Top 10 Blogging Tips

1. Publish frequently.

2. Add a share button and share articles on Twitter, Facebook, Digg, and in yahoo groups.

3. Organize posts with consistent and specific labels.

4. Edit, spell check, and verify that all links work.

5. Moderate comments and require word verification to prevent spam.

6. List your blog in appropriate blog directories and aggregators. Many require a blog to be at least one month old and have a minimum number of posts before listing.

For gluten-free blogs, request to be added to the gluten-free news aggregator as soon as your blog is active. It now takes three to four weeks to be added to it. Foodie BlogRoll and Blog Catalog are good blog directories with many gluten-free blogs listed.

7. Provide email subscriptions using Feedburner.

8. Establish a blogroll and leave comments on other blogs.

9. Set up Google alerts for your topic. This will help you find the latest news and provide ideas for posts.

10. Be creative! Approaching topics from a unique perspective will draw readers and increase comments.
