Posted 17 Aug 2007 in Better Blogger

I was inspired by mwilliford’s series on 101 Steps to Becoming a Better Blogger (originally posted on Lifehack.org) to pursue each one of these 101 Steps to Becoming a Better Blogger.

My goal is to complete 2-3 a week, and that should mean that I finish this time next year, August 2008.

Monetization is nice, but becoming a better blogger – a communicator, writer and observer – is most important with this blog.

First things first, in the spirit of mwilliford’s series, you should do the following:

  1. Go to Popuri and check your Google PageRank, Alexa Rank, and Technorati rank. make a note of these so you’ll have something compare them to next summer.

  2. Make a note of the number of readers you have now. We’ll compare this next year too. I currently have 56 RSS readers and 100-125 unique page loads per day.

  1. Hey, thanks for the link. I’m Marcus. Nice to meet you. Since it appears that you will be following along with the series I will put a link in the posts for you. I like your blog and the way you have set up series on certain days. That is a great idea to get more readers. I might have to institute something like that. Keep up the good work and good luck in school (I’m in school too)

    • Great to meet you, Marcus! Definitely include me in the series. I am going to try to catch up with you. Just give me a few days! :) Good luck with classes! Mine don’t start until after Labor Day, so I have a few more weeks to hang out and relax!

  2. great to have you participating. I have the first post up with a link to you. Thanks

    • Thanks a lot, Marcus! :)

    I need to create a blog on my clients website from my machine. Could someone direct me to a tutorial about how to create a blog on a remote server? I think this one is for creating one to be accessed from your own machine, isn’t it? Thanks so much!
