Want to read more about writing for blogs? There’s a ton out there. Here are my two absolute favorites:

Copyblogger

Chris Garrett on New Media

And here’s a post I published in December:

To let people know about your blog, you’ll need to “claim your blog” on Technoranti, and do other things to get the word out.

I want to share some really cool tools I’ve found, a code generator and an automatic ping service.

The first is:

Tag Generator

This generates the code for you to place tags within a blog post for your choice of web bookmarklet sites/blog search sites.

The second is:

Ping-o-matic

This allows you to ping multiple sites all at once, saving you a lot of time while you let the blog searching sites that you have updated your blog.

These tools work really well, and will help drive traffic to your blog, helping you get consistent numbers of viewers.

I use both of these tools every day and they do seem to help.

A third tool I’ve added is Stumble Upon, which also has helped a lot of people find this blog.

Need help with the blogging part of it? Check out this excellent, what else, blog, by Tammy Powley, jeweler and writer. It’s called Blog Class Info.
