Applying What I’ve Learned

I’ve been literally checking my blogs and trying to apply as much as I can from what I’ve learned in the past week regarding better content, getting more links/clicks, better design, and not “putting all eggs in one basket.” So far, so good I think. I’ve been reading other blogs on blogging (blogging blogs? blog blogs? I dunno …) and I’ve been taking even MORE notes and trying to apply them!

WordPress Plugins:
Admin Theme Preview, Askismet, Comment Luv, Comment Timeout, Bookmark This!, Dofollow (not sure about keeping this one), Drop Down Archives, Goodshelf, MyBlogLog, One Click Installer, Sociable, Text Link Ads, TTF Titles, Twitter Tools, Vipers Video Quicktags, All in One SEO Pack (which I have ZERO clue how to use), CForms and WordPress Automatic Upgrade.

I need to install All in One SEO on my other blogs and also install CForms because it’s super easy to use. I’ve also been told to use Bad Behavior, Top Commentators, Google Analytical, and Google XML Sitemaps (seriously, you can find em all here).

What is your favorite WP plugin? What are you working on right now with your blog? Content? Design? Technorati or Alexa? Google PR? Inbound Links? Hits/Visits? Bounce rate? How are you working on it?

On a side note; I’ve realized that one of my not-so-public blogs that I’ve never run any paid postings or any reviews (paid or not) has a PR 1. So, I’ve been adding more good content and sucking up to Goog by adding adsense. I’ve also joined a few niche affiliate links and will be using those to add good content.

Okay, really quick I’ve gotta give props to Katy for her “Race for Rank” series on her “I’m Blogging That” blog. It’s an excellent resource and Katy talks writes in easy to understand terms. Check her blog out m’kay?

Alright folks – I’m out! Stumble this please – I’d LOVE to hear more opinions y0!

Ooh … NEW RULES is on Bill Maher .. I’m outie …


  1. Well you just go on with your bloggy self! 😉

    I have no clue as to what 3/4’s of that stuff is. I’m just doing the same thing I’ve done for the last 8 years .. not a whole lot. lol

  2. Did they do any cake plows at IZEAfest?

  3. Hey.. good post. I enjoyed it and actually spent a few hours at work the other day reading this and following a few links around. Learned a few things too… like how to build up some links in technorati. It’s not that I care all that much, but at the same time, it gives me more incentive to get out and be social a bit (which I am so bad at doing – commenting, etc).

    What are you going to do to “improve” your blogging? Any set ideas yet?
