Blog Evangalism

Sometimes I hate Guy Kawasaki… I’ve been thinking about writing an article about how to build a readership for your blog for a couple of weeks now but just haven’t got around to it. Anyway, I was going to share my lessons of 3 years of blogging, anyway, it seems that Guy has learned the a lot in his 120 days of blogging:

So go and read The 120 Day Wonder: How to Evangelize a Blog

I do particularly like two points that Guy brings up:

  • Scoop Stuff
  • Supplement other bloggers with a followup entries

I know I focus a lot on writing things that are not being beaten to death by other bloggers, and I really make an effort to “scoop stuff” but it’s actually quite difficult, and sometimes I leave days in between posting. Maybe I should pick up on the whole “links of the day idea”, that takes much less work and is at least a little activity.

If there is anything I should be doing more of is commenting on other blogs more and building upon other ideas, I have done that a little and the rewards are obvious.
