Blogging Tips in 140 Characters or Less

Posted By Darren Rowse 27th of September 2009 Miscellaneous Blog Tips 0 Comments

A couple of days back I tweeted this question:

“Question: what’s your #1 blog tip in 140 characters or less? GO!'”

Over the next hour or two a lot of great responses came in – so I thought I’d post a link to them today because I think in the midst of them is a lot of wisdom. Below is a screen shot of the first 11 responses – but for the full thread of all replies to that original tweet check out the thread on twitoaster.


What would you add? What’s your #1 blog tip (keep it short).
