Speedlinking – 29 July 2007

Posted By Darren Rowse 29th of July 2007 Pro Blogging News 12
  • Digital Inspiration reports that Blogger have added a new feature that allows their users to add comment policies to their blogs. Excellent idea.
  • BlogHer is currently running. This is one of my favorite Blog conferences to watch (from the other side of the world). If you’re there and blogging the event feel free to let us know about it in comments below. Wendy from eMoms is and has a couple of good recaps of sessions here and here.
  • Nate analyses his RSS subscriber growth (he’s up over 400 now in six months) – I love reading these types of posts – it shows the power of interacting on others blogs, running competitions, getting links from other blogs and posting consistently. Nate’s been doing some good blogging of late – my guess is he’ll break 1000 in a shorter time than it took to get to 400.
  • SEOMoz have another good Whiteboard Friday video – this one on what to do when someone breaks your copyright – the process that they go through.

  1. Thanks for the reminder, I hope I’m near that area next year. I would’ve loved to have went to the BlogHer event.

  2. great posts and links to even better sites! :D

  3. Agreed with the commentor above! *=)

  4. I found Nate’s blog to be very helpful. He has a lot of interesting posts.

  5. Is it me or is SEOmoz down at the moment?

  6. Thanks for the head’s up about the comment policy capability. I have wanted to do this for a while but didn’t want it blaring in the sidebar.

  7. Thanks for the link, Darren! And thanks especially for being a support to my blog and me!

  8. Your speedlinking post always helpful. I heard you read a lot of blogs, how you set up your radar? My blog reading is getting more and more, just looking for a better way to cope.

  9. I attended BlogHer and found it to be very rewarding. I did not try to blog it live, but I did write a post listing the highlights and linking to some of the people I met:

    There are also a number of people who blogged it live and some of those can be found at the BlogHer site.

  10. I was only able to go for about 20 hours and BlogHer was more than worth the fast trip (here is a live-blogged post).

  11. Darren, You’ll probably read a lot of blogs directly or via reader as I guess. How do you setup your radar ? as Ken said in this comment.

  12. Ken – I use Google Reader to track blogs and have a different folder for each topic that I blog about. ie for ProBlogger I have a ‘blogging’ folder which I add to each time I find a good blog on my topic. Then I go through the folder every day. Nothing too magical about it.
