The Mia Connect Power Chat Blogging and Content
Written by Mia Voss
If you’ve never watched Mia Connect before, this is the perfect initiation. And if you have, you know what a fun ride it is. On this episode, Mia and her guests tackle the topic of content – the hows, whys and why nots. I should mention that our own Ralph M. Rivera was a guest on the show so he got to weigh in on things like where you should be creating and posting content, the benefits of getting on a schedule and how the Triberr platform can help your content get noticed. Other topics include using popups (love ’em or hate ’em?), web design principles and whether or not you should be cursing in your content. Now you really want to listen, don’t you?

You’ve got to hook your readers (but how?) and pull them in (say what?) and maybe hardest of all, keep their attention to the end. Ian’s got you covered – from sharing the advice of a few hard-core content producers, to digging into the “whys” of blogging and even touching on some common barriers.
