I had always been blogging from the beginning as a way to try and boost my income. When I first started blogging I expected to get money and traffic quickly. However, I quickly found out that maintaining and promoting a blog can be a lot of hard work.
My blogs tend to rotate around mechanical work involving car and truck repair. I have a large degree of specialist knowledge in the field, so I decided that my knowledge might be worth something. Thus, I was surprised to find that even after putting up several live repair guides for specific problems that my blogs were receiving no attention.
I decided to try a wide degree of marketing methods in order to increase the chances of my blogs being successful. I put up advertisements for my blog, contacted other fellow blog owners and even took the time to submit my blog to several directories. One of these directories happened to be blogbal.com.
Blogbal impressed me because it was different than a lot of other blog directories that I submitted my blog to. While it is a free blog directory, it still has a professional outlay and organization that simply speaks of professionalism.
It was not too much of a surprise when I found that my blog was receiving a lot more attention after I submitted it to blogbal. While the other directories and methods that I utilized did contribute some, I found that blogbal was the major factor that contributed to the success of my blog today. It allowed me to break the blogging barrier that had been holding my blog back from being noticed in the past. I would personally recommend blogbal to any serious blogger who is truly serious about the success of their blog and is trying to effectively promote it.
