11 October 2018 by Caroline Geven - 3 Comments

I have a list of blog post ideas for my series here at Yoast.com. I have them written down in my bullet journal and refer to them whenever we’re discussing what my next blog post will be. Usually, when I’m inspired, I can finish such a blog post in about an hour. This time was …

Caroline’s Corner: How to stay unique despite being one of many bloggers in your niche

27 September 2018 by Caroline Geven - 28 Comments

There have been moments in the past year that I wanted to quit my blog. My inner critic would tell me I wasn’t good enough to play with the big bloggers out there and I would tell myself over and over again the blogging world is oversaturated and in particular the mom blog niche. Instead …

Blog post images: Why use them and where to get them

13 September 2018 by Caroline Geven - 37 Comments

For the bloggers who started building websites in the early 00s, blogging was ‘just’ writing an update on your life or writing a tutorial.

Writing great social media content for your blog

27 August 2018 by Caroline Geven - 4 Comments

I’ve always felt lucky blogging for Yoast.com. As I wrote before, I have an entire blog team that makes sure my post gets scheduled, is free of grammar or spelling errors and they publish it on social media. So I ‘only’ had to come up with an idea, which the team often helped me with, …

Caroline’s Corner: My blog planning habits

13 June 2018 by Caroline Geven - 12 Comments

If there’s one thing I’m known for among my colleagues, it’s for my obsession with notebooks and planners. I have not one, but a total of three planners in my bag. Three, ladies and gentlemen. Is this insane? Yes, it is. Is it too much? No, you can never have too many planners. And oh …

31 May 2018 by Caroline Geven - 24 Comments

I love to look at my statistics in Google Analytics. I like to watch the numbers creep up slowly towards the goal I’ve set for this month, and I love to see my hard work paysoff. But there’s one thing I like even more than looking at my numbers: looking at the stats of the …

5 April 2018 by Caroline Geven - 14 Comments

After (re)defining the niche of my blog and creating a proper site structure with the needed categories, I felt as if I had reinvented my blog.

22 March 2018 by Caroline Geven - 10 Comments

As I wrote in my previous post, I blog about life as a mother. Did you notice that I never mentioned that it is ‘a blog about motherhood’ or ‘a mom blog’? It’s not that I don’t know the existence of these words in the English language: they simply don’t describe my blog. In this …
