Blogging a Mind of It’s Own

This post contains affiliate links.

The busier I get in my work and home life, the less time I have to actually spend the hours writing articles for my blog.  This is why my poetry blog hasn’t had a random Twitter poem in over a week and my personal blog has had days where no articles were published.

Fortunately DragonBlogger.com shows no signs of slowing down, my writing team does a good job keeping new content flowing to the site and I run most of the PR, Sponsored review coordination and write about 2-3 articles per week for it in addition to running the big contests.

I am however in potential talks to have a new podcast start up on the site, this would be 1/2 hour or 1 hour tech, gaming and gadget related podcasts held by a few writers who used to run a podcast on GameFaqs Podcast a video game blog.

I don’t know if it will pan out, but it may bring another dynamic to the site and allow us to attend more trade shows including the ability to get interviews and bring more original media other than writing to the site which is something I have been wanting to do but have limited time for.

What I really see and truly am thankful for is the pride and quality I see in the writers who are working for my site, some of my writers are going above and beyond simply freelance writing and are contacting companies on behalf of the site trying to line up new products to review.  This was something I gave as an option for my senior writing staff who had been with the team a year or longer.

It is already paying off big time, with DragonBlogger.com getting new products to giveaway to readers and early access to review some game and other media content.

I have noticed with the PageRank restored (PR3) more advertisers have come in with interest, SocialSpark has picked up a bit as well in September and my earnings are more than the whole August by the 16th of September which is a really good sign.

This Lenovo Laptop Giveaway is just the icing on the cake, and it has collected more than 10,000 entries in the first 3 days.  I think I may be able to get more than 100,000 entries for this contest which will be the largest by far.  This will translate into larger social media following, awareness of the site and more potential joins for future tech gadget giveaways.
