10 Steps to Creating a WordPress Blog

10 Steps to Creating a WordPress Blog | brave new world | Scoop.it

Hey there! My name’s Ryan and I am another new member to the SEER team. I’ve learned so much since starting at SEER but I thought for my first blog post I would cover something I have some background in, WordPress.

 

I am helping to set up SEER’s upcoming blog on SEO for college students and I thought I would share the checklist I go through every time I start a new site on WordPress. If anyone’s New Years resolution was to finally start blogging then hopefully this post will give you a few ideas and tips or possibly save you a headache down the road.

 

The great thing about WordPress is that it really does simplify every step of creating and running a site. I was in a meeting with SEER’s developer Chris Le and half the time I thought he was speaking a foreign language when talking about advanced site design. I know some coding basics but thanks to WordPress and the plug-ins and themes created around it I’ve built more than a dozen sites ranging from your basic blog all the way to e-commerce and password protected membership sites.

Top 10 Blogs for Authors

Top 10 Blogs for Authors | brave new world | Scoop.it
Serious writers, who have experienced some level of success, when probed, will reveal that they have done their homework.

 

They continuously read various magazines and blogs for authors, not just to help them improve their writing, but to ensure that they stay on top of the latest developments and opportunities.

 

Many of the opportunities that I’ve snagged were discovered only as a result of reading and interacting with others on various blogs. These are opportunities I never would’ve found, otherwise...

Content Curation Tools: 5 Different Approaches

Content Curation Tools: 5 Different Approaches | brave new world | Scoop.it

According to the Romain Goday, there are five distinct approaches to content curation. They are: 

 

1. The Expert Approach: Curators
A way to obtain relevant information with a reduced level of effort is to rely on experts. 

 

2. The Crowd Approach: Popularity
Most content curation tools use a series of algorithms to determine which content is popular and make it more visible to users. 

 

3. The User Behavior Approach: Personalization
Content personalization involves using technology to accommodate the different information needs between individuals. It surfaces content that is assumed to be more relevant for a specific user. 

 

4. The Relationships Approach: Social Graph

The social graph is an increasingly used approach to curate information. 

 

5. The Patterns Approach: Emergence
This approach consists of representing the emergence of content over the Web.

 

And for each one it provides an in-depth description, pros and cons as well as example of real tools utilizing that approach.

 

He concludes with a simple but insightful point:

 "Most of those approaches are combined by content curation tools in an attempt to increase information relevance for the users. 

Tools cannot effectively understand the context of the user.

So the challenge is to reduce the noise without filtering information that could be valuable for the user.

10 Steps to a Successful Social Media Marketing Strategy

10 Steps to a Successful Social Media Marketing Strategy | brave new world | Scoop.it

Creating a social media marketing strategy for a blog or a business can be simple or it can be complex.

 

A personal blogger isn’t going to perform a SWOT analysis or dive into detailed market research and create piles of spreadsheets and documents so large that you can’t jump over them.

 

A social media marketing strategy can be three simple steps.

 

1. See – What is today’s situation
2. Think – Define goals and objectives
3. Draw – Map a route to achieving the goals

 

Using these elements as a template maybe all you need to to create a social media marketing strategy...
