Blogging Tips…

Posted by tothewire on November 28, 2008

this-is-the-question1Hello Bloggers!  Are you looking to get some more “hits” on your blog?  Have you been wondering how some bloggs are getting so many hits? Here is a few tips…

Blogging made easy in 3 easy steps! 

blogs1) If you are wanting to entice more readers to visit your blog…then you need to go here: http://alphainventions.com

 AlphaInventions is a web page that acts as a of live blog ticker  Each time someone writes a new post or updates an old one that is visible to the various pinging services, AlphaInventions loads the main page for people to see, together with the link so those who like what they see can visit that blog for a closer examination. Look quick, though, or that blog will be gone, replaced by another blog some seconds fresher. Or else use the “Pause” and examine a blog that interests you at your leisure.

We subscribed to Alpha Inventions and you can too!   Although it is free for anyone to utilize, if you  subscribe Cheru sends you an AIID # and your blog will  get 100% longer play time in the reading cycle!  

We feel subscribing is not only a smart way to advertise your site, but be apart of helping a guy who deserves the credit… Cheru Jackson.   

Read more about AlphaInventions here: http://alphainventions.wordpress.com/2008/09/22/alpha-inventions/

You can paste your link by visiting the site, and watch as it is “bumped” by another!  I love the idea and always find a great site to visit while I am there!

bloggers-blog2) Update your blog often!This is another great way to build faithful readers!  Give them new things to read daily!  This is such an important step!  The more stories you post, the more readers you will accumulate.  It helps if you put a page break in post to allow your readers to view more post on your home page.  This gives your readers choices on which post appeal to them.  CLICK HERE TO SEE OUR EXAMPLE:  https://tothewire.wordpress.com/

thumbs-up3 )Remember visiting other blogs and leaving a comment is another great way to let readers and other bloggers know where your blog is as well!

Our blog admins’ always visit the sites from other bloggers when they post a comment here.  AND if we like the blog we advertise it here on our site either in a comment under the comment left OR if we really like the blog we give it a thumbs up on our weekly Bloggers helping Bloggers post!

    OK…I’m here because of alphainventions 😀 Not only that, you have an interesting blog too! See? The darned site works. Every time my blog managed to get on to alphainventions, my hit counter for those days went off the charts. Very cool. Not only that, I get to visit even more cool sites like yours (which I dig because you pretty much cover all points of view). Good job guys.




  8. tothewire said

    Hey there! Thank you! We love feed back! I would love to visit your site, but there isn’t a link in your post…maybe you could post it for us?

    If you want some tips on how to be a more effective writer you really should take some tips from writista! This site has grammar do’s and don’ts a long with spelling tips! It is full of information for anyone who likes to write!



  13. Here are my three really easy blogging tips:
    Interesting content, well-written copy, and a clean lay-out.


  14. okathleen said

    I agree with all your tips, perhaps ask a question early on in your copy, then there is more of a reason to comment…

    I keep bumping you off (and I suspect getting bumped off by you) the Alphainventions reading cycle. And I have been meaning to drop a line or two … well better late that never.

    Besides, you have a great blog going.

    Just a caution: Alphainventions could be addicting. Be careful :-))

    I have made great many friends on Alphainventions. So that is one more advantage of being on AI.

    I will try out the page break thingy on my blog – not sure if Blogger supports it – thanks for the advise though.



  16. Lawman2 said

    hey there amitabh! going to your site now to check it out!we usually leave a line of some kind if we bump someone…
    we really do like checking out other blogs we are read aholics here!


  17. okathleen said

    Hi there I like the layout using page break, how do I do that, on wordpress?

    It’s all in the presentation…



  18. Lawman2 said

    page break is the button just left of the spell check on the editorial box!hey okathleen,love your blog!great writing style! http://www.okathleen.wordpress.com/


  19. okathleen said

    Thank you, I’ll have a go at that.

    And thanks for the comments on my blog, as regards life expectancy in marriage, perhaps it depends on what sort of marriage it is!!



  20. Lawman2 said

    answer to your riddle was flea,i wouldn’t have guessed it without your answer worlds shortest poem…


  21. okathleen said

    Two reasons for the riddle:

    1, I’m reading the diary of Samuel Pepys and his concerns about the Bubonic Plague in London in the 1600’s.

    2, I like the Richard Wiseman blog, he gets lot of traffic, through I think, his intriguing puzzles and queries.

    Please visit again! I update daily.
