Picture a Ferris wheel. In each seat, you’ve placed one of your articles. The wheel goes round and round keeping your articles in constant circulation.
One of the best ways to ensure that your articles are in constant circulation is to adopt an effective strategy towards that end.
An easy method is to link to at least three of your articles at the end of every blog post.
Now, you may be thinking: but my blog is about cars or planes or . . .
Now, admittedly, most bloggers try to keep their blogs highly focused so that readers know they can count on reading about a topic they are interested in. You can still do that with the overall focus of your blog.
At Write and Earn a Living, my readers know that if they want to read about writing how-to’s they can count on the blog to have that focus. This is reflected in content in the main posts and in links and widgets in the sidebars. But . . . your blog readers are human, too. Most of them are also interested in good food, good movies, health or history–you name it.
Once you’ve completed your blog post, add another section. I often call this section “grab bag” or “melting pot” so that readers know it is an assortment of articles on varied topics.
I’ll show you what I mean. Here’s an example of how the section might look right after one of my blog posts.
Writing Children’s Books–how to get your children’s book published. Shave years off your learning curve, while saving on costs.
Jack the Ripper:15 facts About a Notorious Killer and Events That Followed–Saucy Jacky left a trail of terror in his wake, one the world has never forgotten.
Tasty Cheese Bacon Biscuits–biscuits taste good anytime but when you add bacon and cheddar they become irresistible.
Now, admittedly, if you are concentrating on gaining inbound links, you may choose to pass on this strategy; however, if your blog is one of the tools you use to keep your articles in constant circulation, this trick may be not only workable but a good traffic generator, especially if you are working towards creating a monthly income writing articles.
