The doctor holds up the paddles and looks at the heart rate monitor.

We have a normal sinus rhythm.

You did it, Doctor. You saved the Blog!

It seems so, Nurse, but the Blog will need to take care and get regular exercise in order to stay healthy.

I’m sure with a little TLC, the Blog will continue to flourish.


The X-ray of a Blog

In this three-part series, we are exploring the attributes and make-up of a blog. In part one, we examined the Skeleton, Skin, Nervous System, and Brain. Part Two explored the Heart, Soul, Mouth, Eyes and Ears, and Hands. Part Three brings you the Muscles, Health, Feet, Veins, and Stomach of a blog. As previously, you will find links to help explain and provide you with more detail. Onto our final look at the X-ray of a Blog…

Nervous System Mouse ExerciseThe Muscles

SEO or Search Engine Optimization is the muscle behind your blog. Learn how to work your blog to get the best results. The proper training can get your blog to its optimal fitness and allow it to reach its greatest potential.

A Healthy Blog Apples with ScrollThe Health

Growth and relationships are vital for a healthy blog. So just how do you increase your traffic and visitors? Frequent, quality posts that lead to interaction and engagement of readers will go a long way toward your goals.

Funny Feet FacesThe Feet

A blog needs not to be stationary. Use your feet. Go out walking and visiting other blogs. You may find inspiration, things you can incorporate into your own blog … do not forget to link back to theses posts. Write a guest post on someone’s blog, or provide others the opportunity to guest blog for you. Link Parties and Blog Hops provide you a fun-filled way of finding and exploring new blogs, and always remember to leave comments wherever your feet take you. Backlinks, Guest Blogs, and Link Parties are all great ways to gain new readers for your own blog.
