Are you a blogger? Do you care about SEO? Do you want to grow your blog and expand your reach? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then keep reading because today’s post is for you.
Until recently Cornerstone Confessions has held a weekly link-up party called Titus 2 Tuesday. In fact, Titus 2 Tuesday has been a weekly event here on Cornerstone Confessions for 226 weeks–that’s over 4 years! Over the years I have had the joy of meeting and getting to know hundreds of bloggers and sharing thousands upon thousands of wonderful encouraging posts.
However, a few weeks ago, my life as author of Cornerstone Confessions was turned completely upside-down as technical difficulty after technical difficulty began to plague this website. As such, I took a step back and began to research and revamp. In the process, I read several articles on link-ups and the latest Google algorithm updates. The results surprised me. Links due to link-up parties and link-up buttons are now considered an SEO risk factor. Yikes!
Understandably, I immediately began to contemplate the future of Titus 2 Tuesday here on Cornerstone Confessions. We all know the importance of community and sharing so that is definitely something I don’t want to lose. However, in light of my current findings, instead of continuing Titus 2 Tuesdays, I’ve opted to continue our sharing another way–via a Facebook group! This way we can continue to expand our reach without the SEO downfalls, all while better meeting the needs of the community in the process.

Just before my technical challenges, I posed the following question on Titus 2 Tuesday: “What would you like to see change on Titus 2 Tuesday?” Many responded that they liked Titus 2 Tuesday the way it was, but of those that did request a change, it was only to have items categorized for easier sharing, and more opportunities to increase profile followers.
Thus, Sisters Spurring Sisters will allow us to do just that. Post sharing will be categorized and opportunities to expand your reach via different social media platforms will be provided. You can expect the weekly sharing schedule to look something like this:
