  1. This is a very useful list many people should have to make their blogging easier.

    Personally I try to tie in current events to my blog posts at least on my personal blog. I am trying to move that way with my small business blog.

  2. “Add a picture.”

    It’s amazing what one simple little image can do to liven up a blog post. I grab mine mostly from Flickr (with proper credit of course). And it goes a long way (in my opinion) in capturing people’s attention, etc.

    The other thing I think is extremely helpful, especially if you author a small business blog, is screencast tutorials. Jing and Screenr are two services that work extremely well for this. For example, this is an old and outdated Facebook FBML Tutorial that I did: It’s up to 22,000+ views on Facebook. Not bad eh?
