31 Days to Building a Better Blog – Day 1

Well the 31 days to a building a better blog has officially started with a couple of blog tips already posted here at ProBlogger (see my first two posts on Strategic Blogging – more to come later today).

As I posted a couple of days ago when I announced the 31 days project I don’t want to be the only person writing Blog Tips as I believe if we all participate we’ll learn so much more. As a result I invited you as readers to participate by:

  • leaving comments on posts with your own experiences
  • asking questions for other bloggers to cover in the comments of this post
  • posting your own blog tips on your own blog and letting me know about them so I can link up

Within minutes of this call for participation I received emails from readers who had already posted their own tips. Here are the first of what I hope will be many links to blog tips in the next 31 days.

  • Paul Short at Blog Logic has written a post with 5 Blog Traffic Tips where he covers press releases, following other blogs, paid advertising to name just three of his tips.
  • Jon at Smart Money Daily has a tip titled Only 2 Good Reasons to Blog for Profit in which he looks at one’s motivation for blogging professionally.
  • Dominic Foster has decided to use ProBlogger’s 31 days Project to make over his blogs – following the tips he reads here and on other blogs during August. He’s going to document what he learns as he goes. It’s a great idea and hopefully something that others will do also as they read on.

Head over to these links and interact with the authors. Please also considering writing your own Blog Tip and letting me know. I’ll post a posts similar to this each day of the 31 days that I receive tips. Hopefully it’ll not only help us all learn a little more about blogging but it will give those who write the tips a little free publicity in return for their hard work.

    Hi,

    Last month I started a blog about a blog. I’m quite new to all of this and thought I’d document my success going from a complete newbie to bigger than Darren @ ProBlogger!

    Darren’s 31 days project is definately going to be something I read carefully everyday.

    If your curious about how I’m going, pop on over and have a read.

    :D

    Darren,

    I’ve got to take a moment to tell you that I appreciate what you’re doing and offer an unabashed plug for Paul at BlogLogic.

    You, Paul, Trina Schiller (who I owe MUCH thanks to), Shai, Tris, Duncan, Rok, Priyah, and so many others, help me maintain this new passion. I am very grateful.

    Kind Regards,

    Mark

    I have just added a Blog to compliment my http://www.usedmac.ca website. I plan on using the blog to keep up to date with the users of my website and also let them post some suggestions or comments.

    Thanks for all the tips everyone! I will let you know how everything turns out.

    I just started a blog about podcasting with Ogg Vorbis audio format. I don’t have problems with the technical part of blogging and podcasting. It’s the traffic and promotions part that I am concerned about … so looking forward to this 31-day project …

    I only hope I could be a successful webmaster as darren and earn 6 figures from Adsense someday.

    Great advice never dies! :) So what if these tips are nearly a year old? I’m going to use your 31 Days to a Better Blog series now to make all of my blogs blogalicious!

    Thanks for all you do for bloggers,
    Christina

    I like Jon’s comments on the Only 2 good reasons to blog for profit. I am restarting my internet ventures again, as I have in the past fallen into the trap of just piling up loads of junk into a blog and trying to do too many at once, these 2 rules are now my new foundation for my online ventures.

  9. Mike says:

    Your concepts are great Darren! Jon’s “2 Good Reasons to Blog for Profit” tip was great too.

  10. Dee says:

    Getting people to interact on the blog is the problem. I’ve found most people click, read, and run!

    I’ve yet to find the solution in encouraging people to comment on my blog. I don’t mind disagreements, I want to agree to disagree.

    I’ll keep plugging away!

    Building up a community on your blog can help your blog grow and endorse the right kind of atmosphere this is something that takes a large amount of time but when it is accomplished can lead to a great rate of growth and success.
