Kids and Chaos is asking us this week what our strategies are for the sack of sugar that enters the household in the form of Halloween treats. Eat in one go? Eke out over the weeks? Or let the kids have some… It gave me the inspiration for this month’s theme: tricks and treats. […]

Erica from Littlemummy.com recently guest-posted with tips for new bloggers. For those ready to move on to the next level, here are suggestions that help you think strategically about your blog, getting more readers coming to it and comments.
Once you’ve mastered the basics of blogging if you’re anything like me you’ll become preoccupied with two things; traffic and comments. Don’t worry this phase will pass too so just embrace it! So let’s tackle traffic first as without traffic there can be no comments. Traffic generally comes in three types; direct, search engine and referral.
When you start blogging one of the biggest challenges can be getting the “party started” with regards to comments. It can be difficult to get people to comment until you’ve established more of a following which can be very discouraging to new bloggers (and old).
At BMB, we like to encourage the community spirit as much as possible. We’re starting a Comment Group for the month of April. What, I hear you ask, is a comment group?
