7 Steps for Blogging Success
It’s been proved that business websites that also have a blog get about 55% more traffic than those that don’t – and more traffic means more potential customers.

After this talk you will have a better understanding of:
- What you want your blog to achieve
- Which platform is best for you
- Why you should update your blog regularly
- How to be creative with content
- Why Google loves blogs
- How to keep them coming back for more
- The Bloggers’ Code of Conduct
Alison Neale, AKA The Proof Fairy, started her career in publishing before taking time out to bring up a family, supplementing the income by doing part time childminding, bookkeeping and office cleaning. The turn of the millennium was the turning point for her: within ten years she left a violent relationship and became a single parent; did a degree; got married and divorced; worked at management level for a stock photography company; and started her own business! Nowadays Alison splits her time between proofreading everything from sales emails to novels, writing articles for her own and other people’s websites, and building WordPress websites and blogs.
