Scobleizer has a good post on how to get your blog discovered. Most of it is the kind I’ve stuff I’ve already got in the but this one was a tad different:
‘Hang out with smart (or at least interesting) people. For instance, Alex Mallett is working in Drew Endy’s lab at MIT. Now, Drew is the guy who blew us all away at FooCamp last weekend. Just the fact that Alex can hang out with Drew and understand what Drew is asking for makes him far more interesting. Subscribed without even reading another post. Figure out who the “connectors” in your community are and find out how to hang out with them. If they get to know you, chances are they are looking for new people to link to. For instance, if you’re a political blogger I’d be trying to figure out how to meet Glenn Reynolds or Andrew Sullivan. These two guys alone have hundreds of thousands of readers per day.’
Scobleizer also links up to Biz Stone’s latest post on the topic ofalso. Again its nothing most of us havn’t already read and it is targetted mainly at blogs that use Blogger – but its a comprehensive summary of some good tips.
