It may seem like another boring technicality to blogging but understanding your demographics and statistics is incredibly important, not only for the content on your blog but also for your business as a whole. 


Your demographics say a great deal about who exactly is following you: how old they are, what gender they are, what country they live in – this is all information which is available at your fingertips. This insight allows you to craft your content according to those elements while keeping in mind at all times who exactly is viewing your content.

Books I've Ready Lately #10 - 40 in 2019

"You must feed your mind with reading material, thoughts, and ideas that open you to new possibilities. What I love most about reading: It gives you the ability to reach higher ground. And keep climbing." - Oprah


I wanted to open this post with the above quote from an Oprah book we will discuss later because it speaks volumes (pun intended) of the importance of reading and why I am so passionate about it.

So we're at the start of the second quarter of the year, and that means we're already 1/4 of the way through 2019! So I thought it would be timely to wrap up all the books I've read lately! The goal larger goal is to read 40 this year, but in an even broader sense, I suppose the goal is to feed my mind with new ideas and to open myself to new ways of thinking as the above quote from Oprah explains.

So I'm going to be recapping the books that I have read lately, as briefly as I can while still giving them justice because there are some fantastic books to go through here.

WE NEED TO TALK! TAKING A BREAK - BIG CHANGES COMING SOON!


There’s something I need to get off my chest after much deliberation as of late. Recently I’ve been feeling stuck in a rut so things need to change around here! After coming back from travelling I was so inspired and full of ideas which was both good and bad. 


On the upside, I feel so motivated to fill JBS.com with incredible content that I am SO excited to write! On the downside, it has made me realise that the tough decision needed to be made to scrap all of the pre-scheduled content I had organised to go up over the next month. It just doesn’t tie into the vision I now have for the blog and I also don’t want to rush into things and just chuck up any old post for the sake of keeping content fresh. 

So, it has led me to the decision to take the rest of the month as a break from posting content and spending that time preparing fresh new content to go live starting in April! I’m hoping in the next 10 days to focus on crafting quality posts that inspire me and writing that I feel giddy with excitement to share - because that’s what this platform has always been about! I don’t want to spoil anything but here’s a brief rundown of what to expect on JBS.com once we’re back up and running…

Taking A New, Healthier Perspective On Fitness

 

It’s critically important to remain as fit and healthy as you can be throughout the course of your life. Of course, you’re never going to be 100% in shape at all times. But that doesn’t mean living in an unhealthy manner is an excuse. Of course, you’re not going to be punished by exercising your free will and forgoing exercise while eating poorly, at least not by anyone else. But you will be the one to suffer, slowly gaining weight and feeling less confident in yourself. But this can and does happen to people, and it can make them feel less and less confident and comfortable in themselves.


This is quite a sad prospect to consider. Surely, there are ways of taking a new, healthier perspective on fitness, perhaps a mindset that will help getting in shape seem less of a mountainous chore and more of a stimulating, exciting challenge to take part in? To us, that’s perfectly possible.

Let us help you out:

How To: Create 14 Blog Articles in 1 Day – Start to Finish [Blogger Broadcast]




You might be wondering how you can pre-prepare content and schedule months in advance so you’re never behind on a post...


The answer to this is to keep on top of everything and be efficient with your time. I have a few tips and tricks that help me pump out five to seven articles a week and have a minimum of sixty posts ready to go at any given time. When you think about it, there is a lot that goes into blogging: brainstorming ideas, gathering products, taking photos, editing photos, writing posts, publishing and scheduling social media promotion, etc.
The good news is that this is a process that can be streamlined to be much more time efficient, and therefore allow you to achieve more. Try to create multiple posts at once by spending time on each of the steps for a few articles rather than running through that entire process each time you want to put a post live. You can take a day to focus on blogging to create anywhere between one and two weeks’ worth of content by following this process.
