Write When You Get A Brainwave!
Originally uploaded by Silvia de Luque.
Thinking in retrospect Suddenly it dawned on me to look back at some of the posts I had written and recollect the thoughts and ideas that went into those articles. It's still early in the New Year and what better time than to bring forward these articles with internal links to them (hint, hint) so as to make it easy for those who are interested to click through to those posts in my portfolio. That is, if you are reading this post now.
In fact, much has been written about creating internal links that will help the search bots to better find the way to your old posts. Am I promoting myself? Well, yes and no. To be honest, I'm creating links back to those old articles in the hope that they will attract the search engine spiders to sniff at the trail. It's an idea that's worth experimenting, isn't it?
Okay, it's not as if this is something new. It's just a brainwave that comes when the brain cells is fully charged!
I happened to sneak back into an old post "10 Great Articles of 2007..." and that got me thinking about writing this post (hint, hint, again). Talk about some bloggers who begrudge the fact that the writer's block is, more often than not, starring them in the face.
Let me recollect this extract from "10 Great Articles..." :
Like anything in life, we need guidance. We need to go through the learning curve. We need exchanges of good ideas and profound insights to become better bloggers.
Each one of us does not have all the answers, so who do we turn to for the right answers? Yes, peer bloggers. There are many of them who can show us tips and tricks of blogging because they themselves have gone through the grind and learn a lot from their own blogging experience.
Here are some of my most read posts that have garnered comments by readers coming mainly from search engine traffic and other links (hint, hint) :
