It seems like everyone has a blog these days, and cutting through the crowd feels like a really hard job. Sometimes it can feel like a lonely experience, talking to an empty comment wall! While a select number of bloggers seem to be getting a lot of press, it can feel like you’re being overlooked – when the simple fact of the matter is that sometimes it’s just that visibility begets more visibility. I was discussing blogger visibility on twitter with @lapocketrocket, @literalgemini, @deepqueendiva and @blogtobealive and we all thought doing a weekly blog roundup was a super idea. So, I thought I would introduce a new regular post on my blog, one where I can help build community and promote other bloggers.
I’d remembered seeing a link script on Meet Me at Mike’s, which lets readers submit a link to a blog entry. It seems like a really awesome way to let you share links from your blog, or other people’s blogs, so other readers can take a look!
So, let’s kick this experiment off. Pick a post from your blog that you are most proud of this week, and post it using this McLinky doobywacker. Then go and read some of the links other bloggers have posted! Do make sure that you post just one, your BEST one, and that you include the direct link to the post as well as a description that will entice readers to your entry.
