Top Blogging Links...31DBBB Day #6

I scanned through all of the links on the 31DBBB task for today. I found something useful in every one of them! These are the ones I found most helpful:

The important thing after reading tips like these is to apply it to you. How am I going to use these tips to better my blog? Here's what I've decided:

Determine who I would consider my 10 People from the First, Ten post
Find a way to reward those that share my links
Try to encourage discussion
Start using Flickr exclusively when I search for images
Focus on grassroots, networking & several of the other models for building my blog
Do some research on using email & email newsletters with my blog
Learn what my money pages are
Think of blog comments in the long-term & focus on building relationships
Make it clear that I reply to comments - in my comments section
Also include a message in my comment entry space that says I reply through email
Get more active on Digg & StumbleUpon
Think about people & building relationships when I leave comments - not spamming
Declutter my site, fix my search option & use relevant anchor text in my links.
Clearly define my goals, work on my titles & get more familiar with Delicious.
Brevity - reduce, reduce, reduce - series of posts, think forward, link to people.
Again, remember to comment in my own comments section!

Whew!! That was a lot of useful info & things I need to apply to my own blog! 
What did you learn from the links? 
What other links are helping you learn how to better your blog?

This is a great list of I have to figure out how I'm going to find the time to digest it all!

"Shhhh, Mommy''s on the computer. Feed yourself."


Cameron said...

I do sleep!! haha but so does my daughter & that's the key! She's still taking 3 naps a day, so I blog during nap times if I don't have anything else to do! Works out well for me!

Thanks for following me. I am now following you. I will have to come back and read all the tips. Just home for a few minutes before we go back to camp. I have a laptop there with internet, but it is super duper slow.

Great post!! I think those are some really great things to consider... I especially like the one about why people don't comment. =) Most the time I just figured it's because my posts are just so boring.. HAH! =) Thanks for sharing those sites!

Jill said...
