I get emails several times a week from bloggers who have questions about all aspects of blog parties:
- What is a blog party anyways?
- How do I host a link party?
- How exactly do I link up?
- What's a link back?
Like my other series (Commenting 101 and Blogging Myths), this one will start pretty basic and will move forward from there. I know there are some people out there who are brand new to blogging and don't know what a link party/blog party is, or how to join them.
I plan on covering topics geared for bloggers who want to link up as well as for bloggers who want to host their own parties.
There are so many of blog parties out there, and I've seen single posts linked to as many as 50 or 60. What should and could be a useful tool for bloggers who link up as well as bloggers who host has turned into a bit of a three ring circus.
I know there are some readers and bloggers out there who won't agree with everything I share, but I'm okay with that. It's the main reason I held off for so long on writing this series, but I'm hoping that bloggers will read it and maybe link parties can become great sources of traffic for those of us who link up and for those of us who host.
I'll aim to post something related to the series once a week, so I hope you'll tune in.
I have a pretty good list of topics to cover, but I am interested to see what you'd like to learn about.
