I'm not looking specifically for comments on the design, but on the content and structure of my blog. I'm an entirely self-taught designer, copywriter and blogger - and sometimes I feel like there are gaps in between what I know, and what I should know.
In particular, I'd love advice about how I can better spread the word about my blog. I've had it almost a year now and would really like to know how to "take it to the next level" - especially with social bookmarking and things like that.
I realize things have changed since my Advisor days here
I will post on the content part in the review your site forum, but I'd still greatly appreciate any information you can give me on marketing my blog on social networking sites.
(i.e. is it worth it to add digg/sphinn buttons to every post? do people even use them? and how do I increase my authority on technorati and get people to interact with the blog through it?)
I think you better go to other site and looking for their word inside the post. Go to blog who have a high ranking and learn how they type word on every post. A lot of thing you can learn if you always visit and view other blog.
Well about spreading your blog i would like you to suggest that do loads of Social Bookmarking to make it popular. And the other thing is that they say content is king so write a good quality content an i'm sure you'll take your blog to another level
Sherice, you can as well submit your blog to directories. There's a lot of free directory listing out there. If your blog is accepted to DMOZ directory, I believe it will bring your blog to the next level.
concerning your blog content, you can also improve that by asking for suggestions from the visitors that you recieve. you may place a survey on what they want to see in your blog, what they like about it and more.. you can use the gathered data to improve the content of your site.
