Blogging tips meme

I got tagged for a meme by Whirling Dervish at stoneymoss. This meme is interesting in that it addresses blogging behavior, and also tries to incorporate the sort of upmod/downmod capability seen on many discussion forum softwares these days. A very late-90s meme.

-Start Copy-

It’s very simple. When this is passed on to you, copy the whole thing, skim the list and put a * star beside those that you like. (Check out especially the * starred ones.)
Add the next number (1. 2. 3. 4. 5., etc.) and write your own blogging tip for other bloggers. Try to make your tip general.

After that, tag 10 other people. Link love some friends!

Just think- if 10 people start this, the 10 people pass it onto another 10 people, you have 100 links already!

1. Look, read, and learn. ******

2. Be, EXCELLENT to each other. ****
Bush Mackel

3. Don’t let money change ya! *
The Random Forest

4. Always reply to your comments. ******
The Kat House

5. Link liberally — it keeps you and your friends afloat in the Sea of Technorati. ***
Chip's Quips

6. Don’t give up - persistence is fertile. *****
Velcro City

7. Give link credit where credit is due. *******
SF Signal

8. Pictures say a thousand words and can usually add to any post.*****

9. Participating in ‘memes’ is a destructive habit and should be avoided at all costs. **
Neth Space

10. Don’t hold back.***
A Dribble of Ink

11. Short Fiction is the bomb!*
The Soulless Machine Review

12. Redesign your site often. Visual boredom breeds textual complacency. *
9 to 5 Poet

13. Labels--not too many, not too few--help your readers browse.**

14. Get involved in a blog community like Poetry Thursday- this adds creative inspiration to your blog and adds instant visitors- as well as connects you with other bloggers with similar interests.*

15. Host a blog carnival. Not only do you get to read a lot of great posts, you get to meet a lot of great people.
Knocking From Inside

-End Copy-

I'm not going to tag 10 people, 'cause I'm not sure such rapid proliferation is actually a good thing. So:

Maliha at Lightness of Being
Susan at Rickety Contrivances of Doing Good
Dale at mole

You all are now "it". You know what to do...
