I went searching around inside Delicious. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to research, but wanted to know if I could find something of interest, and whether I could make a post out of it. What I looked up ended up being conversion, as in getting your site or blog to give you better results.
If conversion matters, here are 10 sources for information on better conversion:

Easy as That
The real experiment was to see what I could find online for easy-to-understand resources, and whether or not I could find some useful information for blogging. Now, every little bit of what I presented above is useful. In fact, I found several things I want to change in my own projects. But what I really found was that you can be just as useful to your community if you sometimes stop and find great information, and share it in a new way.
Original content is great, but sometimes, being helpful just requires doing a little digging, some thinking, and some sharing. When you’re pressed for time, or when you want to share the stage with others, this is one way to do it. Provided you’re being helpful, and sharing information that you think is useful, it’s a great way to extend the ways people interact with you.
