Commit to a Specific Posting Frequency
at this point, your post is ready to go live. Amazing work. Congratulations. Seriously, you've put tons of time and effort into your blog and now you get to reap the benefits of all that labor. You're ready to hit the publish button, share your content on social media and watch those clicks compiling in. But then time to start over the good news. Is that generally blogging gets easier and easier as you learn the ropes in this chapter, we're going to talk about what happens next, what happens after you start publishing your blog posts?
