Behold the Expertise of the ProBlogger Community – 95 Reader Tips

Posted By Darren Rowse 13th of August 2007 Miscellaneous Blog Tips 0 Comments

Building-A-Better-Blog-2It’s day 13 in the 31 Days to Building a Better Blog Project and this morning I woke up to four emails from readers reporting enjoying different aspects of the month’s activities.

  • The first had recruited 12 friends to do the project with them
  • The second told me about how they’d seen their new blog’s readership triple this month already by following the daily tips
  • The third told me how he’d had his biggest traffic day through the traffic from the last batch of reader submitted tips
  • The fourth told me that he’d added 20 new blogs to his feed reader after finding them from the reader tips in the first couple of batches of submissions.

I’m glad to hear people are enjoying the project so far.

Today’s batch of reader submitted tips total 95 in number which takes the total number of submissions to 246. Once again there is some quality reading in this lot. I’m still only about halfway through them but have really enjoyed the breadth of topics covered and the expertise in the wider community.

To Participate – to submit a link to be included in the next batch follow the instructions in the introductory post to the 31 Day Project

See the Full List – to see the 13 daily challenges written so far and the full 246 reader submissions see our 31 Day Project Main Page

Here’s the latest batch of reader tips! (warning – you might want to grab a coffee and make yourself comfortable before attempting to read it all!):

  • Thank you Darren for the great links once again. Also thank you for linking a couple of my posts.

    The new design is really catching on as I get used to it. Great job!

  • Well I see that I have some reading ahead of me. I’m enjoying the project Darren and I thank you for once again including me in it.

    Ps: Love the new design!

  • Hello Darren,

    I just wante to stop and thank you for including my article on WordPress in your list of tips!

    I too think the new layout is much better, then the old one, keep up the good work!

  • Thanks for linking to my articles; I’m really glad you enjoyed them.

    And I really love this aspect of the 31 Day Project. Every article you have linked to has been worth reading, and I’ve found almost a dozen new blogs to subscribe to so far! (I imagine that will be even more after this post…)

  • Darren,

    Thank you very much for including my tips, once again. I also would like to thank everyone who has submitted tips for this project.

  • Thanks for the link! I agree with everyone else – the new design is great.

    Congrats to everyone for some awesome writing in this project. The whole 31 days idea is really well thought out and implemented. It brings bloggers together, helps spread traffic, and helps build traffic for Darren. It works out well for all involved!

  • I have a quick submission for blogging tips…

    Love the new look & the video options…

  • Will definitely take me awhile to get through all these, but will probably be worth the time, tks :)

  • Hello Darren,

    Thanks for your tips, I am trying to follow all of them.. I just thought the image you are using it for 31 Days to Building a Better Blog is a bit rough, so I did a small variation to it.
    Hope you will like it and use it :-)
    Here is the variation:

    Here is how it will look if used live ;-)

    I can send you the psd too, just a mail.

    Thank You

  • Hi Darren,

    This is really a great exercise and I’ll come back again and again… This project not only bring me record high readership, but introduced me some realling interesting and insightful blogging fellows.

    Can’t thank you enough.

  • Thanks for the link – super list!

  • The amount of content is overwhelming.

  • Thank you very much Darren for the links. There are a lot of great tips in those articles. I sure have a tremendous amount of reading to do :)

  • Hi Darren,
    Great post. For people looking to outsource their blog design, a great place to find a freelancer is oDesk (http://www.odesk.com). It’s free to post your project – and for the best results, be as specific as you can. With oDesk’s neat hourly payment system, it’s easy to work with a freelancer in designing exactly the kind of blog you’re envisioning. You don’t have to keep track of their hours — and neither do they — oDesk does it all for you. Just a thought for those budding bloggers out there…

    One think I am always wondering how to be in top 10 of your listing by submitting my entry as early as possible ;-) but don’t know in which sequence you take entries to post. again ..lol

  • Thanks for the link to my article Darren. This is the first time I am doing a proper series of posts on my blog, so I’m waiting to see the reader response to it. As always, great job putting together this event — a lot of very informative material is coming out of it.

    On a side note, this new layout for the comments is an immense improvement and it makes looking through the comments a pleasure. Good choice, and my compliments to Ben Bleikamp.

  • Thank you for all the great links. They have already helped me.

  • Wow, I fell behind on the 31 day project and am back in the swing of things now….I have a LOT of reading to do. Thanks Darren, I’m sure I’ll be learning something new today! :)

  • Thanks for featuring me here, i appreciate that, will write more better articles to present.

  • Hi Darren. Thanks for featuring me again. You’ve listed one of my posts twice (Adsense Optimisation, Straight from the Horse’s mouth) twice, the first time in the edit link. I submitted it by accident and thought I’d cancelled the submission, guess not!

    Thanks.

  • Thank you for including my post. Your series is a great exercise for everyone.

  • Hi, Darren!

    Just wanted to let you know that the “5 Reasons Why You Should Do Paid Reviews” link appears to be a broken link. It takes the reader to an error page.

    Thanks for this list of links! There are some great posts in this group!

    Regards,
