How Posting a Humble ‘Selfie’ Grew Traffic, Shares and Comments on a New Blog

Profile photo of tanya Submitted by tanya October 22, 2013 Website: www.problogger.net

Two months ago my wife, Vanessa, started to blog.

It is something she’s been planning for some time and with a little encouragement and some design help from Shayne, we set up at Style and Shenanigans.

The blog is in its very early days and Vanessa is still finding her voice but I think she’s a natural. I’ve been excited to see her experiment with a variety of kinds of blog posts.

Two days ago saw a new type of blog post on Style and Shenanigans – a post that I watched Vanessa put a lot of thought into. It was the first time she’d shown herself on the blog in a picture with a post called Everyday Style @ Shenanigans Central.

The post included a montage of humble selfie shots of an outfit she wore and a description of the different elements in the outfit.

I totally understand V’s hesitation with the post.

Putting a picture of yourself ‘out there’ for all to see is something I remember pondering for a few days, before I did when I started blogging back in 2002.

    These are good “selfie” photos of you Darren and your wife Vanessa!

    Well, it is a matter of the person’s perspective if they are comfortable posting photos of themselves. I mean it is part of their personality; also being creative and smart to get in today’s trend could be an advantage to gain more audience.

    Thanks for sharing!

    You’re right about your observations, Darren. It’s all about being connected to your readers. And with this kind of post, you know with your picture on it, it gives them the assurance that they needed about the post’s writer’s trustworthiness.
