David Pollard over at How to Save the World has an interesting post on how to get your blog discovered (here). He draws analogies with getting a book discovered.
Some of the things he recommends are:
- that blog software developers add the capability for bloggers to add standardized blog-jackets to their blogs
- that Amazon get in the game and list all blogs as they list books
- that blog software developers incorporate simple ways to create samplers that make sense when printed for the f2f crowd
- partnerships with hard copy pubs that cater to the same crowds
That also reminded me of a post that Mike Manuel over at Media Guerrilla (here) wrote about the importance of knowing those folks that have blogs in the long tail.
