Because I’m determined to make my blogging adventure a bit more successful this time, I’m reading up on blogging tips. I find this article about becoming a professional tech blogger quite inspiring, but unfortunately it is not very concrete about the do’s and don’ts in the blogosphere.
There are a lot of sites around the web dedicated to help people like me create a good/better blog. Some that seem useful at first sight are http://www.dailyblogtips.com/, http://www.toptenblogtips.com/ and http://www.problogger.net. At first sight, because obviously I have to try things out and see if they work. One of the things I can’t find, but probably read somewhere in the past, is ‘Have some posts on the shelves’.
By doing this I give myself some more time to review my articles more thoroughly, but the most important reason is that this helps when I might have a writers block for a few days. If I create an article buffer for myself I think this prevents virtual deadline stress So above all this is something I’m going to stick to and when you are reading this I am probably busy with writing or checking an article you can read somewhere in the near future.
Oh… and just in case you are wondering, I’m not planning to become a pro blogger! I like my current work too much for that, but it never hurts to read some professional tips.
