Have you read any good blog posts this week? I have, and now that the weekend is approaching, I’ll tell you which were my favorites. Each one of them received a friendly stumble from yours truly. So, let’s start.
- Court’s 11 Unescapable Steps To WordPress Synergy tells you which things to setup before you even start posting and two things you should consider setting up after you’ve created some content.
- “Do You Have A Blog Commenting Strategy?” I don’t, but Caroline sure has. And she explains it in detail, so you can develop one for yourself.
- I nearly would have missed Caroline’s post, had it not been for Darren’s “11 Tips for Getting Your Comments Noticed on a Popular Blog“. Two posts complementing each other perfectly. And who could know better how to catch a ProBlogger’s attention than Darren?
- Not motivated? No ideas? Then Blogging Tune’s “15 Tips To Boost Your Productivity When Blogging” might be right for you. Give it a try.
- If you aren’t sure how to structure your theme, Chris tells you “5 Items Your Blog Sidebar Must Have” at BloggingTips. Listen to him. He knows what he’s talking about.
- Over at Vandelay Design Steven published his “Blogger’s Guide to Creating Better Content“. Surely something we should all take to heart (Yeah, especially me. I know *g*).
- While I’m talking about taking things to heart - You should definitely read (and maybe memorize) the “12 Basic On-Site SEO Tactics for Optimized Results” at Search Engine Journal. Well assembled list.
- What software do you use to write your posts? I’ve tried several, but somehow always returned to WordPress’ simple editor. In case you’re a Live Writer user, you should check out Mani’s list of “10 powerful Windows Live writer plugins for bloggers“.
I hope you enjoy reading this selection of posts as much as I did. If you do, let the authors know.

Btw, recent studies* have shown that active stumblers appear at least 10% friendlier than non-stumblers.
