9 Posts On Blogging You Really Should Read Immediately

Reading ZenSpill RoundupBeing a blogger in a niche full of brilliant bloggers I constantly run into posts that I wish I’d written.

But I can’t now.

Because someone else already did.

But I need to get you this useful info one way or another.

So what can I do?..

Enter Link Round Up

I’m going to be doing my link round ups a little differently. I realize most bloggers do them once a week on a certain day, but I’m going to be doing a round up whenever I feel that I’ve run into enough exceptional posts to make a round up out of. This will most likely be twice a month. Sometimes even less.

So naturally, because I won’t be posting these round ups weekly, not all the links will be from this week. But I will try and keep them recent.

If you think your post belongs in the next round up, shoot me an email and I’ll be happy to check it out.

    Hey Mark, great collection of posts. I especially liked the Lisa Irby’s and Kevin Ocasio’s posts. I’m not a big fan of SEO and these help.

  • Theodore Nwangene says:

    Very honoured to be included here Mark,

    One of the greatest issues we as bloggers and any other person in life faces often is the issue of procastination and loss of hope especially when we’re not seeing any result on what we’re doing. But if we can be able to challenge that and move on, then we’ve acquired one of the most essential weapon we need to succeed.

    Although in life is easy and that’s why we have to stick longer to what we’re doing knowing fully well that sooner or later, we’ll start seeing some good results from our efforts.

    I’ve not checked out most of the other posts you shared here except that of Lisa and Adrienne, but I will definitely do that right away.

    Really appreciate the mention man.

    Thanks a bunch and do have a wonderful week.

    • Mark Trueman says:

      Hey Theodore,

      Happy to see you here. I completely agree, procrastination is one of the biggest problems people face that keeps them from accomplishing things. Learning to beat procrastination can be a great weapon indeed.

      Persistence is definitely the key. If we keep giving up when things get too difficult, we will get no where.

      No problem. Always happy to link to a great post πŸ™‚

      – Mark T.

  • Peter says:

    These are awesome post you pulled. At least have looked at Theodore article and it resonates with me. It tells me the race is not for the swift but for he that is patient. Dedication even when you don’t feel like should me your motto. John, keep up wonderful article

  • Ti Roberts says:

    Hi, Mark:

    Thanks so much for including me in your roundup; totally appreciate it. πŸ™‚

    You’ve compiled a great list here; some of them I’ve already read and a few I haven’t.

    Thanks for compiling this list for us; I’ll definitely be checking out the others you’ve mentioned.

    Looking forward to your next post; have a great week ahead!


  • Adrienne says:

    Hey Mark, I made it!

    Yep, great list and I hear you on the round up. I’m doing one once a month now and just sharing about five posts I’ve come across throughout the month. I don’t want to overwhelm my readers with even more content to read but when I come across something that I really think they should know about then that’s what goes on my list.

    I appreciate you including my post on Twitter. It’s an area so many people still have questions about and I get that. I was once there myself but I love to help them get past that hurdle. So glad what I mentioned about Triberr was beneficial for you. Yay!!!

    Thanks again and I’ll be sure to stop by those that I’ve not read yet. I see a few here.

    Enjoy your day and have a great week.


    • Mark Trueman says:

      Hey Adrienne,

      Happy to see you here πŸ™‚

      My thoughts exactly. I think having a schedule for something like a round up, forces you to put content there even if it is subpar. And overwhelming your readers is a big problem as well.

      Too many people hear that they need to be on Twitter when they start out blogging but most of them will never see any real results from it, and this is mainly because it takes a while to get a large enough reach to show significant results and Triberr helps you reach that quicker. And I’m happy to mention that post. It was a good one.

      Thanks Adrienne! You too πŸ™‚

      – Mark T.

  • D. Dixon says:
