Happy New Year and the start of the 2018 series of Smorgasbord Posts from Your Archives

Happy New Year and the start of the 2018 series of Smorgasbord Posts from Your Archives

Last year I started a series called Posts from Your Archives. I invited bloggers to share posts from the start of their blogging career that perhaps didn’t receive a lot of views in those early days.

That didn’t mean that the posts were not great, just that there had not been time to build the various platforms across blogging and social media to gain the attention it deserved.

The purpose of this series is to share those posts again but with my audience across my platforms. Importantly, it is a way to introduce your content and writing style to a different set of readers, who will then come across to your blog and follow you going forward.

Since the start of September 2017 over 40 bloggers contributed 160 archive posts across many different topics and I hope that in 2018 many more will share their work with us.

The New Series of Posts from Your Archives.

This series I am looking for posts from your archives that are at least twelve months old. If you are a new blogger in the last year then please let me know and in that case the posts will need to be at least six months old.

The theme is LIFE and POSITIVITY in all its glory. Family, travel, short stories, non-fiction, poetry, history, food, recipes, pets, health, relationships, music, photography, art.

I will be posting up to three bloggers per day in addition to regular posts, and unfortunately that does mean that time can be a little compressed!  Posts with more than five photographs will be posted under the Smorgasbord Reblog – Posts from your Archives. This usually applies to travel posts.

All posts and images are copyrighted to the original blogger on the archive posts and if you do not have a credit for the images you use in your posts it would be helpful if you supplied those. If they are your own images I will include that in the copyright statement.

As you will see you will have an opportunity to promote your work, such as books, at the end of the posts.

If you just wish to promote your books without contributing posts, then that comes under a separate set of promotions. https://smorgasbordinvitation.wordpress.com/sallys-cafe-and-bookstore/

How to submit your posts.

Email me Four links from your archives of the posts you would like to share with a new audience… MINE.  Sally.cronin@moyhill.com

Please also include – your three main social media links (in full please). If there is no bio on your blog or photo (both should be really) then please send those separately attached to the email.

I hope that you will enjoy this opportunity to share your writing and blog. The only thing that I ask is that you share on your own social media and respond to comments.

It does make a big difference to the number of interactions you receive and also the number of people who will head over to your blog and follow you.  If you are an author this is yet another way to promote your books and is a selling opportunity.

A New Twist – I know that some of you are very modest.. so if you would like to participate but not sure which posts to submit… let me know and I will pop into your archives and pick four.. and run by you for approval.

 

Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks Sally

  4. My blog with the older posts has a problem but only with new posts so you should have no trouble getting them with the link. I really appreciate this as it has increased my own blog just like you said it would. I just need to call google to fix the text but otherwise old posts are in good shape.
