    [Comments] 3 Blogging Rules You Should Break
    Let me know in the comments! This guest post is by Anish Majumdar of DashAmerican.com. The most valuable piece of writing advice I ever got was from an editor at a print magazine after I’d handed in the first draft of an article. d spent hours poring over old issues to “get the tone right” and had fought my natural style every step of the way. The end result? returned draft shot through with corrections and a one-line response: “Write from the inside and trust that we’ll get it.”. You know them: keep pieces short. Use bullets. Link to other articles, etc. Make posts scannable.

    [Comments] 10 Of The Web’s Best Sidebars
    In my previous post on the best comment areas we saw that they used badges and rewards to “level up” their readers and make them feel invested in the site. Leave a comment and let me know which sidebar is your favorite. This guest post is by the Blog Tyrant. The sidebar is the second most important place on your site. It is where, after engaging with your content, people head over to subscribe to your list, follow you on Twitter, or buy your product. It is vital that you get it right. NOTE: You might also like the best About Us pages and the best Contact Us pages.

    [Comments] Why Measuring Success Using Social Media Tools Isn’t Always Cut and Dried
    Because I know Jason and stay up to date with his comings and goings, and because I comment back and forth on his various postings, I’m comfortable asking Jason for an introduction to some of the spirits people in this region, so that I, in turn, can introduce this woman to them and so that she might open up a sales channel. It lets me feel like I’m up to speed on what he’s been doing, plus it gives me the chance to promote his efforts when they seem interesting, and to comment on what he shares, to let him know I’m there.

    Friendly and open: user-friendly blogs with easy commenting. This guest post is by Melody McKinnon of Canadians Internet Business. The latest algorithm updates from Google have broken the hearts of many blog owners. The search engine appears to have lost interest in many of them. Yet on every website and blog I own, my attention from Google has increased—even on blogs less than a year old. Naturally, I want to stay in Google’s good books so I’ve given this a lot of thought. I’ve concluded that Google is simply looking for blogs with a personality worthy of its love.

    [Comments] Great Way To Help Clean Up Stumbleupon
    Subscribe to the comments for this post? Yes, that’s right. StumbleUpon has just released some fantastic improvements to its review pages. Rather than having the old way of a Helpful? Yes/No next to each reviewer, there is now a much more comprehensive Flag This menu. Don’t let the Flag this make you think it is only to report spam or offensive behavior. Personally, I liked the Helpful yes/no since I could see who I marked as helpful or not if I chose too, whereas now I’d need to click on the dropdown for each reviewer. Now you’ll have your say. Digg this!
