The Blogging Tip Meme

by derek on July 24, 2007 · 15 comments

In the spirit of link love and preparing for the anticipated update to Google Page Rank, there is a new meme of blogging tips making the rounds and I’ve been tagged by Leo Chiang.
Who doesn’t love a few extra back links, right? One change that I would make to this meme would be to include some relevant anchor text on the links but I’m not going to rewrite the rules at this time.
-Start Copy-
It’s very simple. When this is passed on to you, copy the whole thing, skim the list and put a * star beside those that you like. (Check out especially the * starred ones.)
Add the next number (1. 2. 3. 4. 5., etc.) and write your own blogging tip for other bloggers.
Try to make your tip general.
After that, tag 10 other people. Link love some friends!
Just think – if 10 people start this, the 10 people pass it onto another 10 people, you have 100 links already!

1. Look, read, and learn. *****

2. Be, EXCELLENT to each other. ****

3. Don’t let money change ya! ***

4. Always reply to your comments. *****

5. Spell check is your friend. ***

6. Be the blog. ***

7. Your readers are your treasure. **

8. Learn From The Pros. *

9. Pay a visit to your visitors. Be active in your community. *

10. Take advantage of the ability to future date posts. *

-End Copy-
Now it is my turn to pass along the tag to the following bloggers who I believe will have a few outstanding tips:

Stay In The Loop!

I like the tips being given. We could compile a list after this is over. Should be pretty good.

Nice tip and thanx for participating πŸ™‚

@Brown Baron :: That’s a good idea. That could actually be a fun group project to have each of the people write up a full post explaining the importance of their tip.
@Shaun :: Thanks! This is a fun meme as it provides good perspective from a variety of people and types of blogs.

Yeah, we could write a book and sell it online πŸ˜‰

Cool meme!
And though I wasn’t tagged, I’d like to add my two cents:
If you’ve got nothing nice to say, don’t say it. Or type it, as the case may be. ^^

Hi Derek, thanks for participating in this. Always good to see the wisdom of others. πŸ™‚

Nice tips. Please pay close attention to tip nine Derek. :Whistles” πŸ™‚

Lol, absolutely. From time to time I get in the habit of always reading from my RSS reader but I try to make a conscious effort to visit the site as well so I can comment and be active.
I’ll be sure to stop by! πŸ™‚

Thanks for starting this meme! It is interesting to see tips from a wide variety of people and it provides a good checklist of things to do as blog owners.

Interesting idea for promoting sites… I wonder when the next PR update is going to be? I can’t wait, I have been doing so much link building – I want to see some results =D
