An Effective Legal Blogging Strategy in 323 Words

1. Read other blogger’s blogs

The reason that bloggers began blogging, way back before search engines even existed, is because they wanted to talk about the nerdy shit that they love with fellow nerds who also wanted to talk about it.

The first step in effective blogging is finding other bloggers who have interests similar to yours, and reading their blog posts.

TIP: Don’t forget to bookmark the blogs that you like the best in your web browser.

After you’ve spent some time reading about the nerdy stuff that you love talking about, you will certainly have formed an opinion based on what you’ve read.

At this point, do the following:

Make sure you link to the blog post that inspired your opinion, as well as attribute the author by linking to her Twitter page.
