Over on Coversation Marketing, there is a nice list post that breaks down some things that we should all be doing to optimize, develop and market our blogs. What is great about the list is that it isn’t too serious, and it has its funny moments, like the first item on the list:
If you have a Flash introduction on your web site, delete it. If you don’t agree, try this: Shove your head into a bucket of water. Stay in there, not breathing, for 10 seconds longer than is comfortable. That’s what you’re doing to your customers. Delete it, please.
Definitely an interesting read, and while I don’t agree with everything on the list, it has some great ideas that can be sifted through which should help most bloggers move upwards in traffic and influence.
