13 of the Best WordPress Blogging Tips of the Week

by Extreme John on December 13, 2009

Wordpress Blogging Tips for Bloggers

I just finished writing my UFC 107 Results and now it’s time for my weekly blog thing. Each week I post a recap of the excellent blogging tips and other great blog posts that I have collected during the course of the week and share it here on my blog, I also include links to my most popular posts over the last week as well.

I call this series the Sunday Smash, which is basically my version of a mashup for the week and it gives me a chance to spread some Do Follow link luv on to other blogs that I check out, in some cases those bloggers are nice enough to shoot me a few backlinks in return. I actively read over 100 various blogs during the course of the week on everything from business tips, SEO tips, blogging tips and of course some excellent blogs on mixed martial arts.

Thanks again John.

I feel about being so lame on returning comments and links and stuff. But here’s a proposal for you:

Is there anything technical in WordPress that confounds you, that you want to know more about? If so, let me know and I’ll crank out a “Sponsored Post” for you on WIAW. You’ve been really good about linking to my content, I’d really be delighted to unravel some of WordPress’s finer points for you.
