Tips, pt. 1

This month's issue of Fast Company Magazine has some tips for blogging 'style' and etiquette.
"Creating a business blog is a lot like hosting a cocktail party: You're networking with customers in a low-pressure setting and, at best, nurturing great relationships."

Blogging consultants Elizabeth Albrycht and Andy Lark suggest:

Tip #1

1. Make Introductions.

A good host connects guests. Albrycht recommends spending 30 to 60 minutes a day scanning feeds from your favorite blogs. Maintain a blogroll, linking readers to blogs you recommend, and use the trackback function on most blog publishing programs to notify other bloggers by email when you cite them. Chances are, those grateful peers will return the favor.

More to come. Questions?
