So today I became a spy! Yes, part of my 31 day to better blogging challenge was to scope out a blog in my niche and see what makes them tick. I investigated there posts, followers, how they promote, and what makes people keep coming back for more. I LOVED it! I felt like a real CIA agent or something.
Here is what I found:
~ There are not a lot of florist blogs out there! Can you believe that? With all of the stuff we do and memories we make it seems that very few of us write about it. Now that could be because most of us are to busy running our shops to take time to write.
~ The few I found have amazing followers. The followers are dedicated and reply to posts on a regular basis.
~ Florists make pretty good bloggers. I saw tons of great photos, stories, and promotional ideas.
What I learned from all of this is that I am on the right track. It's all about sticking with it and writing about topics that showcase our work and knowledge. The personal touches we add to each post set us apart from each other but we all seem to have the same goal: Educate the public on the joys of flowers.
