is sort of a playground to test out ideas that I may use in my marketing job, SEO is something I pay attention to. Here on the blog, that means I title some posts and post URLs with specific keywords that other horse minded folk may search for… that is I do when I’m feeling…

1st Blogaversary – What I’ve Learned

1st Blogaversary – What I’ve Learned

Writing, maintaining and foraging for giveaways on She Moved to Texas has been a huge learning experience for me. I knew from the get-go that I wanted it to be more than a personal journal for me and my horse, but I wasn’t exactly sure what. At first, the goal was to create a blog I could monetize with.  I have with this one… a little.  Still, this year has shown me a little of how blogs can make money…

As of December 19, 2013… I’ll have been blogging SMTT 2.0 for a full year.  It doesn’t seem like that long, but 269 posts later I have met cool people I didn’t know previously, learned a lot and overall have had a great time leaning in this little blogspace. Because I am a) a dork b) proud of my blog, I’m dedicating a short blogging series to all things bloggy in SMTT land.  In my real job I do online marketing…
