This week’s #MondayMashup includes guides on profiting from your blog, social media scheduling tools and tips, and even SEO tips for Penguin, Panda, and Hummingbird. Of course, there are other topics, but I noticed a lot of guides this week. 😉
As usual, I always have to explain what this series is all about. #MondayMonday is dedicated to curating articles that help bloggers and webmasters with blogging, social media, SEO, and web design. I try to publish a new mashup (roundup) every Monday, but sometimes I’m traveling and can’t get to the computer on time.
However, this week, I’m home. Hopefully, in your busy schedule, you’re taking at least 2 hours each week to skim articles around your blog niche so you can keep on top of the changes happening every day.
