Well, it is day 3 of the challenge. Today we are
supposed to promote a blog post.

 The instructions aren’t as
clear as I wish they were, but I’ll figure it out. In the meantime, I have a
question!

 

This is from today’s
challenge:

31 Days to Build a Better Blog


Day 2:


“Do not put links back to your blog in comments you leave on
other blogs. Only on rare occasions would this be appropriate.”



And this is from the

Blogging Basics: Hyperlink Signature

 

“When you comment on other people’s blogs,
you want them to be able to track you down to return the favor.  This can
be tricky or time consuming sometimes, so the easier you make it for them to
find you, the more likely you are to get a return visit.”

E: Must read—Every #AtoZChallenge Participant Deserves Visitors..and
some MUST DONTs

 

DON’T fail to leave a
link-back signature to your blog when you leave a comment!
 You’ve been kind enough to leave a note showing
your appreciation/voicing your disagreement/requesting an order of fries with
that Coke, which is super groovy of you to do. The blogger will, if s/he has a
soul, wish to return the compliment by visiting your blog and doing the same.
You’ll make it weh-heh-HAY easier for her/him to do so by providing a link-back
signature.”

 

 

What are your thoughts?
Personally I’d rather be able to find someone so I can go say hello.

 

 

BACK TO THE CHALLENGE AT
HAND!

 

Let’s do it. Promote a post.

 

Pick any recent post you think might be appropriate

Choose one of the techniques to promote your post

            -connect
with like-minded folks in the blogosphere at a conference

            – Read and
comment on other blogs

            – Promote
your favorite posts and bloggers

            -Do not
email your post to random bloggers and ask for a link-back.

            -Do not
randomly tweet your post at bloggers you don’t know.

            -Do not put
links back to your blog in comments you leave on other blogs.                (See above for why I have been violating that
rule!)

 

Not enough time to go to a
conference today. I already read and comment on other blogs. I have never
emailed a post to a random blogger. I haven’t been on twitter much lately, and
I am not sure that I’m guilty of that crime anyway. The last one… see above. So
that leaves promoting my favorite posts of other bloggers!

 

The post of mine that I will
promote today:

As part of another challenge I had to sell myself in fewer than ten words. The results are tied! Click to take a look please. No actual buying is required!


And now to promote others:

with.
