The value in guest sites

Is your website the place for your blog?

This week a question around blog posts came up…

Are you one of the many that concentrate on creating blog posts for your website?

Content right?! Sharing our story….

A client featured her first blog on a group blog site, local to her area and in the demographic she is personally in. Her blog was sharing a story that is deep and meaningful to many other women her age.

I see so many benefits for her in finding a network that connected with others, sharing her challenges. She is able to be a support for so many, more quickly than she may have reached on her own.

I question if the depth of connection and interaction could ever be the same with her efforts on her own site.

Can you see the benefit in sharing your posts originally on guest sites and then linking them to your site?

What are guest sites? Sites and groups that are not yours.

Would you like help looking for sites like these?



Planning Day – Vision

Planning Tuesday


This morning was dedicated to planning. So website updates it was.

In making changes to this site future vision has been created.

Old material on the site was changed from published to draft.

Pages were revised on the menu. Pages, Posts and Links were added.

Simplicity is the focus for everything on this site.

Some of the questions asked for which changes were based on:

 Is Everything Easy to Find?

Is it Friendly and Inviting?

Is there Planned Growth?

There are more questions that can be asked but for today this was a start.

SystemsGirl is big on Community we’ve participated in helping event organizers with charity events. Roles have varied depending on the event. With some it was a full Social Media Marketing Strategy, with Administrative and Volunteer support. For others it was sharing a charity event to build awareness. Always looking for an opportunity to share, how with a system it might be simpler and less time consuming.

The Blog here is where we will share what is going on. Such as this post.

Adventures – are a must. I can see this page of the site being a lot of fun going forward. Currently there are 3 major Adventures underway…

1. SMBizStudent – Learn Something and Share it

Focus is on Social Media Sharing, Strategy and Amplifying Voice, Creating Attention Online, Sharing a Message and knowing Your Audience.

2. SmallBizStudent -Business is Forever being a Student

 In business there is so much to know. Learning, growing and implementing something new regularly, is the focus. Taking Small  Businesses Back to School.

3. Partnerships – the residual income portion of SystemsGirl.

Because every Business could have residual income. This section is where we have Partnered, or have referral or affiliate relationships built with other companies. These companies are Positively Impacting in the world with their tools and resources and we recommend you have a better look at them.

Future Vision and Planning

Memberships and Affiliates are 2 sections where planning really showed up. The plans are to develop these pieces in the near future – thus the COMING SOON

There will always be learning and sharing here.

This site uses Bluehost Website Hosting

Did you know that WordPress powers 26% of the internet? It’s a claim they are proud to make on their website with 50,000 new sites every day.

This site is a wordpress site. I created the site – although not fancy or perfect it allows me to learn in easy steps. I learn something new every day and I own my domains. (Several actually.)

So I build the sites and then I host them, Via Bluehost. Web Hosting $3.95

Bluehost is having a Fall Sale this means that on September 27 you can snag hosting at a discounted rate of  $2.95/mo* (for 12, 24, or 36 months). The lowest hosting rate I’ve noticed in a long, long time.

*Promotional pricing is for the first term only. Regular rates apply upon renewal. Sale ends on September 27, 2016, at 11:59 PM (MT).

Shared hosting options are also available connect to discuss this feature as it is not something I recommend for everyone.
