Hello ladies. I don’t usually write guest posts, but when I do it looks something like this:
Leave Comments — The ladies love this. Of course this involves actually reading her posts and NOT JUST LOOKING AT THE PICTURES! Guys are, for the most part, fairly competitive. See if you can get the first comment. I’m looking at you, Ticia and Wonder Mom!
Write a Guest Post — or at least offer to write one.
Trouble-shooting — Does your wife want to move her blog from Blogger to WordPress? Is she working to set up an e-newsletter? Offer to help! Even if technology is not your thing, seek out other online resources for help.
Show Some Interest — Ask her how things are going with her blog. What are her biggest hopes for it? Tip: Actually listen to her.
Celebrate Milestones Together — Did your wife’s blog make 1,000 page views in a day? Did she win a blogging award? Did her web traffic double in the last month? Milestones are important to recognize and should be celebrated, even if they appear insignificant to you. Bring home some tasty dark chocolate, unless she is diabetic or allergic to it. Then I’d advise bringing home something else.
Give Her A Space Of Her Own — It doesn’t have to be big, but it should be special. A desk with room for a laptop or computer, plenty of good lighting, and a few good social media books will go a very long way. It also keeps her away from your desk.
Subscribe — Sign up for your wife’s RSS feed, follow her on Twitter/Facebook/Pinterest/G+. Mail filters are quite powerful these days!
Take Some Photos — Your wife may have a hard time getting into the photos for her own blog unless you are there to take a few photos for her. Offer to take some once in awhile. Make sure to take pictures that she wants you to take, and not just what you want to take photos of, if you know what I mean and I know that you do.
Spread the Word — Do you know co-workers or other friends who may be interested in your wife’s blog? Let them know about it!
