Blogging Tips – How to avoid spamming your blog followers

*Collaborative post.

 

I send many emails to the spam folder on a daily basis. Many of the emails I get are unsolicited. I have never heard of the brands before, so it is annoying when I get an email from them. Which is why I can relate when people complain about being spammed by bloggers.

As a blogger, you would likely have tons of valuable information you are excited to share with your readers, but you have to be careful or you would end up spamming your readers. You have to know how to know the difference between updating your blog and communicating with your blog subscribers on a regular basis and spamming them with unnecessary information.

 

Blogging Tips – How to avoid spamming your blog followers

So how do you avoid spamming your blog followers? The guys at Campaign Monitor shared this infographic and I think it is a great resource. There are many useful tips here on how to avoid spamming your followers but I am going to focus on the main points.

Send Only Quality Content

I think sending only quality content is the main way to avoid spamming your blog followers because they every content would be useful. The way to get around this is to rethink every content you want to share to be sure it would be well received by your followers. That way you would only share quality content.

 

Send More Personalised Emails

Personalised emails are more likely to be opened and read than the emails that are not. So ensure the content you are sending out to subscribers are personalised as much as possible, especially the newsletters.

 

Allow Subscribers to Opt Out

The last thing you want is to make it difficult for your blog subscribers to opt out. That is the fastest way for your email to land in the spam folder. Make the opt out option clear so subscribers know what to do if they no longer want to hear from you.

Portugal Travel Diaries

Here are the final set of pictures from our half term trip to Algarve Portugal. We also visited Faro and Lagos. It was a fun relaxing trip. We had a great time and I wish I could go back and soak in some more sunshine. The weather in Cheshire has been dreadful lately. How is the weather where you are? This Cheshire weather is making me miss Algarve so much, but I will survive until my next sunny vacation.

While in Portugal, we decided to visit Lagos. We have heard so much about the city so we decided to make the most of our time there. Driving down to Lagos from Algarve. The kiddies always enjoy road trips as long as they are fed and have some form of entertainment. It took us around an hour to get Lagos, thanks to Google maps and our Enterprise rental car.

The city of Lagos was cool to see. I am happy I got great shots to treasure for life. I could clearly see the similarities between Lagos Portugal and Lagos Nigeria. It was a fun experience all around. We had the opportunity to walk around the centre of the city and soak in all it had to offer. The only issue we had was when the kiddies found a ride they wanted to get on, and us not having our wallets on us. That was the end of our sight seeing. Kids have the power like that….

Our ride back to Algarve was ok. Having said that, we found that many roads didn’t have street lights so they were really dark. Good M is an experienced driver and has driven in many countries. I won’t advise anyone who is not very confident driving to drive here as the roads can be very different with lots of roads and uncountable roundabouts. There was a roundabout on almost every single road we went on.

It was a short but fun trip. I know we will be visiting Portugal again in the future. Probably a different part of the country. I love exploring Europe. So far we have been to Amsterdam, Dusseldorf, Paris (a few times), Barcelona, Milan, Dublin, Edinburgh, and now I can add Algarve to the list of countries in Europe I have visited. I would love to visit the Scandinavian countries next, maybe that would happened for us next year. M has been to most of the Scandinavian countries I want to visit already because his work takes him all over the world. And he has only good things to say about them.

We spent our last evening at the Beach. It was quiet as most people had left already which was just what I needed. I am not a fan of crowded places, especially beaches and swimming pools. The Kiddies had fun posing for pictures, playing with sand and water. All I wanted to do was to walk around  and admire the beautiful beach. It was even more beautiful in the evening.

How to Get Your Life Back on Track

If you feel that, for whatever reason, your life has veered off course and you’re now not heading in the direction that you envisaged you would be, then it’s time you got it back on track. Doing so isn’t simply a case of waking up one day and hoping everything will fall into place for you, however. To get back on the straight and narrow,you have to do a number of things and put in an abundance of hard work. With that in mind, here’s what you should be doing, as well as what it takes, to get your life back on track:

  

First: The first thing that you need to do in your quest to get your life back on track is to open yourself up to the acceptance of help. You need to do so because you’re going to want support, especially when it comes to facing certain challenges that require a specific skill set to overcome. For instance, if you feel like you’ve come to a point where you are overly reliant or addicted to a substance, then you’re going to need help from experts in the field of drug treatment and rehabilitation therapy. You’re not going to kick the habit alone or without the knowledge that such professionals bring to the table, which is why you should accept the help that they offer.

Second: If you’ve gone through a particularly tough time and you feel like that is the reason for your life veering off track, then you need to stop trying to force your healing process. You need to give yourself time to think about the things that you’ve gone through and mourn anything that you may have lost, be that a person or just a piece of yourself. You need to be patient with the pace at which you recover, and you should never jump into doing anything you do not feel wholly comfortable with doing. In the future, yes, you will have to start pushing yourself if you want to find success in your life. For now, however, be patient with yourself.

 

Third: Once you feel like you are in a position to truly make strides forward into your future, you need to start acting in a way that accommodates your new way of living. This involves setting your own values, and sticking to them no matter what happens. It also involves you finding a way to deal with your life today, teaching yourself to neither think too much about yesterday or tomorrow. Plus, you need to always think positively, focus on what can go right rather than what could go wrong. Life is all about mindset, and if you get into the habit of thinking optimistically, more opportunities will find their way to you.

 

You deserve for your life to be heading in the direction that you wish for it to take. To get it on this route, you’re going to have to take the above advice and put it all into practice.
