Ten Secrets to Better Blogging

10There’s lots of information and advice hidden in the archives of this site, and I admit that it’s not especially easy to find it all. To that end, I’m going to put up a series of posts from time to time where I’ll give you links to 10 of my posts about a topic that might be of use to you. Today’s topic: blogging. Let me know if this is helpful. In reading through these posts a bit, it’s funny how I sometimes echo themes, repeat advice, etc. But I believe repetition is a good teacher. Plus, I’m forgetful. It’s a perfect mix.

10 Secrets To Better Blogging

10 Blogging Tips – So tiny, you can fit it on a 3×5 card, and yet, I think it’s useful.

Growing Your Audience – Some Basics – Here’s a question I get often. “How do I attract more readers?”

Basic Business Blogging Suggestions – Blogging for work? Here’s a place to look for topics and starting points.

Make Your Blog Design Work for You – Layout and design are important. I’d like to think that looks don’t count, but we both know better.

Conquering Fear of Blogging – Sometimes, we’re just not ready to make the next step. Some advice.

Writing Effective Blog Posts – It’s not that I have a formula, but I do have ideas on what works.

Seven Blog Improvements You Can Make Today – There are lots of ways that blogs thwart your audience. Here are some remedies.

Keeping the Blogging Fires Burning – Sometimes, we run out of motivation. Here’s some ways to fix that issue.

20 Blogging Projects for You – More ideas for WHAT to write, if necessary.

Performance And Your Audience – Blogging Tips – Shakespeare said all the world’s a stage. I believe it.

And if you want the “best of” from my site, there’s always this mega list of posts.

Let me know if this is useful, and I’ll continue the series. Let me know if this gave you some ideas on how to improve your blogging. Let me know if you have questions that weren’t answered by those 10 posts. Work for you ?

Oh, and in case you need to save any of these for later reference, in the right sidebar is an Eco Safe widget that saves pages (with their comments) as PDF files. So, if you want to share these around the office easily, you could always make 10 PDF files out of them and send around the bundle.

    A very useful list. And the possibility to have the different blog posts as pdfs is really great. So I can archive them without having to print them out. Thanks a lot!

    Chris, if I’d never followed your blogging advice some months back I never would’ve gotten my blog going — and certainly would not be writing for ZDNet now.

    This advice is gold, people. It works. :)
