“My Best Advice about Blogging”

Posted on January 25, 2011


I really like reading http://www.chrisbrogan.com

Here is an excert of his post “My Best Advice about Blogging”

Seek link traffic – I write certain posts (like anything with a big number) with a secondary goal of deriving links from you to the story. Why? Because that tells Google and Technorati that I’m doing good things over here, and that matters.

Seek advice – I often write posts where I ask for your opinion. Why have a blog if you can’t start conversations?

Establish thought leadership – When I write about something way off from the norm of what others are blogging about, it’s to show you that I’m not a “me too” blogger.

Promote something interesting – This might be people or software or an event. One point about promotion posts versus other kinds: if you’re looking for comments, promotion posts rarely get them.

Link love to others – Sometimes, I want to give other people the spotlight, or point out good writing elsewhere. It’s important to keep that in mind. Linking out promotes linking in.
