  1. I’m super glad you compile this list of retro posts – I couldn’t remember where I’d read “Your First Week of Blogging” post I’ve been needing to refer a friend to. I’ve wracking my brain on this one.
    Thanks tremendously!

  2. Josh Garcia says:

    Darren

    Love the retro posts and looking back at what was popular over the years. The posts from this year are good reminders of what we did not do from the tips provided and to go and do them.

    Thanks for this, much appreciated.

    My two favs are;

    - The power of uniqueness (I have cultivated that in spite of the fact that I always think that every subject has been written to death.
    - The best writing advice ever, where I discovered Larry Brooks at storyfix; Larry’s blog helps me to be unique…

    Looking forward to the 31DBBB(BC)
    Fred

  8. These retro posts are always a great place to go back and get a ton of solid content. It really shows how powerful list-based posts can be as well.

    I thought it was pretty funny how many people jumped on board for comments in the Top 30 bloggers to watch in 2010 post.

    Also, I just got your Problogger book Darren, and it has been very helpful.

If you do select to do that, you will probably have lots of content- but the substance of the text is unlikely to increase traffic for you. Putting in some lovely, old-fashioned content work will yield better results for you. As the expression goes- “you get out what you put in.
