- Comment, read and share this list provided to you.
- Keep a theme or series on 8 blogs you’ll gain more traffic.
- Do not forget to add “reading and writing #” on shares.
- If you have some days busy, comment on the list in advance but share on the allotted day it’ll ease off the work of busy days (I usually do it on Sundays to make-up for busy Mondays).
