Tips for Setting Up Your Blog

I found  a blog post that I thought was just brilliant.  Number one because the topic was interesting, and number two, because the post itself encouraged you to read further into the blog.

The post is Blog Setup: 40 Practical Tips.  The title itself is great, it is interesting and Google is going to love it.  Notice how the keywords come first, very important for SEO.  The post caught my eye because I am always looking for tips on how to set up a blog.  I am always starting new blogs, and anything that makes blogging easier or more profitable is of interest to me.

Opening the post I was surprised to find 40 links dealing with all sorts of blog topics.  Now I was just a bit annoyed that I would have to do more clicking to get the information I was after, but I had to admire the technique.   For the most part the links were to other posts in the same blog, but some were to outside posts.  All look interesting and I am going to be spending some time checking out the links.

The links were organized by topic. I found that very helpful, it is easy to get put off by a long list of random links.  With the links organized into sections it was easy to jump from topic to topic. For instance, I skipped right over the basics and went straight to the section on SEO and analytics.  Someone just starting out would probably start with the links on how to choose a hosting account.

All in all a great post from many different stand points. I think it is a format that I will be using in the future!
