I've joined a few online blogging communities and they all help me know more about blogging and any blog related news and events. Most of these communities have daily activities to help bloggers grow in viewers and in knowledge in blogging. Through these also, they help bloggers know their co-bloggers. The often you visit a blog, the more you know about the blogger. I have known many bloggers just by visiting their sites but didn't really get to see them personally yet. I know many are like me!
Blogging is cool and amazing in its own ways!
However, when you join so many activities, you may miss some of the blogging activities if you don't carefully track them. These activities require each blogger to reciprocate (of course, that would be unfair if we don't right?), that's the rule of thumb.
A few times I missed reciprocating and I was tagged for not doing so, so as much as possible I don't want those to happen anymore. So I came up with a simple solution so I don't miss anything, here's my BLOG ACTIVITY TRACKER!!!
In this tracker, I keep all the links of the blog activities that I participate so I don't miss reciprocating any of them anymore. If you think this will help you, you might want to try this out too.
1. Get the permalink (I didn't know how to do this before until I started participating in blogging activities! lol. The permalink of any post on Facebook is hidden under its time stamp. So to get the permalink of any post, click on its time stamp reading “x hours ago”, “x seconds ago”, “a few minutes ago” etc. depending on the time passed since that post has been posted. As soon as, you click on the time stamp of a post, you will get to a new page containing only that post. At this point, you can copy your required permalink from the address bar of your browser.
2. Post the permalink in your excel file.
3. Write what type of activity it is and the expected end date of the activity.
4. Mark done, only when you're done completing the activity. :)
I hope this simple tip helps other bloggers. What do you do to make sure you don't miss any blogging activities you join?
