One of the optional suggestions for week 4’s assignment was to check out Technorati. From what I can tell, it’s sort of a blog-tracking site. While there, you can figure out how to improve your own blog, search for valuable blogs, read what’s “hot” and see the top ranked and most visited blogs. I’ll be honest, while first there, I searched for some Great Dane blogs, felt disappointed by the results, and left. I felt comfortable with my effort, though small, and moved on. While reading one of the blogs I follow, GetRichSlowly, one of the guest posters commented that his blog had recently been named as one of the top 50 in a certain category on Technorati. Hmm, fate seems to be telling me I need to spend a little more time here. I would like to improve my blog, so as I explore Technorati, maybe you’ll see the benefits!
The other random thing I came across, thanks to wordpress’s blog, is Plinky! The basic premise behind Plinky is that “you have lots to share” and they can help. Each weekday, Plinky posts a new prompt, and you can add it right into your blog. Today’s post done, easy as one, two, three! I am going to try and figure out how to do it…soon, I hope : )
until I Plinky, ekg
