Good Morning! Start your Monday off right...
#1 DON'T LISTEN TO BLOGGING GURUS!
One schmuck came up with a bunch of jive about stripping all of the widegets etc. from your sidebar(s) and of course a bunch of sheeple bloggers unable to think for themselves did do!
WRONG! You don't have to flush your creativity down the toilet because one idiot says so!
Usey our head! My blog got over 3-thousand hits one day last week just by me being a smart blogger - using a search term as the title of article that instantly attracted droves of people and sent my site to the TOP of Google just for that particular keyword/topic! The post took me less than 5 minutes to write and publish.
#2 REMEMBER ::: YOUR BLOG IS ALL ABOUT TWO THINGS - READERS and CONTENT!
I don't care if you have 5 sidebars chock full of widgets and crap galore. If you posted about something trending hot, you'll have thousands of hits. (Of course, with a simpler design you'll have thousands more, people who are unable to view an overstuffed blog template)
Sometimes the blogging gurus actually give out some good advice. Denise Wakeman, who stole my "Blog On!" shout-phrase, remarkable posted some FREE advice (I have saved the file in case she bgins charging for it, just let me know your email addy and I'll share it with you) for "Building Community on Your Blog" - there are six "tips" - but all you need to concentrate on are #1,2 and 3...
- Push for comments
- Engage Readers whenever you can
- Make content interactive whenever possible
#3 READ MY LETTER TO A YOUNG BLOGGER" Snippet: "The clever cutting-edge blogger does not simply re-hash, re-write or share existing material - he or she re-channels and re-imagines it. Many bloggers go a step farther, posting original material exclusively in innovative and non-conventional fashion."
