Blogging Tips

Yay! I've never been tagged for anything before, so when Lisa over at Books. Lists. Life. tagged me for a blogging tips meme, I was really quite excited. Unfortunately, I don't have ten people to tag back, so if you're reading this and would like to add your own tip to the list, I hereby officially tag you.

-Start Copy-

It’s very simple. When this is passed on to you, copy the whole thing, skim the list and put a * star beside those that you like. (Check out especially the * starred ones.)

Add the next number (1. 2. 3. 4. 5., etc.) and write your own blogging tip for other bloggers. Try to make your tip general.

After that, tag 10 other people. Link love some friends!

Just think - if 10 people start this and the 10 people pass it on to another 10 people, you have 100 links already!

1. Look, read, and learn.***

2. Be EXCELLENT to each other.**

3. Don’t let money change ya!*

4. Always reply to your comments.*****

5. Link liberally — it keeps you and your friends afloat in the Sea of Technorati.***

6. Don’t give up - persistence is fertile.*

7. Give link credit where credit is due.***

8. Pictures say a thousand words and can usually add to any post.***

9. Visit all the bloggers that leave comments for you - it's nice to know who is reading!***

10. Thrown in something humorous occasionally, to keep things fun.*

11. When picking the URL for your blog, think short and easy. You'll be typing it a million times.

12. Always think before hitting publish. What seems like a good thing to say one moment might come back to bite you later.

13. Okay, I cheated. I actually have another one: Don't overcrowd your layout. Simple isn't always bad.

-End Copy-

I agree with all of the previous tips...except #3. Who said anything about money? There's money? Enough to change me? Where?
