Do you pay attention to the list of links WordPress puts at the end of your blog posts that it calls, “Possibly related posts?” I often find that the articles in the list provide great new insights into the topic of the post itself by experts I didn’t even know existed. Since some of the posts listed are my own, it may also remind me to create backlinks to previous posts that are related to the current one. (See the article below on why blacklinks your stats.)
Today I followed a link at the bottom of one of my posts for bloggers, and found a review of The Huffington Post Complete Guide to Blogging. It sounds like a great book, an anthology with pieces by all kinds of experienced bloggers on how to have a successful blog. It’s edited by famed columnist Ariana Huffington, creator of the blog-filled news site The Huffington Post, and published by Simon and Schuster. You can see the book and order it here: The Huffington Post Complete Guide to Blogging.
I bought the book this morning from Amazon.com (for $.94 gently used!) and while I was there, also bought ProBlogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income by my Blogging God, Guru, and Guide, Darren Rowse, whose daily posts on ProBlogger I follow. In case you hadn’t guessed, I am SERIOUS about blogging. I think it’s the best thing to hit astrology since AstroDataBank’s Birthdata Collection of Notables. It’s a way to form an astrology community whose connections don’t depend on attending expensive astrology conferences.
