When I first began to blog I had no comprehension of how to promote my blog posts and encourage traffic. I simply sat down and began writing on a topic I was passionate about. Little by little I learned some lessons from other bloggers such as in blogging content is king and I began to apply them.
In time I moved from having only free hosted wordpress.com blogs to also establishing a blog on my own domain with the assistance of a professional web developer.
Time passed and I learned how to clean up my markup, do bad neighborhood checks and how to establish and maintain links.
Every day as a neophyte blogger who is growing I surf the net to read more about how to structure a reader and search engine friendly blog and, to accumulate more blogging tips, blogging tools and resources to share with others in this blog. This morning I found a great blog post that I would like to recommend to my readers.
I’ll begin with a quote, follow it up with a sub headings list and leave it to my readers to click through and gain some insight into making their blog a traffic magnet.
