8 Blog Posts Worth Your Time

Category : writing

I thought it was time to dig through my del.icio.us account and highlight some of the many posts and articles I’ve bookmarked recently. Here are some of my favorites:

  • 12 WordPress Editors you can choose: Want to try something else besides the boring old WordPress editor? I’m looking forward to getting some time to try some of these out.
  • Landing Page Testing: How Much Is Too Much?: I really like this post from Jon Miller at Marketo. He points out that not every site has the same amount of conversion traffic and you should take that into consideration when testing.

That should keep you reading for awhile! Hope you find something you like.

These are all great articles.. thanks! Besides creating valuable content, which is priority #1, you should also strive to make your blog user-friendly.. Like installing the Google 404 Plugin, which helps site visitors alot.

Patrick,

I’m so glad you liked my article “Is Social Media Marketing Sustainable?” It’s incentive to sit down and write some more. The rest are great too!

I enjoyed the RSS and Google Reader tutorial… as so many people, even some computer professionals don’t use RSS yet – and this is a great one to share with them.

Cheers,

Brett

Thanks a lot for the link, glad you liked my post!

Hey Patrick,

Thanks for linking to my article. Glad you liked it and I appreciate you sharing. One request… would you mind linking to the original post on my blog?

Thanks!!!

Thanks for this, Pat. I appreciate these “link roundup” type posts, as they help aggregate industry news that I might otherwise miss.

@AskApache: Thanks for the tip!

@Denver SEO: Please do write some more. You had alot of good points in your post.

@Karthik: No problem! It’s fun to highlight great content

@Stoney: Changed the link – it’s now pointing at your blog.

@Adam: I’m glad you like these! I’m always big on original content, but also like to recognize other great writing as well.

I agree that original content is ideal most of the time. But, pointing out other great writing from time to time is definitely a good thing.

These are great articles, Patrick.
Thanks for the tips!

I found the article on A Beginner’s Guide to RSS and Google Reader to be particularly useful. I am fairly new to this realm of the internet and you can rest assure I will spend a lot of time reading, then re-reading these articles. Good stuff!
