My Readers and I

My Readers and I We Do Stuff

Today is a weekend as you all know, and I was actually not planning to post anything or update the blog with a new guest post this weekend, I am kind of needing to relax for couple of days as I have some health problem since yesterday (Don’t worry it’s nothing serious, really!).

And while I can not be behind my laptop for longer times, and also because I can not be away from it for longer times, I decided to watch some YourTube videos and hear some audio interviews about blogging, social media, marketing and some other stuff!

I came across an interesting interview, Srini the host and co-founder of BlogcastFM interviewed Dave Doolin of Web Site in A Weekend.

There is too much in this interview to learn about blogging, how to publish your posts, SEO, tips on guest posting, teaming up with other bloggers and much much more, it’s really smart interview!

My Readers and I are doing Stuff!

The most interesting thing in this interview for me is when Dave said “My Readers and I are doing Stuff!”, Alright! that’s interesting, I mean what stuff Dave is doing with his blog readers?!

I must mention Dave’s Blog Post Engineering E-book, I know Dave and we are connected some how doing stuff :)

I bought the Blog Post Engineering E-book because I like to award my fellow bloggers who really work hard and give high value, although I am not done with the E-book yet, so probably I will write my review as soon as I finish reading it, but I must say it’s just awesome!

Take a look to the Blog Post Engineering E-book here!

Web Site in A Weekend Design

And by the way, Dave has redesigned Web Site in A Weekend blog, in case you would like to say nice design, hi and bye and this kind of stuff, head over the blog!

The guys over BlogcastFM are so cool, they are doing great work, so don’t stop on Dave’s interview, make sure to spend some extra time, add value to your experience by exploring their site and hearing some other interesting interviews. I like to play the audio while I am working, maybe it’s not your best way, but I am sure you will find your own way to enjoy it!

After you hear the interview, I would appreciate if you tell me what kind of stuff you are doing with your readers?!

    I interact with them as much as I can, mostly thru Social Media. I love receiving ideas and suggestions from them so I know where to concentrate to build what I started. If negative feedbacks come, I am open minded about it.

    Thanks I will surely check on the interview.

    For now I am trying to get the basics of blogging right. Trying to provide useful information to my readers and somehow trying to build a community.

    I would have to agree with his first point that Wordpress is the way to go. Flexibility is definitely big in a blog. Plus the number of plugins and community surrounding Wordpress is enough to make a blogger give serious consideration to Wordpress.

    Dave’s blog is very good, well thought out and I bet it converts well. Even the name suggests he knows enough to want to learn from him. First visit I had I ended up buying some of his stuff, and I guess so do many others. Though I think he’s got a lot more projects than his personal blog.

    I’m not doing anything with my readers.. just recommending them to buy stuff, and using them to make affiliate commissions ^_^ I don’t have much time, otherwise.

    This is one of the biggest points made by Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook when he finally realized the potential of their engagement ads in that his site allowed the live interaction between advertisers and readers. In other words, they could do stuff together!

    It seems the new evolution in internet marketing is in enabling your site or internet marketing application to be as interactive as possible :idea:

    Hesham! Hope you are feeling better today, bro.

    Actually this article makes me realize that I’m NOT really doing anything *with* my readers.

    I’m kind of just posting content and responding to comments but not *really* engaging the readers. I can’t wait to get home from the gig tonight so I can check out the whole interview.

    Thanks for the post!

    Hello Hesham, I hope you got better.

    To enhance interaction on my site I am planning to add special field where visitors could post their suggestions for next blog post and award in some way those whose idea is picked.

      BlogcastFM is on my bookmarks in a special folder “Good read”, well.. probably I should change that to be “good hear” or “good voices” :)

      Yeah, I like that to, really nice one from an avid surfer!

      Thank you Mani, I will follow your advice!

    Hi Hesham

    Sorry to hear you are not well. Hope you are feeling better soon. Maybe it’s your body telling you that you need to rest up a bit :-)

    I am planning some new things for my blog in 2011. Was writing some of them down today and hopefully it will keep my readers coming back for more quality content. I love interaction on my blog and looking for more ways my readers can do that, besides commenting on my posts.

    Also when I guest post, I invite my regular readers to visit the blog I am posting on so they are introduced to another blog owner they may not have met. sharing the luv withing the blogging community.

  • Lennart Heleander December 6, 2010, 8:07 am

    Hi Hesham,
    Like your friend Dan Stevens write about in a guest blog for a couple of days, “Best blogging tip is to stop blogging” and I reply with the comments: “Quality before quantity can only be created by a fresh brain. Take a break over a couple of days and come back with new energy.” That tips should you take Hesham and come back with new fresh energy.

    • Hesham December 6, 2010, 4:47 pm

      What a wonderful advice Lennart, I actually thinking of some kind of vacation for a few days, will plan it though!

    Although success an online business through blogging, the blogger need to learn again and learn more from other bloggers to get more experiences. And exchange experinces and knowledges with other bloggers.
