Bloggers Should Have Reach

Monica Rathbun, 2018-02-14

One of my goals for 2018 is to expand the reach of my blog.

As a blogger starting out I had my own site I posted to, but my blogs only reached those who followed me on Twitter, Facebook, Google + and LinkedIn. My blog automatically posts to these three sites using a WordPress Jetpack Plugin called Publicize.

After a few months, I discovered that syndication could be setup on other sites such as SQL Server Central.  This allowed more people the opportunity to read my writing and expand my reach. Many sites, such as these will even send your blog out in newsletters like Database Weekly.

Starting last week, I wrote my first article on Simple Talk and I hope to have more in the future. This week some of you may have noticed my tweets regarding C# Corner. I want to thank to Mahesh Chand (T), Microsoft Regional Director and MVP for introducing me to it.

C# Corner, founded in 2000 is one of the largest software professionals (developers, IT pros, database) online community with 5.5 million monthly visitors and 2.4 million registered members. C# Corner contributors are industry influencers, MVPs, authors, and trainers from around the globe. C# Corner is always looking for industry experts for their opinions, contributions, and expertise to share with its millions of users. Since posting to their site, I have already had over 7,000 views and exposed to millions of readers worldwide.

Websites such as SQLServerCentral.com and C# Corner are just two examples of ways to share what you have written beyond your own website. There are thousands of sites and readers out there looking to learn what you have to share.

If you’re looking to expand the reach of your writing, I highly encourage you to check out this site.

Speaking at Community Events – More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events – Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I’ve got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
