Evergreen content is a staple in Internet blog promotion. Evergreen content is content that is always relevant—much like the way evergreen trees retain their leaves all year around. Interesting and relevant content that does not become dated is necessary in order to be found online by search engines. I always try to stay updated on the freshest ways for blog promotion. Not all of them work for me. I have my own ways of doing this but I am open to what others are doing. Listening to another influencer about what works for their blog is like all good advice: glean what you can, apply it to your own situation, and move onto the next. That’s my evergreen advice to my fellow influencers too: never stop learning. You should always want to learn and stay up on your game, whatever that might be. If something works, stick with it, remix…

A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor

Today’s #ThoughtfulThursday quote comes from Franklin D. Roosevelt. I’ve been obsessing about water lately. I have been favoring ocean waves in graphic and sound form since I’ve been home. Maybe because I’m so far away from the ocean now? Perhaps. Or because internally I am feeling like I need to lose myself in a big body of water. That’s my theme of self-care this year: let go. Another favorite water-based quote is from Bruce Lee: Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it…

Marketing

Post 10 of 24 I touched base with my host and they are trying their hardest to bring the server back. Technical issues are not fun, but that’s life when you host your own site, I suppose. So with all my free time (haha, weeps), I’ve been ramping up my knowledge on email marketing. I’ve subscribed to the email newsletters of a ton of people I admire and have been inspired to improve my own email marketing. Like they say. social media is fleeting, but email newsletters are forever. I currently host my mailing list with MailChimp, and their UI is so refreshing. Email newsletters are so intimidating but they truly make it easy. I’m fairly advanced with my web design skills, but there are things that I want to be done that I can’t translate into code with my brain. MailChimp knows what I want and delivers. I’m currently…

Server downtime

Post 9 of 24 My site has been down due to a power glitch since about 230pm. Here I am, on a time sensitive mission, and kerplunk! So I am writing this in Google Keep, while I’m waiting for service to be restored. I’m kinda glad it wasn’t of my doing. It would’ve been an ego boost though. In the back of my mind, I was like, “oh, maybe people are actually reading my stuff and overloaded the server.” Then I could’ve scolded everyone for messing things up! Alas, that is not the case. Web hosting is such a tough business. I don’t regret it. I prefer full control on my server, even if it means being at the mercy of a data center. I know what I like. I don’t like my site to look like anyone else’s. I don’t want to be nickel and dimed for the most…

Why worry? If you’ve done the very best you can, worrying won’t make it any better.

Back when I was trying to develop Hello Salvation more, I knew I would need topics to keep my creativity flowing. So I created themed topics that I plan to stick to everyday if I feel like throwing out some new content, but I don’t necessarily have something worth blogging about. Today is my first Thoughtful Thursday, where I share a relevant quote at this point in my life. It’s incredibly relevant, and I hope to share the good news soon. Wish me luck! Feel free to share the image wherever you’d like!
