|"Seeking new blogs and great blogging tips, boldly blogging where no one has blogged before."|
A while ago we asked you if you'd be interested in some new features here at The Blog Guidebook. Here's where we are:
1. A blog critique program - for a minimal fee we would critique your blog, giving you pointers on how to make your blog better. We got quite a nice response on this, and will be setting up a "waiting list" for whoever would like to sign up for this service. We will be charging $5 for a critique and short response to each blog. We will hopefully be able to critique 2-3 blogs per week.
2. Blog 4 You - looking for bloggers who would like to blog on other people's blogs, hopefully leading to paid writing positions etc. Blog 4 You is the idea that there are bloggers who need a break and are looking for great writers/bloggers to fill in for them, or possibly run their blog while they are on vacation or having babies etc. We received three or four responses to this question. So far it looks like there would be no remuneration for this, but you would be able to get your name out into other blogging areas. We will be implementing this behind the scenes, so if you are interested in blogging for another blogger, or you are searching for bloggers to take over your blog, just drop us an email and we'll keep a list to match bloggers up with eachother...(does that make sense?).
3. Did you choose to install LinkWithin? We tried it and liked it, but decided it was too cluttery. We may get back to it at some point in the future.
4. What happened to Linky Tools? What effect (if any) did the changes in Linky Tools have on you and your linkies? We'd love to know how you feel about the fees and changes at Linky Tools.
Our first in the Beginning Blogging Class series will be debuting in the next month or so.
We are excited to be working some awesome guest bloggers.
Blog Critique (is my blog okay?) - Coming Soon
Blog Glossary (what does it all mean?) - Coming Soon
Thanks again for staying with us on the blog journey in 2011...we are all going to learn something new this year!
