Reading Roundup: What’s Happening in Blogging Lately?

Reading Roundup: What's new in blogging this week / ProBlogger.net

It’s here! The first roundup for the new year.

I don’t know about you, but I’m excited and motivated for a brand new year of learning, growing and enjoying my blog. Nothing like a frest start to get a fresh perspective on something we may sort of, kind of be stuck in a bit of a rut with.

I hope you find something useful here to kickstart your 2016!

Instagram Advertising: What’s Working? // Marketing Land

Have you tried Instagram ads? I have seen a few of them roll out in my feed, and I think it must be much easier to create one now that they’ve integrated that option to your Facebook Page dashboard. The “have a good image” bit is a no-brainer (Instagram is such a visual platform) but it’s interesting to see the research behind these tips.

5 Digital Marketing Tactics to Help Your Brand Stand Out in 2016 // Top Rank Blog

We all know that the key to success is differentiation (and doing it well!), especially in a culture of oversaturation. But the first tip “use existing platforms in creative ways” gave me hope that there’s still life in the old dog yet. It’s time to start thinking differently about how we blog and promote this year.

Facebook Wants to Kill Phone Numbers Forever // Time

Ok a bit of an overkill headline, but there are changes coming to the Messenger app now that 800 million (sheesh!) people are using it to communicate for both business and pleasure. I love the features for the business communication, I think it would be a fantastic way to collaborate with people… but the flip side is you can turn to your personal feed and get lost down a facebook rabbit hole way too easily…

I’m pretty desperate for that virtual virtual assistant “M”, by the way.

11 Google Chrome Extensions Every Social Media Marketer Needs // Adespresso

I had a few of these already (Momentum is great!) but who knew Klout was still a thing? And my chrome bar grows ever wider.

Really though, who wouldn’t want to “increase your productivity and reduce the effort required on all social media platforms”, and if all it takes is installing a few extensions, I’m there!

#Twitter10K: Possibility of 10,000 Character Limit Creates Big Buzz // Entrepreneur

I think being forced to keep my bon mots to 140 characters has made me a better writer. Plus it’s easier to skim my feed… what do you think of largely unrestricted character posts in tweets?

How to Improve Your Page Ranking for a Specific Keyword // Content Marketing Institute

This was so interesting – especially for me, who really has one keyword most relevant to my blog: vegetarian. It is most likely that a few of us have at least a couple, but if you’re looking to rank in those areas, this tips can’t hurt. Very useful too for helping you avoid over-optimization, which can harm your blog rank.

2015: The Year That Angry Won The Internet // BBC

So it’s not just me that thought there was a vastly unusual amount of ire on the web this last year? It seemed something switched the haters into Full-Blown Mode. Some of the stories you hear are downright heartbreaking, and you wonder how much worse it’s going to get. Did you get caught in the fallout? What do you do when the Internet is a boiling pit of rage and you just can’t take it any more?

10 Predictions for 2016 in SEO and Web Marketing // Moz

You can always count on Rand to have some ideas about what’s going to be useful in SEO!

Page Views Don’t Matter Any More But They Just Won’t Die // Wired

It isn’t the best indicator of popularity and influence, it’s true – but it’s still a quantifiable way of judging ROI and some people just don’t want to drop it. Or, probably more accurately: they don’t know any other way of calculating value. Are page views important, do you think? Or is the whole of blogging more than the sum of its parts?

How to Curate Your Social Content with Reddit // Social Media Examiner

If it’s your job to find funny/useful/interesting things to share with an audience, you might like to try these tips.

Disappearing Act: Twitter Pulls Share Counts from Tweet Buttons // Marketing Land

I did not know they announced this in October, but I noticed the other day the count had disappeared here, and thought it was something wrong from our end. Twitter says it’s because the wanted to consolidate and simplify their platform… I’m not sure how I feel about this. My poor Tweet button looks empty and sad next to its other populated friends.

Of course there’s backlash, and with backlash comes a hashtag: #SaveOurShareCounts. If you’re annoyed, let ’em know!

Plenty of stuff in here today to get you thinking! I’d love to hear your thoughts – let’s chat in the comments cos I seem to have a lot of opinions today!

Ah, it happens to the best of us. Nothing a few tips from the pros can’t overcome, though!

Why Manual Link Building will Never Be Obsolete // Search Engine Land

I’ve seen so much discussion about manual link building recently, and whether it should be done or not. This was food for thought.

I do number one the most – and I find it the most fun! It’s also super-revealing into the hearts and minds of your readers.

Ok so it’s established itself as the next big thing that everyone’s jumping on – find your new audience there! (and find Darren here).

Twitter Says Hearts are a Success with 6% Increase in Usage over Stars // BBC

Did you even notice? Instead of “starring” a tweet to favourite it, the icon is now a heart. I always wanted something like a Facebook “thumbs up” to show that I liked a tweet, which sadly, I still don’t have. I use the “favourite” function to save favourites I can refer to later, even though I know lots of folk who use that as a virtual “like” button. Maybe this will help me psychologically move beyond the favouriting that’s always held me back and like a tweet for the sake of it! (but then I’ve still got a list of crap I need to wade through to find the thing I want… hm…)

Google’s New “About Me” Tool Lets You Control Personal Information Shown by Gmail, YouTube, Maps, and More // Venture Beat

Google Plus is now no longer a user requirement for anything Google-related, and so from last week, Google rolled out the new tool that allows you to modify how much personal info users see of you online.

Adam Gopnik on Darwin’s Brilliant Strategy for Preempting Criticism and the True Mark of Genius // Brainpickings

Oh if it’s one thing I’m sick of  doing, it’s preempting criticism. It can really strangle you as a writer, entrepreneur, or creative. Thinking of all counterarguments before you’ve even published anything is exhausting. And probably stupid in many blog cases, because you want conversations, not to be the final word on everything. It is difficult when people take issue with what you’ve written (especially if they’ve misinterpreted you), but I wonder about covering off every possible angle to ensure nobody can complain and if it’s necessary. But this article totally made me think… especially because the practice of criticising one’s own ideas is actually a very useful one, and not just to shut down arguments before they happen! What do you think?

Building a Better Blog: Help Us Help You With the 2015 ProBlogger Census

Building a Better Blog: Help Us Help You With the 2015 ProBlogger Census

It has been a massive year here at ProBlogger HQ – behind the scenes we’ve been working hard on a number of new things including:

  • Adding to our team – in addition to having Stacey Roberts come on as our editor almost two years ago I’ve more recently brought Laney and Grove Galligan into the team. Laney and Grove have both worked with ProBlogger in producing our Aussie event these last few years, but recently they’ve stepped up their involvement to oversee the whole ProBlogger brand.
  • Redesign and Rearchitecture of ProBlogger – in the coming months you’ll notice some big changes to ProBlogger. You’ll notice a fresh new design but also some big changes to all the different parts of the site. Instead of being scattered across ProBlogger.net, ProBlogger.com, ProBloggerEvents.com etc it’ll all be found on ProBlogger.com. This will be a staged rollout over a number of months starting by the end of year (all going well) with a new design here on the blog.
  • US Event – over the last 6 years we’ve grown the Australian ProBlogger event from 100 attendees to 700+ attendees this year. Every time we run an event we are asked by our international audience when we’ll be holding them outside Australia. Each year we’ve said ‘one day’ but now we can tell you that there will hopefully be a ProBlogger event in the USA in 2016. Stay tuned for details.

There is a lot more in the pipeline but to help us shape ProBlogger in a way that serves you better we’d love to get your input and to get it we’ve put together the 2015 ProBlogger Census.

It’s a short survey that will help us get a sense of where you’re at in your blogging journey and how we can help.

We really look forward to hearing your thoughts!

You can take the survey here.

Thank you, and here’s to another great year!

Maker’s Schedule, Manager’s Schedule // Paul Graham

An oldie, but a goodie. I refer to it often. Is your schedule running you or are you running your schedule? Tim Ferriss in his email this week said he got to a point where “my agenda became a list of everyone else’s agendas”, and I know plenty of you out there will understand that feeling. Are you spending too much time answering email, doing tiny tasks, catering to others instead of creating? Let’s make a change.

The Thumb is In Charge // Facebook

If you’ve ever doubted that mobile is the future (who would really, though?!), Facebook has undertaken some research that squarely places mobile in the “you better get on this and quickly!” box. You can download “The Thumb is In Charge” magazine that explains their findings, or follow along as they release three blog posts detailing it all. If you want to be where the future is going, this is pretty required reading.

YouTube Red Will Pay Video Makers During Free Trial, After Concerns // BBC

Did you know that YouTube is launching a subscription service so you can watch your favourite cat-playing-the-piano videos ad-free? It’s only for the US and it’s only a select trial. After vloggers worried they wouldn’t receive ad revenue during the trial, but YouTube Red has clarified they’ll get a cut of the subscription profits based on how long people watch their content for. I am interested to see how the subscription services would go… I often think I’d rather watch an ad than cough up cash but that could just be me.

Slack Finally Lets You Create Group Chats Easily // Mashable

As you know, we used Slack for team communications during the ProBlogger event earlier in the year and this group chat function would have been great. Until now you had to open a new channel if you wanted to reach everyone at the same time (or tag them individually). Get the update for the group chat availability.

Is Twitter the Next MySpace? // News.com.au

Now there’s a thought. Nobody wants to be the new MySpace, but flagging user growth and fewer people using it in general, we could very well see its demise. What are your thoughts? Is Twitter still useful for you?
