Links for 3rd Day of Blog Class

Published November 21, 2010 by Dr. Tammy Powley

For our third class, we will consider blog aggregators. Google has a good, easy to use reader: Google Reader. It is free, and if you already have a google account, you just log in and can start adding blogs to your reader right away.

How to track stats is also a topic we will discuss. You can get some free stats counters at these sites:

www.liveblogstats.com/

tracker.icerocket.com/

www.googlerankings.com/

Trends and key words will help you keep track of web trends, which can aid in driving traffic to your blog:

Finally, we’ll end with some brainstorming on what exactly to blog about. I found a really good blog post on that here:

  • Can I be on your list for the fall class? I am working on a blog for my agency. We have no other blogs so this will be our first. I would like to learn how to create and manage a successful blog.
